7D + TOKINA 12-24 II experience anyone?

To start with, Hello and Merry Xmas to all.

I am about to buy a 7D, and an UWA. One on the shortlist is the Tokina 12-24 (together with EFS10-22, but the Tokina is much cheaper and the money would then go for another lens, but on the other hand the difference between 10 and 12 is significant).
Does anybody have experience with the combo 7D+12-24?
What about AF performance?
Is CA better controlled than with the version I of such lens?

what about durability? I played with one several times and it looks sturdy, but I read some negative reports.

How is the manual focus clutch in real life? the idea seems good, but it seems that you lose precise focus when switch from AF to MF.
Anyone used it underwater and if yes, in which housing??

Thanks a lot for your help
