The 24/1.4g seems a nice lens as well, although I prefer a wider prime lens in the 14, 15 or 16mm range. f2.8 or f3.5 is enough for me.

The 14-24/2.8 seems a fantastic lens, although very heavy. I prefer a lighter and smaller prime.

Just entered the Nkon camp with D800E. What I miss in the Nikon lens line is a

wide and ultra wide 2.8 or 3.5 lens with top IQ, high microcontrast, distortion wel controlled and sharp corners for landscape photography. Close focussing ability

14/2.8g or 14/3.5g
15/2.8g or 15/3.5g
16/2.8g

Also miss a more affordable and lightweight high quality 400mm like
400mm/5.6, VRII, nano coating, weather proof
eventually with new TC 14E III

I would choose the 400/5.6 vrII prime anytime above a zoom in that range.

Just use the 14-24 f/2.8. It's not small, but it's sharper than Canon's short primes. Not to mention Nikon's short primes.

Yes it is, Digital Picture has been a Canon centric website forever. It has not even conducted full tests on Nikon lenses.

Digital Picture's results do not match up with anyone elses results. Find another review site that agrees with Digital Picture.
