Excerpt: This lens is amazing! I thought I would miss being able to open up wider, the image clarity and color SOOC are excellent. Excellent contrast and sharpness, too, even wide open. I highly recommend it!
Pros: Inexpensive, Lightweight, Sharp, Strong Construction
Summary: I bought this 24mm 2.8D because I shoot on the DX format. On DX this lens has a 36mm field of view which is perfect for general use. It works great for still life, landscapes, street photography and many other types of photography.
Summary: This lens is absolutely wonderful! I am finding that, more and more I am choosing Nikon lenses over the others out there. Even if they're older, it doesn't matter because I don't use auto focus very often, anyway.
Summary: The lens came with grease pencil writing on the side. The lens was not sharp. A very light fogginess from corner to corner is keeping me from enjoying this lens. My 50mm F1.8 that I paid $150.00 for is a MUCH better lens. What happened? Can I return it? Definitely not happy!
Summary: Wow! Great lens! Focuses very quickly and cleanly. I bought it for the manual aperture for macro photography. The manual aperture allows enough light to actually be able to see the subject through the viewfinder (not possible with G type lenses). Even if you are not using this lens for macro photography it is still a great lens to have. This lens makes me want to go all full frame lenses! Would definitely recommend!
Summary: I usually shoot with a 50mm f/1.4 on a D90, but this was a refreshing change. Shooting wide is completely different, but definitely fun. Pictures are sharp, shooting is quick, and for the price, this is excellent.
Summary: This is a great lens to add to your collection for wide angle results. I do have the Nikkor 14-24mm and love it. However, I am dealing with a back and neck injury and needing to make changes so I can have the lightest lenses with my D800E. This is a good option for landscape, especially if you only want to have one lens. Can easily fit in a coat pocket and be mounted in a flash.
