I have twice, and both rather recently:

1) Nikkor 20mm f/2.8 D - bought it used, wasn't thrilled with performance, especially wide open.

2) Tamron 17-35 f/2.8-4 - bought it used; IQ was pretty good, but the build quality was just terrible. I wasn't confident that it would last more than a month or two.

My quest for a good, affordable wide angle for my d600 (to replace my excellent DX Tokina 12-24 f/4) continues...
