About Nikon 24mm F/1.4

Professional photographers have looked forward to the day when the naturally versatile perspective of a 24mm wide-angle lens and an ultrafast f/1.4 maximum aperture were brought together with NIKKOR expertise. That day has arrived, and Nikon is thrilled to announce an all-new, prime wide-angle lens to meet this demand.

Highly advanced optical engineering, combined with Nikon technologies such as ED glass, Nano Crystal Coat and Rear Focusing combine to render exceptional 24mm image quality. The 24's f/1.4 maximum aperture delivers remarkably bright viewing, enables extraordinary low light shooting opportunities and delivers beautifully soft backgrounds.

Designed to meet the performance demands of the larger Nikon FX format image sensor. It is, however, fully compatible with Nikon DX-format digital SLR cameras.

Just about perfect

As a professional wedding photographer who often works in low light conditions, I was extremely happy when Nikon introduced this lens. I find focus to be very accurate and I have not needed to adjust the micro focus on either of my 2 D700s. I am sure Nikon intentionally slowed down the focus to improve accuracy at its widest apertures- this has caused me to miss some shots under fast paced conditions.

As a professional wedding photographer who often works in low light conditions, I was extremely happy when Nikon introduced this lens. I find focus to be very accurate and I have not needed to adjust the micro focus on either of my 2 D700s. I am sure Nikon intentionally slowed down the focus to improve accuracy at its widest apertures- this has caused me to miss some shots under fast paced conditions. When fractions of a second count, this lens sometimes arrives a little late. But for more controlled situations, this lens really performs at an extremely high level- especially at or near its widest aperture. Hey Nikon, how about making the lens focus faster when shooting at f2.8 or smaller, and slow it down at f.28 and wider. Or better yet, how about giving the user the ability to choose a focus speed (fast/slow), with a switch on the lens barrel. Wouldn't that be cool.

Excellent, Bright, Wide Angle lens

By

from San Diego, California

The Nikon 24mm f/1.4 wide angle lens is amazingly sharp when hand help in dark situations. Below is a photo taken at night, hand held, at a shutter speed of 1/125 of a second, an aperture of f/1.4, an ISO of 1600, Auto White Balance, and Matrix Metering.

captured images are so creamy

By

from Undisclosed

I chose the 24mm f/1.4G ED as my first serious lens when I upgraded and bought a new camera even though it was the pricier of the other f/1.4s which I would eventually get. i ran into some auto-focus issues that turned out to be just me not knowing how to use my new camera which the people at the store were helpful familiarizing me with the different auto-focus settings such as A, S, and C. ever since then, i had no problems with the lens focusing. i mainly keep my camera on AF-S, but occasionally use AF-C in sports. i now photograph with prime lenses and i have used the 24mm f/1.4G to cover occasions and sporting events. personally, my favorite subject photographing is my dog and places we go together. i love the creaminess at it's fastest setting and the sharpness in it's slowest. i enjoy the creative possibilities with this lens. i hope you have room in your camera bag for this lens or better yet, on your camera in your hand.

Big Price but totally worth

By

Im Unsinn this Lens for architetural and Industrial Photography. Its in use on a d800 and d600. This Lens delivers sharpness even at wide open and a very creamy shallow depth of field for a wide angle lens

24mm f/1.4G is worth the high price

By

from Granite Falls, NC, USA

Love the lens. It is a perfect compliment to my D800E. I do recomment stopping it down to 2.0 for better color corner to corner (some vignetting at 1.4). Really becomes sharp from f/4.0 to f/16. This is a great landscape and interior focal length. Resolution is a good match for the D800E. I expect this to perform well with future cameras as demands on lens quality continues to be challenged.

A great lens for sunset level lighting

By

from Flagstaff, AZ  -  Semi-pro Photographer

It is fast and it has little or no distortion that shows to kinds of photographs I take. Utterly perfect for shots of Mutant Vehicles at Burning Man. The best time is just as the sun sets, but enough to illuminate the background and show the vehicles self illumination, not much else, without the low f stop can do it. Having such a wide aperture range allows carful control of the depth of field, critical in crowed situations to allow focus on the subject you intended. It is well made, focus fast and gives you a very bright viewfinder in all conditions.

Simply Amazing

By

from Rochester Hills, MI  -  Pro Photographer

I used this for the 1st time last weekend to shoot a wedding, and I'm blown away by the results. It is SHARP from edge to edge, especially when stopped down to 2.0. Fantastic low light performance, fast, quiet, and accurate auto-focus (even in low light), and beautiful, soft bokeh. Just get used to zooming with your feet and you'll love this wide angle prime.

Outstanding Lens

By

from East Coast, USA

This is a great lens. Matched up with a D800e, it captures incredible detail and dynamic range. Combined with its fast aperture of 1.4, it is a very versatile and capable product. I was amazed at the colors captured with this combination (D800e and 24mm) while taking pictures at the National Conservatory and in the DC area around the monuments. I was able to hand hold the majority of the shots, keeping an ISO below 400 (100 for most of them) and still have shutter speeds fast enough to eliminate any blurring or loss of sharpness. When I saw the picture later on my computer, I could hardly believe the range of colors that were captured of the flowers. The fast aperture allowed me to focus on the main subject within a frame, creating a soft and very pleasant bokeh. Those shots I took using a tripod with very slow shutter speeds are sharp and have great color consistency. Despite the high price tag for this lens, I have absolutely NO regrets for buying it. It is a great product and can really show the capabilities of a D800e when matched with this camera.
