Anyone have any experience with the Tokina 24-70 2.8, and how it performs vs. the tamron 24-70 2.8 ?

I'm deciding between these 2 lenses.

Both are objectives which you may use with great success.

Both are objectives which are outperformed by modern models.

Some of the Tokinas I've gotten as gifts actually do pretty well compared to similar brand-name ones.

1: gear thread

2: personal preference, but I think Tokina makes my favorite zooms of any of the 3rd party makers. None of their lenses have IS, but its cancelled out by the fact that almost all their lenses focus internally/are effectively parfocal

3: the tokina 24-70 is supposed to be excellent-- so is the tamron 24-70 though, for that matter, and it has VC/IS. But I'm gonna suggest an alternative:

For a fraction of the price, you can find the old Tokina AT-X Pro (Mk I or II-- should be a 77mm filter thread) 28-70 f/2.6-2.8 for Nikon (adaptable to anything, with a manual aperture ring). This lens was based on an old, excellent design by angenieux, is parfocal, and its one of my favorite lenses. I used to use only primes until I got this lens. You can find it for like, 300-400 on ebay-- use the leftovers to get the tokina 16-28 f/2.8, which is also excellent.

High end Tamrons are fine.
They also offer much better warranty than Nikon.
