Tokina Vs. Canon
Jared Abram takes a look at the Tokina 28-80mm f2.8 Vs. the Canon 24-70 f2.8 as well as the Canon 70-200mm f2.8 L IS vs the Tokina 80-200mm f2.8. The Canons seemed to be a bit sharper than the Tokinas. The Tokina had a cooler/blue looking lens flare to my eye where the Canon was much warmer/yellow.
I'm guessing the Tokina's are new, as I can't find them listed at Amazon or B & H.
