The context of the 18-35 3.5-4.5G is actually quite simple. It joins the new 24-85mm VR and the 70-300mm VR to complete Nikon's trinity of affordable, variable aperture, "G" type, FX zooms for the D600 and any other cheaper FX cameras in the future. It's optical preformance is probably very similar to that of the 24-85mm f/3.5-4.5G VR.

Based on the initial images I've seen from the new 18-35 I'd say it's a cut above the 24-85 / 70-300 VR (which are very good)

I'd say each of these lenses progressively emphasize performance over range/specs less plus they cost progressively less, espeically here in the UK where the 18-35mm is 75% of the price of the 16-35mm VR.
