it's easy to believe that being usable at f/1.4 was the design goal for which anything else could be sacrificed.

I agree with you regarding the FDn 24mm f1.4L. It was designed to be usable with high contrast at f1.4 for pros that must get that lowlight wideangle shot.

But overall stopped down, it does not perform as well as the FDn 24mm f2. Even at f2, the FDn 24mm f2 is the better lens.

That said, I would love to own the FDn 24mm f1.4L. Contrast is so important to me. Hard for me to justify though, considering I already have the f2.

It is my understanding that the FDn 24mm f2.8 is a good lens but with low contrast--I think the kit zoom would be about as good so why bother.
