I haven't compared them both, but I have been using the 16-35 on my D800E, and find that it works very well. I especially like the VR. It helps in low light, small aperture situations such as I posted here:

I'm waiting for a D800 (who isn't?), and wondering if I need to replace my old, faithful 17-35 f2.8 with the 16-36 f4 VR, which Nikon has on their list of recommended sharpest lenses for D800E in the D800/E technical guide. Anyone compared the 2 on a D800 or D800E?
