    Hi,

    thanks all for the review.

    I actually have another lens here. Just scatter ard google and saw this:-

    Tokina AF-X Pro 16-50mm f/2.8

    Seems it pairs good with my camera based on focal length (24mm at open end on 35mm equiv.)

    I wonder is there any with motor version. Can't seem to find on google..

    Logically the best resource would be the Tokina website itself...

    Cannot find this lens in Tokina's website, not even sure if that lens was still in production or not. But found another one that had build in motor from their website:

    1) AT-X 16-28 F2.8 PRO FX

    This lens is impressive,

    I agree with you. I bought an AT-X116 two days ago and it beats my Sigma 10-20mm in almost every aspect. Distortion is much easier to correct as well. It's a big plus for me since I'm obsessed with straight lines. A friend warned me that at f2.8, the Tokina will be very soft that it'll render unusable--and boy, was he so wrong.

    One thing though is that I thought the 1mm difference at the wide end wouldn't be very distinct. I did a comparison of both lenses last night and the difference is so big that it's making me think which one to dispose lol.

    Yes, the 1 mm makes a huge difference, which is a pity. Anyways not that it matters to me, I don't think make this in Pentax mount.

    I can't count the times when the 10mm end is still not wide enough for a scene. Most of the time I deliberately frame shots with space allowance to give room for keystone correction. Now, honestly speaking, I'm a little bit lost. Well, just a little bit.

    I'll give the Toki a good whirl this week and see if I can live with it. For now: Toki - 70 points; Sigma - 30 points.

    Thanks for this review.

    I'm actually sided to Sigma 10-20mm. One factor could be due to price even for second hand..

    For what it's worth, you can't go wrong with any of these lenses. I've been a devout Sigma 10-20 fan for 4 years. Minus the moustache distortion, it's an angel to work with.

    Thanks! That's what I wanna know!

    Anyway, I'm going to pair this with Tamron 28-75/2.8 and Nikon 70-300.

    I saw mixed review (skewed to bad mostly) on 28-75/2.8 which makes me wonder did I make a wrong choice? So far the that is the only lens I can afford (after trading with my kit lens).

    Thanks for recommendation. Indeed I thought of 12-24mm initially. But anyway I guess I'll go for 10-20mm due to the extra 2mm wideness. SinceI jus bought my 28-75, I guess I'll grab a 2nd hand very wide lens
