    Hi everyone, I am on a quest to buy a wide angle zoom for my D90 and have narrowed my search to either a Tokina 12-24 f4 MK1 or a Sigma 10-20 F4-5.6. I have found that both these lenses can be bought for quite a bit less than the usual retailers at Microglobe (Tokina 12-24 f4 MK1 359) and Panamoz (Sigma 10-20 F4-5.6 313) and was wondering is any of you have had any shopping experience with these companies.

    I have bought a number of Canon items at Microglobe (near London's Tottenham Court Road) without any problems

    Bought a Nissin flash from Microglobe a few years ago. Sent me the wrong one to start but sorted out very quickly by way of return post so no problem for me.

    Have used Microglobe without any problems. Haven't heard of Panamoz.

    Thanks everyone for all the replies, it is encouraging to read positive words. I have to say I am swayed toward the Tokina and have placed my order with Microglobe. Good luck to you all and thanks again.

    I used a Tokina 12-24 on my old Canon 450D, and it gave superb results. A little bit of PP and sharpness levels can be impressive. I have to be honest, I bought mine from Simplyelectroncs, which is a Hong Kong based company because they were so much cheaper. I got my Nikon 16-85 DX lens from Microglobe and had no problems, they even through in a filter.

    Make sure you are getting the Mk 2 version as its much improved.

    @kodachrome, thanks for your reply. In what way do you reckon the Mk 2 version has improved over the Mk 1, as I was attracted to the Mk 1 as it was cheaper and I do not need the motor in the lens with my D90.

    It is worth checking the warranty - at least some items seem Grey Import.
    They are not cheap on Nikon brand items.
