    Default Wide Angle Lens

    I have a standard 18-55mm and a tele-zoom lens (cant rember the size) but i really want some thing to take landscapes. Thing is there are so many types so was wondering if one of you Pros could help.

    Thing is Im looking at Jessops website and confused on the descriptions.
    One in particular the focal length is 24mm yet another says 10-24mm.. so which is the better ?

    In a nutshell can someone advise what kind of wide angel lens I could go for ?
    Sadly Im a tight arse or rather to be honest not flushed so around the 200-250 mark would be ideal That said Im waiting for someone to say dont bother on that price

    hi you should beable to get some results from your kit lens. but if you want to go wider the look at the sigma 10-20 but it is over your budget. are you having problems with your kit lens

    i wouldnt say its a problem. Its just pics look different on a 18-55mm as there is no wider view so it just looks like the pic has been taken with just a basic compact camera...or am I just being over critical ?

    I have uploaded some onto my gallery if you have a peek
