Sounds like photozone not much wow about this lens, especially about price Not even "highly recomended" as 40mm pancake for example.


I still think there is some wow:

for wide landscapes:

24mm f/8 (center, far edge, CA):

24-70 II - 3580 and 3175 and 0.86
24 1.4 II - 3494 and 3104 and 0.82
24 T&S II - 3543 and 3053 and 0.43
24-105 - 3309 and 2891 and 1.4

or for wide open 70mm portraits or f/4 portraits:

70mm f/2.8:
24-70 II: 3343 and 2505 and 0.61
24-70 I: 2775 and 2262 and 0.57

70mm f/4:
24-70 II: 3459 and 2654 and 0.62
24-70 I: 3001 and 2725 and 0.63

(granted the 70mm numbers are a bit weak compared to the 70-200/300Ls, still what standard zoom beats them?)
(and yeah the primes easily beat it at the far corners, but far corners aren't THAT critical for landscapes compared to center, mid or far edges and just a touch of crop and far corners are partly or all gone too)


I mean for crying out loud it does better than any 24-70ish type zoom and even outsharps fabled primes at 24mm at some apertures and yet it didn't do well?
