    Hi Albert,

    I have the 10-24 Wide Angle Zoom from Nikkor and I'm very happy with it. There are cheaper alternatives, but I think it's a very good alternative considering that it manages to go very wide AND has a good coverage of focal lengths. You can use it as a walk-around lens if you're in a pinch, although I use the 35mm f/1.8 most of the time for that.

    Hi Albert, just go to the Forum Actions at the top of this page and edit the Signature in your Profile.

    I use the Tokina 11-16 as well. It is a great value for the money.

    I have the Nikkor 12-24mm Albert. A bit more solid than some of the others, but slightly less wide.
    The Tokina looks very good. Have a look at the minimal focus distance though, that might be important to you.

    So sorry FrankMi.
    I followed your instruction but still can't get the "edit signature". I checked with the Helps and can't get it either. What a dump am I !!!!

    It seems that UWA zooms are all pretty good except for the Tamron. I have the Tokina 12-24 f/4 for my DX camera and think it is wonderful. It is sharp, has good color fideltiy and contrast, and is built like a tank. I like that it goes up to 24mm, which is widish normal -- I have used this lens alone on some occasions, and I have a relatively low tolerance for UWA in many contexts. For me, 12mm is as wide as Ihave any interest in going. I have used it for architetural photography as well as general work.The Tokina 11-16mm just doesn't have enough zoom range to make me happy. But it is an f/2.8 lens, which many folks love. The Tokinas are often dinged for having too much susceptibility to flare, but flare is a general problem with UWAs, so you'll probably need to worry about it with any UWA you choose.

    The various Sigmas are also well-regarded by those who have used them. The 8-16mm is the widest of the UWAs, if that is to your liking, and has a reputation for being very sharp. The two 10-20mm lenses that Sigma makes each have fans. They are a tad less sharp than most of the other UWAs, but not enough to worry about.

    The various Nikon offerings are all excellent, and all pricey. The Nikon 14-24mm is the "gold standard" for FF UWAs, and is magical on a DX, too. But it is heavy and pricey. The 10-24 and 12-24 are both more expensive than the third party lenses listed, but are very capable lenses.

    In short, choose your focal length, aperture, and price point. If you need a focus motor in-lens, add that into your calculation. You really can't go wrong with any of the above lenses.

    Did Mark's clarification help with creating the signature, Albert?

    You're not a dump. Iirc you can only set a signature once you have reached ten posts.
