Summary: I love this lens so much it is the only one I reccommend to all photographers. I found myself working for a newspaper having to take group shots at least once a week and had to make do with a 18-55mm kit lens, a 35mm 1.8 and a 50mm 1.4. All fantastic lenses(yes even the kit lens, if you use it correctly) but I just wanted a wide prime that didn't distort and could work without flash in low light situations when needed. Enter the 24mm 2.8.
Summary: I bought my 24mm F/2.8D in L.A. for my D90 body. The lens performance has exceeded my expectations. The focusing is instantaneous and the image is clear and sharp. Simple to use and light to carry make this lens as my default. Now, I don't even have to be bother with changing into other lenses unless I needed to zoom. All in all, a great lens to have in the collection.
Summary: I purchased this 24mm f/2.8 lens for use on my new D300s realizing that with the crop factor it would be equivilant to a 35mm lens. Even so, this is a very sharp fast lens for a general walk around lens. I use it with a Nikon clear filter and a Nikon metal hood. Light weight, easy to use, fast, sharp, inexpensive. What more could you want. I give it 5 stars.
Summary: I bought this lens to take indoor photos at family gatherings, weddings things like that. It delivers and some, super sharp and fast enough to hand hold indoors. You can't go wrong with any of Nikon's fixed lenses so if this focal length is what you need buy it!!!
Summary: Nikon has a history of making superb lens, this is no exception. This is a great piece of glass. Wide angle shots are colour rich and tack sharp. [...] The review section also helped me decide which option to take, and balance out the pro's and cons to validate my decision in buying this piece of glass.Thanks B&H!
