The 16mm 2.8 has issues that are measurable and quantifiable, and these things have been measured and quantified by sites such as photozone.

I always laugh when I read comments about how inexperienced photographers shouldn't complain about equipment because they wouldn't know how to get the most out of good equipment. The reasoning behind such statements is entirely backwards. Experienced photographers will have the knowledge and (often) the willingness to invest the time to get good results from poor equipment. Less experienced photographers, or people with less time, are in GREATER need of good equipment because they are less able to work around problems.

It turns out that anybody can legitimately want a sharp lens. It's hard to imagine that I would need to justify that, but the group-think and rationalization around here has created an environment where people need to be reminded of this.
