Tokina 11-16mm f2.8 Pro DX Mk2
9 months ago

I've been looking for an UWA lens for six months for landscapes, architecture and interiors and after a lot of thought I made my mind up to buy the new Tokina 11-16mm f2.8 Pro DX Mk2 but I'm now having second thoughts. The lens for Sony A mount is a whopping £649 and the only difference between this and the old Tokina 11-16mm seems to be new lens coatings for "slightly improved optical performance" and an internal silent AF motor. Incidentally the Canon / Nikon version is £599.

I can get the old version of the lens new for £499 and save even more if I buy second hand.

Do any owners of the old lens feel that it's worth paying a premium for improved lens coatings and a silent AF motor? I have my doubts.
