Hi guys, I'm quite new to wide lenses, was wondering if you guys can offer me some tips.
My widest lens now is a 24-85mm on a crop body. Which isn't very wide of course, but I use it mainly for instances where I need a zoom. Otherwise I'm usually on primes.
What I failed to consider is that sometimes the sky looks nice! And otherwise, wide angle shots can sometimes be fun. (I'm usually a tele person.)
I'm considering between the cheap (maybe not that cheap) manual fisheye, Zenitar 16mm F2.8, or the 12-24mm Tokina F4 UWA.
I believe at the widest setting they're both equally wide, if the fish is not wider...
And no, the crop factor on fisheye doesn't bother me, I'm not after 180 degree view, just slightly ultra-wide is fine.
Price wise, the manual fish is half of it. One of the main concerns for me, however, I'm wondering if its worth to invest abit more for a good lens... :S
All in all, I'm still confused and can't work out a deciding factors... Wondering if all ye fellow experienced CSers can offer some insight or ask some thought provoking questions that can lead me to my decision?
thanks lots in advance!
