24mm sucks as a general walk-around lens IMO and not even f/1.0 would save it and for 35mm, f/1.2 would be better. Just too much DoF on a 24mm even wide open unless you are close to mfd and just way to much FoV. Great for landscape, but you don't need f/1.4 for that.
Quite true, but then I've never used the 24/1.4 as a walkabout lens, I've used it when in really low light, at higher ISO and when I'm up close. There have been plenty of times when I've needed the 24 or 35 @ 1.4 and still been pushing ISO2000-4000. No chance of adding extra light in some situations either.
For 'walkabout' I have the 24-105L, but that would suck big time in close quarters and really low light.
So, no, 24 / 35 @ 1.4 is not a waste, in fact I rarely use them above f2.0.
