So leaving for a trip and while weight is always an issue wondering what those of you that have played with combination of the Tokina 10-17 with a teleconverter think about it for fish portraits and the like vs. the Sigma 17-70??? (I have a Nikon D200) I like the Sigma but willing to take a chance on the Tokina combo in hopes of getting something a little different. Anybody with examples of there attempts?
I just posted a couple of pictures that may interest you on the DIY forum, under cfwa mini dome and I have many more examples to explore the possibilities.

I am new on the Forum and now contemplating between the tokina 10-17mm and the Tamron SP AF 10-24mm F3.5-4.5 Di II LD Aspherical
I hear good stories about the 10-17 underwater and that it is crap above the waterline. It is also very fisheye on land.
Now the tamron 10-24 keeps all the lines straight and has had a good review on http://www.dpreview....24_3p5-5p6_n15/
but that means nothing underwater.
Does anyone have experiece with the Tamron SP AF 10-24mm???
looking forward to your thoughts
