I want to get a low range zoom. I am considering the following lenses.
1) Tokina 12-24 AT-X Pro - used but in good working conditon - approx. $375.00
2) Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM - Used and if seller bites for around $500 would be sweet deal.
3) Local camera shop has demo Tamron 17-50 DiII VC for $399 and would back it with a one year warranty (6yr Tamron would not apply since it is demo unit and price more than makes up for difference)
I hear the build quality on Tokina is outstanding and it is overall a good lens. Canon, although build quality is not on par with Tokina, this lens gets good reviews for image quality. Tamron - this lens always gets decent reviews also, plus has VC built in and I'd still have a year warranty if something went haywire.
Given these choices, which lens would you recommend and why?
