Latest Review Posted Tokina 20-35mm 3.5-4.5
With the K-1 out there, price of FF wide angle lenses are getting sky high. The best options so far for the K-1 are the Pentax FA 20-35mm and the pricey 15-30mm. But there are other alternatives, better than the Sigmas and Tamrons 17-35mm, the Tokina 20-35mm. It's small, built like a tank!

It's sharp already wide open, only the angles are lagging behind. Close the diafragm to F8 to get fantastic results. Only problem I see is the CA's, those are big. Use a lens hood and stop down to get better results. Colors are splendid, specially greens and blues.

If you find one do not hesitate, the Pentax 20-35mm is a bit better but will cost you double. :hmm:
