Sweet! Let me know how you like it. Did you get it new?

I got mine used from one of our local photography chains. Being able to go super wide is fun.

I got it at a local pawnshop for $70, its super clean which was surprising. 

I wanted a good Wide 18mm cause all I had was the 18/70 which is ok and the cheapo 18-55 kit lens that came with the D3200.  Im going to try it out this weekend when I go plane spotting down at MIA.

 

The guy maurice that is saving for that lens just bought a Tokina 11-16, Im really surprised at the sharpness.

Nice buy Michael, I love my Nikkor 12-24mm.

Tokina is not a bad lens, I have the 12-24 f4 dx and I'm okay with it. Ideally I'd like the Nikon though:happy:

The More I read up on it it seems to be an amazing budget lens that out preforms a lot of others. Even Nikkor Snobs love it ( http://www.kenrockwell.com/tokina/11-16mm.htm )

Dang, good deal. I should check out the pawn shops in my area and see if they have anything. lol

Prior to getting this 10-24, I read good things about the Tokina, but chose not to go with due to the lack of autofocus within the lens, which my D5200 needs.

Ahhh see I'm on a D7000 so that's not an issue. What is though, is that I get green hazing (like lens flare, but even with my hood in place) in the center of my blacks...

Kaplhenke coilovers are mindblowing to say the least

 

C30 needs floormats, tires, front and rear brakes, and a detail. Stock halogen headlights suck on these cars, getting a HID kit for it asap. 

While you're at it swap the stock halogen projectors for E46 ones. Direct fit. Nobody likes HIDs in halogen setups...

Go to theretrofitsource.com - pretty sure they have them on clearance for $80 a pair, and they have a legit D2S kit as well. Only thing stopping me from swapping my V50 setup is the painfully low Canadian dollar

oh man that's real cheap, I did a Morimoto Mini H1 setup on my old 95 850, the light output was incredible

Look into led. Much faster and cleaner look vs hid. I like them so much beer than hid. 

 

Btw trs is about 25 minutes from my house. I was going to go there sometime this week to check out what they got. 

Going to do a retrofit in my previa and my cousins 4 runner

honestly the issue is cost, LED kits are really expensive right now. 

 

that would be awesome to see TRS's showroom, let me know what you think!
