Did you consider Batis 25 instead 16-35? Anything wider than 25mm is a "specialty look" in my opinion, and for that rare situation, the Voigtlander 15mm III appears to be the way to go. I myself am still in the thinking/choosing/wanting/ thinking-some-more stage.

Also, the Nikon 14-24 is very very attractive (except for size and weight), but if I were to routinely go below 25mm, I probably would choose the Nikon.

I don't think I would get much use out of the 25mm.  It's a brilliant lens, I'm sure, but I typically like to go wider.  The 14-24 is a great lens, but it is massive.  I just would not carry it around.  I try to keep my kit small, light and versatile, so the 16-35 is useful in that respect.
