Is Zeiss 21mm that much sharper than the 17-35mm (at 21mm)

Dilemma,

Is the Zeiss 21mm sharper than the Nikon AF-s 17-35mm (at 21mm). The reason is that I cannot get hold of or full resolution samples. As much as I love the Nikon I have read that the is Zeiss fantastic and given that it's a Prime lens at a very expensive price does anyone have any experience comparing the two. Please only comment on the two lenses and I know that there is the extraordinary 12-24mm and the 16-35mm but my asking is of these two only. Ideally anyone shooting on Nikon's D3X.

Thank You

Gareth Hacon
