Hi,
I got the Tokina 12-24 a week ago and so far I am very pleased.

Nikkor 12-24 mm is my favorite. I use mine quite often and you can buy it for less than $1,000.

I use a Tamron SP DI. 2.8 to 4.0. It's great in low light and still has good coner sharpness at it's widest angle. Off the top of my head I think it is 17mm.

I was going to get the Sigma 10-20 but didn't want to pay the price.

I picked up a brand new Sigma 15mm f/2.8 fisheye off ebay (cametacamera) for $299. It's wide, it's fun, and it can be converted to Rectilinear with free software and 1 click in Photoshop.

The fisheye is just too much fun for me. Sure it might get old, but I am going to take a lot of different and unique pictures until it does, then sell it and get something else. :-P

You will lose some off the sides when you go to rectilinear. It's really up to what you will use it for I guess. I shoot a lot of candids and random fun shots, so it suits me well.
