    Questions about a wide angle lens

    I am hoping for a bit of advice about buying a wide angle lens. I currently have an 18-200mm lens which I am happy with but I am (hopefully) going to New Zealand later in the year and I was wondering if this lens would be enough for landscape shots or whether a wide angle would be a better option.
    I was looking at the AF-S-DX-10-24mm as I have a D90 (and no plans to go FF).
    I have done some research but I got a bit confused with all the distances etc and ended up not really knowing what I wanted (or would be best).
    Thanks for any help
    D610 and D90 with a 16-35mm f/4,a 70-200mm f/4 ,a 300mm f/4 +TC11 convertor, 18-200mmDX and 85mm micro Dx.

    Sally...CC always appreciated

    I use the Nikkor 10-24 and have been super impressed with it's performance and those extra millimetres can make a huge difference, especially on a DX.

    Why not look at doing panoramas rather than buying a new lens. Just a thought.
