Thinking of getting a wide angle lens as i will be going to oversea with my wife. But i still think whether to get the tokina 11-16mm f2.8 or any other good recommendation compare to this tokina ? My budget is around $800-$900.

The cheapest i saw was the artworkfoto which selling $890. Duno any other shop selling cheaper ? And talking about artworkfoto, they got the booth on the coming suntec IT show. Izzit a good buy from IT show?

Are you aware that the lens Artworkfoto selling is a grey set? If you don't mind grey sets check out here, its $873 at this moment but price fluctuates according to exchange rates.

there's an additional 2% off if you pay cash.

Just my view, with less than $100, I get a new local warranty set and with a piece of mind.

Its only $50 difference, so i would rather get a local set but what i would really do if i were to buy the lens is to get a 2nd hand which still have warranty left from the BnS.

if you're shooting lots of scenery and maybe have no need for the constant f/2.8, can consider the Canon 10-22 f/3.5-4.5. slightly wider, and very good reviews too. but will cost slightly over $1k.
