Are the Nikon lenses really, really that much better optically than the new atx-pro Tokina lenses. Come on, with todays technology I find it hard to believe that a person, pro or not, could tell the difference between a photo shot with a Nikon 35-70 2.8 and one shot with a Tokina ATX 28-80 2.8.(Assuming that the technical aspect of the photos are exactly the same). I am trying to decide between these two lenses. The money savings is not that great, not an issue, but the newer Tokina seems to have newer autofocus technology. How many people on this bord could put two photos of the exact same subject side by side and tell which one was shot with which lense? I don't mean to be offensive, I just want some opinions. Also, Moose uses and raves about Tokina lenses but he also digitally alters his photos(what a big bad no no). Would he rave as much if he didn't use the computer to manipulate the image? Any help with this matter would be greatly appreciated. I have the Tokina 300 2.8 and I am quite pleased with it and the price. Thanks. Roy.
