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.

                For several years I lived with an 18-200 for my wide angle. The 10-24 opens up a new world, is plenty of quality, and is just plain fun to experiment with.

                    I have only had the lens for 10 days or so. I decided to replace my tokina 11-16 with this one for the zoom range (the tokina is also very good and well built). I do not regret it despite the price difference. Very sharp and versatile. I have used it for fall pictures and it produces excellent photos. So far so very good.

                          This is the widest and best lens I now own. The pictures are outstanding. I cannot believe how much closer to the naked eye things look with this lense. It captures so much more width than any lens I've previously used. Just returned from Italy shooting cathedral ceilings and they look amazing!

                            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.

                              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 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 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.
