Bought one last time. Sent mine to tokina because it seemed too soft. Haven't gotten it back yet. Check you tube for reviews. I will say it is a fun lens to try diffrent things.

I did get it back and they said it was fine. I prefer sharper images personally. Look at these samples on their homepage carefully. You can see some of the softness.

I think I might bite on this. My 18-55 bit the dust (though all it really needs is a new bayonet mount) and I've always wanted a little wider shooting "general purpose" lens (I like shooting landscapes)..

Not really. Assuming you have APS-C like pretty much everyone else here, a Canon "nifty fifty" 50mm f1.8 would be better for portraits.. cheaper too.

Ultra-wide lenses like this are better suited for landscape and indoor "real estate" shots.

PS: By all accounts, this thing is built like a tank. The advertised weight (~1.15 pounds) supports that.

I had the Canon 10-18(someone stole it)
Anyone have direct experience with both? How do they compare?
And wonder if I'd miss the 2mm on the wide end, I shoot a fair amount of real estate(indoor)

Currently using my back-up Sigma 10-20
so heavy compared to the Canon 10-18

The Tokina weighs in at almost 1.2 lbs so it's a tank. By comparison, the 10-18 is ~0.53 lbs.

Ken Rockwell's review of the 12-28 seems to be pretty praise-heavy [kenrockwell.com]

I'd say the wider focal length adds versatility. Given that I lean more toward landscape than portrait type pics, the 12-28 will likely replace my (already broken) 18-55 for general purpose.

...and to pay for this, I might sell my Rokinon 8mm f3.5 fisheye (it's neat, but I almost never use it because it's only good for one thing).

Tokina doesn't make one for Sony.

Good price. 19-45mm good general range. I'm curious, though, how this compares to Canon latest vetsion of the ef-s 18-55 kit in the way of sharpness, contrast, etc.

Well, the 18-55 STM has the very quiet STM motor for starters, it's also quite a bit lighter.

Sharpness looks pretty good. Ken Rockwell's review has a few samples [kenrockwell.com]
