    Tokina 11-16 vs Nikon 10-24

    I was wondering if anyone had any opinions on either the Tokina 11-16 f2.8 or the Nikon 10-24 f3.5-5.6. I was all ready pull the trigger on the Nikon lens, then I read where Ken Rockwell likes the Tokina better. I was just wondering if anyone on the forum could offer any other opinions. Thanks!
