Question: I have just upgraded to an FX body and I'm debating between which two lenses that I should get, the 14-24mm or the 24-70mm. I shoot events and people in their environments. Which lens would you recommend for those types of photographs?
Answer: Hi, they are both excellent lenses. However, for me, the
24-70 is a real workhorse. It is a great people and environmental portrait lens.
The 14-24 is pretty essential for big spaces, and overalls, but you can probably
get by with the 24mm end of the 24-70 on an FX format camera. Your choice of
course, but I think you would get more use out of a 24-70.
