Quote:I have no doubts the lens is worth the recommendation ... I just recalled, when the
review of the 24L II came out and the review of a comparable Zeiss (21/2.8) which
have absolutely comparable performance at comparable f-stops ... the 3 stars for
the Canon were justified by the mediocre border performance wide open ... but as
it seems the thinking within PZ has changed.
There's no corner performance of the Canon 24mm f/1.4 II to speak of at f/1.4 and the corners are also substantially worse at f/2.
I also have to recognize that this a 20mm lens where the optical problems are a magnitude more difficult than at 24mm.
It's also a world first whereas today's 24mm f/1.4 are me-too lenses.
I concur, however, that the Canon should deserve a half star more though given the peak performance.
