    Currently have a 18-200mm and 35mm f/1.8. Also have an antique 50mm f/1.8 that I will rarely ever use.

    I was thinking of picking up a 10-24 or possibly the 10mm fisheye. :dunno:

    I have an itching to go wide. :x:


    Don't want to blow a lot on high dollar lenses though because I think I may go FX eventually.

    Any suggestions?

    the tokina 11-16 is a pretty damn nice lens. i owned 2 tokina 12-24 f/4's and thought they were absolutely terrible. the 11-16 is far nicer.

    it's also a great/easy lens to shoot with. the focus is only worth a damn up to 7 ft, so you always end up shooting it in manual/infinity. it's great at like 12-15mm f/8. very crisp.

    only problem is it's sold out everywhere. i was lucky to find one. $600 new

    If you dont want to worry about spending money, i'd say look at Tamron/Sigma/Tokina lenses.

    :cool: I'll look into that one.



    I was mainly thinking of lenses over $1k, but now that I looked specifically for expensive ones, there arent many DX lenses over $1k.

    Why are you looking for DX lenses if you are planning on going to FX eventually? It's best to spend the money once. :dunno:
