I've recently become very interested in street photography. I've come to the realization that my 17-40mm f/4L, 40mm f/2.8 STM, and 50mm f/1.4 USM are not suitable for this type of photography on APS-C sensors. The 17-40 is just too large of a lens and the 40mm and 50mm are too cropped in. I've decided that I want a fast wide-angle prime. Sure, 24mm and 28mm aren't wide angle per se on APS-C sensors, but with full frame in my future, one of them seems like a good investment.
Now, I've decided to get one of these Canon primes with IS because I have a physical deformity that hinders stabilization on my part. But I'm stuck deciding between the two focal lengths. I've run some tests at 24mm and 28mm with my 17-40, but I can't make up my mind. With street photography becoming something I want to experiment with more, which lens would you all recommend? Do any of you have experience with these new IS primes?
Thanks for your help!

You do realise, that f/4 on FF is still thinner DoF than f/2.8 on APS-C, right?
It's not without its stellar performance reputation and extremely consistent build quality that the EF 70-200 f/2.8isII has found it's way into just about every Canon professional's bag on the planet. From this point it's frequently stated as being a "most-used" lens. So what's happening for you?
There is a chance that it is a very rare poor copy, it's in serious need of AFMA adjustment, there is comprehensive user-error or the unlikelihood of you being a malicious troll. I doubt this is the case!
Read up on AFMA (auto focus micro adjustment in case you were unsure) and do the adjustments as a start point.
This tends not to be a lens that disappoints. If you bought second hand, there are the occasional copies that have been dropped/damaged and badly repaired, then dumped into the hands of a trusting, unsuspecting buyer. As with anything pre-owned, YMMV.
