I wouldn't want to sacrifice quality by buying second rate tokina glass. If i want such a short telephoto length I would just buy the 15-85. That, paired with the 70-200, makes a fine combo, IMO.

I can understand your choice, but I would not call the 50-135 second rate. Build quality is almost perfect and completely up to L quality standards. Also IQ was on par with my 70-200 f4 non-IS I owned back then. A pity it did not have USM FTM type of focus.

I apologize for the 'second rate glass' comment. It was wrong of me to comment on a lens I haven't actually used. I have actually considered Tokina products in the past, but in the present moment I lost my head and got all 'canon superior'.
