My concern with this lens was not on the long end but on the short ens, it has worse distortion at 16mm than the 14-24 at 14, wider open or stop down it never reach the same performance level as the 14-24, especially the corner there is a pretty obvious difference.

The difference in distortion you mention is less than 10% - not enough to be visible in a typical shot and in both cases would need to be corrected to achieve straight lines in a critical scene. Your concerns on that front are unfounded.
