Check out KRW review of the digital WA zoom lenses available. There are also many such reviews on the net. Check those out.

I got the Tokina 12-24 f4 lens recently from CP at $900+ that comes with all the freebies like the Lowepro Compu Backpack, CF card, etc.

seems like MS is giving a better dial IF CP doesn't have that promotion. @ $920 can get the lens + a hoya HMC 77mm filter. :thumbsup:
Don't think there ia any more promotion. $50 for the compubackpack, 1gb CF card, etc is a good deal. Worth it just for the compu backpack, which is like >$100 at CP.

Good. I got the Tokina after reading the review, and Its great for travelling, landscape. No regrets, though I had no use for the hood.
actually i like the hood... this lens got a 77mm front which is pretty big, and the hood helps me to avoid me or stranger from accidently touching it. :sweat:
