16-35 mm is a better choice
In reply to D L Miller, Aug 1, 2012

I will not consider 14-24 :

  • too heavy

  • cannot use filter to protect the front element (very important)

  • range is too short

  • f2.8 is nice to have but not that necessary (but then no VR)

  • quite expensive

I will go for 16-35 (indeed I'm using it) :

  • not too heavy

  • can use filter

  • range is okay for an ultra wide angle zoom

  • VR is very useful

  • less expensive

The 16-35 is a very sharp UWA zoom in its class.
