    WTB Super wide nikon lens for DX camera

    by Dug » Sat May 01, 2010 6:23 pm

    I have a friend who is using my Sigma 10 20 to photograph house interiors at the moment.

    I get the feeling if I ever want to see my lens again she will need to buy one :roll:

    Anyone getting rid of something like this ?

    Ask if you get a good price for 2 :wink:

    let me know if you plan to buy one OS and we can share postage.

    Actually the plan is to pick one up in Singapore on my honeymoon in about a month.

    Have a think about the Tokina 11-16. By all accounts it is a ripper and its a 2.8. I had the Sigma and didn't like it in terms of sharpness compared to all my other Nikon lenses.

    She is using it to get images as references for paintings

    so critical sharpness is less important than price :D

    I was considering this over the Sigma, but unfortunately it won't autofocus on my D5000 :(

    whats the go here

    this is a response to sell an item on the 1st or second posting in reply to a thread that had its last posting (Posted: Mon May 03, 2010 7:18 am) in "may 2010" and even though "I am probably wrong" smacks of scamming


    there are too many scams around

    I thought there were rules about selling and buying onsite re minimum postings to sell/buy

    If this is a legitimate posting I do so sincerely appologise
