Hi all,

I'm planning to buy a new wide angle lens and have cut down my choices to the Nikon 14-24mm and Zeiss Distagon 21mm.

Find it hard to make a decision as both lenses are exceptional in their imagine quality

Nikon 14-24
+ zoomlens
+ autofocus

  • not able to use normal screw on filters

Zeiss 21mm
+ better build quality
+ perhaps even sharper than Nikkor
+ Ability to use filters
+ beautiful colors

  • manual focus

  • prime lens

I'm curious who has been in the same boat and which lens you choose and why.

Many thanks for your feedback.


Take a look at the 24/1.4G too. Should at least match the Zeiss.
