    The canon ef 35mm f1.4 was close to perfection on the 5D MKII, both in terms of performance and the focal length (30mm would have been perfect) It worked quite well as a walk around lens. I expect the same performance with the nikkor on the d700.

    I like the 16-35 because it replaces both the sigma 12-24 and nikkor 24-70 in my bag when I go to trackdays/outdoor events. Good things are VR, and beeing noticeably sharper than the sigma (it's also a bit sharper than the 70-300 VR). Bad things are that it's a bit softer than the 24-70, and the extreme corners isn't something to cheer about. You also get flares easily, so you have to be carefull shooting in bright light, and it's not exactly distortion free. Optically the 14-24 f2.8 beats it, except the 14-24 is even worse at flaring. I rate the 16-35 more practical in use than the 14-24, because the 14-24 is "just" (ultra) wide angle - while the 16-35 gives you that little bit extra by going out to 35mm (and I love VR)

    Photozone.de review of the 16-35 is the one I've found to be most true to how I feel about the lens myself.

    And I'm with you on not liking using the 24-70. There's something about it that doesn't feel right. But it performs like a champ.

    If we are going to have an ongoing lens discussion shouldn't it have it's own thread?

    yeah the 35L and 135L were 2 of my favourite lens'. Nikon should have the 35 coverered and the 85G nails the 85L. the only thing we're missing now is the superb 135L. the only issue i think we'll have is that the 135L is built for speed, teh 135DC is built for portraits; so i certianly hope nikon dont continue the DC route and cripple the lens with piss poor AF.

    thanks for the heads up, sounds like an UWA version of the 24-120/4. not up to the quality of the 24-70, but a very good performer. the only thing that irks me is the size of the bastard.

    And I'm with you on not liking using the 24-70. There's something about it that doesn't feel right. But it performs like a champ.
    havent found anything that performs like it yet in a zoom. but i really dont like using it and its not just the size and weight cos the 14-24 weighs the same, but the 14-24 feels perfect on the camera, the 24-70 always feels unfomfortable to me. and hell, if i wanted to feel uncomfortable and awkward i may as well shoot Canon.

    What I found myself always hating about the 24-70 was that the lens extended when zooming out to 24mm. That bugged me every single time I used it. It might be the one thing that made me sell it

    And we should have an own thread for gear porn. Just pictures and discussions about our gear. Unboxing new stuff, oogling old stuff

    Speaking of 16-35...
