14-24 or 24-70 ?
Feb 4, 2013

Hello folks 

Presently I own the Nikon16-85, 70-300, 35 1.8. Recently I decided to upgrade my lenses and add the 70-200 2.8 VRII. Now I have the chance to by at good price from a friend of mine the 14-24 2.8 or the 24-70 2.8 in mint conditions. The truth is that I would be happier with a 17-55, but I don’t want to be limited to DX and now I have only these two choices.

Honestly one day I would like to have covered all those ranges, but now is difficult for me to decide which one to keep right now, because I like both but in same time both have things, which I dislike.

14-24 has a flare problem and is difficult to install a circular polarizer on it, which I like to use.

24-70 is the softest from the trinity and use to have a barrel issue. I’m also concerned about the updating of these lenses right after I by them. A VR on the 24-70 could help to photography my two young boys.

Please help to make my decision.

Thanks in advance,
