    Decided I was posting more than shooting and learning about taking pix. So I did that more.

    BeachCamera.com, well known and respected on this forum, has the tokina for $449, and the Canon for $699.

    Where can you get the canon for $629 (449 + 180) ?

    I bought the tokina and love it -- but the EF-S lenses don't fit my 10d anyway.

    Also, at BeachCamera, the tokina is $450 vs $700 for the canon -- $250 or 55% more.

    Given a chance I would invest...

    No, what you see through the viewfinder is (within reason) the picture you get.

    The view finder is looking at a mirror, which is looking through your lens. When you snap the pic, the mirror flips...
