Just got my hands on this lens! I'm going to italy in April, do you recommend a CP with it? Or should I just save my money for more gelato? :)

Go for a B+W CPL and B+W ND106 ND filter, too, as Italy has many water fountains and springs....let the Italian dudes buy you the gelatos....c'mon now, as if you don't understand the game???!!! :p

up close, you'll be surprised at how thin the DOF is... focus actually matters!

I just got a 5D2 about a month ago and finally got a chance to strap this lens on. WIDE

Can someone post some test shots of this on a 5D with a 1.4x TC?

It allows for the use of the zoom range. There is a thread around here on it :D

but it's no longer the zoom range you bought it for. You would get around 15 at the wide end with an extender @ f/4. 15 is just fine on a 5D without the extender and you get f/2.8. I suppose it would make it like a VERY mini 17-40 type lens, but it's such a narrow zoom. I haven't used it it a ton on full frame, but kinda thinking of it as a prime (that you can give a slight tweak to).

Yup ive always thought of it as a prime on FF. I mean 15 on FF is very WIDE :D Thats why i would never sell it even if i went FF :cool:

I'm having a lot of concerns with respect to the sharpness of this lens. The right-side seems significantly less sharp than the left-side. Center is OK, but corners run from good to simply terrible.

I'll post some pictures when I get the chance but compared to my 17-55, well, really, there is no comparison. I don't feel I have time to exchange given I'm leaving in a week and a half for the purpose I purchased this lens. Anyone else with a similar experience with respect to bad sharpness uniformity, even at f/8? I'm not pixel peeping here. It's pretty obvious.

Sorry to hear about that. The 17-55 is a great lens as well. I haven't seen what you're talking about. Tokina doesn't usually have the quality control issues that you might find with Sigma, but even with Canon (Nikon) lenses you get a dud. Sounds like you might unfortunately have gotten a dud?:(
