My apologies if this topic has been discussed before. I'm new to the site and have only had my D7K for about 2 weeks. I've not really used it in anger yet. Have today picked up a Tokina 11-16mm, having read numerous good reviews. However I've just been reading on a number of other forums about a load of problems people have been having with compatability issues, mainly around autofocus. Apparently one of the largest lens hire companies in the US has even issued a warning about pairing them up. Has anyone here experienced any issues? I tried them this evening, just shooting in my back garden and noticed that sometimes it did not sound as if the lens was focusing. However if you first focussed on something really close (a couple of feet) and then aimed at something futher away it would seem to focus every time. This was something that others had also mentioned on other forums.

It's possible that it's simply me being a bit of a novice and making a basic error. I had the camera set to spot metering and single point focus, to keep it simple.

Any feedback advice would be welcome.
thanks
John
