Keen amateur photographer with a Nikon D5000 who is keen to invest in a good Ultra-Wide lens ahead of a photography holiday to Iceland. For similar prices, am torn between a Uses Nikon 12-24mm f4 G AF-S IF-ED DX Lens (£750) or a brand new AF-S Nikkor 10-24mm f3.5-4.5 G ED lens £650. Anyone offer any help (I think I'd prefer a Nikon lens)
Am also keen to try using filters for longer exposures for silky water effects / waterfall / sea pictures / sunrise / sunsets. Looking for a good "starter kit" or some basic essentials but so many types of filters, I'm not sure where to start ....

Hello Suzanne, and welcome to the friendly Camera Labs forum!
To enjoy your stay here please have a look at the house-rules!

For ultra-wide on a Nikon DX body I'd suggest the 10-24mm! I once had a Sigma 10-20mm and the difference between 10mm or 12mm on the short end can clearly be seen.
As to your filter-Q: someone else has to jump in, because I'm not a filter-guy...
