    As soon as I sell my 18-70, my Axim, and my 70-300 G I will find a used one and make it my bitch.

    Then I will add an 35-70 f/2.8.

    And then I will complete my set with the Tokina 12-24 f/4.0.


    Not that any of you care..just saying.

    post much?

    I got the tokina 12-24 would recommend over sigma 10-22, unless you need the extra 2mm at the wide end.

    That's why I'm leaning towards the Tokina....I've read better stuff about it.

    That's not for a ways off, though..right now I'm lusting after the 80-200.

    not when you're putting 1 thought into 5 different posts, no. but if you're anything like me in this regard, you put them all in once post and call it a day.

    damn, take my post count, multiply it by 5 and that would be my "OMGhi2u OT post count".
