There are about five versions of these lenses in the market, the Tamron, Tokina, Quantaray, Vivitar (Series 1) and Phoenix. Most reports shown the Tamron is better rated than the other three, the focus ring on the Tokina is a little loose than the Tamron but not a major problem. I think the Quantaray, Vivitar and Phoenix are probably made by Tokina. For about less than $200, their perfomance are acceptable. If you're looking for a better performance, the Nikon 18-35mm f/3.5-4.5 will come in handy for a little more than $400, but you've got the Nikon lens. Cheers is offline   Reply With Quote
