Tokina lenses any thoughts ?

Over the last few weeks due to dreadfull service from Canon I've had a serious think about whether to sell all my kit and buy the Mazda MX5 I've always wanted. This isn't a joke I am realy seriuos.

However I worked hard for it and I'm loathed to lose money so I guess I'll stick with it for now.

I won't however ever spend the silly money I have done.

I've been looking at a

Tokina 100mm f/2.8 D AT-X M100 AF Pro Macro Lens

Anyone had any epeience with Tokina I appreciate any knowledge.

I would have gone for another Canon lens maybe the 100mm f2.8 Macro but I'm in a world of pain with Canon as it is.

Any thoughts

I have a Tokina 12-24mm and love it built like a tank, most of my landscape shots in my gallery have been taken with it, the 100mm macro might be a different kettle of fish all together. I'm sure there's a plethora of reviews out there!

Every report of the any of the Tokina lens for Digital cameras has been very favourable.

I had several Tokina lenes for my film camera many years ago and they were great.

Also consider the Sigma range. Over the years I've used several and they've all been more than adequate for my needs.

Ordered a Tokina 100mm, I'll let everyone know what it's like when I get it and get my 5D2 back from it's second visit to Canon in a week.

Mind you I may just bung it on my new high tech 1000D Lol

I know a lot of peeps like Sigma but to be honest I don't like them myself
