You guys really need to stop rationalizing me buying these lenses... really.
Why would we go and do a thing like that?

For $200 more you have:
*SDM with full time direct manual overide;
*Weatherproofing (I don't think the Tokina has that);
*Shake reduction (I know it's not in the lens, but since you cannot get the Tokina for Pentax mount, you also have to buy a Canon or Nikon cam and they don't offer stabilization).

To me, the Pentax combo is well worth the extra $.
yes you are right, tokina's front element is waterproof, so the lens is not weatherproof...

now i agree with you about paying 200 dolar more....

...plus, MFT Table to allow you to use the Program Line's MFT mode, to have the camera automatically pick the lens's "sweet spot", based on ... someone help me here now... your focus distance and outside EV level?
