Get the one with the chip. If you search around, you can find it for about the same price (or pretty close). I love this lens! It's sharp, small and often keeps me from having to lug around a 14-24.

Yeah I kind of thought about getting the 14-24 but for the size and price I could get two smaller and lighter primes: the Rokinon (Samyang) 14mm, and the Zeiss 21mm.

Anyway I've already got the AF-S 17-35 2.8 so I see no need for the 14-24 based on what said above.

The other thing is my favorite carrying around all day lens is my older AF-S 24-85 3.5-4.5G non-vr lens for its size and weight.  When I add the Rokinon 14mm and the Zeiss 21mm and I’ll have a trinity of 14mm, 21mm, and my 24-85, which fits my shooting style well.  Should I need anything longer than that, I've got my older 80-200 2.8, which I hardly ever use.
