This is a nice lens. I was able to find one at my local dealer when no one else had them in stock. It was also $599. The dealer didn't know much about the lens, it seems they some how ended up with one and it was sitting in the display case when I came in to test out a 7D. I like the lens alot, though my favorite lens is the Canon 17-55 2.8 IS.

There's a Hong Kong seller on ebay right now that has 10 available. They're running about 710 USD. For people who have used this lens, at the 11mm end, does the picture have much distortion?

I was really interested in that lens until I could not find one. I just ordered the EFS 10-22 instead. Both are really good lenses from what I have read.

I just received one that I ordered from a hong kong ebay seller. I was a little worried that I might end up getting scammed, but the lens arrived in 5 days in seemingly new condition (the box was slightly beat up, but the lens is flawless). I paid $695 US.. I realize its more than B&H but I couldn't wait as I need it for a trip I'm leaving on. I doubt it would be covered by any type of US warranty, but thats a chance I'm willing to take..

I can't comment on the distortion at 11mm, but theres lots of reviews of this lens available on the web.

Just Received Mine From B&H

I should have bought a lottery ticket on the same day. I had the Tokina 11-16 f2.8 on my wish list. I happened to be getting some other stuff, saw that it was apparently in stock and ordered it. A day after I ordered...out of stock again. Go figure. (Great glass by the way)

I got my lens (11-16mm) 2 days ago (I overpaid). One thing I like about it, is that it's real easy to get flares with it. I want an occasional flare or two in my videos, so I consider it a bonus.

Neither had in stock when I called. Tempted, but still wary, to order from overseas through eBay.

P.S. Just ordered on eBay through Taiwanese dealer Shuheido, who seemed to have good feedback. $614 + $59 shipping. Hope I don't live to regret this ;)

Adorama (who recently signed on as a DVi sponsor) also sells it for $20 less as a kit including a UV filter:

TN1116EOSK Tokina 11mm - 16mm F/2.8 ATX Pro DX Af Canon EOS Digital Mount Lens Kit, with Tiffen 77mm UV Wide Angle Filter, Professional Lens Cleaning Kit

Edit: Oops, shows to be out of stock at the moment though.

Hm, I didn't know this lens is so hard to get... Even here in Switzerland the EF version is pretty much sold out, I found one single store that has it on stock, but unfortunately they don't ship out of the country.

Just in case someone can use this opportunity somehow:
Heiniger Onlineshop: Digitalkamera | Video > Objektive > Tokina

715 Swiss Francs are about $650 (tax is included in CH)

I guess I got lucky when I bought it (or was it still available mid february?). I simply walked into the nearest/cheapest store and just bought it.

And yes, it's definitely worth the wait, I wouldn't want to look for an alternative.

As far as I can judge it the distortion is much less then I'd have expected of an ultrawide, I personally like it just the way it is. But the distortion is very smooth and easy to correct if needed.

I don't think I have to mention the outstanding sharpness... The only downside is that it's very prone to flares (with video more or less impossible to correct). But again, others like is ;-)
