    Limited only to Nikkor lenses? Tamron 11-16 f2.8 is also quite good for its price now

    You using for landscape or events? If landscape u can go for 10-24 as you do not need a high aperture for landscape... Most will set at f8 onwards as you do not need a blur background and for night shots you can get the star effect on lighting...

    I think you'd better go google about your lens choices and read reviews before asking here when you do not know anything about what you wanna get. Btw variable aperture means that the F stop will change as you zoom in or out. In any case I would still recommend tokina 11-16. Not only does it have a fixed aperture of 2.8, it is also Te cheapest option of the lot now (can get one used for abt 700 dollars)

    Another vote for the Tokina 11-16 instead of these 2. If 2nd hand sells at $700, then I suggest TS to just get it from Technogadget at $800 better.

    This lens is really good

    AF issue? Where didn't read that? O.o. The only issue relating to the AF is that it lacks a built in motor. But that should not be a problem in the D7k

    Oh our opinions are for the version 1. Makes no sense to spend more on a second version if the first one already perform so well

    What if the second is significantly better?

    Anyway, another up for Tokina 11-16. During events, there are a lot of times when you want to shoot wide open. If you have a variable aperture, your aperture will keep changing when you zoom. This may not be an issue in good light, but in low light when you still want to use the lowest possible ISO for the situation while having an acceptable shutter speed, it becomes extremely irritating when you either have to keep changing the ISO as you zoom or set it to a very high value and leave it there. Although, one way to counter this is to use manual mode and Auto ISO.

    That will be depending in Te camera. A higher end camera will give you a faster speed due tot e more powerful inboard motor
