    Default 12-24mm, Nikon or ??

    I,m about to pick up a Nikon 12mm-24mm (18-36)
    i own a 24-120mm already which will give me a nice range with just these two lens.
    from 18 to 180. and with my 80-200 2.8 i'll be set for most (but not all) shooting.
    As you know the 12-24 Nikon is a bit expensive and most likly worth it, But how would you guys rate
    the 12-24 Sigma or Tokina against the Nikon? I read the Tokina was pretty sharp.
    Thanks!

    Apparently Ken Rockwell doesn't seem to agree with your choice for the Sigma 12-24mm
