Dear friends, please recommend good lens under 500$ for landscape (for d7000). Thank you. I am shooting for used one.

The Tokina mentioned, and also the Sigma 10-20 f/3.5, are both excellent, and possibly had for $500 used. The Sigma 10-20 f/4-5.6 is a little softer and a little more distorted, but quite affordable, even new.

The 18-105 kit lens that comes with the D7000? ...just an idea.

I've tried the Sigma 10-20mm and own a Tamron 10-24mm and I think the Tamron is best when it comes to landscape. Used versions sell for 325-400 on eBay which is a very good price in my opinion for the quality it gives in return.

I've heard good things about the Tokina 11-16mm but haven't tried it yet. It costs $600+ though.

I've done some light research on the various wide zooms for another poster recently and if I were on a crop body, I'd get the Tamron 10-24.
