Hi Dennis.

The 24-70 is a particularly heavy lens, even when compared to other L series lenses.

I compared it in weight to the 17-40mm f/4 L and the 24-105mm and these felt lightweight by comparison.

The 24-70 comes in at close to 1kg...while the 17-40 is 475g and the 24-105 is 670g.

Yeah...have been checking many reviews on the Tokina and the Canon 10-22...and other lenses.

I still like the look of the Tokina and it has been recommended by a number of photographers whose opinions I regard highly. I've not made my mind up yet, though.
