I will be traveling to Norway to hopefully see the Northern Lights in November. I am thinking of buying the Nikon D5100 and need advice on lenses. I need a wide angle lens with a large aperture f2.8 or wider.

AF-S DX NIKKOR 35mm f/1.8G: Not a wide angle lens, but for the price ($200) you really cannot beat it for speed (f1.8), weight, and sharpness. I have much more expensive lenses but the 35mm lives on my camera body at least 50% of the time.

I would recommend the Nikon AF-S Nikkor 16-35mm f/4G ED VR is quite expensive $ 1200 + but is best for landscapes.

I agree with Aaron on the Nikkor 35mm f/1.8 lens. Beautiful results at the cheapest cost you could possibly ask for. I have the D5100 body as well, and after I got the 35mm lens, it didn't leave my camera for months!
