Can anyone help me with an opinion on this lens? I have the Landscape photography bug kicking in and would like a wide angle. I used to have a 24mm Pentax that I greatly enjoyed. How does this lens stack up, in your opinion? Anyone use one? Here is the Rockwell Review, prefer to hear more from someone who actually has one. http://www.kenrockwe...4mm-f28-afd.htm Thanks,

I have the AI-S manual focus version of the lens and I like it but I tend to grab the 20mm more often. The 20mm is just less prone to flare when shooting towards the sun. I like the 24mm on a k-1 extension ring for flower closeup shots too. Don't know if the AF version could be used that way or not. Bang for the buck, I don't know how you could go wrong with the new version especially on a full frame camera. I really like the 20-28mm range for landscapes on FX. Distortion is still manageable and you can see some details.

Thanks Arlon! Greatly appreciate your comments. How bad is the flaring? This seems to be something everyone mentions. Also, is the lens as sharp as people report?

I have an manual 24mm as well. Now that I have the 16-35/f4, I like that lens better. More flexibility. Don't get me wrong, the 24mm is a great lens, took this with it. Attached File  jail1.jpg   181.78KB   1 downloads

The lens was pretty sharp on the D700 but I really haven't messed with it much on the D800E. If I get a chance tomorrow, I'll take a front yard shot with it on the D800E and post it at 100%. It does flare a bit I do know that but the 20mm is the only lens I own that seems to be flare proof.. I also don't have the sun shade for the 24mm. Having that might help the flare a little too.

Dennis, great image, thanks for showing me. I am trying to move away from zooms and going only to prime. I want a reasonable good quality wide but I don't want to drop $1500 on it or more. Your image is very nice! A great example. Arlon Thanks, I greatly appreciate the effort and would love to see more images. Very nice of you to offer.

Art I hear the 20-35mm f2.8 AF-D Nikkor is a very good lens and I see them running for around $350 to $450 depending on the condition. This will give you some flexability and a pro grade lens. I have the 18-35 f3.5-4.5 AF-D ED zoom its a pretty good lens and pretty sharp on my D700 it tends to get a bad wrap but I really like my copy. The only drawback is I find its a tad high in price still. Jim

I had both the 20mm and 24mm f2.8D versions and decided to keep the 20mm when I got the 16-35mm. The 16-35mm it at its absolute best at 24mm and I could see little difference between it and the 24mm f2.8 (other than the f2.8!). On the other hand the 20mm f2.8D is better than the 16-35 f4 (at 20mm) so I kept it. Much lighter and easy to use as a "walk-around". On the D700 all 3 lenses are first class. DG

Posted 11 September 2012 - 07:48 PM

Jim and Dave, Thanks for your feedback, greatly appreciated. I am trying to stay away from zooms. Are these as sharp as the 24mm? What I want is a nice sharp image and I can really notice a difference with my 70-300 compared to images from the 300mm. I am also bitten by the architecture and landscape bug. I think a 24mm will be a nice lens for that and for some creative looking images. So, the 20 seems to be a good buy, if I can find one, but there is nothing wrong with the 24mm. Thanks

How do you guys feel about the Nikkor AF 28mm f/2.8D, I can pick one up for $180 CDN.The reviews on it are more acceptable. I am trying to keep it Nikon without spending $1K. When you read the reviews on what they classify as Consumer Glass, it is pretty disappointing! The 18-35 doesn't shape up that well either.

You know its funny the 18-35 and 24-120 VR(original) all got hammered by reviewers etc but I have both and they are exceptionaly sharp end to end. Now mine were bought very late in their production run so mine may have had the bugs worked out but I don't always go by reviews. The 28 f2.8 is a very nice walk around lens but not very wide I find I prefer 24 or greater. I have the MF series E version its very sharp with nice color so I am sure the newer AF-D version performs atleast as well. But my only concern is how these older film lens will perform on a 36mp D800 they do perform well on my D700? Jim

I already expressed my opinion. One thing I have experienced is, I have a 28~70 and wish I had a 24 when i was at 28. I have a 24 and wished I had a 20, or an 18. There are more times I only had 28 and wished I had something a bit wider. If I was going to limit myself to a prime, I go 20mm. So, 24 or 28? I still go 20. Food for thought.

Thanks, Dennis.

Jim, The zooms you mention, 24-120, 20-35/2.8, and, to a lesser extent, the 18-35, are good-sized lenses. The 20-35 is a sweetie, but it's heavy. For walking around with FF, I like a 100mm, a 50mm and a 24mm or a 20mm. Only reason I don't get another 24 is that I have the 20/2.8AF. If I had it to do over, I also would've never gotten rid of the 100/2.8 Kaleinar MF that I had at one time. With those three lenses and an F3, I have a lighter bundle than I'd get with any set of fast zooms. This obviously wouldn't work for shooting a basketball game, but for just walking around it's a great setup. Don

Arlon, that is an amazing image! Thanks for posting it. I missed snapping up the one I was thinking about! Looks like I will have to pay more for one now. I also have my eye on a 50mm 1.4D - $400 This has rock solid reviews. I know they are two different lenses, but I am waffling towards the higher quality image of the 50 since the reviews are better. Thanks for all the commentary so far, greatly appreciate all of them.

Arlon (and all of my other PN buddies who responded), I have put an offer in on the 24mm. I found another one, but I believe he is asking too much. Should know today. If not, I will keep looking. Really, I want a 24 before the 50. I want to do some landscape in the fall and I think the 24 would be perfect for that. The 50 is for family shots. I can get away with a 24 for that too. Again, appreciate all the info and links. I will post if I manage to get my hands on one. Art

Just paid for it. I expect it in two weeks or less. I will post an update. Really looking forward to trying my hand on some architecture and fall landscape. It should arrive just in time to get some nice scenery in.
