I'd be interested in a direct comparison to the 17~35mm f2.8. I love that lens but often wish it was smaller because it would be easier to use as a two-lens kit if it was. I think I could give up the fast aperture as long as I wasn't compromising IQ (much). I have a Sigma 35mm f1.4 if I need a fast lens.

I had the old 18~35 but it wasn't on a par with the 17~35 and I tended to use it on it's own on DX so was less bothered about the relative size. (I'm FX now). I tried the 16~35 but it is just as big (or bigger?) and I don't need VR in this range. The new 18~35 could be the lens I have been looking for.
