Dude! Get a watch! 0

I've got several lenses on my "wishlist" at the moment and I'm currently selling some watches, so I'm thinking of useful purposes for the money Laughing
1. Used Nikon 20 mm f/2.8D: my zoom lense goes down to 24 mm and esp. in the city I could use a tad more wide angle. Stopped down this lense is supposed to be very sharp.
2. Used or new Rokinon 14 mm lense: even more wide angle, but manual focus only which is a hassle: I could basically use it for cityscapes only. That being said: the picture quality of my Rokinon fish eye is excellent.
3. Sigma 105 mm macro lense. Until recently I really missed have a marco lense, at 105 mm it would make a nice portrait lense too (currently I usually use my 50 mm for that). However, the Olympus TG-4 I recently has a pretty good macro function. Although the level of detail is considerably less than my Nikon.
4. Save my pennies and sell some more stuff to get a Rokinon tilt/shift lense. I do a lot of cityscape, so that should come in real handy...
5. Get a watch instead Laughing

Macro or maybe another option? Dre 1198 April 20, 2016 05:13AM
The 16-35 mm gets excellent reviews, but the price tag Eek! (1300€) (n/t) Micha 1189 April 20, 2016 09:01AM
How about the Tokina 16-28 f/2.8 then? Dre 1161 April 21, 2016 05:15AM
Hmm, interesting alternative indeed (680 € here in Germany)... Micha 1200 April 21, 2016 10:32AM
Crap - I just noticed that the front lense is curved - so no filters Crying (n/t) Micha 1195 April 21, 2016 10:34AM
The cheaper Tokina 17-35 f/4 does have filter threads (n/t) Dre 1203 April 21, 2016 10:54AM
hmm.... Envy (n/t) Micha 1240 April 21, 2016 12:26PM
The 17-35 gets rather poor test results (unsharp near the edges even at f/13) - the 16-28 seems to do considerably better Confused (n/t) Micha 1164 April 25, 2016 10:42AM
MIcha, are shooting with a crop body? I can't remember. If so the Tokina 11-16 2.8 is very good. (n/t) Cmoy 1188 April 25, 2016 05:43AM
Nope, FF Cool (n/t) Micha 1157 April 25, 2016 10:40AM
