Excerpt: This is a great (and economical) lens. I wasn't ready to drop $ for a lens so I nervously picked this out and have been pleasantly surprised. My shots have been sharp and without much distortion. Definitely a great purchase.
Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
Summary: Excellent lens. Well built. Tack sharp. Some distortion at the edges, easily corrected in post. With a slight crop, photos closely approximate what you see with naked eyes in terms of field of view (I am shooting with a cropped sensor). This lens does not have a focus motor, so it will not autofocus on all cameras. Do your research or ask me if you are not sure about this. I highly recommend adding this lens to your bag.
Summary: A perfect lens for the photographer who shoots in different modes. It is an old style lens that is adapted to work with new automatic mode. The real value is when you shoot manual, or shutter priority, because you have real manual lens control, rather than playing around with buttons and menu items like with digital lenses that were designed to have little or no real hands-on manual controls.
Excerpt: I started out with a kit lens and found myself leaving it set to 24mm and decided to give this prime a try. I'm very glad I did. For landscapes, night skies, and even street photography, it's almost perfect. It is extremely sharp and has a hard infinity focus stop that makes it great for night skies. It is light and easy to cary all day. I wish every lens were this good.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
Sharp FX Street Shooter and Great Landscape Capture
27 October 2014
Summary: Purchased this Nikon 24mm 2.8 for a combination of coverage, optical quality, and lower price than Nikon's superb but more expensive 24mm 1.4 wide angle, for night time street and indoor event coverage. This lens preforms better than my 25 year old original Nikon 20mm 2.8 with less edge fall-off and much less edge distortion.
Summary: I recently moved from a D7000 to a D750, and I needed a full frame wide angle lens. I like to shoot with primes, and I have been pretty happy with this one so far. Compared to my 50mm f/1.8 AF-D lens, it is nearly identical in size but is markedly denser and heavier. It has a really substantial feel in my hand, and I'm hopeful that this means it will be durable.
