Re: Nikon 10-22mm f3.5-56 or Tokina 11-16mm f2.8?

I did a lot of research on multiple web sites and decided on the 11-16 Tokina. Almost every review shows one stop from wide open it has great performance across the frame. Even wide open the corners are decent at every focal length, one stop down it's good everywhere. My limited testing so far shows they are right. Plus for a F2.8 lens it's compact and fairly lightweight. Lens rentals did note some people have had problems with inaccurate AF (and some errors?) using the 1st gen on a D7000 so I bought the second gen/focus motor model.
