Nikon 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5G ED AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor Lens

Product Highlights
  • Nikon F Mount
  • DX-Format Lens
  • 15-36mm (35mm Equivalent)
  • Three Aspherical Elements
  • Two Extra-Low Dispersion Glass Elements
  • Super Integrated Lens Coating
  • Silent Wave Motor AF & Internal Focusing
  • Minimum Focus Distance: 9.5"
  • Manual Focus Override
  • Filter Thread: 77mm

The Nikon 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5G ED AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor Lens is designed for the APS-C sized sensor found on many Nikon cameras, but this lens may be used on certain full-frame models utilizing a special function of the sensor. As it stands, this lens will project an angle of view that is the equivalent of a 15-36mm lens in the FX or full frame 24x36mm format.

The primary user of a lens such as the 10-24mm Zoom-Nikkor will be one who finds standard kit lenses not quite wide enough for their tastes when photographing landscapes or interior views. An added benefit of wide angle optics is their ability to focus extremely close for a unique perspective on macro objects as close as 9.5" (24cm).

This ultra-wide angle lens incorporates some of the best of Nikon's technical accomplishments in optical engineering. Each 10-24mm lens is comprised of two extra-low dispersion (ED) lenses with no fewer than three aspherical lens elements. Nikon coats their glass with their own Super Integrated Coating that makes light transmission more efficient.

Focusing is facilitated by a speedy yet muted, AF-S Silent Wave Motor augmented by internal focusing design that eliminates changes in barrel protrusion. Full time manual focusing override is available with a M/A focusing switch.

Note! DX lenses are NOT recommended for use with 35mm film or "full-frame" digital SLR cameras

Two ED (Extra-low Dispersion) Glass Elements
For superior sharpness and color correction by effectively minimizing chromatic aberration.
Three Aspherical Lens Elements
Aspherical lens elements virtually eliminate coma and other types of lens aberration, even when used at the widest aperture.
Internal Focus (IF)
Design allows faster, smoother autofocusing and eliminates changes in lens barrel length for consistent handling.
Nikon Super Integrated Coating (SIC)
Enhances light transmission efficiency and offers superior color consistency and reduces flare.

    I use the lens a lot for shooting video on my Nikon D7000. I like it for parades at Disney. You can get up close and still get tops of floats in frame, easy to include all the performers. At Sea World you can sit down close enough to not have support beams in the way and include the whole show.

    One thing to keep in mind is that the 10mm setting does distort the view. At Epcot, the big sphere at entrance looks like an egg unless it is centered in frame. If you pan around, you can see the obvious distortion. Kind of cool, though, if you know it's there. Sweeping views with interesting skies are a really big strength, in my opinion.

    I used it to shoot a lot of pictures on a trip to the Philippines several months ago. I bought a screw-on 77mm lens hood at a photo shop in Mall of Asia. It shows in edges of frame until about the 14mm setting or so, but much better at keeping out stray light than the included lens hood. I try to keep it between 14 and 24 anyway to avoid much distortion. Most tests I've seen indicate that's the sweet spot, but I don't use the hood all the time anyway.

    (Please note: The included photos were downloaded from an album I have with pictures from this lens on Facebook. I didn't have them on the computer I am on right now. I don't know that they are as good as the original file would be.)

    Get the Sigma instead

    I bought this lens and the same thing made by Sigma. They were identical in terms of picture quality and functionality. The Sigma lens was $ cheaper.

    I originally bought the tamron 10-24 mm from a local shop and wasn't happy with it. It had vignetting and slightly blurry on one side of the frame. But this lens is sharp sharp and way higher quality in craftsmenship alone. Well worth the extra $. I look forward to buying my next nikon brand lens.

      Love this lens. Great focus control and image quality. Light-weight and not too big. Thought it might be a heavy lens, but no. Very easy to use and allows me to get real close to my subjects (within inches), without resorting to a macro lens.

      Comments about Nikon 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5G ED AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor Lens:

      Used this lens on a recent trip to Maine and got great results. Shot in difficult lighting situations in combination with graduated filter and was able to get shots I could not have gotten before. I'm using this on a D7100 and the handling and ergonomics are very good. It's a bit pricey if you're an enthusiast, but you definitely get your money's worth.

                I had a Nikon 16-85 dx lens and noticed I often shot at 16 mm. When I bought the Nikon 24-70 f2.8 to be my main lens on my D7100 this was the logical extension to go wide. I have not shot it much but the possibilities seem endless. I went and shot at UCSD last weekend and the results are quite interesting. Gives a new perspective for interesting shots. I don't really have anything to compare it to, but I am quite happy with the results I am getting from it.

                      Long time wishing a wide lens, and after many reviews, decided by this Nikkor.
                      Great for outdoors, landscapes and close-far effects (subjects closer and a wide angle lanscape in background).
                      Also great for indoor, architecture photos and stuff like this.
                      Could be brighter, to intensify the FOV effects, but it's ok.

                      Loved it, using as primary lens on my Nikon D7000!

                              I shoot inexpensive web commercials and house videos. This is a good lens if you are shooting house videos or in tight spaces. It makes items 2 feet away look 10-15 feet away. Hardly any bowing in the lines. I would suggest playing with it to see what focal length you need. I used it to video a house and the first setting I used looked weird walking through the house but with a little adjustment I was satisfied with the results.

                                Excellent lens, very sharp and good in low light situations as well. I switched from the Sigma 10-20mm f/3.5 and I am very happy with my decision. The automatic lens correction ability of the Nikkor lens with my D5200 saves me lots of time.

                                  I have used a 18-200 lens as my travel lens. There are times however that I just needed something wider. I am going to Venice this fall and I know with the narrow streets this will be the perfect lens to capture the glorious setting. I am also shooting some realestate photography now and the wide lens is just a godsend. Images are super sharp.

                                    I use this lens for interior real estate photos and landscape and love the sharp images it produces. It has less distortion than a previous 17-55 lens I was using, which was a pleasant surprise.

                                      Recently got to use one of these for a couple days and I was impressed. Lense feels durable and well built. Auto focus was quick and sharp and I was pleased with how the shots came out.

                                      This is my first wide angle lens. It has been great, the optics are great it is well worth it. I cannot wait to use it on an upcoming trip to Italy.

                                        I am so happy I made this purchase. I wanted this lens for use in interior shots as well as landscape. And I want to try it out during some wedding party photography. The price was amazing and I would highly highly recommend this to other buyers. It is Nikon glass, which is the best. You won't go wrong with this purchase. B&H has the BEST products and specials.

                                        After owning the Sigma 10-20mm, both versions, I find quite noticeably the Nikon overall outperform both throught the entire range. Both Sigmas in my experience produce consistently good results on the wide end, but if you want a good performer in all focal lenghts do not think it twice, not to mention 24mm is very handy and really usable,

                                              This lens is a fine piece of glass that works very well to create photographs with superlative perspective. It is extremely sharp when used from F/3.5 through f/8 throughout the frame. Even when completely stopped down the lens maintains very good center sharpness.I am very satisfied with the performance of this lens and it has become my primary lens for all landscape and street photography.
