I pre-ordered the 10-24mm zoom which is expected in April. With the current sale offering of $699 for the 14mm, that's a $300 differential. The zoom gives me more versatility, while the 14mm will most likely provide better IQ and is faster but has a significantly smaller FOV (89 degrees vs 110 degrees). Size/weight is really not a factor for me so I'm not concerned the zoom is significantly larger. I like the options that zooms provide but I'm very impressed with pictures I've seen coming from the 14mm. I'm really trying to hone my photographic skills so I will be using the lens (along with the others I own) on a variety of subjects. I think of myself as a utility photographer, not a specialist.

Thoughts anyone?

Thanks in advance!

With the current discount, the 14 is the best deal. Its price will go back up so for me tat is one not to be missed.
