I would really like to take advantage of the current discounts on both of these lenses but not having had my hands on either one I find it difficult to choose.. I like fast glass.. both lenses seem to be very good in all respects... but I'm not sure I can justify buying both at this time.

These two cost about the same amount of money so that is not an issue.

I rarely ask for others to help me make a decision but in this case I am going to do so.

If you have the time, please list the reasons you would buy one or the other... thanks! I look forward to your input and your help in keeping me from buying both due to GAS.

The ability to 'see' the shot is more important than the gear used to capture it.

I would not buy either. I'd wait for the 16-55 mm 2.8. The if you need a wider angle lens get the 10-24 zoom.

Unless your stuck on getting prime lens they are could not be further in focal length or perspective.

Certainly food for thought.  The 14 would be about as wide as I would want to go so not sure the 10-24 would give me what I want.. but it would certainly be more versatile.. will it be constant aperture?
