Regrets? I regret every lens I spent money on before the 24. This lens is the best lens EVER......Period. Well, for my eye at least. Best thing I did was NOT get a 16-35 and go with my gut and get this instead. It is seriously bad at nothing and great at everything. Low distortion, FAST, Really wide, sharp as crap stopped down, Stupid awesome creativity wide open and flare resistance on top of all that. If I could only own one lens, this would be it after very little deliberation.
Obviously focal length depends entirely on your personal style of shooting, but if you were to only own one lens, would you not find 24mm a bit awkward?
For my last couple of trips, I've brought two FF bodies with the 50L and the 24L. I just took a look on the server, and out of the keepers from each trip, I'm averaging around 1/3 from the 24 and 2/3 from the 50. In my experience lately, the focal length feels like a bit of a 'tweener – not really wide enough to be interestingly wide, but also not long enough for everyday situations. Although I'm sure as soon as I rotate the 24L out of my travel kit for something like the 16-35 or 35L, I'll immediately miss it, haha.
