Nikon - Ultra-Wide FX/Film Zoom

Nikon Camera and accessories forum from Photo.net - photo.net
I'm a wide angle junkie, but the widest full frame lens I have is an 18mm 3.5 AI-s. Wide angles always leave you wanting more, so I'm looking at the options I have for use on a D800 and various film cameras.

I have the DX 12-24mm f/4 and I've actually used it some in the 16-24mm range(it won't vignette as long as there's not a filter installed) although the edge performance and distortion are both bad. It works, but it seems to be a less than ideal solution.

As much as I'd love the 14-24mm 2.8, there's not a chance of it being in the budget.

So, with that in mind, can anyone suggest a sub-$1K wide angle zoom? I'd like something that goes down to the 14-15mm range. 3rd party lenses generally aren't even on my radar, but I'm open to considering one for this since I'm not sure a Nikkor exists in my price range.

Also, one other potential lens on my radar is the 15mm AI or AI-s. I don't mind manual focus as a general rule, and especially not on the D800 since I get metering and aperture priority. Also, DOF is generally so deep on WA lenses that there's not a lot of focusing required on them anyway.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
