Excerpt: I bought this for my D610 and absolutely love it. You don't realize how wide 14mm is until you see how much landscape you can get into a shot. The distortion is only an issue if you don't use an editing software for post production clean-ups. It disappears in one click on Lightroom.
Excerpt: OK, let's start with the minor drawbacks and then finish on a positive high!! Cons: 1. Huge front glass that's a little exposed and required 'mindfulness' when using to ensure it is treated carefully (you don't want to scratch the glass on this baby given the price to acquire it!!) 2.
Excerpt: I was not quite sure whether to get this lens or not. I have the Nikon 24-70mm f2.8 and It is my go-to lens. However, I wanted a bit more of wide range for my photography. I use this lens with a Nikon D800, a D750 and a film Nikon f100.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: It's new and mounted on a new D750. All kinds of junk is showing up in post. Lens flare and orbs.I have an old throw down Tokina 12-24 mounted on a D300s. That [$] Tokina - bang for the buck - outperforms that [$] Nikon 14-24 ALL DAY. I did the research before buying. Reviews were convincing.
Summary: Bought it as a gift for my wife (sorry ladies, I'm taken) and she really, really likes it. She's got all this techno-babble to describe it, but all I heard was blah-blah-blah-this is really great-blah-blah-blah.
Excerpt: Needs more than 5 stars! This lens is even better than i expected. after getting it in the mail i took it out for a test run taking pictures of my backyard, plants up close wide open and stopped down. and when it got dark i tried it out on the stars with my d700.
Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
