    Asides from the 18-55 kit lens, I don't have any other wide angle lens for my D80. I'm interested in the Tokina 11-16, but I've been hearing mixed messages about it: It's sharp, but it has bad CA; it's great for the price, but I've heard the QC isn't that good and that some have problems with focusing on the right side of the lens.
    The 2.8 is appealing, but how often will I use it at 2.8? Should I just get the 12-24 4.0? :o

    have you ever felt like you need a faster lens?

    No. Usually when I use the lens is during the day. shooting at f5.6-8. Im just a gear whore and everyone says the 11-16 is sharper :rofl: If it were available I wouldnt upgrade just yet.
