Torn between these two lenses ? The 14-24 f2.8 is an awesome pc of glass but am afraid a bit too wide for general purpose.
The 17-35 is a more practical lens but the optics of the 14-24 from what i read seems better.
I did try a 14-24 with a D3 and the images were just awesome.
My other lens outfit would probably be a 24-70 f2.8 or a combo of 50 1.4 and 85 1.4. Time will tell.
But for scenery shots, street scenes or other scenes requiring a wide, what's the better choice ? I know i can't have both. Perhaps some experiences from this forum will make my decision easier.
For now am for the 14-24 but my experience is limited.
Care to vote ??
