Summary: Dear all, I'm excited because I was finally able to get my 14-24, an almost ten year old dream! Now, I need to get the right equipment for long exposure shots. I already own a B+W 77mm ND 3.0-1,000X with Single Coating (110). What are the accessories I need to make this ND work in my 14-24. I am looking at Lee filter holder but I do not know if I need an additional adapter. Also, I would appreciate it if you share with me you experience about this combination.
Summary: Purchased based on others' reviews and their opinions that this was sharper than similar prime lenses. Recently processed a few hundred photos from a choral event here in Denver (for which I am the company photographer) and the results are stunning. I use the high end 2.8 70-200 VR, and the 2.8 17-55, and now have this gem to complete the kit. Colors are extraordinary, as is the sharpness of the image..
Versatile and incredibly beautiful pictures!!!!!!!

Summary: This is a heavy heavy lens, but man, It's beautiful. I'm a Professional photographer in NY and use this lens in all kinds of events. I'd actually recomend fixing the sharpness in photoshop or camera RAW but then again, I do that to most of my pictures. Worth the money if you have, buy it on EBAY and pay less for this lens.
Summary: What an awesome lens to add to my camera bag! Crisp, sharp, from corner to corner! Works very well on my D300! A hefty lens to be sure, I use on a tripod in the field and usually have the camera on a mono pod anyway so not bad! I use for interior work and landscapes mostly. Glad to have purchased this lens!
Summary: This is by far the best lens built by Nikon and the best lens ever made for a D-SLR camera. Yes, it is expensive and bulky but the image quality is wonderful in every situation. But before buying it you have to consider the kind of product you are going to buy. This is an extremely ultra-wide zoom lens, if you don't know how to use this kind of lens you are just wasting money.
Summary: I have shot only Nikon gear since the early 1970's and have used most if not all of the variations of F, and now shoot with a D800 which is my dream camera...everything I always wanted in a camera is provided by the D800. Therefore the lenses are the variable. The color rendition is spot on, the autofocusing is fast even in complicated settings and the images are tack-sharp. I have read conflicting comments about its ability to produce rectilinear images.
Summary: I am biased for ultra wide lenses, I was used to a $400 10-20mm Sigma on a crop camera. I upgraded to a nikon d800 and with this lens, i.am.in.love. The images pop almost like a prime lens, not in terms of DOF but the quality of the image, CA, distortion, sharpness corner to corner are impressive -and at this cost it should be-. To me it was between the combo of a Canon Prime 24mm paired with a MarkIII vs D800 paired with this lens.
