And the Tokina 11-16 2.8 Pro is a great lens for Crop sensors to get that ultra wide with not much vignetting.
The only issue I have with third party lenses, is that it's a hit or miss on sharp versions.
Not a huge notice, but something noticeable to the advance amateur or pro photographers.
The Tokina 11-16 Pro is actually one of those that I have seen many more sharp versions than none. And gives you 16-17mm of view (in terms of conversion to a 35mm standard look) and it depends on your crop sensor.
If you have a full frame camera ... the 14mm, 14-24 and 16-85 are great lenses. Both on the Nikon and Canon sides.
But of course also are the more expensive for being glass for FullFrame.
Tokina nailed it with the 11-16 for sure. I have yet to see one that is garbage.
Im sure you can find a better deal on Lightroom than the prices you listed. ;)
