Hello there,

I am looking for a good wide-angle lens, especially for landscape and seascape. I am currently using the standard 18-55 lens which came with my D300 but I feel that I should go for something better than that.

I am reading that there are quite a few good lenses for landscape shooting, like the Bower 14mm f/2.8 Ultra Wide Angle (but it's manual focus) , the Sigma 10-20mm f/4-5.6D EX DC HSM and also Tokina 12-24mm f/4 AT-X 124 AF Pro DX II.

As you can understand from the above lenses I am looking to maintain my budget as low as possible.

Can you please prove experience/feedback for any of the above lens? Or perhaps any other?

thank you,
George
