Hi,

Yes, it really is pretty sharp. I'm having some fun playing around with it. Northing remarkable worth posting. I'm hoping that with the improvement to the weather in the coming days, i'll have a chance to go out and shoot some landscapes.

Hi Marcelo,

As much as I've enjoyed using the Tokina in the short time that I've had it, I can honestly say that people who haven't had the pleasure of shooting with the 12-60mm SWD just really don't know what they are missing. I just haven't found anything comparable.

Oh, if Olympus could have incorporated an AF system similar to the Nikon.

I still miss the Zuikos. The 300 f2.8 is a near flawless lens, and twice the money spent on the 600 f4 has more issues to deal with. The 50 f2 was fantastic. The 35-100 is still the best zoom I've ever used. The 50-200 is very good, and spite if that lens' reputation of bad bokeh, the 70-200 VRII is perhaps worse in that department, and CA also at the long end.

Oh, the Oly glass!!!!

I shoot so much moving stuff, and Oly's market plan was going in a different direction. My Nikon stuff focus faster, quieter, more accurately, and the ability to shoot at higher ISOs adds yet another dimension.

What they say is true. No system is perfect. No system has all the bases covered. You just need to choose the best you can.

This is so true, it is not a perfect system...

I miss your post in the Oly forum at Dpreview Greg.

Regards.

Kind of you to say, but I can't say I miss that forum much at all. There are some nice folks over there, but also some that just cause trouble for the joy of getting under the skin of others.

I can't say it brought out the best in me, either.
