    Hello everyone

    I am looking at purchasing a wide angle lens for my D90 for an upcoming trip to Eurpoe.
    I'm looking at Tamron 10-24 or Nikon 10-24 or Nikon 12-24.

    The heard the Nikon 12-24 was made in Japan and is better quality than the 10-24 being made in China.

    Also there is the cost difference. The Tamron is roughly $500 vs Nikon $800

    Any opinion would be greatly appreciated

    Thank you

    AF-S 16-85 f/3.5-5.6 VR would actually be my choice for this.

    Its optically pretty okay and with 24-130mm equivalent it should be flexible enough for travel.

    Most popular real wide angle lens for Nikon DX is AFAIK Tokina 11-16mm f2.8 or the new Tokina 11-20mm f2.8.

    I'm not invested in DX anymore, though.
