On article Fast and light: Nikkor 24mm F1.8G ED lens review (159 comments in total)
In reply to:

Pat Cullinan Jr: "If you're an APS-C shooter the 36mm equivalent focal length with an equivalent aperture of F2.7."

Folks, you're buying a lens having a fast aperture of f/1.8.

Can people see how the "equivalence" fallacies propagated on this website are poisoning people's minds against certain optical products? What would the manufacturers think about this? Doesn't DPR have a professional reputation to uphold, and don't these erroneous opinions undermine that reputation?

munro harrap: So no advantage then over an old 24mm f2.8 A.I.S? Or the 24-85VR? which also improves as you stop down at 24mm, but is still pretty sharp at f3.5. Bit of a shock to discover that even a 35mm sized sensor is way too difficult , WITH A MIRROR THERE, to be really crisp. Not as good as the 24mm f1.8 on my LG G4, what a shame!! The lens on the LG G4, and the V10 is sharp edge to edge and corner to corner at f1.8, despite the problems of miniaturization with optical stabilization, and the lens on the Pureview 808 Nokia IS as sharp, but hey its only 26MP, albeit on a 38mm sensor!! Yes, folks, it really is sharp, edge to edge and corner to corner, but there's no mirror in the way. Now, all they have to do is to scale it all up to 35mm size, and there you go, problem solved, OIS, sharp wide open, no vibration as no mirror slap, and much less noise, and if anybody else claims 1.8 = 2.7 on APS-C I'll scream. This relates not to aperture, but ONLY to relative depth of field.

"if anybody else claims 1.8 = 2.7 on APS-C I'll scream."

I'M SCREAMING!!

See my remarks following this.

"comparable to a FF 36mm F2.7"

Comparable only AS REGARDS DOF.

As regards EXPOSURE, the lens is F/1.8.

steelhead3: Is the price 3300 or 2600? unclear but Sony uses price to tamp down demand

I allow's how they're just passing the time of say.

I gotta say, it's one beautiful lens.

Mine is not working on the 5D3, and on the 6D there is a delay closing the diaphragm. At least 4/5 people have confirmed the same problem. Irix is workin on a solution.

@Barney Britton, "You were saying, Pat?"

Ha ha, double fooey with a prune on top.

These photos are outstanding in composition and beauty, in the tradition of Phil Askey. At the same time, they serve well to afford a basis for judgment regarding technical quality, again in the tradition of the same Phil Askey. Lars has got THE EYE.

Hat tip to Lars!

HowaboutRAW: How about some dark interiors with challenging lighting using ISOs above say 3200 with the D750.

So yes, this lens looks amazing in daylight.

I still prefer stuffed animals. Like the blue whale hanging off the ceiling. :)

Emadn13: f1.4 sample portraits are too shallow in my opinion,with this price range a 135mm f1.8 would be better reasonable shallow depth with same bokeh
but this lens is so good for low light,you could take some lowlight shots

Oh. Thanks. I don't feel THAT dumb now.

If it's shot at 1.4, it's a lens test as well.

Only no rock bands, please. How about stuffed animals at the museum?

What is "OP"?

It's probably obvious. I'm probably dense.

Nice photos. Thank you.

When you get the opportunity, how about some low-light-high-ISO-large-aperture shots?

All the best,
Pat

Kiwisnap: Would have been nice to see it on a D810 and a D5 instead of a 750.

The cityscape series was shot with a D810.

Nice sharpness at 1.4.

Thar price, ouch! I'll have to wait till my liver grows back again.

justmeMN: "those orders could take up to three months to fulfill as Sony expects the lens to popular and that demand will out-strip supply for some time." -DPR

Yup, at $3300/$2600, every Sony camera owner will buy one. :-)

Livers are fetching very attractive prices at this time.
