Photozone.de hints that the 17-35mm is better stopped down thoughout the range and alot better at either end of the range. The test charts on the digital picture on the other hand seem to hint the 17-35mm is better at the wide end while the 16-35mm is better over the rest of the range in the corners.

I think I'm inclined to agree with bits of both. The 17~35 seems better overall despite the 16~35 being better in the corners. We are nit-picking though. They are both excellent lenses. I don't feel the need for VR in this range but if I did I would swap. Otherwise I think the 17~35 is just a tad better and of course a stop faster.
