From a purely photographic standpoint - I'm all over the 24L.
The only reason I've brought the newer 24mm into discussion is because of the improved MTF curves and IS. The MTF data instills a confidence in me that, outside of wide open ability, the newer 24mm will hold it's own to the 24L photographically. The IS functionality causes me to pause when considering these two lenses with respect to video.
Thanks to previous comments in this thread, IS seems less of a benefit thus making the faster 24L a front runner with respect to my needs.
Again, if anyone has any other points of consideration/support for the newer 24mm 2.8 IS - please share!
Thanks again all
