I mostly just plan to get the ultra-wide to expand the focal length range I already have. I would use it 90% of the time for landscapes, but pull it out sparingly for event photography.
The reason I’m liking the Tokina is because it would expand my range beautifully (from a 28.8mm equivalent to a 17.6mm equivalent) and would open up my possibilities for any specific situation.
The reason the Rokinon interests is because I’d like to give star/night photography a try, and the image sharpness and f/2 minimum aperture appealed to me.
As I haven’t tried much star/night photography (and I’ve heard people have gotten nice results with the Tokina anyway), I’m leaning towards the Tokina. Also, the fact that I’d have to go through the trouble of taking off my 18-200mm for a mere 2mm focal length change isn’t looking that great.
