thanks for the comparison. No surprises here.
as someone who has extensively used the nikon 14-24 on my 5d2 and 5d3, and also briefly on a d600,
Its a flare monster, and takes no filters. other than that, its an exceptional lens. However, I find my 16-35II more versatile, though not as spectacular b/c of the 2 mentioned reasons.
The DR difference, I found useful when shooting in to the sun. It essentially took away need for a 2 stop bracketting, or using a 2 stop gnd (this is d600 compared to 5d3).
B/c I use my canon for more than just landscape (family with fast primes, etc) I have shied away from d800, secondary to the focus issues it has had. It is still very inviting. I have also read from multiple sources that the live view leaves much to desire for landscape shooting. otherwise, it would be a perfect camera for me, not only for large landscape prints, but also b/c of high pixel density, for wildlife shooting.
