I got the Sigma 12-24 II and it's pretty sharp also wide open. Then it depends what the OP means by "super wide", the sigma is the widest thing you can get (unless you get a fisheye and then use some special software for fisheye distortion correction), and that's why I got it. If 16mm is wide enough, than the Tokina seems to be the deal.
