It is a fine lens, of course, if you need such a thing.

I'm using this lens on one of my assignments on a daily basis.
It is outstanding lens and I'm very happy with it. I wish I had a TS-E24 but for now I'm very happy with my EF 24L

Have 24 II, as well as 16-35 and 24-105. Definitely superior to the zooms.

It's my choice for wide-angle shots with the 5D2 and 5D3. Don't have the

35 L.

Very good.
Much better than the 24-105 and such whether at f/2.8 or f/4 or f/10.

That said, the new 24-70 II has had people posting some pretty amazing samples at 24mm, edge to edge I think the 24 1.4 II still beats the f/2.8 samples I've seen and maybe the f/4 ones but....

The edges are messyish until f/2.8 and not 100% really great until f/3.5 or f/4, center and midframe are very good even at f/1.4, edges are pretty bad there and corners are worse but not many care about 24mm corners at f/1.4, for most shots I don't that matters at 1.4, edges usually aren't super crucial at 1.4 either.

On FF it was really the only way to get a general purpose lens (with AF) that was great edge to edge and wide. With the new 24 2.8 IS and 24-70 II that may have changed.

One of my most used lenses. 70-300L, 24 1.4 II, 300 2.8 IS and 100 macro are my most used lenses by far.

I wouldn't pee on it if it was on fire.
