Product Highlights
  • F Mount Lens/ FX Format
  • Aperture Range: f/2.8 to 22
  • Close Range Correction System
  • Super Integrated Lens Coating
  • Aperture Control Ring
  • Compact and Lightweight
  • Minimum Focus Distance: 12"

The AF NIKKOR 24mm f/2.8D Lens from Nikon is a compact, lightweight and fast wide-angle lens useful for architectural photography, landscapes, environmental portraiture and many other applications. Its f/2.8 maximum aperture makes it effective in low light and when shooting hand-held. It provides a 36mm focal length equivalence when used on DX format Nikon DSLRs.

The Close-Range Correction (CRC) system provides superior picture quality at close focusing distances and increases the focusing range and Nikon's Super Integrated Lens Coating improves light transmission, reducing ghosting and flare. The lens weighs just 9.5 oz and accepts 52mm filters.

An integrated aperture control ring enables manual control of exposure in addition to lens' support of AE control through the camera body. For programmed auto or shutter-priority auto exposure shooting, use the minimum aperture lock lever to lock the lens aperture at f/22.

Autofocus is not supported by D40, D40x, D60, D3000, D3100, D3200, D3300, D5000, D5100, D5200, D5300 cameras--lens may be used with manual focus only. Be sure to check your camera's lens-compatibility information before selecting a new lens.

    Not much to say that hasn't already been said about this little jewel. So I'll tell a bit about my style of shooting and perhaps that may help you decide what is best for you.I've shot film (35mm and Medium format), digital (full-frame and crop sensors), both Canon and Nikon, plus mirrorless, rangefinder, etc.I've owned many zooms including the 16-35, 17-40, 24-70, and 70-200 zooms but have sold my zooms and only use primes (which I've used on and off for the last 20 years).If you shoot primes and don't need or want the expensive f/1.2, f/1.4, or f/2, then this 24mm f/2.8 will please you. It's small, lightweight, affordable, uses 52mm filters, and is a great performer.If you are shooting full-frame (like me) the 24mm, 50mm, 85mm combo may be all you really need. For crop sensor DSLRs, the 24 will be more like a 36mm (which is a handy focal length as well and would work nice with a 35mm and 50mm).I prefer the 24mm prime over the more expensive and bulky 16-35 f/4 VR (which is a wonderful lens). While it doesn't zoom nor get as wide, it is just as sharp at 24mm. The wider shots tend to be too wide for my style and the big lenses are always contrary to my style of shooting.I like to keep my photography fairly simple so that the gear doesn't get in my way of creating images. Just my two cents.

    This lens might, as other reviews have said, be great on film bodies. And it does feel well-built. But on my D90, on which it's effectively a 36mm or so lens, it consistently produced flat, dull images that lacked contrast and seemed slightly distorted. Grass on a field, for instance, had a persistent yellow tint through this 24mm; the same scenes looked more real through my newer 50mm 1.4g. And the geometry of certain objects seemed very slightly skewed... which might be ok for landscapes and non-critical architectural shots, but definitely not ok if people are in the picture.

    On the plus side, the 24mm does focus quickly and accurately, and produces sharp images. It feels good in hand, if maybe a bit too small to cradle in the hand as you shoot. Solid build -- made in Japan.

    My 50mm 1.4G lens is much slower to focus, but makes pictures that look more accurate and more vivid than those from this 24mm.

    I will miss the expansive view of the shorter focal length. But rather than continue with this fixed 24mm, I'll settle for the also-mediocre images that the kit 18-105 lens produces.

      Needed prime lens for night work and macro work with close up filter set. Lens is perfect, able to provide the wide f stop and appears clear at all ranges. Still experimenting and waiting for a really cold crisp night that doesn't have the Seattle cloud cover.

          I started out with a kit lens and found myself leaving it set to 24mm and decided to give this prime a try. I'm very glad I did. For landscapes, night skies, and even street photography, it's almost perfect. It is extremely sharp and has a hard infinity focus stop that makes it great for night skies. It is light and easy to cary all day. I wish every lens were this good.

              Used for landscape photos, individual images have good color fidelity and sharpness. They are wide enough to be nice images by themselves. Three appropriately spaced images can be stitched into Pans of about 125 deg. Narrower on a DX camera.

              The lens is small and light, a nice feature on the trail. This lens does not auto focus on a DX camera which might be an issue for some.

                  I primarily use 24-70 or 35 1.4 for group shots but purchased this lens for when I do not have my 24-70 handy and need something a little bit wider than my 35 1.4mm. I have used this lens primarily for group images and receptions and have been happy with the results. Not the best lens in the bag but then again if I wanted it to be one of the best I would have purchase the 24 1.4mm but I don't use it enough to spend that kind of money on one. Bottom line is if you need a wider lens but not ultra wide for group shots and such this is a great lens but I would not want it to be my primary lens.

                                This lens is very sharp wide open @ 24mm, it even sharper than Nikon 24-70 mm f2.8 @ 24mm.

                                  This lens is small, lightweight, unobtrusive, and a simply awesome. The focus is fast and accurate, and the colors are rich and vibrant. I have noticed a little distortion and vignetting at the very corners, this was easily fixed in post. vVry happy with this purchase.

                                    Comments about Nikon AF NIKKOR 24mm f/2.8D Lens:

                                    I know Zoom lenses are the preferred form of glass these days, but nothing compares to the 24mm f/2.8D fixed focal length. If you haven't shot one. Try it. I've been a working pro for almost 40 years. What was true in 1975 is true today. You need a 24mm in your case. In addition to the tack sharp 82 degree view per frame. You can stitch as many frames as you need to create unequaled panoramic's. It's a true classic that still delivers.

                                      Cheap, light, fast. Can't beat this lens. I use it as one of my walk around lenses when i don't wanna carry the 50mm. Enough wide angle without being too wide.

                                        This lens is great. Reasonably sharp wide open and very little, if any, distortion. The aperture ring is definitely a plus if you like using manual lenses.

                                        Great little lens. Sturdy and heavy. A little aberration due to the wide angle but great photos so far. It's sharp and pretty fast on my nikon Df. Don't regret buying it.
