This is at odds with DxOmark's measurements. According to them it's extremely non-uniform w.r.t. sharpness, with the corners and sides being noticeably soft until you get to at least f/5.6 (at 11mm).

I quit looking at that site a long time ago.


And please don't assume if someone likes this lens they "don't care" or are too dumb to know if it's good or not.

I didn't say that.

"Which makes me think that despite the Tokina being really soft in the corners, people that use and love it just don't care."

To be clear, all I mean is that perhaps it's good enough, regardless of how sharp it is or isn't on some test, in that it produces photos they really like.  I would say the same of myself on the Nikon 10-24.  I know it's not very sharp - it's the least sharp lens I own, unless you count a 1977 55/1.2.  But I still like its results.
