I went almost the same way than you :

14~24/2.8 : fantastic IQ but too big and heavy for my use (shame, really)

14/2.8 : loads of CA, expensive

18/2.8, 18/3.5, 20/2.8, 20/3.5 : good for film but average results on D700

16~35/4 : great IQ, filters, but slow aperture and too long for my use

17~35/2.8 : better than any 2.8 prime in the same range, sharp corners from f/5.6 on D700, excellent build quality, filters, great size

if carefully choosen, you won't have any squaking problems. I bought mine used but it was just one year old (last batch which is 15g lighter for what it's worth).
