Here are the faults with the Nikkor 14-24: 1. The biggest issue is that using GND filters is difficult and expensive with this lens. 2. I guess you could also complain that this lens quite heavy. 3. The price is high, there is no debating that. The positives: 1. Excellent sharpness through all focal lengths and apertures. Sharp to the corners. This lens is just as sharp as the Canon 17TSE on Canon FF DSLR's, and you have the benefit of being wider, longer and AF as well. 2. Despite the ...

This lens is awesome, minimal distortion and very sharp with excellent resolution. I changed from the 16-35 to the 14-24 and I'm glad I did. It was worth it purely for the superior optics. Problems: No regular filters, small range, price.

Great work from Nikon. The sharpness is outstanding, the deformation is so low for such a ultrawide lens... Contrast, definition are splendid. Now with such a beauty one can imagine to go around and pics as he would do with a normal lens... not so easy! The lens with a D3 body is very heavy, the frontal lens is big a exposed to everything in 14mm position... Nikon professional service says that's never problem with frontal lenses... ok, let's believe them. Anyway, on hard situation, with ...

(FX) f2.8, G, Nano crystal coat, ED, spectacular. Nikon knows it. Full Frame extraordinaire. No need for VR in all of their wide angles. imo. This lens is fast, complete and to the point. 9 focus points to 59, it handles them all beyond expectations. This 'formatted for level' lens will stand up front for many years to come. You'll not duplicate the 120 deg. with a lower production cost unit. Crisp, clear, square " in the camera" shooting .RAW. Landscape is the design yet tall buildings fit ...

I have had this lens for several years and initially used it with a D3 Nikon and now use it with a D3x. This is, without a doubt, the best ultra wide zoom I have ever used. It is crisp and clean out the edges and seems usable at all apertures, although I'd be surprised if anyone needed to use it stopped down all the way. Because of its extreme width at 14 mm you have to be careful to level it, or at least know when it is out of level. I find I use the built in level in the D3 x for just ...

I never was a wide angle guy until I got this lens. Decided to buy it packaged with a D7000 and dont regret it. I do weddings, engagement shoots and portraits and without fail this lens comes out for a few (~20%) of the shots but almost always those are some of the best shots of the day. Coupled with some off camera flash, this lens can create some monumental environmental portraits... great for brides and couples in a beautiful environment. Recently Ive gotten more into landscape ...
