    If you can't be more specific about your question, we are just as "caught up" as you are. At the very least, tell us what you intend to photograph.....

    for a DX body, 20mm is not wide enough for most landscape

    and for group photo, I try not to use wide angle.

    why don't consider Tamron 17-50 f2.8 instead?

    the 20 & 24 not very wide leh...

    the wide end of a standard zoom will be even better...

    also if using WA for people shots, using it for group shots will leave ur people at the side looking weird...

    If you are really into a WA for APSC, you will want a 10mm. 20mm on a D90 is not wide enough.

    I'm sure which WA is good in Nikon, but I'll suggest the Tokina 11-16 f2.8 anyway. Brilliant piece of glass

    Hi, 8-16mm (12-24mm) for DX body is good enough for landscape. It is 122 degree wide. On a 3D sweep panorama body, it is even wider than on DX body as this stitches the exposures taken by the camera.

    When i was using the D80, i had a little bit more love for the 20mm than the 24mm. But individual preference may vary. If u wanted something much wider, i suggest u choose a wide angle zoom, many options optimised for crop sensor cameras.
