I took this information from the Nikon AF-S DX 12-24mm f/4G IF-ED Review from Photozone:

"The Nikkor shows a relatively pronounced degree of 1.7% barrel distortion at the wide end of the zoom range, changing to slight pincushion distortions at 20mm and 24mm. At around 16/17mm, both types even out and consequently the lens shows almost no distortion at these focal lengths.

Compared to other lenses in this range this is a pretty good characteristic."

I don´t know the Nikon, but following this information it doesn´t make to much sense to switch to the Tokina 12-24 (which shows strong CAs).
