I am photography enthusiast and love wide angle HDR photography.After using fish eye ultra wide angle lens for a while, I was badly looking for a wide angle lens with high contrast, high resolution (in MTF Curves lingo) gear. I was ready to compromise on extra wider angle that fish eye provides.I zeroed down on this lens after comparing it with AF-S NIKKOR 14-24mm f/2.8G ED. Latter looked bit pricey and starting f-stop of 14mm kind of turned me down.I used my lens on a road trip to Las Vegas and Page, Arizona and throughly enjoyed photographing. I did shoot dazzling night cityscapes of Vegas as well as vivid colors of natural wonders like Horseshoe bend, Rainbow bridge monument and Antelope canyon. I give 100% marks to the gear. I am a delighted end user.Thanks to Nikon for making such a fabulous lens and big thank to B&H for shipping it to me just in time.

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.

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

      If you're a DX shooter and want a versatile wide angle lens that is super sharp, this is the lens for you. I am not a fan of off-brand equipment as I have never had good success with it. When preparing for this purchase, I read reviews, tested other brands, and talked with friends and ultimately decided to continue my trend of purchasing only Nikkor lenses. I am not disappointed! The lens focuses very quickly, is super sharp (with the exception of corner issues which is universal to wide angle lenses), is well made, and brings a whole new world of versatility to your creativity. I love the consistency of the focus/zoom setup that is the same for every medium-quality Nikon lens. I also love the M/MA focus override (confusing nomenclature but wonderful function) that allows for focus fine-tuning. With a wide angle lens and creative landscape and nature photography, this is a real plus. I would definitely buys this lens again in a heartbeat if something happened to it.

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

      I had so looked forward to this lens which has been highly recommended for the crop-sensor Nikon 7100. It took two people to attach it to my camera. Which was very scary. Two people to take it back off. What a great disappointment! I called B&H immediately and we determined that the tolerance must be off or it might have just passed quality control without being properly tested. B&H e-mailed the proper return label and info and within a week I now have a lens that attaches easily and is ready for use. I have ordered a number of items from them over the years and find that customer service is excellent and I am happy with the products.

        This is a great lens. I had tested (for myself) the Nikon and the Sigma, and this was the better lens. I spent more money for it, but I am serious about getting great, not just good images. The sigma was okay, but was not on this level from the two specimens I had.

            I am an Interior Designer and I have been searching for a camera lens that would take great photos of my work. This lens is perfect for showcasing my work. As soon as I got it in the mail I started taking photos of my room and couldn't believe how well they came out. It has a wider view frame and that allows more of the space to be seen. As a result a great photo to put in my portfolio.

              Bought this lens for my D5500, the two work perfect together.
              Just got back from a trip to the Eastern Sierras, and could not believe the beautiful pictures I got.
              I never owned this wide of lens before, but I'd never go without it again.
              Great for landscape photography.

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

                Ive used this lens for almost a year now on my D5100 and have really enjoyed it. I even tried using on a rented D750 and was happy with it then. Of course with it on the D750 there are serious amounts of vignetting up until about 20mm. However on the 5100 there isnt any. I would consider this worth the price for an entry level wide angle. Its quick, its sharp, and its smooth. My most recent use was shooting the Perseid meteor shower in Rainer national park where it struggled a bit on the D5100. It was extremely dark and had trouble gathering enough light at 3.5 and 6400 ISO with a 25 second shutter. I ended up with a lot of noise in my pictures but the shots otherwise came out well. In any other situation it works great. Its much higher quality than the Tamron one. See pictures.

                      I ordered this lens for a trip to the southwest after reading many reviews. I tried it out and it lived up to all the great reviews I read. I especially loved the deep color in my shots. However, after thinking about my purchase, I decided this is a lens I would not use enough to justify the purchase price. One of the places I had planned to use it is the Grand Canyon. I read somewhere that a really wide angle lens is not a good choice for the canyon because it makes the landscape seem father back and, therefore, does not give as much detail. I called B&H to get information on the return of this lens. Luke, the person I talked with, could not have been nicer. That's why I will always use B&H for my purchases.

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

                          I needed a lens that could go wider than my current 35mm f/1.8G lens and this is it. All too often I had to "settle" for a partial subject and this was really irritating me. I had to use my cell phone for really wide shots. No longer.

                          The 10-24 mm lens is excellent for landscapes. Now I can easily get a whole mountain range, field, or lake without having to sacrifice parts of the subject.

                          It can also get interiors nicely if you don't mind that fisheye look. There are shots that I want the entire room (having a fisheye look) rather than only one wall when using the 35 mm. You just have to accept the f stop limitation of this lens.

                          You really need to spend a little more and get a polarizing filter with this lens (B&W MRC Nano). Getting five waterfalls and an alpine lake at Glacier National Park in one shot looks even better when the lake has no glare and the sky has more blue.

                            I used this lens for taking real estate photos. It works great.

                              Great for big landscapes and unique perspectives. I've only had it a short time, but I am constrantly finding interesting angles with this lens.

                                  I have wanted to add a wide angle lens to my photo bag for a few years. I shoot my own interiors. I am loving having this in my bag!
