    Re: DX ultra wide angle lens

    landscapes lol, just kidding. I just want to expand my resume with some more variety just like I'm try to shoot macro. I'll probably get the tokina 11-16mm later on. I can experiment with my 17-50 tamron and the 18-55mm nikon kit lens which I like very much. It's pretty sharp for a kit lens. I have the 35mm 1.8 nikon but it's too narrow. Although I live in the city there are things to shoot if you look around.

    Re: DX ultra wide angle lens

    You can always do a panorama until you can get a wider lens. I often find myself using this technique when all I have with me is the 70-300. I'll put the camera vertical and take several shots, overlapping each by a third and keeping it as level as possible and then combining in lightroom. Some people take a picture of their hand to indicate start and end of pano, but I typically shoot horizontically so the vertical shots are my panos

    Re: DX ultra wide angle lens

    thx could go that way for a bit. Works in a pinch. But doing a pano and editing it seems to me like a pain in the .............. over the long haul.. I was thinking of that myself though. It's not really work but don't to carry a tripod or a mono with me all the time? last but not least. I can back up 50 feet or so, but that doesn't work all the time. : )

    Re: DX ultra wide angle lens

    I've never done a pano with a tripod. Hand held only. My monthly challenge shot #1 is handheld pano using a 24mm lens.

    Re: DX ultra wide angle lens

    If I can't do a Macro without a tripod, how can you do a pano without one. esp a stitch ? I meant real macro = real pano. Different scale . I think I will wait for more opinions to weigh in. And consider this closed on Sunday. Thanks for everyone's input

    Re: DX ultra wide angle lens

    I feel the difficulty in choosing an ultra-wide lens in DX. It was something I used to research regularly and just could not convince myself to buy. The widest I could always shoot at was 18mm. I still have a Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 Art (and I recommend that lens unconditionally for DX shooters). But it can hardly be called ultra-wide. 18mm is 27mm FX equivalent. You would need to look at 10mm to get something close to the 14mm FX experience. My eventual solution was just to finally buy a FX DSLR and increase my wide angle options dramatically. I have a Sigma 20mm f/1.4 now as my widest and will eventually pick up a 14mm, possible manual-focus Samyang.

    Easier than you think to do handheld panos. There is dedicated software out there for the job.

    Autostitch is stupid-easy to use, but you are limited to jpg. I've used it for years.

    Re: DX ultra wide angle lens

    lucien, since you are interested in eventually getting an ultra-wide angle lens for landscape, you might want to look at how to compose images with that lens. Since an ultra-wide can exaggerate the size of subjects along the edges (especially anything close to the lens), having some type of foreground element is what brings interest to its images. Here are a couple of articles that might allow you to see how distortion along the frame's edges can positively impact images.
