Product Highlights
  • Zoom Super Wide Angle

The Nikon AF-S Zoom Nikkor 14-24mm f/2.8G ED AF Lens is an extreme ultra-wide zoom, wide-aperture lens that delivers edge-to-corner sharpness that can surpass that of equivalent fixed focal-length lenses. It features a Nano Crystal coating to reduce the effects of ghost and flare, combined with 2 ED (Extra-low Dispersion) elements and PGM aspherical lenses that help control chromatic aberrations. These all combine to enhance sharpness and contrast.

The Silent Wave Motor (SWM) feature provides swift autofocus with superior accuracy and ultra-quiet operation. This G-type lens does not feature an aperture ring on the lens body, resulting in a lighter and more compact lens. Aperture changes are designed to be done via the camera's command dial.

Note:
AF-S feature is not supported by certain older camera models. Please click here for a list of compatible models.
"G" type lenses are not fully compatible with the F4, N90-series, N70, N8008-series and N6006 (or older model) cameras, only programmed auto or shutter-priority auto exposure mode can be used.

Two ED (Extra-low Dispersion) elements and PGM aspherical lenses control chromatic aberrations while enhancing sharpness and contrast.
Exclusive Nano Crystal Coat further reduces ghosting and flare for even greater image clarity.
Internal Focus (IF) provides fast and quiet auto focusing without changing the length of the lens, retaining subject-working distance through the focus range.
Rugged construction and professional-grade dust and moisture resistance.
M/A Focus Mode switch enables quick response to changing situations between Auto and Manual focus operation.

    I shoot mainly Landscapes and some Interiors. This lens is fantastic for both applications. My first recommendation to you is...Read the Professional test results and recommendations about the lens and...Believe B&H Buyer Reviews!Only 4 out of 417 gave less than four stars!.....Then make your decision.I have been reading about this lens for several years and finally bought it. It is incredible! My current setup is a...Nikon D800E Digital SLR Camera - Set to FX ModeNikon AF-S Zoom Nikkor 14-24mm f/2.8G ED AF Lens USANikon GP-1 GPS Unit Weighing in at 4lbs. 8oz.Not a small package and not a lightweight package!For me these are not problems. They are a small price to pay for the spectacular images this lens records. (Also... I admit I am used to a large setup. When shooting weddings I always used a Mamiya 6X7 Pro with 110mmm Lens and a Sunpak 622 flash.)Think it over carefully and then make your decision. If you choose this lens you WILL BE pleased with the images you are able to record!It's size, weight, and price is worth it when you are viewing the wonderful images you created and can say… "I took those photographs!"

    I had rented this lens before and was so blown away with it. After receiving it I found that is was not focusing properly on any of my cameras. Had to fine tune the AF to -20 to even get close. So I had to return it for an exchange. Waiting for the exchange to to arrive. Hopefully will get a good one this time.

    This is a bulbous beast and I love it. I'm using this lens for everything right now, but it will be most helpful in large groups. I do wish it had some kind of filter to protect that glass.

        Comments about Nikon AF-S Zoom Nikkor 14-24mm f/2.8G ED AF Lens:

        The 14-24 is an outstanding lens in all aspects. It is certainly incredibly sharp, and amazingly free of barrel distortion at 14mm. . . . a most useful lens in architectural photography and, of course, landscapes. The lack of filter accommodation is a small price to pay for all of the other attributes of this lens. You can enhances skies and color easily via Photoshop.

              This lens is simply breathtaking. Sharpness, contrast, build quality and (lack of) distortion are all world-class.If you can afford it, don't waste a second considering other super-wides for your full-frame Nikon. There is nothing betterWorks Great on MY D7000 also

              Comments about Nikon AF-S Zoom Nikkor 14-24mm f/2.8G ED AF Lens:

              Great, really great. But you'll need to find a special solution for filters if you're concerned with filters.

              Nikon doesn't have a filter solution for this lens. There are great 3rd party solutions but they're a little salty, seeing as there's a specialised market for this specifically.

              It does a good job most of the time even without any filters. The zoom from 14-24 isn't much, but it's added flexibility without sacrificing "primelike" quility.

              It's also heavy. It evens out great on a camera like the D800.

              I wanted a wide angle lens and find the 24-70 was really not doing the job.
              The 14-24 is great except I still have to learn to "not" tilt the camera uness I want that effect.

              Great glass. Not as heavy as I thought it might be. Bought an extra lens cover in case I lose the one it came with.

                Most of my photography is landscape and I was looking for a wide angle lens. I started to look at the 16mm but a friend pointed out th 14-24mm. He hadn't purchased one but told me to look at the reviews. Most were very positive but some got a little negative about autofocus and sharpness. NOT. Really like this lens and would recommend it to anyone.

                      I am using this lens of Landscape shooting. It has given me excellent results. My only complaint is you can not attach any filters to the lens. Because of the convex nature of the lens the normal 77mm rings do not work. So I have to "fix it in post"

                        Comments about Nikon AF-S Zoom Nikkor 14-24mm f/2.8G ED AF Lens:

                        Just really began to explore this lens possibilities...but so impressed so far. Focused throughout the field of view, crisp and clear.

                        I rented this lens to try before buying. It's a wonderful wide-angle lens and rounds out my kit.

                        Snapped it on my AF100 out of the box and haven't looked back. Incredible quality. I think I'll go make some movies now.

                        I am a professional photographer, specializing in African wildlife. I use it to photograph wildebeest migrations in the Serengeti and pagodas, mosques and temples in Southeast Asia. The lens is super sharp, and the color I get is super. It is a bit heavy ( and pricey) ,but this is true for all top-notch lenses. Highly recommended, folks!!
