Decisions, Decisions: 10-24mm zoom or 14mm prime
9 months ago

I pre-ordered the 10-24mm zoom which is expected in April.  With the current sale offering of $699 for the 14mm, that's a $300 differential.  The zoom gives me more versatility, while the 14mm will most likely provide better IQ and is faster but has a significantly smaller FOV (89 degrees vs 110 degrees).  Size/weight is really not a factor for me so I'm not concerned the zoom is significantly larger.  I like the options that zooms provide but I'm very impressed with pictures I've seen coming from the 14mm.  I'm really trying to hone my photographic skills so I will be using the lens (along with the others I own) on a variety of subjects.  I think of myself as a utility photographer, not a specialist.

Thoughts anyone?

Thanks in advance!
