Here is another endorsement/review from Thom Hogan, a Pro photographer who's opinion I highly value. This lens is his go to wide angle for DX.
What Is In Thom's Bag?
Here is a link to his lens reviews and recommendations. The Tokina is near the end of the page.
**NOTE** His reviews are written for the Pro/Prosumer audience and are highly technical. It might seem he mentions so many flaws, but he is describing for Pros, precisely where anomalies present in all zoom lenses occur.
He also grades on a very tough scale that rivals Simon Cowell. I hear he has brought many Nikon executives to tears. Notice that there is only one lens that rates 5 stars. He rates this Tokina at 4 stars for performance, build and value.
