Got me some points with the wife

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. She is a borderline professional with a degree in photography, and has sold some of her work, so I feel her thumbs-up is credible. So guys and gals, if your significant other is whining about having one of these I can recommend you get them one.
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. it picked up alot of detail even with a town and city near by plus a moon out! i couldnt imaging what it would pick up if i was in a dark area! Its tack sharp and has excellent contrast and color!
Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I've used this lens for about 2-1/2 months on a D810; roughly 1500 shots, mostly architectural, cityscapes, and some rural landscapes. This lens is a pleasure to use--super sharp (even at 2.8), great contrast and offers the creative opportunities one expects from a very wide angle lens. Regarding the lens flare that some reviewers have complained about, it is to be expected with any 14mm lens. Just look at the curve in the front element. It's huge!
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
Summary: As a real estate and architectural photographer, I literally make a living with the use of wide-angle lenses. And, the 14-24 is up there as the finest wide angle zoom lens I've used, with only the Zeiss 15mm Distagon prime being on par with the 14-24. Picture quality is outstanding. There is minor barrel distortion when used at the 14mm end, and minor vignetting when used wide open at 2.8. However, the barrel distortion quickly dissipates as you zoom in some..
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
