Sharp but Has Problems

Bryan, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: This lens is sharp and a solid performer from 20 to 30ish. Below 20, you see distortion that's easy to remove in post processing. It gets a little less sharp around 35 and is definitely not as sharp as the 24-70 or the old 35-70 at 35mm. I can get sharp images with the VR down to about 1/6th of a second. The problem is when used on a D800 with high ISOs and during long exposures it can cast a red glow and arcs onto the rightside of the image.
  • Pros: Lightweight, Sharp
  • Cons: Poor in Low Light, Red Glow On Image

Has its faults

  • Summary: I would agree that this is quite inferior to the 14-24mm. At the wide end (or rather, at about 20mm), this is quite a good lens, and is sharp. However, at 35mm, it is hardly any use at all, and compared to even the 35mm f.2, it is very soft. It is also heavy and with bags of distortion. Were it in the region of 16-24mm, I have no doubt it would be a very good lens, but the poor results at the 35mm end rule it out. I sold mine after 6 months.
  • Pros: Reasonable at wide end
  • Cons: Heavy, Poor at 35mm

  • Summary: I sold my 14-24 lens for this one and shouldn't of bothered its not in the same league. It shall be getting sold and the 14-24 coming back home. The only good point about the lens is its lighter than my previous lens.

  • Excerpt: Приобрел для Д800 по причине того, что желаемый 14-24/2.8 очень дорог. Разочарование полное. Он абсолютно не разрешает матрицу данного аппарата, об использовании полного кропа речи не идет, максимум 50-60%.
  • Pros: Можно выделить отлично работающий стаб, хорошая цветопередача.
  • Cons: Не резкий, отвратительная геометрия даже для "суперширика". Цена в 37-40т.р. за это - очень много.

Lieber nicht

  • Summary: Mag sein das sich dieses Objektiv an einer DX besser macht. An der D700 leiferte es nuch mittelmäßge QUalität ab. Die Schärfe war selbst im mittelblendigen Bereich nicht zufriedenstellen. Aus 17-35mm, dem 16-35mm, dem 35mm und dem 14-24mm habe ich mich eindeutig für das 14-24mm entschieden. Top Schärfe. Leider kann man an diesem keine Filter nutzen.
