Our review

The Nikkor 24mm 1.8G ED is a fast and lightweight wide-angle prime that offers very nice optical quality at a bargain price. The lens offers smooth and fast autofocus and a solid amount of light gathering ability with an F1.8 maximum aperture, which makes it one of Nikon's most affordable and best performing wide-angle primes.

Good for: The lens is great for architecture, landscape, astrophotography applications and photographers looking for a fast and lightweight walk-around wide-angle.

Not so good for: High magnification/macro photography or shooters looking to use this lens in inclement weather conditions.
