    Which one will do a good job in term of function, weight, IQ, for indoor and outdoor.

    You define what is 'good job', then go and check the details of each lens to see whether they perform up to your expectations.
    And: lens performance is not depending on indoor or outdoor, climate or weather will not affect the characteristics of glass
    Another point: such generic questions cannot get a clear answer, too many options and variables that can affect the results. Be more specific, please.

    The best part is, you did not even mention which camera you are using... Crop or FF?

    Does not compute.

    On crop these are no longer UWAs.

    Sorry, you are not making any sense.

    16-35 is a UWA for FF camera bodies. On a 1.6x crop sensor camera, it becomes a standard zoom.

    24mm is a wide angle (not ultra) for FF camera bodies. On 1.6x crop sensor camera it becomes a wide normal lens.

    So I have no idea what you want now.
