I'll be making the purchase of a new D90 within the next two weeks. I settled on that camera because the sensor is essentially the same as the D300, which means similar high-iso performance. I can live with the 11point AF instead of the 51 on the D300, and the slower shutter speed. I also prefer the ergonomics of the camera as opposed to the 40d and 50d from Canon. Now my problem is finding lens to go with the new purchase. I'm about 70% sure I'd be going for the Nikon 18-200mm as a walkaround lens, unless someone here dissuades me from doing so. I'm also considering getting a ultra-wide angle with that for landscape shots - most likely the Tokina 11-16mmf/2.8 AT-X. I'm mainly wondering what you guys think of this combo, or if you have any suggestions if you were in a similar situation. Thanks! Edit: What I meant to say was that would the 11-16mm be necessary for the $600 I'd have to spend, and would that 2mm between 16 and 18 truly make a difference? It would be great if someone could dig up a comparison picture between pictures taken by a 11mm, 16mm, 18mm, 35mm, 55mm, etc etc. That would be fantastic!
