"16-35mm Availability"

Since upgrading to a D800 I have been looking to replace my older 18-35 with the 16 - 35. The older lens was fine with my F100 and acceptable with my D700 but the lack of sharpness on the older lens is more evident with the D800.

I have been looking at B&H as well as a number of other sites. Nobody has stock. The new 18-35 is reportedly sharper than its predecessor, but I would rather not compromise if it is only a matter of a few months wait. Here in Switzerland they are telling me that is may be 6 months.

I have not read rumours of a replacement (although there is a patent application in the works).

Should I give up and spend the extra on the 14-24 and 24-70 combination without VR?

My other lenses are AFS 50mm f/1.4G, AFS 85mm f/1.8, 70-200 2.8 VR (first generation) 16 mm fisheye and AF 60mm micro.
