If you really want to check, rent a 24mm for a weekend and use both next to each other. In today's era of computer aided design for zooms, and very effective coatings kit zooms can be sold inexpensively and be quite excellent lenses. The areas where differences stand out aren't usually sharpness, especially in the center.

Haha, i wish i can do that. One of the perk living in New Zealand is that being so isolated that any expensive item are most likely not in stock and retails price for Zeiss 24mm is like 40% more expensive than buying off over sea ($1800 in NZD = $1495 USD). so i have to be very careful on buying something that I don't regret too.
