    I owned the 35mm f1.4G before and now the 24mm f1.4. The AF speed of 24mm is indeed a bit slower than the 35mm using the same cross-type AF point, although the speed is still enough for many situations.
    Glad you asked. Now all others here who don't already know this and are reading gets to learn something.

    What is subject isolation? It means the subject stands out. It means it is isolated from any distractions. It does not necessary mean you want a thin depth of field. Thin DoF does not automatically equate to a good picture. Sometimes, too thin a DoF will ruin a picture. Understand what is really subject isolation. Use of colors, contrasts, back lighting, leading lines, shapes, all can help in subject isolation. Especially when you can control the surrounding, and can control the lighting, do you really still want a thin DoF? Why do you think studio shooters shoot at smaller apertures all the time?

    need more examples?

    Even if you only want to refer to subject isolation as thin DoF....

    Pic 1


    Pic 2


    Both pics shot on the same camera. Which has thinner DoF? Obviously Pic 1 has thinner DoF.
    Ok, F-stops selected are:
    Pic 1: F4.5
    Pic 2: F1.8
    Why?

    Bokeh is not everything. Thin DoF is not everything. F1.4 is not the best in everything. There is a use in every tool. A good photographer understands that, and make things around him work. Not depend on a one trick pony.

    Understand your tools. Know your basics. Learn and practice. Stop depending on gear solely. And you will be inspired by the results.

    Would love to see if anyone can come out with a shot like this with the 35/1.4 or the 24/1.4.

    *note* - no freaking way! LOL.

    hahahahha... thanks eh... but i know its the one lens u never thought of owning.... hehehhee... but u will love it...

    but i do agree with u, shooting at 1.4 is not everything/or shooting wide open, there are times u need a bit more depth of field...

    Agree on this. Feel the same way from my own experiences. Think this thin DOF & bokeh stuff sometimes get carried away like its the be all & end all of good portraits. I have seen so many pics with this creamy bokeh, that creamy bokeh, shot after shot esp with defocus lens, that I find them quite frankly boring, uncreative, unimaginative, relying on big aperture & nothing much else. DOF I believe depends on focal length & lens to subject distance too. I have seen great portraits that has nothing to do with f1.4. Just my opinion.
