the lens seems worse than the Tokina in their test with a real problem with borders and corners at all aperture

I am aware of the photozone reviews, which I have found to be mostly if not always accurate.

The review you quote is an older one (2006?) on an APS-C D200, and not very favorable indeed. There is a more recent DX one  from early 2013, using a D7000, with more or less the same conclusions (and as it looks even some of the same tables?).

But lo and behold: the 20/2.8D was also tested by photozone on a full-frame D3X in May 2011, with a much more positive outcome...

I plan to find out for myself. The 20/2.8D is not too hard to re-sell if I end up disappointed, anyway...
