Hi all

I have a nikon d5300 with a 18-140mm lens and have a 85mm lens to.

Been looking for a wide angel lens wondered if anyone uses the
8-16mm?? if so what you think of it? or could anyone recommend a wide angel lens to get. mainly want to use it for. city scapes, and in side abandoned buildings and in tight places.

Thanks in advance

My choice would be one of these: Tokina 11-16mm / 11-20mm, Sigma 10-20, or Nikon 12-24mm.

Had the Sigma, was a pretty solid lens to be fair. Now I have a Tamron 10-24mm and its not as good, fortunately I only got it to use on my D7200 when I don't want to drag the full frame gear out :D
