    Cons: Soft wide open, low contrast compared to Canon lenses. It has also the tendency to show CA like all Tokina lenses, it is kind of brand signature...

    Pros: Well constructed, compact, low distorision and vignetting, light sharpness falloff in extreme corners. Soft wide open but it improves quickly and from f/5.6 sharpness is ok.

    Summary: You can't go wrong with this well balanced ulta-wide lens. It is one of the few that can be used for arquitectural work without problems. It is not super-sharp but sharp enough for me and for many others I think. Quaity/price ratio is ridiculously high.

    Cons: - on modern digital SLR only manual focus, but with AF confirm - resolution performance a bit outdated by todays standards - it's just not up to date anymore

    Pros: - build like a tank is no exaggeration - virtually no distortion and no CA - sharp over all of the picture - compared to zooms it's optics are flawless - perfect Landscape prime for APS-C, equiv. to 28mm FF

    Summary: I used it for a long time on the first Digital Rebel, before there have been decent Zooms starting @17/18mm out on the market. It was the perfekt outdoor landscape lens for me, but can be beaten by good zooms today when it comes to resolving power. I do not own it anymore, the 17-55 f2.8 IS is better in resolution at 17mm. But not in other aspects as the low level of distortion and CA is still unmatched by any zoom, I find.
