16-35 or? Help with wide choices please.

Hi folks,

Asking for a little help here re wide lens.

I am using a D700 and will be buying a D800 when the user results / reviews are out.

I currently have a 24-70 / 70-200 / 28-300 / 50 1.8 but I am in the market for something wider.

Not sure I want the size, weight of the 14-24 despite it being the best out there. Was looking at the 16-35 VR. Price is ok and users seem happy with this lens so it's high on the list at the moment. Just wondered if there is anything out there I should look at from other Companies?

If I did get the 14-24 I would have the holy trinity but not sure of the range, size and bulbous front element, no filters. Maybe the 16-35 VR is the better fit for me? Or something else?

Thanks for your help guys.
