    Ah hah! That's what I want to hear.

    Buy buy buy!! But really, think carefully about what you want to buy, based on what improvements you want over your kit lens. Remember to get something that will be wide enough for your needs...or long enough, depending on what you want to do.

    Yes, definitely. So think long term. If you look at two lenses, one being more expensive but much more versatile and another lens being cheaper but less versatile, I think you'd be better off just springing for a good one to start off with. Otherwise you'd be wanting something better in the end and will still buy it sometime down the track. That's not to say that you should jump straight at a 200-400mm f/4! But what I mean is to buy the best that you can afford, amongst the things that you are sure you can use.

    If you feel that 20mm is wide enough, just get the D70 kit lens. I REALLY don't think there is any appriciable difference in sharpness for the 20mm f2.8 and the D70 kit lens at f5.6.

    The d70 kit lens is very sharp. Go to slrgear.com to read the reviews on it.

    If you are richer, get the nikon 12-24 lor.

    Since your D50 already came with the 18-55mm, suggest you go straight for the AF-S DX 12-24mm f/4G IF-ED . That is, if you don't mind it being a DX lens and you don't mind a zoom instead of a prime. The 18-70mm, although obviously better than your current kit lens, won't give you much of a kick if you are into landscape. And no point selling your current kit lens as it doesn't command much resale value.

    True, like what bowwow mentioned earlier, a telephoto can also be a landscape lens but I'm suggesting the AF-S DX 12-24mm f/4G based on the fact that you wanted a wide lens.

I also wouldn't consider 20mm to be very wide if you factor in the 1.5X FOV crop factor.

    yo bro, how muchy is the 12-24mm Tokina???

    Good for building/architectural (churches, temple, unique building etc etc)shooting??

    According to the price list in the Nikon forums, it's going for $889 at CP...but w/o GST though. Grey at TCW @ $870...don't know if it includes GST. Best is to call for availability and prices before you go.

    Check out this review:

    Might put you at ease. I reckon the Nikon mount will perform just as well.
