I read the 16-35 was sharper, is that not your experience?

Aren't you also paying for the extra two mm? And the fixed aperture? Not that it's a huge difference.

No, my experience that the two are about equal in the center of the frame but the 18-35 is sharper in the corners. 2mm can be significant depending on your needs; the variable aperture (3.5-4.5) is, for all practical purposes, the same as a constant f4.

Given that I have no need of VR, it made no sense for me to spend the extra money on features that are irrelevant to me and end up with poorer image quality in the bargain.

After more research I think the 18-35 is on the top of my list now for a wide lens. Appreciate the recommendation. How would you say it fairs as an everyday lens? Is it too wide, even the last 28-35mm? Too distorted? Do you use it only for landscape maybe?
