    Default sigma 28- 70 vs tokina atx pro II (28-70)

    Hey all, can anyone tell me how are the performance of these 2 lens compared to one another? In terms of optics, focusing, sharpness and color?

    Heard that the Tokina Atx pro II is soft for f2.8 but the problem disappears at higher f stops like f4.

    How abt the sigma 28- 70 ex df lens in comparison.

    From my research both lens are pretty prone to flare but tokina is worse. How abt distortion?

    thanks...

    I own the Sigma.

    Generally I kinda like the min dist to focus on the subject.
    Lesser dist as compared to Tokina.

    Also, the AF on Sigma is faster, but, Tokina is has a more quiet motor.

    Sigma goes to F32, Tokina F22

    Tokina is much heavier if weight matters to u.

    Tokina uses this clutch system to swap between AF & MF. My Sigma does not.

    if you need to view pics from sigma, go to my photosig pics. There is a number of it there.

    Sigma is lighter and it came with a perfect hood and lens pounch.

    Which ever one you buy, I dun think you will go wrong. Both are good performer.
