Re: Nikon 16-35 vs 24 1.4?

I also like to shoot people, kids mostly I'd say - indoor & out.

For outdoor I'm well covered with the Sigi 50/1.4 & the Nikon 85/1.4D that is my favorite lens. Sure I have some zoom lens but I like using primes much better.

Though I do have some cheap wide zoom (Tokina 19-35) I felt I'd like some faster & better optics. Considered going for the Nikon 16-35VR - but it's just not fast enough and VR doesn't help much when there are kids around....

24/1.4G is a superb & for sure I'll own one some day - but for people it's just too wide (had the Nikon 24/2.8D so I'm familiar with that FL). I tried the Nikon 28/1.8G for some period & it's one great lens trust me - really liked it - great for people & landscape (although a bit narrow for that, but I'm not a landscape kind of guy....) but at the end I couldn't resist the Sigma 35/1.4.

Mine would get here next week, can't wait.....

Good luck,
