Expert Reviews

Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8G ED AF-S Reviews reviews the Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8G ED AF-S and writes;
” The lens performs extremely well, with sharp images and little sign of fringing in normal or high-contrast conditions. Even with harsh, low-lying sunlight entering the lens, there is no visible sign of flare or ghosting, while vignetting when used on the Nikon D3 is also hard to see.”
Rating: ★★★★½ reviews the Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8G ED AF-S and writes;
” Optical performance is excellent, mounted on either an APS-C or 35mm frame, but corner shading is a significant issue on 35mm. Happily, image post-processing software can make corner shading a non-issue. Given the variables lens designers have to work with when producing ultra-wide lenses, this is a lens that delivers on what it promises: exceptional optical performance.”
Rating: ★★★★½ reviews the Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8G ED AF-S and writes;
“Sharpness and contrast, as measured by the SQF system, were in the Excellent range at the three tested focal lengths. DxO Analyzer 2.0 distortion tests revealed its true forte: Visible barrel distortion at 14mm (0.51%); Slight barrel at 18mm (0.12%); and Imperceptible pincushioning at 24mm (0.02%) — incredible distortion control by ultrawide, full-frame standards.”

“The Nikkor AF-S 14-24mm f/2.8G ED N is a phenomenal lens. It is the sharpest ultra-wide angle lens tested to date. The resolution figures are simply stunning and unprecedented specifically at 14mm and that’s straight from the maximum aperture setting. “
