if you could only have one wide angle

    I'm in the market for a wide angle lense but I have absolutely no where
    to start. I have a D70 (kit with lens) and as a boon picked up the
    Nikkor 60mm and 105mm micro lenses for some macro work.

    Any suggestions on a wide angle lense?

    thanks

    If I could only have one wide angle lens it would be the 17-35/2.8.

    The 12-24mm DX lens. It is on my camera most of the time.

    Tokina 12-24/4...I returned my Nikkor 12-24 for it. At half the price
    it is almost indistinguishable from the Nikkor...except on focusing
    speed. But the wide angles focus quickly anyway...

    I purchased the Nikkor 12-24 instead of the Tokina. The cost savings is
    significant with the Tokina but being a newbie I'm going to side with
    caution and roll with the Nikon product. I've never read anthing but
    positive reviews concnerning their lenses (inside and out).

    I think my next purchase ( a few months out) will be the 105mm DC.

    Thanks all!
