Examples here were taken in the space of a few hours on a day hike.
These shots taken with a second sample of the 24mm f/1.4G (different lens than the initial sample).\
I did not have a chance to verify that this sample was free of issues prior to my trip, and unfortunately the 24/1.4G had issues, with strong red/cyan color fringing on the left side, as well as reduced sharpness in that area. I have sent it back for a refund. For more on lens testing, see Making Sharp Images.
In spite of issues, the potential of the lens is evident.
