DPReview has completed their review of the Tokina 12-24 f/4 DX lens and have given it a very favorable review.
So overall the choice when considering a third-party lens in this class boils down to either the optical excellence of the Tokina, or the wider angle of view but compromised sharpness of its competitors (or at least those that we’ve tested so far). Now the difference between 12mm and 10mm is indeed significant; those 2mm cost 10 degrees in the diagonal angle of view (99Ã‚Âº as opposed to 109Ã‚Âº), so the question is whether you’re willing to sacrifice that ultra-wide perspective. But the rewards are, on the whole, worth it; the Tokina 12-24mm F4 simply produces superior images. If sharpness is your goal, it’s an option not to be overlooked.
