Hi Tom

I have the 14-24 for the Nikon D800 and it is a very wonderful lens. Here a couple of blog entries I have written about it with some sample pictures. Coming from the DX world I am not yet that used to having it that wide, so most of my shoots so far is nearer 24mm:

And I have found a great deal of articles about the two lenses that might help you in your decision:

I haven't tried the 16-35 but if I were in your situation I would go for the 14-24. To much overlap when you already have the 24-70.

Thank you for the image that inspired Hans Christian Andersen!  I enjoyed your other images, as well.  But they appear to be not in focus and overly sharpened.  Almost as though they were taken with a P&S camera, and not of a quality in keeping with a 36MP FX sensor and the 14-24G.
