D90 with Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 Lens

I have recently splurged on my camera’s bag when I bought the Crumpler bag last weekend. My extravagant shopping didn’t end there after I stopped resisting the itch of getting the long have been wanted 11-16mm f/2.8 Ultra Wide Angle lens from Tokina. I bought this new addition to my lens collection from Henry’s camera shop in Hidalgo.

Here’s a sample shot of the Quiapo Church, the Basilica of the Black Nazarene:

Here are the shots of my new lens using my 35mm f/1.8 on a Nikon D60:

This is the third lens I bought since I acquired my Nikon D90 less than a year ago.
