    Default Tokina 10-17mm review

    Has anyone used the new Tokina AF 10-17mm lens? Been searching for reviews but have not been successful. Possibly because it is very new. Would appreciate any input regarding this and any comparison with other lens of the same range.

    I am in Taipei now and it is going for NT$16,800 or about S$800. I am sure it is going to cost a lot more in Singapore because the Tokina 12-24 costs only N$14,500 (S$690) here compared to the retail price of well over S$800 for it in Singapore.

    Oh... didnt know they have this lens out. Wide angle.....

    Can check with CP if they have it in store. Then bring your camera down and test it.

    Anyone wanna volunteer?

    Wonder what price it will be when launch in Singapore
    Would certainly be interesting to compare it with the Sigma 8mm f/3.5 EXDG fisheye if the price is about the same.
    Wonder what differences on the pic in terms of both presentation and pic quality would be like on a 1.6/1.5x LF DSLR for the same scene taken on the Tokina 10-17mm and that of the Sigma 8mm EXDG, knowing that the Sigma being a Full fisheye on FF DSLR.

    Should be priced at around $800 + a little
    For Pentax users it is already in. Price below $800

    Hummm this is about the same range as the Tokina 12-24...

    Saw the sample pics from Ortega's link. This lens seem to have too much distortion even at 17mm. At first I thought that I will buy this instead of the 12-24. Now not sure. Still reserving judgement till I try it out myself...
