Hello Everyone,

I am looking at buying a wide angle lens and am interested in one or other of the two Nikons. I have read various threads and think I understand the pros and cons of each. It seems to me that the 12-24 provides better image quality but: costs more, has exposed front element, cant use filters and less useful as a walk around lens. I dont have access to either lens, so I cant play around with them. The one aspect I have difficulty assessing is whether the difference between 14 and 16mm is that significant. Just to complicate the question, I should add that I am still finding my way photographically and am uncertain of what my real area of interest will be longer term. That said, I am currently doing mostly landscape but would like to do some portraits if I can ever find willing subjects. Finally, could I combine the 16-35 with a prime lens to achieve the same coverage for a cost equivalent to the 14-24?

Regards,

John
