Summary: This is my third Nikon Prime lens, the other two being the 50mm f/1.8 and the 85mm f/1.4. I use those two lenses primary for portraits, and I absolutely love them. The 24mm is a beast in itself that compares extremely well to the 85mm in terms of body construction and quality of pictures delivered.
Summary: This is my favorite go to lens for wide Landscape and astrophotography. This lens isn't great wide open but stopped down to 2.8 is super sharp with minimal vignetting which I tend to like. But stop this down to f4 this thing is a beast of a lens. F5.6 to f8 is ideal on this lens for landscapes.
Summary: I wish the focal length worked better for portraits because this lens is amazing. SO sharp, and I kind of love the distortion I get from it. I don't use it as much as my longer focal lengths, but in terms of quality of the photos, this lens is hands down the best I've ever used.
Excerpt: This lens is the king of shapness among all lenses ever made. I was amazed at how shap the results were when I used it at a company event in low light conditions. The F1.4 makes it very easy to shoot at higher shutter speeds and thus keep the images super sharp.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Sharp, Strong Construction
Excerpt: This is one of my favorite lenses these days. The clarity is just outstanding. This is also an excellent wide portrait lens in tight spots or just to have a good perspective. Focusing is very fast, accurate and colors are just brilliant. The sharpness can be seen in the pic I inserted here.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction, Super sharp
