Excerpt: The Nikon 24mm f2.8 lens is the older design so you need a body which has an auto focus motor in the body, but it is light weight, and sharp. I looked at reviews of the new 20mm f1.8 lens as a good travel lens for landscapes and building interiors and decided I did not need the extra 4mm and speed...
Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Rugged
Excerpt: Needed prime lens for night work and macro work with close up filter set. Lens is perfect, able to provide the wide f stop and appears clear at all ranges. Still experimenting and waiting for a really cold crisp night that doesn't have the Seattle cloud cover.
Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
Excerpt: Out of the box, the lens was backfocusing. After a microcalibration that took less than two minutes, focus is perfect. This is an amazing and sharp lens that has become my favorite for reception dancing shots and dramatic landscape wedding portraits.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
Excerpt: There are better 24mm lenses out there, even on the Nikon system. Of course, those "better" lenses are also much more expensive and more importantly bigger and heavier.I'm mostly a travel photographer and tend to use primes whenever I can get away with it.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Inexpensive, Lightweight, Manual aperture ring, Rugged, Sharp On Df At Least, Very small
Excerpt: I primarily use 24-70 or 35 1.4 for group shots but purchased this lens for when I do not have my 24-70 handy and need something a little bit wider than my 35 1.4mm. I have used this lens primarily for group images and receptions and have been happy with the results.
Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: Light and small.. easy to carry everywhere.. really sharp images.. i use it for outdoor.. landscapes.. acrobats portraits.. etc.. and it works really nice it gets the job done with no problem!
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.
