I'm after a wide angle lens, I have wanted to get a 12-24 tokina for a few years now.
I have about under £400 budget I have a Nikon d90. Is the 12-24mm Tokina still a good choice or can anyone recommend anything else?

I went for the Sigma 12-24 for a D80 because of the full-frame coverage to save a (currently firmly hypothetical!) later upgrade. Cost me £300 on eBay.

Brazilliance also has an 11-16 f/2.8 Tokina which seems good.

I have the Tokina 12-24mm and would definitely recommend it. The older version without the focus motor ought to be reasonably priced now. The AF is plenty fast enough on a D300.

Used lenses on eBay usually are pretty good value, and as long as you understand what you're bidding on shouldn't be any problem. Certainly I've been fine so far.

Another option occurred - Nikon used to have a 12-24 in their range but have since replaced it. If you can track down one of the old copies that should be pretty good value and it had a good reputation from what I remember.

I liked my Tokina 12-24 when I had one. Enough to get one again if I ever end up with an APS-C DSLR again.

I'n the end I've gone for 10-20mm sigma. Hope I've made a good choice.
