We'll have to see if this updated WA zoom can make me sell my 17-35AFS.

And that is why I am not excited. Why would I give up a really good UWA zoom, with fixed aperture for a unit with variable aperture. If any thing you should have sold your 17-35 for the 16-35 f4.

It will be particularly interesting when (if) Nikon comes out with it's patented 16-35/2.8AFS VR.

Still not enough for me to give up an old friend. The 14-24 had me thinking for awhile. But when I held it at Photo Plus in NYC a couple of years ago, I knew that a honker like that would be used on an extremely limited basis. Certainly not a travel lens; even less so than the 17-35.
