Four New Reviews Coming Up

I have been spending all of my available time to test the new Nikon 24mm f/1.4G lens (which is stellar in every way), along with other Nikon ultra wide lenses and have been comparing them all at different focal lengths. The plan is to write an article comparing those lenses head to head at the same focal length, ISO, aperture and shutter speed to see how they stand against each other. Here is the full list of lenses that I am currently testing:

  1. Nikon 24mm f/1.4G (full review is coming up first)
  2. Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8G
  3. Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8G
  4. Nikon 16-35mm f/4G VR
  5. Nikon 17-35mm f/2.8D

This is going to be one heck of a comparison! My first priority right now is to finish the Nikon 24mm f/1.4G review, which I have been putting off because of: a) lack of time and b) horrible weather that we have been getting lately (it has been snowing and has been extremely windy during the last two weeks). This weekend does not look any better, so I am just going to use what I have so far.

Stay tuned!

    Hi Nasim,
    I have a D3100 with the following lenses, 18-55 kit lens and the Nikkor 55-300mm.
    I find the lens “hunting” to focus. What causes that?
    What is a good and fast-focussing lens that I could buy for nature and portraits?
    Thank you.

      Chelli, the cause could be low light / lack of contrast or simply bad focusing technique. When photographing subjects, place the focus point (the little square) on an area with high contrast and you should not have any problems with lens hunting.
