Re: 14mm or wait for the 16mm?

If the 16/1.4 has pronounced barrel distortion, as most high-speed, very wide angles do, then by the time software correction is in place, the effective focal length(based on the angle of view) might be in the neighborhood of 17 to 18mm.

Personally, I like this because the 18mm F.L. (approx. 28mm on 24x36) is one of my favorites since time immemorial.

The 14mm requires no software correction, and thus loses none of it's angle of view in post.
