If it were me, I would stick with the 30mm since you already have the range covered with the Tamaron.

Take this with a huge grain of salt ... like if a deranged and confused Mary Poppins grabbed the wrong jar while trying to make the medicine go down...

I'm making a transition from longtime film camera guy to DSLR. Admitedly I used my old film camera for a long time then put it on a shelf for a long time. Thank gods that format is dying right?

Anyway... I try to stay as minimalist as I can but I found this old F-mount 30mm 1.4 tucked away and I started using it on my new body (new to me).

I lose just about every advanced feature Nikon saw fit to invent for me when I put that lens on but it's still coming with me.

note: Thanks to PhotoChick's favorite book recommendation I'm not worried at all about going manual. I won't spoil it for you, I'm just surprised I haven't seen it in this thread yet.

Just wanted to thank everyone for your help that commented and left their opinion on the 2 lenses I was looking at.

For those that were interested/curious I ended up going with the 18-35!

I would really like to hear some real world reviews about this lens. It looks to be very useful, especially for WDW.

I have a question. I heard a mention of this on a full frame camera. I thought that couldn't be done cause the sensor would get hit like other lens that are made only for crop bodies. Someone earlier said there would just be vignetting to start at 28 mm?

It depends on how the lens is made and the camera brand if the mirror will hit the lens or not on a full frame. But at the least you'll have vignetting on full frame.
