Those shots look incredible! And I have the D7100 as well. As I was trying to look on ebay for a good price for the Nikon 10-24mm but it's still rather expensive and that might just sway my decision towards the Tokina. If I do go for the older version though, I'm curious what upgrades there are to the newer lens and if it's worth taking a look at the newer one or sticking with the older version?

the new one has a focus motor, and apparently slightly upgraded lens coatings that reduce flare. Though from what I've read, they are optically equivalent and the differences are negligible, as both the new and old lens are prone to flare.

Here's a recent thread where this was debated -

Some say spend the extra money on the new one, some say the old is just fine.  Some say to buy the sigma instead.  I really think you can't go wrong with either of the three.  Just don't shoot straight into the sun.
