    So after upgrading to a full frame Nikon D700 what are the best options for a decently priced wide angle lens?
    I'd love to hear from those that have the D700 and what kind of wide angle lens they use.
    I've got a budget of about 500 quid to play with.

    Cheers.

    How wide are we talking here? You could get a Tamron/Sigma 24-70 2.8 around £500, standard everyday do-it-all lens.

    For ultra-wide, check out Samyang lenses. Their 14mm 2.8 is INSANELY sharp, ultra wide and only costs £300. Manual focus, but at 14mm focusing is hardly even necessary :D

    The new Nikon 18-35mm f/3.5-4.5G is supposed to be a very good lens, you can get them new for about £500. There aren't many available used, despite the lens model being 3 years old, which I guess says something about them. I was going to buy one myself, but in the end paid a little more and got a used 16-35mm f/4 instead. I figured £50 more was worth it for 2mm wider, VR and weather sealing.

    (I have a D600 btw)

    You might get a 2nd hand NIKON 16-35 mm for a bit more if you're lucky, I like it on my D810, cheaper alternative in Tokina 16-28 which worked well on a D600 I had.
