Why you did not like the 16-35? Mine on my D800 is a very good performer. I think the new 18-35 has no VR compared to most new lenses. I don't know about the new one, but I used to have the old 18-35, it was not sharp on the corners and it was quite noticeable when shooting a group of people.

The 16-35 is a far better lens:

I may keep the 16-35 for the VR (though so far, I've only used that in deep shade -- e.g. at Muir Woods). It isn't particularly good at 16, though (even if you don't mind the distortion). The Tokina 16-28 is much better there (and in general, except for more problems with flare). It's just that the 16-35 is a heavy beast and I simply haven't much taken to it. It is, of course, a lot better than the older 18-35 (which I had; it's main good point was its weight ) I have a new 18-35 on order, and I will be taking comparison shots from 18mm on between that and the 16-35.
