The Tokina 11-16mm 2.8 has built a solid reputation as one of the best ultra wide zoom lenses available and in many cases outperform first party lenses in the same focus range. I use this lens myself on my Nikon DX camera and find that I get much better results from it compared to the Nikkor 12-24mm that cost a lot more. While there is still a bit of distortion present as can be expected of lenses in this range it is much easier to correct in post processing than photos taken with the Nikkor 12-24mm. If you own a Nikon camera and want an inexpensive but quality ultra wide lens then you simply cannot go wrong with this Tokina. If I owned a Canon I might have been swayed by the Canon 10-22mm lens instead but it all comes down to how much you are willing so spend on your equipment.
