I wonder how many of those are positive helpful posts?
The one issues that DOES worry me about that 14-24, not the 24-70, is flair. It seems like the lens hood is just not adequate and the way the lens protrudes out is problematic. After all this is not a lens you use in the studio for the most part. Is there some way of constructing a workable lens shade that doesn't vignette? Outdoors you are going to run into some really awkward situations with that flair compromising tonality and color clarity it seems.
How do you guys deal with that? I hope I'm not forced into the Zeiss 21 prime. Although I wouldn't cry about making that decision. There are certainly great points about it too. Still that 14-24 range is fantastic.
I usually go out shooting with a straw cowboy hat, makes a great lens shade
That possibly says it all!! Sounds a bit like an anti-zoom extremist.
For someone who shows:
then perhaps that also tells a story. Are you going to take lens advice from someone who perhaps spends far more time on internet chat rooms like this than actually out in the wilds taking photographs?
