    For that budget, maybe the Sigma 10-20?

    Tamaron 11/16 f/2.8 is a great piece of work- but, I suspect a shade above your proposed budget.

    For Tamron version should be

    - 11-18mm F/4.5-5.6
    - 10-24mm F/3.5-4.5

    instead.
    NIKON D90 (2008-2010), D700 (2010-2012), D800 (2012-2014), DF (Dec 2013-Sep 2017)

    With this budget only Tamron 10-24mm and the most lightweight & cheaper among all UWA zoom lens.

    well 12-24 tokina well be just nice in the budget.
    i would recommend tokina more than other simply because of the lens build
    internal focusing and zooming !!

    My bad. It is tikona and not tamaron.

    (moral of the story #1: partying and posting do not mix, however simple it may seem)
    (#2: avoid posting on weekends, when the probability of partying is higher.)

    Moral of the story#1 Check your spelling before clicking the 'post reply' button

    Moral of the story#2 Posting wrong info and then give excuses follow by another post with spelling mistakes is not cool!

    12-24 is better. More flexible for the zoom range. 11-16 is almost like a prime.

    with your Budget I think u can consider Sigma 10-22? the variable aperture version (not the fixed f3.5 version as that cost S$1K +-)
