Slightly more to the point: :-)

Note that this is from an avowed Nikon fanboy. His review is however 
very much in line with what I experienced. The Nikon 14/2.8 is 
'sharper' than the Canon 14 (older one) but has more distortion. The 
distortion is a lot greater than that which the older 15/3.5 Nikkor 
produces, but in other regards the 14 is better.

The Sigma 14 has slightly less distortion, and the Tamron 14 has a 
bit more. As noted before, the 12-24 Sigma zoom has a lot less than 
any of the 14's, but is of course a lot slower and not quite as sharp 
as the Nikon.
