Nikon 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5

The Nikon 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5 ultrawide lens is a nice lens for those who want to do landscape photography. At 10mm at the widest, it is a DX lens which on the APS-C sensor comes out to about 15mm with the 1.5X crop factor. The 10-24mm is a well-constructed lens with a metal F-mount. Test shooting the lens in the London Drugs store, I noticed just how wide the lens is. This is a zoom lens with an aperture of f/3.5 at the 10mm range and a f/4.5 at 24mm.

The main competitors are the Canon 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5 USM for Canon users, the Sigma 10-20mm f/3.5 and an earlier version in f/4-5.6 available in both Nikon and Canon mounts. Sigma also has an 8-16mm f/4.5-5.6. Pentax also has a 12-24mm with an aperture of f/4 at all focal lengths. Olympus has it's 9-18mm f/4-5.6. Sony also has a 11-18mm f/4.5-5.6.

For those who want an ultrawide lens with a fast aperture of f/2.8, there is the Tokina 11-16mm. But those who have a DSLR without a integrated lens motor will be restricted to manual focus with this lens as the lens does not have a in-lens autofocus motor. Namely those with a D60, D40, D40x, D3000, D3100, D5100. D5000 bodies.
