Nikon 24mm f/2.8 AIS Nikkor review by zanxion72

zanxion72, slrgear.com
23 February 2015
  • Summary: One of the best wide lenses ever made. It has a high IQ right from 2.8 and across the frame. This has always been a sought after lens because of its high IQ all over the frame. Most 24mm or wider lenses smear the image at the edges of the lens. This one does not.
  • Pros: One of the sharpest lenses ever made, fast enough, wide with low distortion
  • Cons: Mustache barrel distortion, noticeable if you shoot brick walls

Works Great!

  • Summary: Lens is fantastic to use on my DX Sensor Camera body. The 24mm appears to be 36mm on the D7000 making it perfect for street photography and shots that may need to be a bit more wide. Would highly recommend.

Nikon 24mm f/2.8 AIS Nikkor review by mohawk51

  • Summary: I've owned both and I don't think either the 24/F2 AIS or the 24 F/2.8 AIS are that great. I've read many places that the "crown jewels" of the wide angle line up from Nikon are the 28's. I shoot with the 28 F/2 AIS and it is truly magnificent. Extreme sharpness from foreground to infinity.
  • Pros: I like the angle of view on this lens
  • Cons: Just doesn't seem as sharp as it should be

  • Summary: this is my lens.. if I'm taking my Nikon F3 for that nostalgic street hunts. it's wide, small, fast & sturdy. the mechanics are perfect. I still own this lens and it runs smoothly until now. Optics are good (especially for its era), but no better than any modern lens. Use a modern (digital) body?
  • Pros: very compact! metal body, nostalgic feeling
  • Cons: old & outdated, so-so performer

  • Summary: I really wanted a prime wide lens and 24mm is perfect. Gets exactly what I want in a photo. I love how accessible it is. Though the focus isn't perfect it takes sharp photos really quickly. I highly recommend it as a prime lens for those who want a great wide angle lens.

  • Summary: I have both the 16-85mm and the 24mm f2.8D lens, using a heavy tripod and shooting at f5.6 thru f11, I have found that they compare favorably. The big advantage of the 24mm is its weight and size.

I would recommend this lens, but it's not for everyone.

  • Summary: A fantastic wide angle with a wide aperture. Fairly close focus abilities. I purchased for the use of reversing the lens for crazy macro focus and it works awesome for that! Far less flaring and ghosting than other lenses I've used for this purpose.

nikon 105mm f/2.8 micro lens

  • Summary: Excellent lens, the macro effects are outstanding, this is what I was looking for in a micro lens. I prefer to use MF on macro photography as it gives me more control of the background.
