    The next lens I want to get is the Tokina 12-24, but times are tight right now. I was just wondering if anyone might be in the market for a macro lens and interested in a trade. I love my Tamron, but I often find gloomy Washington weather and my pop-up flash don't really help me in the macro department. Or should I just keep it, get a speedlight, and save for the Tokina? :hsughno:

    Hmm, I am thinking about it. I love shooting wide I just think that if I get rid of the 12-24 I should replace it with a 11-16 or something asap...

    Lemme know. I'm sure if I end up keeping the Tamron, I'll put it to good use.

    yeaaa I think if anything I will just outright sell the tokina 12-24 and buy a 11-16. I think that is my plan of action. In that case haha let me know if you are interested in the near future in buying it. I think you sell your tamron for a little more than the tokina is worth to

    ah nvm I didnt know that really. If I were to sell the 12-24 it would be for like 360-375. And I am still considering something in the range but I think I would prefer an 85 1.8 to the 90 2.8 macro.


    fuuuu I need to stay out of OTAP.

    I want to sell my 12-24 and get an 11-16. If I cant find a good deal I will save for an 80-200 2 ring.

    no problem. i should really just keep the tamron and try to take better advantage of it. it's definitely an awesome lens.

    Considering I've only used it a couple times and it's basically new, I'd like to get $400 shipped. Comes with everything including original box in perfect shape.
