Re: May I ask what ultra wide ZL lens did Nikon have prior to the 14-24mm and how did it

fair against the competition and itself?

It had the 17-35mm f/2.8, while not ultra wide, was much better than the Canon 16-35mm f/2.8 L I. Canon has never had a decent wide zoom until the current 16-35, and it is really no better than the much older 17-35. Heck, the Canon 14mm prime isn't as good as the 14-24mm, and it's more expensive.
