    Which reviews have you read so far? Which specific question is not clear? "Better" is too generic since different people have different needs and therefore the term "better" will refer to different features / functions / specs.

    Cos its the most expensive and not everyone needs f/2.8

    no sigma 10-20?

    Sigma I think I saw some review that it isn't that good. But in terms of captured picture quality, which one is better? I think the zoom and angle capture is somewhat similar between the 2 right? Thanks!

    Again, what reviews have you read so far? Have you read the photozone.de reviews?

    Tokina build quality is solid! Not too sure about Tamron.

    10-20 is not the same as 11-18 or 12-24 .. what do you think these numbers stand for?

    used both and to me, the Tokina one is a little better. But now Tamron's 11-18 has been replaced by the new 10-24 which is better. Tried it before too.
