Great lens when it focuses

kp3, B&H Photo
4 September 2014
  • Excerpt: As others have stated, lens is tack sharp and colors vibrant. Yet, it has random trouble focusing at times. Seemed ok in good light if you are patient. This lens will not reliably focus if you are trying to quickly point and shoot. Dim light is worse. It may or may not focus.

A little overkill...for me personally

Barry Shapiro, Amazon
31 March 2014
  • Summary: With all due respect to the many great reviews, and reviewers, on this product, the 24 1.4 was a little overkill for me. I have the 17-55 2.8 and have used that extensively for Bar and Bat Mitzvahs, where there is a lot of action!

Twisted

J.E., B&H Photo
1 February 2014
  • Excerpt: Let me explain this lens by using an analogy: What's the point of playing a Stradivari if it does not stay in tune during a live concert? My 24/1.4 delivers amazing results with regard to color reproduction, saturation, contrast, bokeh and sharpness - provided it catches the intended plane of focus.
  • Pros: Nice Bokeh
  • Cons: Blurry Focus

Just a bit short of perfection

Tony, Amazon
29 January 2013
  • Summary: Like many others, I was drawn to this lens because of the unique perspective it is able to capture on a full-frame Nikon. And once again, like many others, I was hesitant to pull the trigger because of it's hefty price tag. But when I first attached this lens to my d600, I was absolutely astounded.

AF-S Nikkor 24mm f/1.4G ED

LRA, B&H Photo
30 January 2011
  • Excerpt: A good but not extraordinary lens. When I compare this lens to others that I own that cover 24mm (24mm f/3.5D PC-E, 14-24mm f/2.8G, 24-70mm f/2.8G) it only rates as good. The Bokeh is, as expected, beautiful and stunning isolation is possible but test this lens before buying.
  • Pros: Durable, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Blurry Focus

Focusing Issues at F1.4

William, Adorama
13 December 2010
  • Excerpt: Well, I wish I could say all the good things that other reviews have stated but I can't. This lens is great at distances of three feet or less when shooting wide open at F1.4 but beyond that the focus point lacks in clarity.
  • Pros: Durable, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Blurry Focus, Heavy

Inconsistent Autofocus

ForFun, Nikon
12 November 2010
  • Summary: The lens produces beautiful, sharp photos when the autofocus hits. The problem seems correctable by stopping down the lens, but then what is the point, just use your 14-24 or 24-70.

Good but not amazing, maybe a bad copy!?

ShutterMan, B&H Photo
10 October 2010
  • Excerpt: I bought this thinking I would use it on both FF and DX. It required a +1 adjustment on the D700 to get perfect focus, and that is not bad. On the D200 it back-focused significantly and on the D300s it required a -20 fine-tuning to compensate for the severe front-focus and it was not enough, it...
  • Pros: Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Blurry Focus, Front-focusing

Лучше достаточно близко познакомиться с объективом перед покупкой.

imhateb, Onliner
27 April 2014
  • Summary: Стандартный светосильный широкоугольный фикс не более того. Зачастую слаб цепкостью фокуса в сложных условиях искусственного освещения, хотя в тех же условиях с фокусом лучше справляется Nikon 35mm/1.4G. Любит ловить зайцев, не блещет резкостью и достаточно медленный для репортажной съемки.
  • Pros: Светосила.
  • Cons: Неоправданно высокая стоимость. Медленный фокус и неуверенная точность в плохих условиях освещения. Пластик.

rimordenizzato il concetto di obiettivo

davide.giovanni, Ciao

  • Summary: I primi prodotti targati Nikon presentavano delle problematiche riguardo la velocità di operazione. Per molti anni questo problema persisteva sul commercio fotografico ma adesso le cose sono cambiate.
  • Pros: design, qualità
  • Cons: prezzo
