Nikkor 14-24: Uses
My favourite lens of all time!! Actually changed I changed camera systems, I had only enough for this lens so went and got it because of anticipated price increase. Few weeks later got a D5000 with standard lens but used this lens more. Amazing IQ but you do have to be careful with architecture .. still learning!
However, the main disadvantage of this lens for me is the extra care you must give to the front element. Filter kit is available but so expensive and when I am not using it on a shoot, I prefer to use the original case to store it which you cannot do with the filter kit.
I think the nearest thing to this lens is the Nikon 17-35 F.28 - the 14-24 replaced this lens and even today the 17-35 used is not cheap!!
