    Hey,

    I was wondering if I can get any Nikon lens under 18mm for under $200.

    Help appreciated, Paul

    Not quite under 18mm BUT the Tokina "plastic wonder" 19-35mm zoom was under $200 brand new. It is a good lens for the $$ and probably obtainable used as it is discontinued.

    In my reviews, the Tokina 12-24 tested out pretty good.

    You might be able to pick one up used for around $300

    Yeah, and I'm David Hasselhoff. I'm from the Internet.

    In all seriousness, a proper wide angle lens goes for about $500 brand new.

    You most likely won't be able to find a wide angle lens for $200 or even $300. I think the cheapest come around $400 (if you're lucky).


    BTW I'm Victor Hasselblad

    I am JESUS! Christ, now I am going to get smited! ;-)

    If you sell your current lens, you can upgrade to the 16-85, which has better performance, and a more useful zoom range.
