No question about it, the 14-24 and 24-70 are the best of the best. These are the latest and greatest designs topped off with nano coating. Lens, cameras....just keep getting better and better and I would expect at some point to see replacements for the current Nikon 12-24Dx. Of course the 14-24 is 2x the price so it better be better

...There's another element that should be mentioned, which is that the FX sensor does exhibit better dynamic range..

True. But this of course has little to do with the wide angle (I know you know this but I am just trying to stick with the posted theme). However, the extra stop of so of dynamic range is only realized in contrasty captures where the histogram on a DX sensor is spread from 0 - 255.

Nobody (that I know of) is saying WA isn't possible on DX, only that it is better on FX.

I started this thread to address the comments that I have read which state something like, "now I can finally shoot wide again" You never couldn't but you needed a wider lens
