Anyone has had experience with Tokina 12-24mm f/4 AT-X 124 AF Pro DX Lens ?

I am considering buying this as my wide angle to put on the front of a Nikon D90. I was just wondering if anyone has any first hand experience with this lens and could post up a couple of pictures or review of it.

Thanks

I do not have any experience with the 12-24 but why not spend the extra hundred and get the 11-16 f2.8? that lens is the best lens you can have for the price and speed.

I would except I can get a brand new 12-24 for $399! Which is a steal and quite a bit cheaper than the 11-16 which most people don't have stock of anyway.

i've never shot with the Tokina 12-24mm as I'm a owner of the 11-16mm.

here's a link to all Tokina 12-24 users on Flickr

I ended up buy the Tokina 12-24mm.
If anyone is looking for a wide angle, B&H has these at $399 and that is an awesome deal.
