Photography Life Review Summary: There is a reason why so many people fall in love with this lens – as you saw from the tests, it is the finest ultra-wide angle zoom lens available today with razor-sharp performance and contrast. Its corner performance is unbelieveable at all focal lengths wide open at f/2.8 and even better above f/4.0, while center sharpness always stays stellar at all focal lengths and apertures. The Nikon 14-24mm shines on the FX sensor and is even better on DX, although I personally think that it is too much of a lens for DX – I would hate to see its corners cut off.

I am following your post since one and half year, you give truly amazing reviews on camera bodies and lens.
I have read some of your reviews twice, I owned D5100 two years back and recently I am using Nikon D610, I have Nikon 50mm + 85mm f 1.8 for Nikon D610, I wanted to buy a wide lens,i do weddings, event photography and landscape photography as well. Can you suggest me some good sharp wide angle lens which can fulfill my needs,as In India during weddings we get low light situations!! I am confused between wide prime lens and wide zoom lens.eagerly waiting for your response.
Read another review on this lens a couple of years ago and was keen to discover what all the fuss was about. A local shop had one with a really good discount so shot a few images and went home to check out the quality before spending the money. Wow, just the dozen inside and street views were sharp and the detail minute perfect. Went back the following day and paid for it. I have taken a wide range of shots from interiors to landscapes with this lens and each one has been very sharp with great contrast, I would have had to use a composite image to produce the same results, but then the moment would have been lost. Just come back from Paris and boy do I wish I’d taken the beast with me. A lens that stretches your creative and thinking skills to get anywhere near what this hunk of glass will produce. Yes its a lot of money but for those folk who are serious about investment in their hobby/business a great piece of kit to have at your disposal.
Extraordinary sharpness, superb colors, beautiful contrast, what more can I say? That lens is a must buy for landscape and interior photography.
I used to have a Canon wide angle zoom lens, the 16-35 F2.8L Mark 2, it is not comparable to the resolving power of the 14-24 (Albeit slightly different focal lens).
This Nikon lens is really unique.
