Excerpt: I purchased the 24mm to shoot Real Estate interiors and would only use it for those jobs. One day I started carrying it around in my "walk-about" backpack when cruising downtown Indy and found that the other 10 lbs of prime lenses in my bag were pure dead weight.
Summary: I definitely have a love/hate relationship with this lens. The love part is great. Very sharp lens, relatively wide range of movements, very solid construction. The CA (chromatic aberrations) are also very well controlled.
Excerpt: I come from 35+ years of view camera studio and environmental background and 40+ from 35mm and medium format.

Summary: First off, this lens is just great as a straight 24mm lens. The color, contrast, sharpness, and especially the lack of any distortion is really amazing. I own 2 other Nikon pro lenses in the focal length range, the 14-24 f/2.8 and the 24-70 f/2.8, and this lens is visibly better than either of them.

To be able to rotate the lens was unsuspected positive, after reading previous, now obsolete reviews. Glad that Nikon responded to this important demand.
Excerpt: This is a very well made lens, which can produce outstanding quality images. However, it is also a lens which has a significant learning curve. There are technical aspects about a PC lens which one must know and understand to get the best results out of this type of lens.
