Excerpt: I hate to not give this lens 5 stars but it doesn't earn all 5. If i could give it a 4.5 i would but alas i can't. <br /><br />I bought this lens to replace my 28 f1.8 on my infrared DX camera (hot spot issues). I wanted this lens because it is a super wide prime which are my favorite for what i shoot, Infrared landscapes. This lens works perfectly for infrared.
Excerpt: I bought this lens because it claimed to be rectilinear. Well, sort of. But in fact, the distortion is so complex that I can come up with no way to correct it. I have found no profiles available for Adobe Camera Raw or Lightroom. Notice in the image that I'm uploading, how the horizon is nowhere near flat. It bulges up in the middle, then down towards the sides, and then up again at the very edges.
Excerpt: This is truly awesome lens that may be used on both FX and DX format cameras. The field of view is fantastically wide without being really distorted like a fisheye lens. The build quality is very, very good, what you would expect from a Nikon lens. It is not to big and not too heavy; it is very manageable and is an absolute pleasure to use. The autofocus is quick and accurate.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: Bought the lens just before a trip to the Bolivian Salt Flats and then the Amazon River. Amazing lens for landscape shots and perspective shots. Extremely sharp. Allows for increased creativity. Depth of field is amazing. Great for putting either a person or object of interest super up close and personal with a beautiful landscape background, with both being in perfect focus.
Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus
Summary: A real specialty lens: If you need a super wide angle FX format lens that's sharp edge to edge with little-to-no "barreling" this may be for you. Our work use is as part of landscape visualizations where we match up a real life scene with virtual constructions - so deep perspective plus rectilinear is ideal. Our fun use is giving everyday street scenes and portraits epic / comically wide CinemaScope like breadth. Pro-tip: rent one first, if you can.
Excerpt: Just got the lens. Product arrived well packed from Adorama and even though shipment was by the cheapest method, I got the lens in plenty of time. Lens quality was rated at N and it seemed almost spotless and fully functional. The glass was clean. So very happy with the description and quality. It came with lens caps but no manual or original box. Got the manual off Nikon website.
Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight, Strong Construction
Newer lens does always mean it is better than the older version in all respects.

Summary: A reviewer gave this lens 1 star giving as reason that this lens was allegedly obsolete in his definition; because it made him to wonder "where to use this lens with the new and better lens in 14-24mm F2.8," without giving any comparison how the 14-24mm F2.8 lens was better than this lens. He could have learned from another reviewer who gave it 4 stars and the details how this lens was better or not than the 14-24mm F2.8.
