Does the 24 1.4G make sense since I have the 35 1.4G and 24PCE

Hi,

I always thought that I don't need the Nikon 24 1.4G since I have the 35 1.4G which I generally prefer from the focal length due to better Isolation. But I tried the 24 1.4G today and the lens was stunning. So much better at 1.4 compared to the 35. The bokeh was also very beautiful.

I use the 35 1.4 a lot but often the focus misses and the pictures are not that sharp. From what I have seen the 24 makes a better job on that.

I am asking because a camera store has a Like New 24 1.4G used for sale. The price is nice

Should I buy it or will I regret it. I am shooting mostly landscapes but more and more models and weddings. Especially for weddings it seems to be the one lens to have when combined with the 85G.

If money would be not an issue I would buy it. I have the spare money but don't know if I should invest it in this lens or save it for the coming Sigma 50 1.4 Art lens.

Or I sell the 35 1.4G and buy the Sigma 35 1.4G and focus using the 24 1.4G
