Well, that's what I'm wondering. For years I've hoped to buy this lens, but of course that was before the release of the 24/1.4 AF-S & the 35/1.4 AF-S.
Until recently, I owned the 35/1.4AF-S, and though I enjoyed shooting with it, I found it lacked something that I couldn't put my finger on.
It was sharp enough, smooth bokeh, reasonably consistent auto focus, decently controlled CA but I just wasn't "feeling it" I suppose you could say.
Now I'm torn between the 24/1.4 and the 28/1.4.
The reasonable part of me says buy the 24/1.4, but then there's that little part of me that keeps reminding me of the 28/1.4 and the legacy it seems to have.
Lots of the shots I see from the 28/1.4 have an amazing rendering to them that I don't tend to see in newer glass, particularly photos taken in lowlight.
In a way, it reminds me of the 85/1.4 AF-D I used to shoot with, but with a more unique signature.
Also, I'm wondering how much of a difference I would see between the 24mm and 28mm as far as perspective goes.
I'm worried the 24mm might be too wide for environmental portraiture, which is my main interest. I also shoot bar shows and concerts fairly often.
I'd love to hear the imput on someone who's owned either the 24/1.4 & the 28/1.4 or the 35/1.4 & the 28/1.4!
