This comparison at 24mm is a critical counterpoint to the 15mm comparison, because zooms vary in performance by focal length.

Tamron SP 15-30mm f/2.8 Di VC USD 15mm vs Nikon 14-24/2.8G: Pescadero Creek Rushing Water (Nikon D810)

As usual, presented with large images up to 24 megapixels, and large crops.

I like the 24mm focal length, and while a fast lens like the Sigma 24mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art is really versatile when the light gets low, scenes like this are ideal for a zoom lens, where a stable tripod position and dry feet restrict the shooting position.
