Sharpness is definitely not a concern with the Canon.

Both are good lens and both are sharp. Ask yourself if you wnat/need 2.8. If not, Canon is a great choice. I used Tokina. Distortion at 12 and 13mm is quite visible tho software can correct it. Flare could be a problem sometimes but I am okay with it as I didnt shoot directly to the light source with the lens as often. And for indoor handheld wide angle, Tokina's apreture makes it an easy choice. Focus speed is super fast even it has no USM. And it's built quality is just above the Canon.

For Canon, it's falre control is much more effective. the range is just great. You can almost have the 10-22 as a walk around. Of course USM is there and it's resell value is better I believe.

Do you have a Tokina 11-16? or have you used either before? Your comments were helpful thank you ;D

I have had the Tokina for ~year now on my t3i; and it's my favorite lens. (Thus; implied confirmation bias)

Really? Do explain, please?

Tested both. Tokina had some wobble on the focus ring. Canon has a bit play on the zoom.

I'm more bothered on the wobble though.

I own both and what Tom says is correct. I keep the 11-16 just for astro shots, for everything else the Canon is my tool of choice - because it has a better range, near-identical sharpness, slightly better CA and hugely better flare handling.

The only advantages the 11-16 has are price, aperture (which is normally meaningless as far as DoF is concerned on an UWA) and build quality (which may be important if you intend to use the lens as a hockey puck).

ooh cool! thanks !!

Thank you :)

I got my first SLR about 12 years ago, but only really got serious about it 3 years ago.

Anyway, to reiterate:
If you want a lens for general use, the Canon is the one to get. If you want a specialised lens for interior shots and night sky shots, the Tokina is the better choice. Frank has both, so I'd listen to him more than me since I only have the Canon.

Thats awesome! Thanks, you've been very helpful! :]

I have the Tokina and love it. The 2.8 is nice, even if its not a HUGE improvement over the canon at F3.5 @ 10mm. It is enough for me.

I dont go shooting large landscapes at night but I do like to shoot candids of people at night without flash. You really need a faster lens than 2.8, but the Tokina does fine and helps you get the people as well as part of the scene in the frame without having to back yourself up into a small corner.

Hmm I do like to shoot landscapes, but night shots would be cool too. That is definitely something to consider. Thanks ! :]

Oh wow, yeah that's definitely cool that tokina can focus fast even without USM . Hmm flare maybe an issue if I plan to shoot a lot of landscape pictures. It's great that it can also count as a good walk around lens . Thanks for the comment :]

It wobbles, like the built is bad? Is that a common problem?

The tokina wobbles? I really dont remember it did that. It's built quailty is top notch. This is the first time I hear compliant about that.

Good stuff guys! I'm in the same boat as the OP'er, but I added the Sigma 10-20mm f4-5.6 into the mix. It's so hard to pick between the three!

if they all cost the same which would you pick? -- that's the best lens :D.

I've had the Sigma 10-20, Tokina 11-16 (v1), and Tamron 10-24. My favorite was the Tokina 11-16. I don't remember which is which anymore, but the Sigma and Tamron was either not sharp, noisy focusing motor or both.

Didn't pick up the Canon 10-20... I wanted the option of f2.8 once I got my hands on the Tokina.

I, too, liked the clutch mechanism. Mine never wobbled. I had two copies of the Tokina - one was stolen and the other was the replacement. No issues. Build was very nice. I liked flare in some of the shots, too, especially when the subject was a person.
