    at the moment i have a 18- 200 Sigma zoom lens for day to day use but i would like something a bit more wide angle, maybe not pure fish eye teratory but a bit more wide angle any way.

    not worried about zoom capabilities (sp)

    any suggestions?

    anything around £500 (english pounds) but anything concidered, just will need to save up for longer.

    I don't know if you can afford the Nikon 12-24, but if not i've heard the Tokina 12-24mm f/4 is superb.

    Another good choice is the Sigma 10-20 zoom. It is the one I would buy if I didn't already have the Nikkor 12-24.

    I've just got hold of a sigma 10-20 and it's a great lens. VERY wide and very sharp.
