If you have this lens please post some pictures you took with it. If you're thinking of buying a wide angle lens, consider this one.

Below is a photo of what the lens looks like and the first shot I ever took with my Tokina 12-24 lens.

Snir, your lens is still amazing and its my most fun lens in my bag. I love it ! Yes the Canon and Sigma 10-20 are 2mm wide, but the Tokina is still a great lens for the money.

The 2mm difference I think goes into the build. I feel like I can throw this thing across the room and it wont break (not trying it). Just amazing.

i'm happy that you like it, its always nice to know that your gear is in good hands. honestly, i would have never sold it if i needed UWA. however, i find my 17-40L a little better fit for my needs but i do miss my Tokina when i take landscape shots :(

Ha, I replaced my 17-40L with the Tokina, and you replaced your Tokina with the 17-40L. For me, the 17-40L was too much overlap with my 24-70L, where as the Tokina fit in perfectly. I'll have to get some pic's up. My avatar was taken with the Tokina.

I love my Tokina 12-24. Fantastic lens. Sharp, extremely well built, etc.

Here's a few:

Congrats on the new lens :).

I Took these yesterday behind the local foothill. Some local contrast enhancement with PS2.

If putting a 17-40 (using the 17mm end) on a 5D, would it produce the same UWA effect as the 12-24 on a 350D?
