Okay, but not great.

John G, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this lens used from a local dealer. It was in great condition but I shot an event and noticed it had significant back focusing issues, meaning it actually focussed further away than you intended it to, leaving lots of my photos with out of focus faces.

I really wanted it to work...

  • Excerpt: I bought this lens in hopes of having a quick, sharp wide angle that would eventually carry over when I upgrade from my D90 to a full frame body. I own the 50mm f/1.8D and the 85mm f/1.8D. Both of these lenses are of the same product line as this 24mm.
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus
  • Cons: Blurry Focus

Not good for D800e

  • Excerpt: This is probably a great lens on other cameras, but definitely too soft for the D800e. With the large sensor the D800e and D800 have using this lens will result in really soft edges.
  • Pros: Lightweight
  • Cons: Blurry Focus

  • Excerpt: I sold the 35mm 2.0 AF-D lens to purchase this 24mm lens as I wanted to go wider. My research indicated that the two were very similar, but I did not find that to be the case. Though I wasn't knocked out by the 35, I found it to generate acceptable image quality. I can't say the same of the 24.

OK 24mm lens from Nikon

Robert J. Crowley, Amazon
6 October 2012
  • Summary: One the main reasons I rushed to own an FX Nikon is to use wide angle lenses like this one. The 24mm f2.8's speed is of no concern to me, as I am usually in good light, outdoors, or use a tripod.

Compact, Fast, Good Build- With Some Issues

30 May 2012
  • Summary: I purchased the Nikon 24mm f/2.8D to use in conjunction with my Nikon D300s. I am going through my "prime phase," which was precipitated by a bad encounter with a Nikon 17-35mm f/2.8D ED-IF AF-S Zoom Nikkor Lens for Nikon Digital SLR Cameras that I could just not get to perform under any...

Great build, middling image quality

Billy Mac, B&H Photo
2 November 2011
  • Excerpt: Got this lens to act as a "light" wide on a D300s DX format; Nikon lens build quality is without question and the lens generally small and light. I have a 35mm 2.0D that I use as a "normal" lens and the image quality and sharpness seem great throughout the full range of f-stops; unfortunately, the...
