You will seldom use the 14-24 at 2.8 other than astro, so its weight and size are a waste most of the time. Better get two lenses each that will do a great job at their purpose, and at a lower cost. Right now the 14-30/20 combo is $2,050; the 14-24 is $2,400.

Regarding weight - I know it's old news for some, but in 14-XX mm land, the f/2.8 is only about 170 g (30% or so) heavier than the f/4.
