I got rid of the Sigma 10-20mm some months ago because of 'softness' issues , and I didn't the like strange curved distortion either . I've done my homework and the Tokina gets good reviews and my new lens arrived today .
Don't attribute too much of the colours to the lens - I did a levels adjustment and a slight saturation bump on these images .all at F2.8
My house .
I just got back from a meal in town .... my Friday night 'treat' .
The Tokina 11-16 is already my favourite lens of all time , in less than a day .
Here are some shots at F2.8 , all iso 3200 on the D90 .
