Well, my last post 'Wide Angle Options' got a little off topic.

I am trying to get under 28mm effective angle on the D100 for a reasonable price. There is no way I could afford the 17mm-35 2.8 or the 12mm-24mm 4.0. Also I don't want the Sigma 15-30 because it is just plain huge.

So far the best recommended options from the other posts seem to be the Tokina 17mm 3.5 and the Nikon 18-35 variable aperature. Can anyone concur with this or give other options? Any example shots would be greatly appreciated.

FYI - I am leaning towards the 17mm Tokina now because of the price and the fact that I prefer shooting with primes.

The reason I want something wider is that I want to do more environmental portraits out on the street or at events with that up-close feeling.
