    Bit the bullet and go for the 14-24mmf2.8.

    As if I want to buy for myself, I would choose 14-24 f/2.8, which is more versatile indeed.
    This weekend I just went to City Hall and checked the price there.
    The 2nd hand price for AFD 14mm f/2.8 (in good condition) is about the same with the new AFS 16-35mm f/4 VR.

    The brand new of AFD 14mm f/2.8 would be more expensive than AFS 16-35mm f/4 VR though. But this 14mm f/2.8 lens is a very good alternative if you prefer a non-BIM lens with smaller body than 14-24 f/2.8.

    If you want lighter weight and filter to play with, you may consider the 16-35mm f4 VR.
