Excerpt: While I hope to create a full Nikon 24mm f/2.8D AF Lens evaluation, my first priority is to include results from this lens in the lens comparison tools. This page currently exists because it is required by the database and content management systems for the posting of those standard test results.
Nikkor AF 24mm f/2.8 D (FX) - Review / Test Report
22 July 2012
Conclusion: The Nikkor AF-D 24mm f/2.8 shows good sharpness in the center wide open with rather soft borders. Stopped down to f/8 however the sharpness is on a very high level across the whole FX image.
Excerpt: Originally posted 2006-12-27 on Optyczne.pl After the launch of cameras equipped with APS-C/DX class sensors, it got rather quiet around 24 mm devices. Perhaps the silence was a bit undeserved. On full frame such instruments provide a quite wide angle of view, equal of as many as 84 degrees. When you use 1.5x multiple that angle decreases to 61 degrees but still this is a quite good result, making the lens an equivalent of a classic 35 mm device on FF.
Cons: weak image quality on the edge of the frame,, visible chromatic aberration,, high coma.
Conclusion: The Nikkor AF 24mm f/2.8D didn't really convince during the tests due to various shortcomings. The resolution figures were generally very decent and there's only a slight degree of barrel distortions. However, the lens shows very high vignetting at f/2.8 and very pronounced CAs. Spherical aberrations (focus shifts when stopping down) on top don't make things any better.
