Yep - made the calculation before coffee.

Truman, can you show how you actually do the calculation for the number of stops between on value and the other?   For example what is the number of stops' difference between 2.2 and 2.8?  Between 1.8 and 4.8?

I did try a 24-70 - too heavy, to obvious for the focal length and did get me anything I could not get with my 35-70 f2/8 AFD so I sold it. It doesn't really buy me much I can't get from my 50 and if I need a wide angle I usually know it in advance before I go out and my 24 works fine.

I'm considering selling my 24-70 and going with with two or three primes for some of the reasons you mention no to mention IQ too.  Do you usually carry one or the other or do you only take one knowing in advance what you'll be shooting?  If you carry two do you just change them quickly in the field?

Did you still feel much-more expensive 24mm over the relatively economical 28mm was the right move?

regards, David
