CONCLUSION - my choice...
In reply to strathglass, Jul 13, 2012

I made my decision:

I decided to spend my bonus money on a 14-24 f/2.8.

I almost bought the Zeiss 21mm f/2.8 and would still like one of those! But after lots of reading I realized I am more of a zoom person mainly because I really like the flexibility it offers!

Also, the Nikon zoom was cheaper, got it on sale for $1679CAD at Vistek (vs. $1997US at B&H) (could have gotten it even cheaper at Aden, but they're not really as reputable in Canada as Vistek). (The Zeiss was a little bit more: $1759CAD at Downtown Camera, compare that to $1843 at B&H ... some items are definitely cheaper in Canada compared to B&H US prices.)

Sure I can use this on the D300s (3mm wider than my 17-55! ), but obviously this is just gearing me up for a D800!

Thanks for all the input.
