I do not have any experience with the 24 f/2.8 IS, but I imagine despite all of its qualities, it cannot remotely shoot the night sky as well the 24 f/1.4 II.  For timelapse purposes, I think the same would be true.  This is one of my favorite lenses from Canon.

24 1.4L II by all means. 850 for 24 f/2.8 ?????? Seriously ?  IS or non-IS it's not worth it...

Well, I'm basically into street photography more than anything at the moment and need something light to use with my 5D MK3.
I have a 70-200 F/2.8 II, but that's not a street lens...
I have a 16-35 F/2.8 II and it's way to heavy and bulky for my style :(
I have a 50 F/1.2 and ditto it.
I have a 50 F/1.8 II and it's pretty light but I just bought a shorty forty now and it's pretty damn near perfect, getting my Canon down to the size and weight (almost) of my Fuji X-Pro 1 (I have 18mm F/2 (27mm equivalent) and 35mm F/1.4 (53mm equivalent) and they are perfect.

So I'm looking for something small, light, sharp and relatively fast.
The 28mm F/2.8 IS is reportedly very sharp out to the corners and is a new lens (like the shorty forty) and a good match to the newer 5D MK3 hardware.
Lensrentals says it's pretty darned good...

Thoughts?

So anyone actually owned both and compared them at f/4-f/10, for more landscape type apertures on a FF?

The 24 1.4 II, I know from personal experience, is totally crisp to the edges well stopped down on a 5D2 while say a 24-105L simply is not (the whole all lenses are the same at f/8 is an absolute, utter myth), so what about the new 24 2.8 IS??

I suppose the upcoming 24-70 II might be more flexible than either though.
