24mm f/1.4 samples (brick walls)

Just got my sample (in Japan) last week.
I also own the 58mm f/1.2 noct, and have previously owned the 28mm f/1.4

The dealbreaker for me: Extremely low distortion for a wide angle lens!

(compare these samples to the barrel distortion exhibited by the 28mm f/1.4 AF-D)

The "Nano Crystal Coat" also seems to help control flare:

Another observation: this lens controls coma fairly well wide open, except that instead of being sagittal (as with the Noct and most fast normal lenses, it is longitudinal instead!
