Folks, i'm another who's getting closer and closer to picking up a D700. I have a reasonable selection of FX primes (currently have a D300) and the 24-70 will have to wait until the wallet recovers.

However I have nothing shorter than the 35mm F2, and can't afford any current wide angle lens (i can only dream about the 14-24!) I'm therefore thinking about a decent older lens, ideally AF (but MF would be ok too) to save cash for now.

I've only owned nikon for a few months so know nothing about the older film generation lenses. Any recommendations? I'd also consider a wide angle zoom but it would have to be cheap and so i'd imagine the quality would severely suffer.

Any recommendations? All nikon's affordable new wide angle lenses seem to be DX only.
