for double the price u get more thn twice img area, as in ur frame will include almost 4x more landscape.seanlim said:yea but its like double the price:what: ...anymore guys?
Not that I know of. There are closeup filters for lenses and extension tubes that allow you to get closer to your subject. But I don't know of anything that physically increases the focal length and hence the reach and change the field of view of a lens.seanlim said:Could i add a filter and make a 20mm become 40mm?:dunno:
filter i don't think so... i think ur talking about a 2x teleconverter...seanlim said:Could i add a filter and make a 20mm become 40mm?:dunno:
have you use before the Tokina 12-24mm?fWord said:Will get the Tokina 12-24mm if I were you. Consider that you may want to frame things differently each time you shoot, and if you're sticking to the usual 'touristy lookouts', there's not much zooming you can do with your feet. I also wouldn't consider 20mm to be very wide if you factor in the 1.5X FOV crop factor.
That's okay...I don't know how much a Nikon 12-24mm costs though, but it wouldn't be cheap. I only thought that it might interest you to have a lens that goes from 12-24mm instead of a straight 20mm prime. Imagine the framing possibilities you could have with a really wide lens. Personally, the widest I can get on my setup now is something around 28.8mm, and I have on more than a few occasions wanted to go wider than that. The 20mm prime will give you an equivalent of the FOV of a 30mm lens. Given the choice, I would definitely hope for something wider.seanlim said:im trying to stick to Nikon
why you want 20mm f2.8 for shooting landscape? If you have the nikon D70 kit lens, which is 18mm-70mm f3.5-4.5, it is just as good. There is a little more distortion using the kit lens but I think it is not very noticeable in landscape. not much straight lines.seanlim said:Hi...would AF 20mm F2.8D be recommended for landscape photography or are there better choices at ard the same price
