I have been looking for a wide angle lens for a long time and have finally decided on the Tokina 12-24mm. When I went looking on eBay, I found there are two different types:

The only difference I can find is they've put some different coating on the glass – but there has to be more differences than that, right?

Also, does anyone have this lens? If so, what do you think of it?

From looking on DXOMark it appears the new one has its own focussing motor and it's a bit lighter as well as it has a new coating.

Tokina AT-X 124 AF PRO DX AF 12-24mm f/4 II has no screwdriver connection, has fast traditional motor and impossible to autofocus in LV mode in my Nikon D5100. Picture is scharp and attractive.
