Very, very little difference

This is an old thread, but I'd like to add that after doing some quick tests with a D800 & the 14-24 @ f/8 & f/11, optimized for hyperfocal distance, I could just barely discern the difference in sharpness at 100%. F/8 did look slightly sharper if I stared at the two for quite awhile, and f/11 did have slightly greater DOF. If you switched up the samples though, and didn't let me know which was which, I would have had a difficult time picking between them.

I'm testing against the Zeiss 21mm soon too. I'll try and give you visual results.
