Nikkor 14-24mm VS. Tokina 11-16mm

I've never really done a side by side comparo with lenses on a camera. For this little test I used a Nikon D300s and set up camp at the top of Mulholland. the setup was exactly the same except for one minor difference that I'll get to in a minute. I set the Nikon at the widest setting (14mm) and for the Tokina, I set it on the 14mm mark on the zoom ring. Both were taken at f/8 BUT I forgot that the camera was on aperture priority mode and the camera switched from 1/1000 to 1/800 for the 14-24. I matched the exposure in Lightroom so that there wasn't any exposure disagreement. That being said, this was more or less a sharpness test than a exposure accuracy test. Next time it will be set on manual. ;) I feel like Ken Rockwell. Click for full size image.
