I love both lenses, but would you keep the 14-24 f2.8 or 24 f1.4G?

I have both. Every year, I review the number of shots from each lens, and the number of top-rated (by me) photos per lens.

My #1 lens is the 85mm f/1.4 AF-S, followed by the 24mm f/1.4 AF-S. This was quite a surprise to me, as I never thought of myself as a wide angle shooter. The ability of the 24mm to focus really close has resulted in some rather interesting shots.

I have the trinity zooms, and all the f/1.4 primes. But the 85 and 24 are my go-to lenses. While the zooms are more versatile, I'm willing to lose the ability to get every shot in order to get great shots.
