    Cons: Price Serious coma issues Can focus shift, but at this width that's not so serious

    Pros: In poor light. nothing really competes with this lens at this width on f-mount. It's this, or it's nothing. Does handle wide apertures pretty well.

    Summary: If you need performance at f/2, get it. If you can live with f/4, one of the pro-quality zooms (Tokina 16-28; Nikon 14-24) is less expensive and will do just as well.

    Cons: disturbing focus shift... this is clearly the biggest problem with that lens, which is otherwise incredible. Focus shift makes AF-tune useless

    Pros: amazing contrast, sharpness, bokeh. No problem with flares, unlike the 14-24

    Summary: an incredible lens, but suffers badly from focus shift, which is unacceptable at that price level.

    Cons: Price. 1800 euros, really. Oww, hurts.

    Pros: Optical quality at all apertures (sharpness, colour rendition, bokeh, resistance to flare). Lightweight. Perfect for night lanscapes and astrophotography. Really good on DX for pet photos.

    Summary: The most awesome focal length for FX landscapes, and the next most awesome on DX (1.5x 24mm =36mm) . I doubt anything better will be made in the next 50 years.

    Cons: pricey but worth it

    Pros: sharp wide open, nice bokeh, close focus

    Summary: It's as sharp at f/1.4 as my 17-35 is at f/5.6! And the bokeh is excellent for such a wide angle optic. The AF is almost completely inaudible, and although not as fast as my f/2.8 zooms', it makes up for it in focus accuracy. Bottom line, if you're a Nikon shooter, there's no other lens that can do what this 24mm does at this time. It's great for environmental portraiture, and a creative asset in the right hands. It's definitely NOT great for brick wall shooter types, or geeky measurebators.

    Cons: Corner resolution compared to Canon 24 1.4L II, price, build is not so solid.

    Pros: Bokeh, good center image quality

    Summary: Here's a direct comparison of the Canon 24 1.4L II against the 24 1.4G (both on a 5D Mk II): http://www.flickr.com/photos/genotypewriter/4698284415/ The price of this lens is way too much considering its performance relative to the Canon equivalent. I would have expected at most equal pricing. More details in the above link.
