Nikon 24 f/1.4

After enjoying a Nikon 28 f/1.4 for quite a while, I just recieved the new Nikon 24 f/1.4.

I must admit that I personally like the crinkle finish of the older 28 f/1.4, 85 f/1.4, 135 f/2 and 180 f/2.8 better than the finish on this new 24 and the 28 is smaller in size, but after that, the 24 is far and away better at everything the 28 ever did. It's very sharp even wide-open, better contrast, color, fast-quiet focusing and accurate too. I have read about problems with earlier 24's not focusing accurately?, but no problems here.

It was a toss-up between the 35 or the 24 f/1.4, but decided on the 24 since I liked the 28 before. Plus, it'll be almost like a 35mm on the D300 besides a 24mm on the D700. I haven't tried it on the D300 as yet, but I'm sure enjoying it on the D700.
