Just picked up this lens today and drove by a construction site. Thought the framing of the building would provide an idea of its capabilities.

Yeah, I was waiting to find a slightly used one...but finally decided the wait wasn't worth it since (with shipping, PayPal fees) I probably wouldn't save much.

Here is a comparison of the wide and long ends. Taken on a cloudy day.

Nice pics Walter. I going to take the plunge and buy the Tokina 12-24 at the end of the month.

I guess I should just bite the bullet, so to speak, and just get one. I had been to a camera shop here and inquired about the lens and it was somewhere a little over $1000...yikes...that was a Sigma lens! I know I can get the Tokina for half that at BH Photo, although I have to consider the U.S. exchange. It would still be a lot cheaper though than what I'd pay here. And what I like about the Tokina opposed to the Sigma is that it has a fixed aperture of f4 compared to the Sigma being an f4.5-5.6.

Thanks for posting the comparison shots. It really does look like a really great lens!
