24 mm vs 16-35 with A850
Mar 8, 2011

I would be thankful if the experienced enthusiasts here can edify me about an issue that I have not been able to grasp clearly.
The issue is:

Suppose for A850 we always use a tripod along with MLU and cable release for our landscape shots. And further we use always F8 (i.e. the sharp aperture setting). Then why should we prefer 24mm distagon to 16-35 when the setting of 24mm on 16-35 would give be equal if not better performance. I think 16-35 gives less distortion at 24mm but perhaps CA is more pronounced here. Let us also assume that price difference is not a factor.

In case the performance with the tripod (when heavy weight of the lens is not an issue) of both the lenses is identical at 24mm, then why not have 16-35 instead with its long range?
Thanks and regards
Arun
