Anyone with experience on the Tokina 100-300 F4 ATX? How does it compare with the Nikon 70-300 and the sigma 70-300 APO?

Even knowing it will stirr up some controversy:
This is my choice in order of preference in the value/price ratio of the lenses you mentioned:
1) 70-300mm F/4-5.6D ED AF Zoom-Nikkor (USD 300)
2) Tokina 100-300mm f/4 ATX 340 AF II (USD ?)
3) Sigma 70-300mm f/4-5.6 APO Zoom Macro Super (USD 320)
Have a great time

I have the 80-400 f4.0-f5.6 ATX tokina and I'm quite happy, I've enlarged shots to 12x16 with no problems with sharpness - all in all the lense is light, fairly fast and quite compact for the range. Acutally all I'm using these days is two tokina lenses. 20mm-35mm f2.8 ATX - Pro and the 80-400 ATX. Every now and again I wish for a 17mm prime so that might come some day, but for now.
