I'm sure you all think about this too.

I am wondering how to get a little wider. I have a 24mm 2.8 prime now and that becomes a 36mm, not nearly enough.

I am wondering how to get to 24-28mm without breaking the bank, but with preserving sharp pictures with good saturation.

Please don't recommend the 17-35mm 2.8. If I could afford that I wouldn't be making this post. The new 12-18mm DX looks like it will be too expensive too.

Also, it would be helpful if I could find this lens used.

I am considering the following:

Sigma 17-35 2.8-4
Tokina 17mm prime (cheapest way to get to 25.5mm)
Nikon 18-35 (a little pricey)
Tokina or Tamron 19-35 (ironically I had the Tokina and sold it just before I decided to buy the D100)

I'm not considering the Sigma 15-30 because it is huge and has that bulbous front. I like street photography and it just stands way out.

Any thoughts on any of the above lenses on the D100 would be helpful. For example the Tonkina 19-35 had bad vignetting on my F65 but might be OK on the D100.
