Just picked up a brand new 24L ii for $1,350. I'm starting to think I shouldn't of went this wide.
First of let me start off with what I shoot. Automotive photography is what I do. The 135L is my sniper and that's almost 85% of my on-location lens. I do occasionally attend events/car shows which is the "prime" reason I got this lens. I am disappointed in the fact that 24mm is almost too wide for me. The distortion isn't much from afar, but the closer you get, the more you want to back up. I just started testing waters in portraiture, and this lens is the absolute last piece of glass I should be using for that type of work.
Also, I can honestly say I haven't seen the value of (retail) $1,500 in this lens. The image quality is great, but for some reason the lens doesn't POP like I'd expect it to.
My question to you guys: Should I sell for the same price I payed, and look into the Sigma 35mm? I'm not interested in the Canon model as of right now. I've seen plenty of comparisons and the Sigma wins my vote. I'd put the left over money into some other piece of glass, or maybe even a 600EX-RT.
Thanks a lot in advance for the feedback.
