    Need help deciding between the two DX nikon wide angles.

    This one, AF-S DX NIKKOR 10-24MM F/3.5-4.5G ED,

    or this one? AF-S DX ZOOM NIKKOR 12-24MM F4G

    I'll be shooting mostly landscapes and indoors(real estate). I can't decide, they seem to be so close. Am I missing anything?

    Yes, both are a bit slow for indoor work and both will have to much distortion for high quality indoor real estate work.

    Both will be fine for landscape and of the two I would recommend the constant aperture f/4 version.

    I would suggest you take a hard look at the AF Nikkor 14 mm f/2.8 ED prime. It has a 114 degree FOV compared to the 109 degree FOV for the 10-24 you're looking at, plus the f/2.8 and it's designed specifically for interior work.

    The FoV only applies for 35mm for the 14, and DX for the 10. Look for the tokina 11-16, for DX, the 14-24 for FX, and DXO optics software no mater what

    It's 600 dollars over my budget, lol. Since I have a crop sensor, wouldn't it be like having a 22mm? If it's that much better of a lens, I might think about it. I'll mostly be doing landscape with it, so the speed wasn't going to be an issue. And I'd have it on a tripod for real estate stuff anyways.

    Is the tokina better than the nikon lens? or is it just for the price?

    i had the 12-24 and i loved it, i didnt even know nikon came out with a 10-24. i think the 10-24 in made in china, and the 12-24 japan. you can also get the tokina 12-24 which apparently is just as good as the nikon, you can find a used one for 300 bucks.

    seeing reviews it says the 10-24 has a cheaper build than the 12-24 which isnt a surprise, it also doesnt have a constant aperture. i think the 12-24 is the way to go whether it be tokina or nikon.

    I wonder why the 10-24 is more expensive? Not by much, but still. Still not sure. So hard of a decision to make. Kinda leaning towards the 12 to 24 right now.
