Pros: Takes standard 77mm filters, good balance with D800, weight, not sharpest but good all-rounder, VR
Cons:
Weakest at 35mm

Coming from the 10-24mm in DX, this 16-35 has a better performance on the full range. Hesitated for months with the 14-24, but the issue with filters got me this one. Now I can pile up polarizer with ND grad regularly without much penalty on vignetting.

I wish it was sharper, crispier especially at 35mm, but then it's really a professional lens that will gives perfect result anyway on post. Just take time to sharpen a tad more. Also VR can help, but it's a lens i mostly use with a tripod.
