Personally, I think the Nikon 24 f/2.8 AFD is one of the most underated lenses Nikon makes. I think it is simply superb, especially a little past f/2.8. I think it rivals anything out there at f/5.6 including your 24 f/1.4. It's a killer lens for the price, without a doubt.

Go to SLGear and look at the Nikon 24 f/2.8 and click on the FX graph and slide the sliders around. Even at f/2.8 the generous central area is tack sharp. The corners clean up quite a bit by f/4 and it's beautiful by f/5.6. The large central area never suffers. I don't think there's a better choice, especially for the low price they sell for.
