I still can't decide between these two lenses. I am trying to fill in a gap in my lenses that falls between (on DX) 16mm and 35mm. I would also like to use this on my F100.

My options are an older used Nikon 20-35mm, a newish/mintish 20mm 2.8 AF-D since they are readily available, or perhaps the new Tokina 16-28 2.8. The Tokina is a monster and really on the outside edge of my budget for this lens at $850. The 20-35mm is a great lens but buying a 10-20 year old plus lens at around $700-$750. The 20mm on the other hand is new or mint LNIB for $400 or so, and I am leaning towards the 20mm.

I have the new 35mm 1.8G (DX) so the 20-35mm would be good but I would basically have a 35mm 1.8 and a 35mm 2.8.

If I stick with the primes (I have the 35mm and 50mm 1.8G) the 20mm fits in pretty nicely and at that price leaves room to pick up a nice used 85mm 1.8 for almost less than the other two zooms... but not sure how useful a 20mm will be on my D7K DX sensor (though very useful on my F100).

Thanks for any suggestions. Scott
