As Roger said, this is an easy answer, the 24mm f1.4 shot wide open will be by far your best chance to capture a high number of meteors. Aperture is king, don't bother with anything slower than f2 and wider than ~20mm, your 24mm f1.4 is perfect for this.

Thanks you. I will try to make a composite with a nice and interesting foreground. Fingers crossed that the weathers will be good.
