WA lens choice, Sigma 8-16 f/4.5-5.6, Tokina 11-16 f2.8 ?
Jun 13, 2012

Looking at specs, reviews, comments, and features of the Sigma 8-16mm and Tokina 11-16mm and hoping to get feedback here from some that have owned either lens.

The Sigma wide end at 8mm is sure attractive although filters may not be used. The Tokina f2.8 is attractive, and it can accept a filter.

My application is mainly landscapes, but also building interior shots sometimes. I enjoy HDR landscape photos, but am pretty new to photography. So I am uncertain if using a circular polarizer or 'creative' gradient filters is something I need or not.

Which lens would you rather own?
