    how much you paid for it?
    Haha $690 for a local set. Do you know Tokina stopped production for this lens? I'm lucky to find one of the last few local sets left.

    Tokina is well known for its build quality...I'm now leaning towards the Tokina 16-50 for a standard zoom. Was initially uninterested due to the price compared to the alternatives, and the underwhelming results from reviews. But after researching a bit more and seeing some photos on flickr, I'm convinced that they improved on the lens somehow over time, as the sharpness wide open doesn't seem to be as low as some (in fact most - not that there are many reviews on this lens) reviews suggest.

    But then again, it's pointless to poison myself lol

    Haha totally love Tokina's build quality, really top notch If you don't mine paying more for the Sigma version, I'm actually quite impressed with Samtac's copy.

    I hardly find my plans nefarious at all. Instead, I get very discouraged from the lack of talent from this group. and here I was looking for a sidekick of sorts. Looks like there's no one I can really trust around here.. le sigh.

    I called MS Color and Marina Cathay, they both say impossible to have stock coming in because discontinued already and haha TCW have stock now. They quote me $680 for grey, I was shocked.

    zzz my gfx card died on me yesterday, now on integrated graphics (hey at least it isn't the Intel crap one), but all my games are running slowly

    Haven't tried anything in Lightroom yet though, not sure if the integrated gfx can handle it.
