    Would anyone have experience with both in good light? Is it worth the price difference?

    These are lenses that play different roles. 14-150 is an extensive, versatile focal range suitable for a vacationing photographer who values convenience and simple carry above all else. 35-100 is a fast zoom lens that a photojournalist values for low-light capability, versatility, and image quality within the limited focal range it is designed for. If getting the shot in that range is important to a photographer's bread and butter come what may, it is worth its price difference.

    Any lens would work great in good light. People pay the premium for the 35-100/2.8 because it would also work great in not so good light.

    The focal lengths are obviously different. 14-150 may be softer past 100 mm but 35-100 doesn't go past 100 mm.
