24mm is my core, most used focal length for landscape work. I've exhaustively evaluated all options at/near this length.

I'd put the lenses I've looked at into tiers:

1) Top Tier (excellent): Only one makes the cut: Zeiss 25/1.4 Milvus

2) Very Good Tier: in order of sharpness (best first), 24/1.8G Nikkor, 24/1.4 Sigma Art, 24/1.4G Nikon

3) Pretty Good but not exceptional: 14-24/2.8G at 24mm, 18-35G at 24mm, 16-35/4 at 24mm

Note that if BOKEH is a desirable trait, the Nikon 24/1.4G is your lens, no questions.


What about at the 14mm end? Only other competitors are the tamron 15-30 (which isn't very good) and the Sigma 14-24 (better than the tamron), but there is no direct comparison between the Sigma and the Nikkor...
