    I bought a 17-70 f/2.8-4.5 sigma. I loved the tamron but it wasnt wide enough. The sigma is my walk around lens and the tokina will be for ultra wide needs.

    I got the Tamron with body when I bought it from my brother.

    I was about to pull the trigger too, until I realized it wasn't a full frame lens. Now I think I'm going to get the Nikon 18-35 3.5-4.5. Wish it was a faster lens. =(

    And I, too, want flashes! =(

    I bought it from adorama through amazon. $463 + $9 shipping. I did find a few used ones, but would just rather have new items.

    I'm wondering if the $30 difference between Adorama and B&H is worth the peace of mind...

    So it's a DX lens? Is a DX lens on a Tokina the same as a DX Nikon lens?

    No gym for home?

    I'm just wondering if it will AF on my stupid crippled D40?

    The tokina 12-24 won't AF on the D40.

    D40 can only use Nikon AF-S and Sigma HSM lenses to AF.

    As far as adorama goes, I hear good things about them as well, until it comes to customer service... I hear they're a BITCH to deal with on the phone, for various reasons.

    Assuming your product doesn't arrive defective or anything though, they should be good.

    you can pick up a D50 or D70(s) for about the same price you sell your D40. Just gotta look around, maybe craigs...?
     
  23. why didn't you get a sigma 10-20?

    I've read a few reviews and they basically say that the Sigma isn't worth the price difference unless you really want to go 10-wide.

    But I'm no expert.

    i've heard this several times too. granted, I'd love to have that extra 2mm sometimes but overall, the tokina is a great lens.
