Photography Life Review Summary: Overall, I have been extremely pleased with this lens. Although I would still not hesitate to recommend this lens for those who are looking for a premium workhorse 24mm f/1.4 lens, there are now a number of great alternatives that are worth looking into. For example, the smaller and lighter Nikon 24mm f/1.8G is an excellent value, despite the fact that it is not as good as its bigger brother in the corners. And if you are looking for a lens with the best center performance, the Sigma 24mm f/1.4 Art is truly phenomenal, as demonstrated on the previous page of this review.
