I have a Nikon D50 with 2 lenses

- Nikkor 50mm f/1.8D - Tokina 100mm f/2.8 Macro

I`m thinking of completing these with one or 2 extra lenses but which should i buy ?

I would like a wide angle maybe fisheye , thinking of the Tokina 10-17mm f/3.5-4.5 fisheye or a Nikkor 10.5mm f/2.8 fisheye

Then i would like a small zoom like a Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8 or something similar.
Do you know of any lens which would be better then the Tamron ?

I could also sell my Nikkor 50mm and buy a Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 or a similar from Tokina ?

I like your focal range choices.

It all depends on what your looking to do, but personally Ifind the Tokina 12 - 24mm (effective 18 -36) f4 is a great all-arounder. I generally prefer primes myself, but there is really nothing currently available in a true w/a for cropped sensor slr's.The Tokina is a surprisingly nice lens & avery useful zoom range.

Fisheyes are fun for effects & playing around. I have some seen nice "art" photos from a dedicated fisheye shooter, so as usual itdepends on what one want's to do. . .
