    Hope to see more of your shots with the Nikkor 10-24.
    Actually if you are looking for lenses like the 10-24mm, you need to be prepared to camp for it at BnS section. They don't come as often as the cheaper lenses. Also, most people who have already bought it (like me) don't really find a reason to let it go. I camped for mine for quite a while, and got quite a good 2nd hand deal for it.

    Ya bro, been camping for weeks. Now i see only one guy selling a sigma 10-20mm HSM for $650. Might as well top up another $170 for a new Tamron 10-24mm. Lots of sigmas in the past. Supply must be dwindling.

    hmmm...

    So far all my lenses and cameras are bought new. Just my old Ai Ais lenses are bought 2nd hand (except the ones belonging to my dad).

    What to do... I worry too much I guess..

    I'm el-cheapo mah.. keke. But it help to resell and rebuy things as I need to. Although, most of the time it's just to buy, not to sell. I should empty my cabinet hmm... do I still need this 10-24mm?

    Exactly laddie, I don't want to wait forever - especially when I'm missing shooting opportunities! Lucky you and too bad for me then , but I'm going to move on and maximise its usage whenever I can. I'm a happy camper with my UWA and no longer need to hunt for a good one (until I go FF)! . I have one more lens to aim for (long zoom), it will take time and I'm not in a hurry... The rest will be in-between fixed focals.

    Well yes and no. I was still happily using the kit 18-105mm for landscape (and all purpose) and I still do. Just a matter of making do with what you have.

    If I need cash and decide to sell away the UWA, then I'll just go back to the kit prob will get rid of the ND filters also as prob can't stitch LE shots... or can't I?

    Yep it is
    I was posting that not so much as a question, but rather that it is possible if one wants to work around the problem.

    You're still in a dream. Do you need a "kick" to send you back to reality?
