I need some help in finding a wide-angle lens for my Nikon D70. Nikon lenses are extremely expensive!!!!
Since I´m no professional, I think I could just stand with some cheaper lenses.
So, anyone could advise me in some brand or model that could be less exprensive?

Thank you in advance for your help

Sigma produce Nikon compatible lenses that are good quality and generally cheaper than the Nikon alternative.

i was just gonna ask about the same question, just a little different.

the nikkor lens AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor 12-24mm f sounds pretty interesting cause zooming would go from wideangle up to 36mm (in 35mm format). unfortunately pricing is about $900. so my two questions would be

a. is there an acceptable cheaper alternative

b. does somebody know where i can find example fotos taken in 12 and 24mm (resp. 18 and 36mm in 35mm format)for an impression of the lenses range

last question ismainly because i am new to wide angle photography, but i am certain that i will like it ^^

tanks in advance!

Many reviews quote that the sigma 12-24 is excellent. The price is definitively lower.
