Re: Lens recommandation ?

Money no object: Nikkor 14-24 2.8 S - surprisingly lightweight, excellent image quality (not sure if it can surpass the Sigma though), sunstar rendition is the best out of all three.

Lightweight and compact choice: Nikkor 14-30 f4. image quality is good but not as good as Sigma. Sunstar rendition is mediocre. However, it can take standard 82mm filter and 100mm square filter system right now. This is the biggest advantage of 14-30.

Best value overall: Sigma 14-24 f2.8. Excellent image quality (albeit less flare resistant), price is the least expensive among all three lenses. Sunstar rendition is mediocre, weight is heavy and the lens does not accept circular and 100mm filters.

If you use filters very often, then the reasonable choices will be Nikon 14-30 / 14-24 2.8 S. If you also shoot astrophotography, then Sigma 14-24 and Nikon 14-24 S are probably the better options (better than Nikon 20 1.8 I believe).
