    the only way to test is shoot at the shop and view it on your lappy at 100%.

    you can try at john316, tk photo, ms color, orient photo or alan photo. you won't find tamron and sigma at cathay because they are agent for tokina.

    for those thinking of 1 to 1 exchange with the shop, my suggestion is to go to the more reputable shops like CP, MS, John 3:16. if u buy from those ah beng shops, good luck.
    photography makes one sees things from all angles.
