I just saw this on Nikon Rumors and I am quite impressed on many levels....

 

Here is the link to the Picture Gallery:

Here is the Nikon Rumors link with a 10% off coupon...

 

http://nikonrumors.c...er-system.aspx/

 

Impressive looking glass for $600! less 10%. US$

 

Upon some deeper review... there seems to be some flare issues with this lens.  If you are interested in it, do searches and read the commentary first.

 

I am getting mixed signals.  The Gallery looks great in my books.  But not all reviews are good.

Looks like a very nice lens, Art. I've been considering the eventual purchase of a Nikkor 14~24 f/2.8G lens but a 15mm prime could be a nice alternative.

Afterall, I already own the 24mm f/1.4.

 

Keen to see DxO test results on it though.

 

Added bonus... it's very realistically priced too, unlike some Nikon lenses these days!

The price tag and focal length drew me to it right away, but some posted issues tell me to proceed with caution.

Agree with you 100% re: Nikon and pricing.

The 14-24 is one sweet lens, Herman! ;)

11mm for full frame? VERRRRRY tempting.
Don
==========================================================
Digital: D610 backed up by a D1x.  Quoted from an unknown source by a fellow planeteer, "Never get rid of a working D1x." I've got to agree.

Film: N90s, F3, F100, F4s, C330s. A few lenses.

Why film photography? I like shooting with the equipment. 6x6 Velvia slides from a C330 have an appeal all their own.

Why automated 35mm/Digital cameras? Event photography is about capturing moments. It often requires quick response. Well done automaton can be your friend or your enemy. It all depends on knowing what it can and can't do. "A man's got to know his (camera's) limitations." paraphrasing Dirty Harry...
