For me, it comes down to these factors:

1.)  Walking through the woods, all it takes is for a branch to snap back or for me to fail to see something sticking out, and suddenly you wish you had a filter on the lens.  A lens with a lens cap on it all the time is a paperweight.  Offsetting its ability to take a filter, the 16-35's length makes it more likely to bump into something when walking through the forest.  I've done it already.

2.)  VR is a real advantage shooting handheld in low light.

The dilemma is real.  One lens specializes in the 14-20mm range, the other in the 18-28mm range.  One can go to f/2.8, the other has VR.  Neither does both.
