Which wide angle - 14-24mm, Zeiss 21mm ZF2, or 24mm f/1.4?

A question for the landscape photographers using the D800/D800E. If you could start over and choose just one wide angle lens for landscape from the above three, which would you choose?

Please take into account you want the best photo quality, but also that you will hike with it ten to fifteen miles sometimes.

For me:

Minimal chromatic aberrations is a plus.

Flare can be a pain.

Distortion is easier to deal with, I think.

Lack of ability to polarise isn't an issue for me at this focal length.

Lack of ability to use ND Grads seem to be less of a problem to me with the D800 as dynamic range is pretty good anyway.

Thanks for your thoughts.
