Thread: Wide-angle lenses

    Default Wide-angle lenses

    Hi, I have been ogling the nikkor AF 14mm f/2.8D ED for a very long while, but found the price too steep.

    Are there any similiar lense on the tamron or sigma side?

    thanks

    There is, at least to my knowledge, a Sigma equivalent; not sure about the price though.

    Yes, both Tamron and Sigma has similar lens. Check their websites.

    They should cost S$1k+.

    because if you are not using FF, those are probably the widest you can get at relatively affordable prices.

    google up "tokina 12-24"... loads of information comparing all the ultra wide (sigma 10-20, tokina 12-24, tamron 11-18)

    Yes, lots on information on superwides... tested on Shutterbug Magazine, a certain character by the name of Ken not-so-Rockwell...

    but amongst the best is this...
