Re: IMO, go with the Tokina

In my opinion, the Tokina is the way to go. As long as you can live without the ability to use screw-in filters, it's really nice. Stopped down to f5.6 or greater, it's almost completely sharp all the way to the corners on my 5D III. Way better than my old Canon 17-40mm and from what I've seen, should be sharper than the Canon 16-35mm too. They did a great job with this lens.

I took it to Glacier National Park to break it in and loved it.

Are you telling us these shots are better than ''what you've seen'' out of a 16-35f2.8L II? Really?

I'm saying that, based on the reviews and sample photos I've seen from the 16-35 and my first hand experience with the Tokina, the Tokina is at least as sharp in the center of the frame and very noticeably sharper in the corners.
