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
Excerpt: I read the reviews here and thought I would like this lens. Wrong. I love it. It makes me look like I know what I am doing. I enjoy taking photos and I delight in taking really good photos. This lens will not disappoint. It requires a little TLC because the is no protective filter, but it is well worth it. This lens makes me look better than I am. I am sure it can do it for you.
Excerpt: This is a lot of fun, trying to make distortions look normal, and man, do I need that. I use it on an N60 I bought in 1998, but will shift to the F100 when I am through with the roll. I do not like changing filters, as them screws are so small I am afraid of inhaling one? Be that as it may, if you get the filter changing kit from Nikon, which I obviously have, make sure you keep a magnet around to catch those little screws if they stray?
Summary: I've had one shooting session under my belt since acquiring this lens about a week ago and I was blown away by the results. Excellent contrast and sharpness. I utilized the "virtual horizon" utility in the D600 so that the camera was perfectly level for each shot I took with this lens. I was shooting a pier at the beach and was very interested to see how this lens handled the horizon, as well as the upright supporting timbers under the pier.
