Sharpest 24mm prime to go on a D610

Re: The answer isn't a prime...

The 14-24 is amazingly good, but it has definite drawbacks as a travel lens. It really takes up a lot of space in a bag, the lens cap is ... difficult to deal with in the field, flare comes out of nowhere at times, and of course there is the filter thing.

I took it out of my backpack in favor of the 16-35. When I travel, I switch to a waist bag, and the 14-24 just doesn't fit. It's hard to imaging many small bags that would hold it, along with a couple of more useful lenses.  A couple of times in Europe I wished for the extra width though.

Some 14-24 flare examples here:
