I haven't been doing landscapes for several years now, but I'm wanting to get back into it a bit. Given that I'm not a "serious" landscaper, I'm not really wanting to dump a lot of money into it, at least until I have time to figure out if I want to become serious.
I have decent landscape lenses for DX, but my FX lenses are rather sparse beyond the 24-70, an old Sigma 12-24, 15mm fish, 20 f/1.8, and 17mm Tokina.
The 14-24 doesn't seem like a lens for my bag, but the 16-35 and 17-35 Nikons aren't exactly cheap either. I'm leaning toward the 16-35, but I'm wondering if I should just dust off the old Sigma 12-24 and see how horrible it looks on the d800. The new Sigma 12-24 is supposed to be much improved over the old version and is only $950 new. So, I'd like to know if anyone has compared the new Sigma 12-24 to the Nikon 16-35 and how they stack up.
I hope that Jack doesn't mind a little diversion off the main question. But, if you think this isn't appropriate, Jack, just let me know and I'll remove it.
