Many thanks for all your responses.

I've done some more test both indoor and outdoor and I'm still not very happy with the Nikon 14-24.

For the photo below, I focused on the text "Forrest Gump". I've used different focal length and aperture, from 14mm to 24mm. This is almost the best.

This one either has missed focus & camera shake - or the lens is 100% terrible. Try shooting at faster shutter speeds for lens testing, and use better-lit subjects.

Some more shots below from indoor and outdoor.

This looks not-so-good, I wonder if focus is off.

This looks decent.

I tried "live view" as suggested by some reviewers here and it has indeed solved the issue of focus/sharpness. In fact, "live view" itself already makes a big difference without me doing any manual focusing or enlarging the image to focus on a specific spot.
