Continue to be happy with your lens. But if you continue to to pull this
"Oh yous be such a bad bad man foh dissin' mah stuff" crap with me, don't be
too surprized if my reply is less than polite.
Some say I don't suffer fools gladly, but they are wrong.
I don't suffer fools at all.

I am considering buying the 300D. And since I don't want to lug around
lenses, I too looked for reviews of this lens and it seems to have
gotten good reviews from its owners on dpreview forums. But since my
camera will arrive (from US to India) at the end of november, do post
your experience with the lens if you buy before me.

Cheers,

Siddhartha

I don't know, after I took it off and remounted it, it has worked just fine
ever since. In fact, I've had more lockups with the Canon 28-135 (2) than
errors with the Tokina (1).

I've seen a few lenses cause a problem the first time they are mounted,
and then never cause a problem again afterward.
