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: So after using this lens, for about a year on my d800, I decided to write this review. I agree that this lens is a value. For what you pay, you are getting a quality build, it's light, it focuses fast enough....with performance that lands comfortably between the Nikon 28mm and the Nikon 20mm primes. In the right light, if you able to deal with some distortion, you can get some really good landscapes with this lens and a graduated ND filter.
Excerpt: Must of my work its doing extreme sports, as you know wide angle lenses are the big boss´s around here. anyway im impressed whit this tiny baby! it has the right amount of aberration just enough to get the space but no tu much to lose your self on the effect. Perfect for video you will love it.
Excerpt: I wanted a prime lens that was wider than my 35-70 and this one was priced very fairly for what it is. I am pleased with the overall clarity and it does focus quickly. The only reason for 4 stars is that it is a little soft around the edges but in reality 9 out of 10 people probably won't even notice it.
Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
Summary: I love this lens. I use a DX d7100 and it is perfect for indoors. You can get full body shots indoors without being 'wide-angle' looking. it's very sharp even wide open, but by f4 the thing is unstoppable. I highly recommend. I'm sure it's even better on FX. Unfortunately, nightime shots are its weakness. Internal reflections inside the l3ns make nightime shots subpar.
Excerpt: I bought this lens to use as an everyday lens on my FX body. It's lightweight, very sharp, and focuses quickly. I needed a wider angle of view than the 50mm gave me and the 24mm is perfect for me. I have the 24-70mm zoom also and I realized I was almost always shooting at 24mm and decided I didn't need to carry around all the extra weight of that lens. I like the challenge of working with a fixed focal length lens - it makes me more attentive composing my shots.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Strong Construction
