I was looking for some fast glass for portraits, etc. I had a budget of about $800 (not enough, I know) and was struggling with the Tokina ($650) and the Sigma 50-150mm 2.8 ($750). I was about to pull the trigger on the Sig and searched around for some more reviews and was hard-pressed to find a critical review on the Tokina. The Sigma was mostly good, but did have some complaints about wide-open performance. Although I won't be doing much at 2.8 in the way of portraits, I was a little concerned about this. I hope I made the right decision. I will update y'all sometime next week!! Does anyone have this lens now?

Would love to hear your reactions and see some shots. I'm thinking of getting it to fill the gap between my 17-55 and 80-200. I'm inclined towards the Tokina because it has a tripod collar.
