Based on having briefly tried a ZF 18mm, and having a 17-35 AF-S and a old Nikon 18/4 K/Ai, I returned the ZF 18 and got the Nikon 14-24 for a few dollars more. The ZF 18 has way more illumination falloff from f/3.5 to f/8 than I was willing to tolerate. Both of the mentioned Nikon zooms and the old Nikon 18/4 are/were better in this one respect. For general image quality and sharpness the ZF 18 was very good.
