So as some of you may know, I stopped by Samy's Camera this weekend to pick up a 50mm 1.8. I am also in the market for a UWA and was pretty much set on the Canon 10-22 f3.5. I asked to take a look at it and the sales guy brought out both the Canon and Tokina 11-16 2.8! I took the Tokina out and pretty much fell in love with the way it looks (I know I know, looks don't matter ). I've read the www.juzaphoto.com review, but would still like TPF's feedback. However it did get me thinking, I really wanted a 2.8 lens. But I have read (on here) that the corners seem to be soft and at 2.8, its not as sharp (this one is arguable, b/c some agree and some totally disagree). I would be shooting cars (up close for that wide look) landscapes. I have been told that shooting landscapes, I wouldn't be under f/4 anyway so getting a 2.8 would be useless. But I'm thinking it'll come in handy, for the lowlight, indoors, pictures. What do you think? Glass. I've ready (if only I can find that link!) that the Canon 10-22 actually uses an L series glass but they don't advertise it for whatever reason. Hows the glass on the Tokina. Price. Samy's camera had the lens for $599 (they didn't mention it was a sale or anything) so I figured I'd be able to get it even cheaper online, but amazon has it for 699! Why? Wideness. There is the obvious that there is a -1 at the bottom end and -6 at the zoom end. Should I be concern? If you own it, do you feel sometimes you absolutely need it? If you got it, I'd love to hear about it!
