need help Tokina 20-35

I posted a question about the Tokina 20-35/f3.5-4.5 lens on DPReview but haven't had any response. I'll cross-post it here in case someone has used this lens before. My DPR post is below. This lens, if I get it, will replace my FAJ18-35. Thanks.
Hi all,

I've come across a Tokina AF 20-35 f3.5-4.5 lens from a dealer. I'm not sure if it's the Mark I or II, but I suspect it's the Mk I. I took a quick look at it. You don't see all metal construction much anymore.

I'm considering buying this lens and I'm talking to the dealer about trading in a FAJ 18-35 that I never use.

I've done a search on this site and read the Photozone reports. I guess I should throw this question out there. Are there any problems or issues that I should be aware of? I did read a couple of reports of the lens being prone to flare, but this isn't a problem with other users.

I have a few days to think about this and do more research. Thanks in advance.
