Purchase a refurbished Nikon 14-24 2.8 lens for a GREAT price. My first impression" WOW, It appear as new. Not one scratch or dust on it. Autofocus is fast and accurate. Build quality is superb. This lens is sharp from corner to corner on my D3s/700. Highly recommended

Full of high expectations from great reviews I was disappointed. I get better results with my Nikon 18-35. The focal length is so broad with the 14-24, I don't get the fine detail that I get with my 18-35. Of course this Nikon 14-24 is an old tech lens compared to the Nikon 18-35. The 18-35 has the ability to add filters, and seems to me to be Nikons upgrade to the 14-24.
Purchased this lens to use on the d810. Very fast and happy with the overall result.
I use this lens for real-estate photography. The wide angle makes it ideal for capturing rooms. The bulbous lens prevents me from adding a standard filter, but so far filters haven't proven necessary for my uses. If I ever need a filter, several third-party attachment systems exist (though pricey). Don't buy this as a "walking around" lens. If you aren't paying very close attention to distortions, you can get some pretty wonky photos. However, when you need the wide angle, this lens performs beautifully.
I bought this lens for real estate photography, and it's great! Wide angles but straight vertical lines.Fast and sharp.Ideal with my full-frame D750 for architecture. At first I was worried about not being able to fit a filter, but that hasn't been an issue for my work.
This is one of my go-to lenses- it is fast, tack-sharp and covers wide angles well.
Needs more than 5 stars! This lens is even better than i expected. after getting it in the mail i took it out for a test run taking pictures of my backyard, plants up close wide open and stopped down. and when it got dark i tried it out on the stars with my d700. it picked up alot of detail even with a town and city near by plus a moon out! i couldnt imaging what it would pick up if i was in a dark area! Its tack sharp and has excellent contrast and color! i specifically bought this lens for astro photography, land, cityscape, cramped areas and whatever else i can think of to use it for. id say the only complaint i have about it is it tends to have an easy tendency to get sun flares at 14 to 18mm from the sides of the lens. this is due to how the lens was made with the massive glass bulb on the end. this is normal, any lens this wide would be a sun flare magnet. to avoid this either have your back to the sun or make sure something is blocking the sun or have the sun centered with your photo. other that that its just a wow lens! remember to stop down to around f8 or higher with this lens to have sharp corners cause this is an ultra wide lens! i recommend this lens!
Great product!... Amazing sharpness around the corners,distortion is very low and easily correctable. Excellent lens!...
Sharp, fast, also tells other nikon users to look at me!!!! haha. Great lens, especially for compact places where you don't get to maneuver, and for seances. It does get a bit heavy with my D4.
I've been a Nikon owner and admirer for years. This is a terrific lens in all respects. It has no competition.
Below is a photo of a 340 foot long "box" truss I recently erected for an airplane hangar in Arizona. With limited foreground in which to work, this ultra wide angle zoom lens allowed me to get close to the structure, capture it all, and with no noticeable distortion. The image was taken at a shutter speed of 1/320th of a second, an aperture of f/9, an ISO of 100, a focal length of 14mm, Auto White Balance, and Matrix exposure metering.
