In reply to incrediblehark, 2 months ago

It's been a while since I updated you guys about my purchase.  Because of the issues I had with my Zeiss 21mm lens when I first purchased it, I was able to exchange it for the 14-24.

The Zeiss went back to the manufacturer and was tested by several engineers.  They first accused me (or someone at the store) of dropping the lens, but before we could argue, Zeiss changed their minds and quickly stated that the error was theirs and the lens left their facility that way. So obviously they keep their test shots taken during quality control....

It's been a few months since getting my hands on the 14-24.  This is an outstanding lens with very high IQ.  It took me a while to figure it out, but it's amazing to use once you learn the basics of shooting with it.  I am very happy with my purchase.

I am currently saving for the Zeiss 21mm.  In the meantime, I'll be keeping my eye on the new Nikon 20mm f1.8G rumored to be appearing sometime soon.  If that lens is a winner, and is at a decent price point, I'll definitely be considering that as well.

Cheers
