    I don't know about the optical quality... but it's 18-35mm, and only as wide as a standard kit lens. Are you sure 18mm (which on your D100 is going to behave like a 28mm lens on 35mm film) will be wide enough?

    Right. I don't usually go any further than 18mm, so I didn't need either, but if i do, than i'd sell my 18-35 and buy the Nikkor or Tokina 12-24. I don't like buying off camera brand lenses, but if I needed to go wide and was in a crunch, i'd buy the tokina.
