Just picked up my first DSLR, a Nikon D5100 with the standard 18-55 VR zoom lens. Also got the 55-300 VR zoom lens as well. I think it's a f3.5-5.6?

I think the only other lens I'm really going to need/want very much is a super-wide zoom, something like photolitherland's 11-16 Tokina or perhaps the slightly cheaper 10-20 Sigma or Tamron model. I know the Tokina is an f2.8 and I think the other two are in the f3.5-4.5 range, but I'm not sure if, on a super wide angle, it will make a whole lot of difference. Your thoughts, folks?

Overall, I think I picked up some nice gear, especially for my level (and probably a few levels above) of knowledge. No reason to go super high-end without the knowledge to know how to properly use it!
