The pros and cons are numerous for both lenses... The suggestions to rent them and see which you like are spot on, but in all honesty you can't go wrong with the original 12-24 f/4 AT-X Pro. The AT-X Pro II changed the coatings to reduce flare (I haven't had much of an issue with flare on the original) and also added a built in AF motor so it would work on Nikon's cheap bodies, but I've heard it's noisier and slower than the screw drive on the original. The 12-28 obviously adds the extra 4 mm of reach, and is supposedly a skosh sharper... It's also $200 more than a used copy of the original. These lenses are built like tanks, and the original has fewer parts to break seeing as it doesn't have the motor. The 11-16 is a completely different animal. From what I've heard it's noticeably sharper than the 12-24/28 and of course has the extra stop of light gathering, which of course means it's significantly more expensive.

really thinking of selling my 50 1.4 for a sigma 30mm 1.4 art.

its expensive ( for me ) but I could sell my 50 for at least $50 more than I paid for it, and sell my 50 1.8 as well, and that would put me most of the way there. I just love wide wide wide, and want a fast wide lens. Typically, most of my shots are between 17-35mm range on my 17-40. I would get a 10-20 but the price is high and I don't think I would use it THAT much to justify the price.

30 mm isn't that wide on crop... Roughly the same FOV as 50 mm on full frame or film.

Just watched this guys video, from what I can see the 'Tamron 70-200 f/2.8' outperforms the 'Canon 70-200 f/2.8' in image quality?

yeah, my problem with the 50 is I feel its too tight. epsc in my tiny little apartment, I like to tun it into a mini studio, and quite often the camera is backed up against the wall or I just use my 17-40, but its f4 and limits me on some of the more arty shots I try to take.

That's a good point actually, I'd like another film camera like my old FED 4, so I could kill two birds with one stone here thumb.gif
