After 24...exf5 25.Nd5, White wins the exchange on the spot, and those passed pawns look unstoppable. That might be as bad as losing a piece. Black's situation is miserable in either line.

<Phony Benoni>,
I was analysing without a board, so I didn't see 25.♘d5 followed by 26.♘f6+ winning the exchange.
