I used my 14-24mm on a D3 and a D3X until the lens got stolen (ouch!). Impressive lens indeed, for both landscape, photojournalism as well as for wedding. It took me a while to consider a valid replacement for this pretty cumbersome and heavy piece of glass (my only complaint).

I eventually decided for the 16-35 which gives me a wider focal range for a lighter weight. Took it on a mountain hike last week and it really convinced me that it was the right choice. Much lighter to carry around, the possibility to use filters (polaroid filter in this particular case) and excellent quality on D800 (at f/8).

For sure there'll come a day when I'll miss the 14-24mm, but I think those days will be few.
