An old excellant friend

Rich1939, B&H Photo
2 February 2015
  • Excerpt: I've had this lens for about 30 years now and currently when I want to use my D600 as a "point and shoot" this old standby fills the bill to perfection. Setting the camera on manual with a shutter speed of 1/125 ap at f/8, ISO on auto and focus at about 9 feet, all you have to think about is composure. The lens has never failed to deliver excellent IQ. (Just be careful of situations where you'll encounter flare).
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Rugged

Marvellous.

  • Excerpt: I use this lens, with an adapter, on my Sony a7II (previously on an a7). The lens and camera combo gives me outstanding performance whether I'm taking jpegs, raw or both. Of course the lens is a pleasure to use -- it's built so well -- and manual focus is quick and dead on with the a7II. If you're after a reliable and properly made piece of equipment the 24mm is a sure bet.
  • Pros: Accurate Manual Focus, Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: NONE

  • Excerpt: Using this lens on my Nikon D810 and it works great. Also nice that it can be used on an older film body with the aperture ring it has.

Cadillac of all nikon manual lenses!

Tatranegativ, B&H Photo
6 July 2014
  • Excerpt: This piece of equipment is unparalleled quality! There is nothing like old school made manual quality lens. This is one testimony from the 80 ies, how things were meant to be made. I was deciding between AF and this lens in 24mm focal lens. Super choice! Yes AF is convenient to have, but if you stop down to f8 during the bright day and focus at 2m, than you have everything in focus from 1.1m to 15m or if you focus at infinity at f8, you got everything in focus from 2.3 m...

  • Summary: Great depth of field. Faster than most AF lenses on the market. Better optics too. Have had this lens for 25 years. Using it on my new D3200. Love how the old lenses still fit the new digital cameras. Who needs auto focus with a lens like this?

Nikkor superb manual wide angle

Doctor, B&H Photo
16 October 2011
  • Excerpt: This is an amazing manual focus lens. I use it with the FM3A camera. The sharpness is excellent, the contrast is wonderful but the thing you can't find anymore on lenses is the quality. All metal construction, creamy soft focus ring, very small and light. I am a Canon user since 1995 but Nikon did make fantastic manual focus lenses. It is hard to find these lenses now a days so a big thanks to B&H Photo for having them in stock.
  • Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged

Great lens for close and tight spaces

NikonEd, Nikon
7 July 2011
  • Summary: I loved using this lens for much of my photography, especially when I was in tight or confined spaces. I also loved being able to set it to its hyperfocal setting and be able to shoot "hail Mary" style when doing crowd shots and get great results. During my photojournalism days, this was my standard lens. I still long for a lens like this and like how subjects are rendered in the resulting image. Its edge-to-edge sharpness was excellent and without too much distortion.
