I was referring to the 16-35mm f4 vr and the 17-35mm f2.8 which were the other two I considered.

The 14-24mm I'm sure more than justifies the cost With an extra 4mm of reach and tack sharp.

This was one of the articles that helped me decide.

sorry, did not know the 17-35mm was still new for sale...

It is not made any more. I've used the lens in the past myself, when I sold it I used the money to purchase the 14-24mm. The 17-35mm is a very good lens, but wide open the 14-24mm is absolutely ahead by means of image quality.
