    Got mine about 3 months back from AP $700.

    An excellent lens in terms of image quality and built but its quite heavy to handle.

    so u don't get any barrel distortion at 24-28mm?

    What about pin-cushion effect?

    For Tamron, there's a 28-200mm F/3.5-5.6 IF Macro XR lens. Fairly good lens. Sharp but not super sharp. Lightest lens(465g) in the world for this class. Its known to be the ultimate travel lens. $400 from Cathay. Good bang for the buck model. The 28-300 F/3.5-6.3 is $600+.

    No barrel distortion or pin-cushion effect at all at 24-28mm... perhaps its because I'm using D60 (1.6 FOV multiplier)?

    That's cheap! However, take note that the tokina cannot do macro. Minimum focusing distance is 80cm.

    Lillian, I think the Tamron lens has a shorter distance from the subject. Its very much lighter too.

    The 28-200mm XR series with macro. Not sure if the Sigma one is on par.

    These 2 lenses really good 4 a all-in-one combo.

    Cheers
