    your kit lens is enough to get MBS in.. but having a UWA will be nicer...

    With 11mm this is what I was able to capture:

    You cannot put your name as newbie alrdy lah. Must be Independent or Senior. But since Independent is full, guess you know where you belong...

    it depends on what are the things you want to fit into a frame. I even did a vertical shot at 18mm. http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4007/...0786f85256.jpg
    What I can suggest is to look at all the available photo on the internet, look at their composition and check their exif data to see at which focal length it was shot at. This way you can know for sure whether you need one.

    Tokina 11-16mm/2.8 cost around 900-950 new. You can get a used one around 700-800.

    Or consider the Sigma 10-20mm or Tokina 12-24mm if your budget is a little tighter.

    just get a small dry box first. Cheap and good. Around $25-35.
    You can do quite a lot with your kit lens for the time being.
