This may get moved to the lens forum, but it's in relation to the D800. I'm trying to round out my lens lineup for my D800 and the wide angle lens category is killing me. Nikon's 14-24 is the creme de la creme in terms of resolution and distortion control but can't mount filters. The Nikon 16-35 f/4 seems like a worthy alternative since it has a 77mm filter mount but the reviews are less than stellar for a $1500 lens. Then there are the third party FX wide angle options that all seem like compromises (can't mount filters, poor corner resolution, etc). So what in the world are you guys using for wide angle landscape photography on your D800s? For now I'm getting by with my Sigma 10-20 (a DX lens) and just cropping the vignette out. It probably gets me down to 8mm as a side benefit, but I'm sure it's far from performing well compared to these other options.
