    Doubt between tokina 12-24mm f4 and 11-20mm f2.8

    I'm in doubt about these 2 great lenses. I mean there is no doubt about which lens is better but price difference between each other is more than significant, more than 200. My main goals for shooting with it would be landscapes and sunsets and I wonder how tokina f4 is going to satisfy the needs and desires. Is it going to perform much worse or not in comparison with f2. 8 for landscaping photography? Moreover, I found out that Tokina 11-16mm looks great too which price is almost the same like 11-22mm...

    I used to have a Tokina 11-16 mm f/2.8 when I shot with a D7100. It is a great lens, however I don't remember ever needing to use it wide open shooting landscapes and sunsets.
    Now I shoot wide angle with a Nikkor 20 mm f/2.8 on an FX body, and still not needing anything larger then an f/5.6 for landscapes and sunsets.

    I would still recommend the f/2.8 however. You may not need it, but how about down the road? You might want to shoot something other then landscapes and sunsets that might require a larger then f/4 aperture. I say, that if you can afford it, go for the f/2.8 lens now so you won't have second thoughts about it later.

    If budget is tight, the F/4 will do very nicely as well.

    Agree completely sir. Well for now I will spare the horses and wait a little bit more and hopefully get 2.8 in a couple of months 👍

    I found a deal for 12-20 f4 in great condition for 270 euros. The guy just accepted exchange for my kit lens which lowered the price slightly. What do you think?
