I've been told to avoid the 14-24 because of the outer element.  The 16-35 was recommended an I'll consider it but I'm really wondering about a wide lens.  I absolutely love my Sigma 10-20 but of course, it's not FX!

Not sure what's wrong with the outer element of the 14-24? I got 14-24 since the original release, 5-6 years ago or so. It's still working perfectly today.

I also got D800E and 16-35, and for UWA shots I almost always choose 14-24: it's much better at @16mm than 16-35 is, and naturally infinitely better at @14-15mm than 16-35

I guess I didn't clearly articulate what I meant by the outer element.  Because of the shape of the outer element on the 14-24, it can be tough to deal with filters.  A pro friend of mine recommended the 16-35 and I'm considering it too... I just wish that my 10-20 would work on FX.  I love that little lens!
