    Question To Grey Or Not?

    Hi Bros/Sis, thinking of getting the Tokina 12-24 f/4 ... was told a grey set going for $710.00. Is lens easily damaged in anyway with normal usage? So, help me ... to grey or not?

    Thanks ya.

    Unlikely, especially for this Tokina! Built like a tank.

    More difficult to answer, as a brand new with 3-years warranty can be had for only $820.

    Hi Bro, I'm using Nikon so Canon Lens are out. I've done up some reading and weigh many users of various brands WA lens and decided to plomp my $$ on the Tokina ... anyway, my questions is 'To Grey Or Not?' is to find out whether it 'safe' or worthwhile saving the $100 or so dollars.

    Bro,

    if it's me, that extra $110 can buy 3 yrs of peace, why not? If it is 1 yr, then maybe not, as a Human Being's accident insurance for 1 yr is also around there, no point paying $100+ to buy "insurance" for a lens. But 3 yrs, WHY NOT??

    Sometimes when your "luck" is near, you never know... Others use 3 yrs no problems, maybe you use 3 months only, disaster...

    The DIFFERENCE is not in the "Cue", it is in the SKILLS...
