How does it compare to Sigma or Tamron. Think they have similar specs rite?
For Tamron, there's a 28-200mm F/3.5-5.6 IF Macro XR lens. Fairly good lens. Sharp but not super sharp. Lightest lens(465g) in the world for this class. Its known to be the ultimate travel lens. $400 from Cathay. Good bang for the buck model. The 28-300 F/3.5-6.3 is $600+.

What about pin-cushion effect?
No barrel distortion or pin-cushion effect at all at 24-28mm... perhaps its because I'm using D60 (1.6 FOV multiplier)?

its either i get the tamron 28-200 or this tokina lens. I've never used anything wider than 28mm - so is 24mm ALOT wider than 28mm?

Lillian, I think the Tamron lens has a shorter distance from the subject. Its very much lighter too.

The 28-200mm XR series with macro. Not sure if the Sigma one is on par.

These 2 lenses really good 4 a all-in-one combo.

Cheers
