Rented a 24mm f/1.4 G. Sensational!
This past weekend I rented a 24/1.4 G from Headshots (via Henrys in Canada) and all I can say is that this lens is sensational. Looking back through the 3000+ shots from the day, the images from the 24 have a certain "pop" that makes them really stand out, even when viewed quite small.
Not only is it sharp at wide apertures, the flare control is really something.
Here's a shot at f/2.5, ISO 800 with the D7000. Look at the complete lack of flare and ghosting from the lights.
