24-70 F2.8 II vs nifty 50 1.8

@ 50mm of course.

I was not able to find this comparison in a search here (granted, I can never find anything with the search feature here) or online.

Also, since I own both of these lenses, I want to say ahead of time, yes, of course I have tried them both side by side myself, but its been a while, and I think the results were inconclusive ?

So now I'm getting ready to get a lot more serious about stitching some large images, and it occurs to me that 50mm might be pretty good for 3 x 3 or 4 x 4 stitches......

Most important thing to me though, is image quality.

And btw, I almost always shoot at F9 or narrower, regardless of the lens, for my landscapes on a tripod that is.

PS, Its not often that one can do a serious comparison between a $100 item, and a $1600 one, is it ?
