    Default Super wide angle lens recommandations

    Hi,
    Newbie here, would like to take advices on what super wide angle lens you guys will go for? or just go for a "normal" wide angle will do the job for landscape photography?

    for nikno, theres a nikkor wide angle. then theres a tokina 12-24, a tamron and also the sigma 10-20. all have advantages and disadvantages. if u google, there was a shoot out between all 4 i think. optically wise, i think nikkor and sigma are top of the list.
    but dont get it in your mind, that you need a super wide angle to shoot good landscape photography. some really good landscapes can also be shot with telephoto zooms... or 85 or 135mm primes... all down to how u like to shoot.

    i use a sigma 10-20mm. and that is the widest non fish eye digital lens. and i hope to get even wider. but those who wanted better quality may go for nikkor or tokina.

    i'm sorry if the canon/pentax/olympus/sony gets left out. maybe others can provide links to that.

    i don't think he was asking about the peleng. it's not really an everyday-use kinda lens. i for one dislike it

    if ur using canon, get the 10-22mm EF-S or sigma 10-20mm for $200 less. i tried the EF-S 10-22mm and i was

    Hi guys, wanna ask those who have wide-angle lens,

    Will a B+W MRC UV 77mm filter cause vignetting on a tokina 12-24mm?

    Gonna get the 12-24mm soon, but I dunno what brand of filter to get.

    Thanks!

    You can go to my PBase site and have a look for yourself what the Sigma 10-20 can do.

    Right away, I am still uploading now (Friday 7 PM) so more are coming.

    This was a 2 weeks trip to Switzerland with 4 mountains included.
    There you can realy see what a wide angle lens can do.

    enjoy

    See what Ken Rockwell has to say about the ultra wide angle lenses before you make an informed decision which one to buy.

    this was taken with my Nikon D 50, almost enteirely with my Sigma 10-20 and right out of the Camera. (JPEG finest).

    No PP, no adjustments, because when I looked at my about 1500 pics I gave up the thought of any such work.

    I paid 890.- incl/GST
