Before I make a lens purchase, I'd love a few opinions.
I'm currently using a Nikon D40 with and 18-200 Tamron lens. I'd like to do less stitching, so I'm considering a $499 Tamron SP AF 10-24mm F/3.5-4.5 DI II LD Aspherical (IF) for Nikon Built-in-Motor (BIM).
However, I've read that the photo quality may not be the best, so I'm also looking at a used NIKON/TAMRON AF 17-50MM F2.8.
I'm also using an SB 600 flash, so maybe I don't need F2.8 vs. F3.5. But then again, maybe the image quality would be better through the 17-50MM F2.8 even at F3.5 or more.
