    I had the 10-24 (not the 10-20) with my D7100, and it was a great lens. I think the Tokina offerings were a little better though.

    Agree with RocketCowboy, for wide angle lenses Tokina is hard to beat for price vs. performance.

    I *love* my Sigma 24-105 F4, and that along with the Sigma 150-600 are my favourite lenses. I recently acquired a 105 f2.8 Macro too, which is great on the D7100 - But overall favourite has to be the 24-105 art.

I find myself using the 35mm when I'm indoors, shooting pictures of my kids, etc. I've been using my 18-200 when I'm travelling or moving around where I'd like to have some zoom capabilities. I've rarely found myself in a position where I've needed anything else. But I've often wondered what else is out there?? My main interests are landscape photography, architecture and taking pictures of my kids in action.


    • I've thought about the 10-24mm or the newer 10-20mm which seems to be a good value. Do the extra 8mm on the wide side make a big difference?
    • I've thought about a 50mm 1.8G - Would this add much?
    • What else is nice in DX format?


    Thanks!

    Welcome

    I shoot a D7100 and my glass is listed in my signature below. I've tried to buy mostly FX glass for future growth, I do have some DX glass due to my current needs however.

    Well I threw a few offers out on eBay and snagged a NIKKOR 12-24 in like new condition for $350. Seems to be a pretty good price. Thanks all for the advice. I'll post some pics when I get it. I think it will be a great addition to my 35mm 1.8 and my 18-200!

    If you fill out your profile and add the camera gear we can better answer any questions that you might have.
    You can do that at http://nikonites.com/profile.php?do=editprofile

    Under camera just put the model number like D7100; Once you put the first letter like D you will see a list of all the cameras in the database pop up. The more numbers you put in the smaller the list becomes. When you see your camera just click on it, Be sure to click on "Save Changes" in the lower right corner.

    And to add photos.

    Guidelines to adding a photo to your post.

    1. Resize photo to 1000px on the long side.
    2. Resolution set to 72ppi (Pixels Per Inch)

    These guidelines will be good for viewing on a computer but will not be good for printing. This will help safeguard your copyright.

    If you fancy pushing the boat out a bit, the Nikon 70-200 f2.8 VR1, a fantastic lens. Only available second hand now but essentially as good as the VRII on an aps-c frame!

    Re: DX Glass for use with D7100

    I like variety.

    On my D7100, with DX lenses specifically I love the 35mm 1.8 - can't beat it for indoor use.

    The shorter zoom that gets a fair amount of mileage on the D7100 is a 16-85mm Nikkor - not as fast as 35mm but with a flash does great indoor and makes for a fine walk about.

    To go wide I have a Tokina 11-20 2.8, works very well. Wish it went a little longer find myself at the 20mm end more often than the 11mm.
    I also have a Sigma 10mm fisheye in DX - when you want to go really really wide.

    If indoor speed is an issue a fast 50 or 85mm works well. I've shot both my FX 1.4 50mm (an artsy Sigma) or the FX 1.8 85mm G by Nikon.

    For longer lenses I have a 55-300 but don't use it.
    I've also relegated my 18-55mm to the glove box. Found it useful there a few times when I was out with just my long lens (200-500) and suddenly the urge to shoot wider overcame me.

    When going long I tend to use one of my FX lenses on the D7100
    If size matters then the 70-300 Tamron works well. This is my cycling combo, the 70-300 on the D7100.
    For fast and long cannot beat the 70-200 2.8 workhorse (I have the older VRI version - if it ain't broke don't fix it or replace it)

    But the one that gets the most use would be the 200-500mm or at least it used to.
    Now that I have a D500 the 200-500 spends most of it's time connected to the D500.

    And if my funky artsy side gets lose I pull out my case of Lensbaby gear and plunk it onto the D7100 when I want the DX crop benefit.

    I do not have one of those ultra zooms 18-XXX but have looked at them. Sigma has a 18-250 that is a macro and the price is tempting, but if money is no object the new 18-400 Tamron looks very interesting as an all in one with great reviews. If I was just starting out I'd look hard at that one if the 18-200mm is coming up short for you.
