    Compared to the newer and cheaper 18-35mm f3.5-4.5, does the 14-24mm still triumph in terms of IQ and sharpness?

    Don't know. Haven't used the 18-35mm before. Some are saying that the 16-35mm f/4 is already comparable to the 14-24mm. However, having extra 2mm at the wider end already worth its weight in gold if you need it.

    The DXO Mark also looks at other brands - more fair perhaps.

    ( Nikon's is just to convince you to spend more on there product and also says that 3/4 of their lens product is no good for THIER OWN CAMERA ! )
