Re: Is there a need for F1.4 lenses....

Yeah I can’t account for every case, there are bad lenses and great lenses. On average an equally modern f1.4 will be optically superior to an f1.8 at equivalent apertures.

I’m personally on the f1.8 side as long as it’s amazing. The Loxias are a great example of very slow optically great lenses (21, 25, 85). On the other hand the 24mm f1.4 has some black magic being fairly small and light while having some of if not the best optics of any 24mm.
