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.)

Have used this lens a few months now. It isn't up to Nikon's fit and finish standards. The focus and zoom functions are not as smooth as I've experienced in the past on other lenses. It's not as sharp as I would expect for a Nikon lens. I'll have to try to find a non-zoom lens wide enough to do what I need to do. This lens is ok for a snapshoot type lens. And eventually I may find a setting for the lens that will yield the results I need.

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

    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.

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

      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.

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.

            from Austin, TX

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

            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.

                  This is what I settled on after trying Sigma 10-20 and Tokina 11-16. I found 10-24 the most practical range for landscapes. Tokina lens is really nice except for its limited zoom range.
                  Nikon lens is pricey but cheaply built however it is most sharp of them all and has best colors and contrast. Also the glare and distortion is best controlled on Nikon.

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

                        I've only had it for a couple of weeks, but find it very useful. While the ultra-wide 10mm (15mm equivalent FX) setting is wonderful, the ability to zoom out to 24mm (36mm equivalent FX)means that the lens can stay on the camera for many types of photographs - it's not a "one trick pony" if you get my meaning.

                        The construction quality is good (not indestructible), as noted by others, and the auto focus is fast and silent. Used with a D7000 body, the quality of pictures taken to date have been excellent. Overall, I'm happy about my purchase and hope to use it for many years to come.

                          I bought this lens for interiors of large buildings such as churches. It works very well indoors and is great for exterior shooting as well. Very sharp lens and get's good color rendition. I'm very happy with it.

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

                          I currently have the usual lenses for the D7000. 18-55 & 55-200 plus an 85mm macro also used for portraits. Also a 35mm prime.
                          I was really surprised with the limited amount of distortion with the 10-24mm. Even at 10mm I expected much worse. A quality sharp lense and a needed addition to my inventory.
