I am considering buying one of these lenses. I much prefer the feel and perceived1 build quality2 of the 17-35mm Nikkor compared to the 16-35mm, but I also want the widest field of view. At infinity, 17mm vs 16mm is significant (to me), but I plan to do focus stacking so I will lose some field of view. Last I held the 16-35mm in my hand I recall it experienced significant focus breathing, though I did not measure it, as I didn't care about it then, but I don't know how bad it is compared to the 17-35mm.
Does anyone know the minimum field of view of these two lenses, measured as focus is racked from near to far?
 I am perfectly aware that perceived build quality doesn't necessarily map to actual durability or reliability.
 I am also perfectly aware that the 17-35mm is an older design that measures worse in optical tests. This is of no concern to me at the apertures I am using.
