I have a 16-35 2.8 L USM (Mark1), and I LOVE it.
I actually do prefer a zoom, and I frefer f/2.8 (for night shots), and such.
The copy I have is really sharp in my opinion up until around 28mm, and gets less sharp between 28-35mm, but I use it mostly between 16-28 anyway.
On the other hand, you can never go Wide enough, so a 14mm f/2.8 is a nice lens, but aggain lacks the versatility of a zoom.
I've been shooting 14 for a few years now, before that, had a 17-35 and generally happy, but exactly like you said, you can never go wide enough....
14 on one body, and 24-xxx on another body. I find that I'm ok missing the range in between. 16-35 F4IS is incredibly sharp and more of a one lens solution, but how long would I be able to give up that 14 before yearning for it again..........
I could just buy a 16-35 since it's in the budget, but I really dislike carrying both the 14 and 16-35 around, one definitely just sits around. I also have the 17 TSE sitting around for the past few months, but reluctant to use it around water.
