In Topic: Nikon D3100 and Tokina AT-X Pro 12-24mm f/4 DXII

I have yongnuo, dont have the 603 transmiter but that is cheap to get so i will get it. And get the lense for now. After one or two jobs, i will get some other equipment and hold off on the body for now. I wanted body that does bracketing in it so i don't have to fiddle with it manually. I used to teach photoshop and did photo editing long time ago and am quite familiar with it even though it is old (what i know) i want to learn to get good results in camera so i don't have to in post production. Thank you for all your advice, it is very much appreciated!

For now, i will have to get by with what i have plus the lense and external flash. In time, i will get additional equipment.

I need if for interior pictures of properties often small rooms to capture as much of the room as possible without the distortion or with minimal distortion. i was mostly doing drone videos but started to get requests to take pictures of properties and found my basic lenses limiting.


I was looking at the D7500 body, refurb can be $600 from B&H. need to learn bit more about it but i think it would be huge improvement from the D3100

what about then staying with the Nikon and go with

Nikon AF-P DX NIKKOR 10-20mm f/4.5-5.6G VR Lens

Is the Tokina 11-20 still the better choice? i am at the very begining of my photo journey so at the moment for my needs, i was exporting jpgs into photoshop (very old version i must say too)


Nevermind :-) the Nikon 10-20mm is not compatible with my camera body. I seems the Tokina AT-X Pro 12-24mm f/4 DXII will have to do unless you have any other suggestions in about $300 range for similar lens. Also, as i progress here, what Nikon body should I start saving for (probably used with budget of $600-$700)

Thank you Merco_61. I really appreciate your time and knowledge. in addition to the first lens i found this one and I think i will go with this one since it has f/2.8 which would let more light in in interior photography... any opinion on this one?
