Peter Bendheim: I think it's really impressive (and I'm a die hard Nikon user) apart from the logo. I would happily own one. Just a few short years ago high end pro cameras didn't have this sort of spec and you couldn't have dreamed of this sort of camera at an affordable price. Trouble is cameras have improved dramatically, as have the usual loud unsatisfied voices, but the level of image making has not improved in equal measure.

like the last sentence the most. well put.

On photo Autumn Reflections in the Photographer audition: Postcard challenge (6 comments in total)

just shows its less about the equipment and more about the vision and skill of the photographer. This certainly is a 1st place photo and worthy of a large print but not sure how it would do with the comparatively "low" resolution. If you could it would make an excellent 24"x36" im sure.

iso 8000 looks great

I will be seriously considering this option. Of course after full reviews and testing that is but it looks promising nontheless

There was a poll taken i read somewhere and it said that alot of people didnt use the IS in the 24-70 to begin with. Though I dont own one myself I do not see this as a negative. I own one lens with IS and its never engaged. Every other lens i own does not feature IS and i dont ever miss it. To me the exclusion of the IS feature in the 24-70 would suggest a more affordable price point...or at least a very competitive one. A price point at which I may very well bite...that is if its reasonable.

Refreshing to see some genuine competition rolling out finally

Excellent! cant wait to try it. It will certainly be on my shortlist. If its anything like the 16-28 or the infamous 11-16 (Ive rented both) Tokina will hav another winner on its hands and some more cash from me.

If all I ever had were Tokina and Canon lenses Id be a happy camper

Well, i wont be entering dp challenges again any time soon. I did not expect to win but entering into a rigged and manipulated competition seems counterproductive to me.

MeneM: If it's anything like their stellar 11-16mm or the phenomenal 50-135, FX user will have a good option here! (I'm still hoping they won't forget the DX users out there though)

it will certainly make a great affordable semi wide angle for aps-h (1dmk2) sensor cameras as i dont have and cant afford a full frame yet and the 16mm 2.8's are stratospherically priced. it will have to be competitively priced against the canons 17-40 but shouldnt be that hard to beat in terms of sharpness. The only third party producer ive come to respect in terms of quality, price, performace and build are the tokinas! I would be happy if all i ever had were tokinas and canons.
