The more I look into this, the more I realize that Canon's wide angle line up is lacking - compared to Nikon.

Not when it comes to flare resistance and sunstar.
14-24 2.8 (which I own), even though sharpness is awesome, is a huge flare monster. you dont even need to have the sun anywhere in your field for it to flare. 16-35II actually fits the bill very well. Samyang 14 does a pretty good jub with flare, though now sure how well with sunsburst.

16-35II at 16, f 7.1. this is the worse flare torture test, with sun in the corner and the lens stopped down some

here is one at 16 and f11, showing the nice sunburst. its even nicer at f16

Excellent examples. The 16-35II's sun burst is SO crisp.

The 17mm TS-E is a flare magnet. :-) Love everything else about this lens, but it's hard to work it outdoors in the sun.

This differs greatly from my experience but YMMV and all that.

14/f2.8 Samyung handles flares pretty well!

You know, there are starburst filters that can be used to good effect, too.

Speaking of filters....

The 16-35mm is the widest that can be fitted with a standard filter. The "Mark I" takes 77mm and the Mark II requires significantly more expensive 82mm.

The 14mm lenses (both the pricey Canon & the inexpensive Samyang/Rokinon/Bower/​etc.), Nikon 14-24, Canon 8-15 and TS-E 17mm all have protruding front elemends and are not designed to be fitted with filters up front. In some cases there are work-arounds... such as filter holders that clamp onto the front of the lens and allow large rectangular filters to be used. All the Canon lenses all can be fitted with gel filers at the rear element, too... not sure about the Nikon, but the Samyang/Rokinon/Bower/​etc. doesn't provide a gel filter holder.

If it MUST be done, ok, but its so cliche now.

yeah, because those 50mm shots are definitely unique.

Only correction is Zeiss 15 takes filters

Zeiss 15 is unfortunately out of budget. Any one have experience with the Zeiss 18 compared to zooms in sharpness, sun star and flare?
