So I have been holding out on buying a tokina 11-16 because I knew there was the version 2 on its way, which was supposed to be a bit more expensive. I checked Nikonrumors yesterday and they had an amazon link, and there was a used version II of this lens available from an independent recently launched seller in Singapore...but the price was $499! This is cheaper than I have seen the version 1 sell for on this board. I contemplated for half an hour, thinking the Amazon return policy is great if there is a problem, but shipping back to Singapore might still be expensive. When I went to put it in my cart it was nabbed by someone else.
Would you have jumped on this super low price for a lens in high demand or stayed away because it was from a seller with no feedback from a foreign country?
Not sure what camera body your have, but the version 2 only adds a focus motor. If you don't need the focus motor then just get the cheaper version 1.
