    • Nikon D5500 best budget landscape and cityscape lens?

      Hello, i am new here at forum and in site. I have Nikon D5500 DX sensor body and Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G witch are not so bad but i need something better, a way much sharper and contrasty with less chromatic aberations, distortion, flares and ghosts in shots. I am searching for budget landscape and cityscape lenses for around 700$. I need and advice witch are good for my purposes. I read a lot, almost everywhere and i meet different opinions and i am lil bit confused. I've stopped to this lenses:

      1. Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5G ED - sharpness: 9 P-Mpix, aberations: 13 µm

      2. Tokina AT-X PRO SD 11-16 F2.8 IF DX II - sharpness: 11 P-Mpix, aberations: 25 µm

      3. Tamron SP 10-24MM F/3.5-4.5 Di II LD Aspherical IF - sharpness: 7 P-Mpix, aberations: 15 µm

      4. Sigma 10-20mm F3.5 EX DC HSM - sharpness: 11 P-Mpix, aberations: 12 µm

      Help me out to find better one then those if its possible. Thanks!
