    I think if the image quality is better and the lens is lighter i would. Also, no infinity focus problem.

    Canon EF or Nikon F Mount (APS-C/DX Coverage)
    Aperture Range: f/2 to f/22
    One Plastic-Molded Aspherical Element
    Two Glass-Molded Aspherical SD Elements
    Two Super Low Dispersion Elements
    Multi-Layer Anti-Reflection Coating
    Internal Focus; One-Touch Focus Clutch
    Nine-Blade Diaphragm
    Price/Availability: TBA

    Will I want to give up 17mm focal range for a mere 6mm?

    I don't have the Sigma, but I might consider the Tokina to complement my Canon FD collection. I don't currently own anything wider than 24mm, so a 14-20 f2 would be pretty perfect. Let's cross our fingers for performance.

    I have the 18-35 and love it. Wouldn't give it up for this, but would add this to collection to get a bit wider.
    Ursa 4.6k, Pocket Cinema 4k, BMCC, GoPro Hero4 Black, Mavic Air, Phantom 2, Canon T3i, Lots of glass.

    These are two completely different lenses. Not even sure why you would think one could replace the other. In addition to maybe but by no means a replacement.

    I don't replace lenses, I just buy more of them lol. But even then, the sigma is my most used lens and you'd have to rip it out of my dying hands before I gave it up. This new tokina sounds nice as well though.

    Im going for the Tamron 15-30mm 2.8 this year. Had the 11-16mm tokina, loved the wideangle but didnt like the look. It will be interesting to see how sharp the Tokina will be at f2 tho.

    I don't think anything will replace my sigma. Its just that good. Its my most used lens on my BMCC. I'd just add the Tokina if it were that good and I needed that range.
