I'm not the OP, but the 24/1.4G always has seemed to be a bit of a problem lens in terms of AF accuracy at those wide open apertures for a lot of people. Unlike when I wrote my replies 9 months ago to this thread, I now own the Zeiss 21 as well as having owned the 24/1.4G for a while now. Both are my very favorite wide angles and there is no way I could or would part with either one, but I use them for landscape use, not street work, so the 24/1.4G's AF tendencies aren't an issue. I view the two lenses as two excellent tools that have different renderings instead of placing one lens as outright better than the other optically. I'd give up the 14-24, 28/1.8, and Sigma 35/1.4 that I own to keep these around, which should tell you something.


Thank you fro your very valuable input, Mike. I am still tossing up whether to get the 24 f1.4G and your comments make it more difficult to resist!
