Coming from the Tokina 12-24 on DX, I bought the 18-35 along with the D600. I never really got the hang of the Tokina, *when* it delivered it produced some great shots at 12mm, but I never left it on the D90 for walkaround. The 18-35 is different, I really like it as a wide walkaround lens so far.

I only haven't found a way to get the extreme corners sharp even at f/8, but I didn't expect it. It's sharp and has good contrast, I like it at all focal lengths, and it even has nice OOF rendering for an UWA zoom, I think.

One example from yesterday (more and "test shots" showing the bokeh on my flickr stream):
