Great Images

  • Excerpt: I am using this lens of Landscape shooting. It has given me excellent results. My only complaint is you can not attach any filters to the lens. Because of the convex nature of the lens the normal 77mm rings do not work.

I really like it!

  • Summary: I would give it a 4.5 star rating, but I can't, so there. Only some minor problems that I have had, so far with the lens. 1: The lens cap is a POC piece of plastic that can fall off rather easily. It's only held on by FRICTION - doh. Also, it's so big, that its hard to keep somewhere safe / handy. You really do want it handy, as it's not a good idea to trudge around landscapes w/o it on. Mine is beat to hell from it falling off and rolling down hills, etc.

Great Glass

  • Excerpt: I use this amazing piece of glass any opportunity that I can. Landscape, wedding, event and even for a few portraits if there is time. Photojournalism sometimes needs the wide angle when I get thrown in the corner of a small room. Great edge to edge sharpness.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Heavy

One of "Must to Have" lenses

  • Excerpt: I purchased this lens a few weeks ago and I regretted that I did not have this lens sooner. One of the greatest features I like about this lens is that it has very little distortion even at 14 mm! My initial motivation of purchasing this lens was to take photos of my house for marketing my house. The photos I took with this lens are great - the rooms look spacious without distortion! I also used it to take some landscaping photos and found it equally great!
  • Pros: Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Heavy, Tough To Attach

Fantastic Wide Angle Lense for DX and FX

StarGazer, B&H Photo
11 September 2013
  • Excerpt: If your into Astrophotograpy, Group Photos or really like having a huge amount of F.O.V to play with then this is the lense for you. Good focus, it produces very sharp images with little or no distortion in any part of the image (camera and or Adobe LR can handle the rest).<br /><br />That being said the filter selection available for this lense is shameful, filters are the life blood of photography for anything beyond very basic point and click, those kinds of photos...
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Works On Cannon
  • Cons: Expensive, Heavy, Not Water Resistant, Poor Filter Selection

heavy monster but outstanding optics

  • Excerpt: would give it 5 stars but for the weight and size, also the front element of the lens requires extra care to protect since it protrudes so much it can be easily scratched if not careful <br /><br />but the images it produces, wow!
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus
  • Cons: Difficult to Clean, Heavy, Size, Weight

Why Did I Wait So Long

  • Excerpt: Life circumstances has provided me with much more time to enjoy my hobby, landscape photography. So I decided to buy this Nikkor 14-24mm f/2.8 lens. WOW. Adding this quality Nikon lens to my arsenal opened up all sorts of new image possibilities. This FX lens is sharp as a tac, fast, and compliments my Nikon D800 camera. Focus is fast and the zoom ring is an easy reach.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus

Amazing piece of gear, one downside..

Bakisto, B&H Photo
1 May 2013
  • Excerpt: I mainly use this lens for landscape shots on my D600. It's build quality is what you'd expect from a lens in this price range. <br /><br />With that being said I ended up hating this lens - Temporarily that is. All my shots lacked the clarity and tack sharpness everyone raved about. Every photo had a slight fuzziness to it that reminded me of some cheap Tamron glass I used to shoot with. The majority of my images were unusable. My copy had terrible backfocusing.
  • Pros: Durable, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Difficult to Clean, Heavy

the one

david, B&H Photo
21 January 2013
  • Excerpt: I recently upgraded from a D200 to a D800 and upgraded my wide angle from a 12-24 DX to this. love it! the 12-24 was a good lens, but this one is in a different category. not only because it covers the full FX frame of the D800 but because it is sharp across the frame and across the zoom and exposure ranges. you'll notice the distortion at its widest, but that's not unusual in a wide angle and the corners are so sharp you won't really care.

  • Excerpt: When I took the lens for the first time out of the box, I said &quot;oh no what did I buy?&quot; I was extremely concerned about the lens beings so bulbous and the danger of scratching the lens. After taking a couple of shots in my living room with it I said to myself &quot;I just bought the sharpest lens I have ever seen!&quot; So with that info here it is, Yes awesome photos, little to no distortion.
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Sharp
  • Cons: Poor design
