#13. "RE: Should I consider getting a Nikon D7000?"
In response to In response to 11


St Petersburg, RU
          

It is not bad stopped down in the middle range but there is obvious weakness at FL's greater than 130mm and is pretty mediocre at 200mm wide open. A wide prime, any of them would run circles around the wide end of a 18-200 in terms of distortion, resolving power, light sensitivity, color and contrast. The 10-20 is a very popular lens at 18mm cleanly outperforms the 18-200 but note that it is not great for architecture due to complex distortion. It is probably the most popular landscape lens sold. The type of distortion it exhibits is not a problem for landscapes, only straight lines that run in both horizontal and vertical axis's, like a building. You would notice it before the rest of us since you are working with a view camera what has the ability to shift and tilt the focal plane to correct for wide angle distortion when shooting a subject below or above the center line. All wide angle lenses on DSLRs pose this problem to some degree, which is why PC lenses were developed. For me, my widest quality prime is the 24 1.4 so I am in search of a good 12 to 16 prime if my budget could afford it. There is a cheap 14 2.8 MF (for the Fx D800) that would fit the bill for only $429 for the version that has a Nikon focus confirm chip installed. For DX,(D7000) I will continue to use the Sigma 10-20 3.5
