I like ultrawides for travel so my vote goes for the CX 6.7-13.

My Tokina 12-24 has been looking/feeling like a monster lately. (:

I recommend the Nikon 12-24 or 10-24 with your D5100.

The 12-24 or the 10-24 is not that heavy and will give far better image quality than the CX system.

Tokina 12-24 is actually VERY heavy compared to the Nikon version.

Thank you very much for sharing your opinion.

I already tried the 10-24 mm in the camerashop, and indeed its weight is acceptable. Also the 24 mm is interesting because it allows to take the 10-24 as only lens ( reducing weight ) when hiking and combined with the 35 mm f1.8 and 55-200 VR offers a low weight solution ( a la KR ). The only disadvantage of the nikon 10-24 is its price IMO.
