Has anyone had both of these lenses? Which one did you end up keeping? I just picked up a new Toke for about the same price as I bought my Wigma for used on the forum, so price isn't the issue here. I just wanted to know if anyone saw a significant increase in IQ between these two lenses and whether they found distortion to be better controlled in either one.

The loss of 17-20 isn't a big deal to me since I used the Wigma on 10-15mm 90% of the time. I do a lot of shooting indoors so the 2.8 of the Tokina is already a plus. Although when I do indoor shots I'll also usually have my 420ex, so the faster speed isn't a necessity, just a nice extra should I not have my flash with me. I'll also be using it for landscapes since I go hiking/kayaking fairly often.

Once the Toke arrives I'm going to have to decide which one to sell and it'd be nice to get everyone's opinion since I might not have time to do an exhaustive test. I've seen people comparing the Toke to the Canon 10-22, and the 10-22 compared to the Wigma, but not many posts comparing the Toke to the WIgma (I searched all the lens threads). Any help would be great. Thanks :D

I bought the Toke and took it into town and did some comparisons with a loaned Sigma 10-20... I didn't keep the images, but I found the Toke noticeably sharper at 11 and 14mm and F5.6 anyway. cheers,

I've had both and like them equally well. I need the 2.8 more than the better range due to a lot of indoor groups. IQ is the same.

That's surprising to hear Irishman. The few reviews I've found that compare the 10-22, 10-20, and 11-16 say that the Toke is sharper. Especially at the edges and even at 2.8.
