Nikon 24mm f/2.8 overview

  • 1Description

Ideal for landscape and travel photography, the AF NIKKOR 24mm f/2.8D from Nikon offers a broad field of view along with a compact, lightweight form factor suited to walkaround use. Its modest f/2.8 maximum aperture strikes a balance between its sleek size and being fast enough for working in low-light conditions. In regard to the optics, a Super Integrated Coating has been applied to individual elements to control flare and ghosting for improved contrast and color rendering when working in bright and backlit conditions. Close Range Correction also helps to ensure consistent image quality and accurate rendering throughout the focusing range. Additionally, a rounded seven-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality.

Wide-angle prime lens is designed for FX-format Nikon F-mount cameras, however can also be used with DX models where it provides a 36mm equivalent focal length.
Flexible f/2.8 maximum aperture suits working in a variety of lighting conditions and also offers depth of field control for isolating subjects.
A Super Integrated Coating has been applied to individual elements to suppress internal reflections, flare, and ghosting for improved contrast and color accuracy when working in strong lighting conditions.
Autofocus system is compatible with select Nikon DSLRs that support D-type lenses, and offers quick and precise focusing performance.

Autofocus is not supported by DSLRs lacking an autofocus motor, such as the D3000-series, D5000-series, D40, D40X, and D60, where the lens may be used with manual focus only.
Close Range Correction system helps to maintain consistent image quality throughout the entire focusing range, from the minimum focusing distance of 1' to infinity.
Rounded seven-blade diaphragm promotes a pleasing out of focus quality that benefits the use of shallow depth of field and selective focus techniques.

    Nikon 24mm f/2.8 reviews

    AF NIKKOR 24mm f/2.8D Lens is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 155.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice on a full frame camera I use this lens on a D700. It's lightweight, does not flair easily, has little distortion, and is sharp at all apertures. However, at f/2.8, it vignettes noticeably. The vignetting is gone by f/4. I have noticed a little chromatic aberration in very contrasty situations (i.e. backlit trees), but it is usually not a problem at all. It seems very nicely built, and the focus ring turns smoothly; better than my 50mm f/1.8 AF-D. Auto focus is very fast on a D700. On a full frame camera, 24mm is a nice focal length. It's about as wide as you can go without the perspective being too noticeable. Overall it's a compact, lightweight lens with excellent image quality.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great travel lens If you are into fixed lenses, then this is a great lens to slap on your camera before headed out for some street photography or travel photography. I use a Nikon D-7000 for travel/street photography partially because it is compact and not a huge burden to carry around on a day trip. Having said that I need a lens that has matching attributes. I did have the 50mm 1.8 fixed lens, but with a cropped sensor it was always a bit too tight. I find that this lens gives me the compact design I was looking for with a great angle of view and tack sharp focus.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good affordable wide Sharpness: Fine at the center, where it really matters. Borders could be better, but viewers won't notice anyway. Color rendition: A bit on the warm side. Distortion: Not a big issue, I've seen much worse. Flare and ghosts: Yes, beware when you have light sources in the frame. It won't be as bad as with a zoom, but ghosts will be there to spoil the picture. The lens is usable for night shots, but you should be really carefull. If you use it in day-time/dusk without bright light sources in the frame, then use it with confidence, you won't have any problems with it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light, fast and sharp In my film SLR days, I was used to shooting with a 35mm lens. I find it very useful and compact. So getting a lens with the equivalent focal length in this DSLR age was not difficult for me. I use this lens when I want to go light and compact instead of bringing heavier and slower zooms. Especially useful when doing low-light shots in tight places. For my level of skill and type of shooting which is more of shooting kids and group pictures this lens more than serve its purpose. Great build and optics. Nothing beats Nikon price/performance-wise. Never regretted getting one.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great lens for amateur photographer I bought this lens because I needed something to shoot some group portraits indoors in a fairly confined space. The lens performed admirably with only a few soft photos, which admittedly may have been user error. The lens is very lightweight, compact, and reasonably sharp for a lens in this price range. The focus is pretty accurate by my estimations and it seems to focus well even in difficult lighting situations. On an outdoor shoot I did encounter a significant amount of lens flare when shooting partially into the sun (duh), so that's worth mentioning. Other than that it's a great little lens that I can pretty comfortably recommend.
    Date published: 2012-11-28
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Lens 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A ' Must Have' 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome 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.
