The Tokina 16-28 is better and much cheaper than either of them if you don't want the best (the 14-24.)

Neither of these formerly good enough lenses are up to the "e" in my opinion.

There is an F4 17-35 Tokina as well, I need to have a look at that too. But are you saying that only the 14-24 is up to the "e"?
