There are some very nice shots in here. Here are some pics from my first day with this lens:

Thank you, I'm really enjoying this lens. Well worth the meager price, IMHO.

Yes, after 8 months, I can definitely attest to it being a really good value prime lens. I need to start posting some more samples! :) :)

Really? That's kinda conflicting with my own tests. I found the center sharpness at 2.8 to be identical at infinity - see tests earlier in this topic. Corners of the Tokina were of course miles ahead.
At very close distances, the Tokina is sharper but seems to have a tiny bit less contrast than the Tamron (possibly due to the hood not being on the tokina). It does show much better and smoother bokeh though.

Eitherway, the 17-50 is great, so if you don't shoot anything closer than 1:4 (I think that's the Tamron's max magnification) you're better off with the versatility of a zoom anyway.

Im not saying that tokina is a bad lens - I was just expecting it to be much better than a budget zoom like tamron 17-50

Has anyone got samples from this lens on a 5d?

It's a crop lens by design, so using it on FF would probably show a huge amount of vignetting or even a black circle around the image. On FF there's some other options with roughly the same FoV, like the Canon 50mm f/2.5 compact macro (1:2 max magnification without adapter though) or the Sigma 50mm f/2.8 macro.

saw a couple of shots from pentax da 35mm ltd on film and the vignetting was negligible - will have to get a 5d myself I suppose, will let you know about the result.

I just picked this lens up a couple days ago. So far I'm pleased with it! I didn't have a macro lens, and while shooting 1:1 Macro is nice, it's not really practical with this lens due to the working distance.

That being said, I love being able to get close then the standard lens. I do a lot of product buying and selling and having a lens to get right up in there to get the details is invaluable. I was also looking for a "normal" prime lens. I've had the 18-55mm IS (3 different times), the 17-85mm IS (twice), the 15-85mm IS, and a couple other "walk around" lenses and haven't really been happy with any of them. I wanted the 35mm f/2, but when looking ran across this guy on CL. I couldn't find any info on it (hit this forum AFTER). I gave it a try, and I'm definitely pleased. I'm hanging onto a 18-55mm IS for snapshots, but this is the new "on camera" lens for me.

Bump - I came across this lens and became very interested. The distortion looks negligible and the close minimum focus distance is a big plus...

The "slow" maximum aperture is the only thing I see that may cripple this lens... anyone else care to contribute pictures?
