I have tried a number of UWA lenses both on DX and FX, Tokina 12-24, 11-16, Nikon 12-24, Sigma 10-20, Sigma 12-24 and Rokinon 14. My favorites were the Tokina 11-16 on DX and the Rokinon 14 on FX.
Now I sold my Sigma 12-24 which served me good, however, it wasn't as sharp as I liked and it was very prone to flare. Now I am on the look for an UWA for my D600. Of course the 14-24 comes as a first option and I always heard how great of a lens it is. But I just wanted to know how much better it is compared to the Nikon 16-35 and the Tokina 16-28 2.8. I know the extra 2mm on the wide end makes a difference but my main concern now is only optical differences, sharpness, color, distortion, vignetting, etc... The price difference between the 16-35 and the 14-24 isn't astronomical. However, it is to me etween the 14-24 and the Tokina.
Filters are not an issue since I have a solution for that. I will use it mainly for night landscape and architecture. Another thing, for those who have a 16-35 f/4, how well does the perform as a general walkaround lens? How does it compare to other primes in the 24-35 range?
