Tokina 16-50mm f/2.8 user report???
Aug 25, 2007

Anyone have this lens or can point to reviews in addition to the one on Photozone?

I understand Pentax makes the optics but Pentax and Tokina do their own lens coatings and body design/manufacturing. I have seen many Pentax user reports of their version. The posted images on Photozone are respectable with all but one either 16mm or 50mm, however no 16mm f/2.8 photos.

Thanks.

PS. dpreview search has been down for two days. I have searched before with minimal results.
