Tokina 50-135 f/2.8


Since I've started a Canon setup, there are some lenses I'm going to miss from the Pentax world, namely the chance to get the 50-135 DA*. I know this lens is very similar / based on the Tokina 50-135 f/2.8 which is available in Canon mount, but I wondered how good the Tokina version is? Does anyone have it, or used one? Is it any good?

It *is* the same optical design (Pentax's design, licensed for use on other mounts by Tokina). Only the coatings and the mechanics would differ.

Canon folks are very positive about this lens, although I think it might have actually been discontinued.
