Is there a 'brilliant' wide angle zoom for DX

Hi all

Been thoroughly spoilt by FX wide angles on D700 and D3s using 14-24 and 28-70 F.2.8

Have a D5100 and cannot get even close to that punch with FX. Use the 16-85... Had used a Nikon 17-55 before and was good but very expensive.... is there an equivalent non Nikon out there with similar range that gives near 17-55 IQ or better?

Really like the size if the D5100 and sold the d700 for the need of some portability - chose it over the Sony nex 5 - just need a tack sharp lens.

Please can you advice any suggestions/comments. Thank you
