Re: There is no wideangle lens for the SD1

I've never seen any distortion with the Nikkor 14-24. We use it all the time for weddings in low light, wide open and at high ISOs. It's very sharp. I'm guessing you used a sub-standard or faulty example.

I've tried one, on a late Nikon DSLR, and I was'nt impressed. Lots of distortion for a zoom thats supposed to be rectalinear. The old Sigma 14mm f3.5 rectalinear prime has less distortion and in the centre of frame at least is noticably sharper. The Nikon has better contrast but thats about it. You can pick the Sigma up for peanuts...Cant say the same for the Nikon.
