As can be seen by the replies already posted to this thread, both of these are fine lenses.

The Tokina is cheaper, heavier, (arguably sharper), and unable to accept (easily) filters. The Canon is more expensive, weatherproof, accepts filters, and has it's own issues.

Bottom line. I don't think you'll find a perfect wide zoom. It is all about compromise.

Either of these lenses are capable of making stunning images. The more I get into the art of photography, the more I realize how much larger my contribution is than the equipment I shoot. (not to minimize the importance of understanding your kit).

IMHO, you can't go wrong with either. I shoot with the Tokina, primarily because of the cost benefit ratio. Only you can answer the value question as it relates to your situation.
