Thanks for the feedback thus far.

Mike K, I did see those reviews that you pointed to and that's the reason why I'm hesitating. I was all set on the 24L II and looking at the reviews, as great as the 24L II is, the 24 TSE II seemed that much better, especially for landscape.

I don't think you can go terribly wrong here, as both are excellent lenses.

It's all about your primary shooting style and other tools at your disposal. I'm able to use a 35L for AF & low-light. If you need a fast lens in addition to a landscape lens, sounds like the f/1.4 is your choice. If you don't, then the TSE would treat your landscape shots better.

I will say that if you go with the TSE you will not be disappointed in its optical performance and flexibility with the movements. Trust me on that one.

If you want to shoot on the "fly", in low light or moving subjects, you don't want the T/S lens. On the other hand, if you plan on taking your time setting up your shots, shooting from a tripod, want to correct perspective distortion and don't mind manual focus, the 24mm T/S is the way to go. They are really two very different lenses. While they can overlap in use somewhat, the areas where they "shine" really differ. If you can figure out what and how you want to shoot, the choice should be easy.

+1


for landscape and architecture, the TS-E is going to owned the 24L II, you'll be stopping down for bigger DOF anyway so the faster aperture from the 24L II ain't going to matter. CA is worst on the 24L II as well...if you can live without AF then by all mean go for the TS-E.
