Excerpt: I use this lens for landscape photography. It offers a unique perspective and is very good in the right circumstances such as urban settings or night sky photography. It is great in low light and produces very sharp pictures. It is a little heavy but manageable. There are no external threads for filters, so protecting the lens with a UV filter is not an real option. There is a filter adapter but it is pretty expensive by itself.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: Purchased this to add to my other two gold ring glasses (Nikkor 24-70 and the Nikkor 70-200). I do a lot of landscape photography, and have been saving up and waiting a long time to make this addition to my gear. Before this, my 24-70 was my work horse and go to lens, however it wasn't wide enough to always capture the whole scene. My workaround was to capture a series of shots and stitch them together in photoshop. However, this does not always prove effective.
Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: Bought this lens for shooting interior photography and it is amazing. Yes, it is heavier and you have to be careful with the lens because of the glass but you should always be super careful when you are spending this kind of money on a piece of equipment. So glad I purchased this.
Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I often use this lens when I am walking around in an urban setting or along the shoreline. This lens is laser sharp, with a nice bokeh, and really nice for low light situations with the f/2.8 fixed aperature. I've recently obtained some stunning star trails (astrophotography) using this lens as well. The flanged lens shade is great to protect the protruding lens front and the lens is well constructed for easy and fast autofocusing.
Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I thought I finished off my wedding lens kit with 24-200 mm range of zoom lenses and a couple of fixed lenses. However, when I was hired to shoot in a situation where space was tight, I rented this lens. After shooting with it for 8 hours, I knew I had to buy it. Beautiful results and now a go to lens from my kit for just about everything.
Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
Excerpt: Great wide angle lens. Excellent picture quality, fast, and works great in low light level. I had some apprehension about the inability to use a filter to protect the lens, but have been very careful, and my anxiety level has dropped.
Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Excellent picture quality, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged
Excerpt: I use the lens for perspective control for close in landscapes. It is especially useful in "big sky" shots. Recently I used it to photograph the interior of a million dollar listing for a real estate broker. Shooting 1/5 second exposures off a tripod I was able to get stunning available light shots encompassing large portions of each room with incredible depth of field. It completes the trinity of Nikon zooms; 14-24, 24-70, and 70-200 mm all at f2.8. Incredible!
Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
