I was ALMOST buying the 24-70 mkii. But then, in the last minute, i decided to go prime.
I just bought a Sigma 35mm f1.4 and a 135L.
I will give myself 6 months to get used to this focal lengths. If it doesn't work, I'll sell them and get the zoom.
Thank you for all advices!
I have all three lenses - 24-105mm, 24-70mm II, 24mm 1.4 II. The series II are similar but 24mm prime seems to me to be sharper.
If I remember correctly, you are based in India (same as I am).
Choosing between these two lenses is extremely difficult because both are stellar lenses. You need to identify how you like your shots and whether you are willing to change lenses on the go.
Do you intend to buy the lens in India?
I got the 24mm TS-E II and I never regretted it. It doubles for architectural and landscape photography and it is very sharp.
I do not find the manual focus a problem. But of course, I do not use it for street photography.
Have you considered the new 24mm TSE?
I think I'll be adding the 24 2.8 IS to my collection next for use on a crop body, my main reasons being the compact size and low weight, the low light handholdability and the ~40mm equivalent focal length, good as a walkaround lens.
No wiggle at all on my 7D.
