This strikes me as a statement from someone who had never tried the 16-28? Its really remarkable. I've been a long time renter for the 14-24, and The Experience is identical. Its easily as sharp, feels similarly as tank-like, and even has the frustrating but oh so characterful bulbous front element.
If your picking between the two you really have to try them out to give a fair comparison, don't brush this one off as a typical 'third party zoom'
I suggest your reserve your opinion for matters on which you have experience.

I recently picked up my Tokina 16-28mm. I rented a Nikon 14-24mm and while price is indeed that major factor. The Tokina is for me a lens that satisfies my uwa needs and is a wonderful pairing with Nikon in both for build quality and for IQ.

Here is a decent review of the Tokina 16-28:
