Nikon 24mm f/1.4 overview

  • 1Description

Taking the classic wide-angle field of view and pairing it with an impressively fast design, the AF-S NIKKOR 24mm f/1.4G ED from Nikon is a versatile lens for a variety of subjects, ranging from landscape to nature to street photography. The f/1.4 maximum aperture excels in low-light conditions and also offers greater control over focus position for producing shallow depth of field imagery. The optical design features two extra-low dispersion elements and two aspherical elements, which minimize a variety of aberrations and distortions for improved clarity and sharpness. A Nano Crystal Coating has also been applied to suppress flare for improved contrast. Additionally, the Silent Wave Motor affords fast, near-silent autofocus performance along with full-time manual focus override.

Wide-angle prime 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.
Notably fast f/1.4 maximum aperture suits working in low-light conditions and also enables greater control over depth of field for selective focus imagery
Two extra-low dispersion glass elements are used in the optical construction to reduce a variety of chromatic aberrations and color fringing for a high degree of clarity and color neutrality.
Two aspherical elements are featured to control spherical aberrations and distortion in order to produce notable sharpness and resolution.
A Nano Crystal Coating has been applied to lens elements to minimize surface and internal reflections for a marked reduction in lens flare and ghosting.
Silent Wave Motor affords quick, quiet, and precise autofocus performance along with full-time manual focus override. A rear focusing design is also used, where only the rear lens group is moved during focusing, to maintain the overall length of the lens during use and to promote faster focusing speeds.

    Nikon 24mm f/1.4 reviews

    AF-S NIKKOR 24mm f/1.4G ED Lens is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 152.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply the best! We use the lens at a national laboratory with a very expensive high-speed camera that captures videos of fast moving projectiles (speeds up to 1000 m/s) composed of solid hydrogen at temperatures of a few degrees above absolute zero (-450 degrees F). The camera (>$) is usually set for the minimum shutter time of 0.3 microseconds. With this setup, it is difficult to have enough light to collect useful videos. Using this lens at 1.4 yields great videos of fantastic events, including the capability to evaluate in-flight integrity and impact mechanisms. It is simply the best wide-angle lens when light is an issue.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Only buy this lens for its f/1.4 magic TIP: Do not buy this lens unless you plan to shoot at f/1.4 99% of the time. The lens is magical at its widest aperture. That's what it's meant for. If you're gonna stop down, then you might as well get something much much cheaper. Again, this $-dollar equipment was designed specifically for the shallow DOF (depth of field) hence the creamy bokeh. BTW, the latter is just soooooo beautiful, it's addictive.This lens is perfect for wide-angle portraits, photojournalistic, environmental, night, concert photos.If you're shooting mainly landscapes, do not bother with this lens. For landscapes, you always have to stop down, which renders its f/1.4 capability pointless.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW! After receiving this lens, I used it to shoot some Film Festival events and a drama performance. I was able to get great perspectives on close-up shots and great full stage shots from close up. For stage shots, the 28mm 2.8 isn't fast enough and doesn't have enough glass for me. The 50mm 1.4 works great for close-ups but loses detail if you drop back far enough to shoot scrim-to-scrim. This 24mm 1.4 on my D3 gets me close, wide, and fast so I can handle any lighting situation with amazing results. I've been in business for 12 years, and I can't imagine NOT having this lens in my line-up now.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mind Blowing Lens Recently switched from Canon to Nikon. Had Canon 24L,85L,135L. This lens is MUCH sharper than all 3 mentioned at 1.4! Debated between this and the 35mm, decided to get this one first based on its reputation. It certainly exceeded my expectations. Wonderful colors, awesome bokeh. Will be using this as my primary lens for weddings and personal use on D3s. You can't help but take great pics with this lens. I will be using for scenic/artistic portraits and landscapes. 24mm allows me to get creative and close to subjects while keeping the vibe of the scene in the background. Get this lens and you too will be blown away.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Phenomenal Optics Wonder how on earth a fixed prime costs $? Well, so do I ... but as a wedding photographer who frequently shoots wide but wants shallow DOF for subject isolation, this lens is positively a godsend. There are plenty of reviews out there that go into far more detail about the nitty gritty so I won't try to recreate those works.Suffice it to say, this lens is stupid sharp even to the corners at f/1.4. Autofocus won't win any sprints but it's plenty enough for wedding ceremonies and even reception dancing, and it's very accurate. Sign me up, I'm sold.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth it I use this lens on a D90 and on film, mostly handheld, for portraits and PJ-style work. It's sharp enough for everything I've used it for, and has pleasantly high contrast at full aperture---quite a change from my old AIS 50/1.4 and 105/1.8. Vignetting is pretty strong wide open, and this quality leads you towards Barry Sonnenfeld-esque compositions sometimes (subject up-close and centered). I don't have any serious complaints about the AF on this lens---mine rarely refuses to focus, but my 60/2.8G does the same thing. It's about a one-in-a-hundred occurence with each lens. It is a really huge 24mm lens, though.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice wide angle fast lens I bought this one to replace my beloved AFS 17-35mm f/2.8. Nice lens , very sharp image, but slow focus compared to my wide angle zoom. forget this lens if you plan to make IR photography with it (hot spot). I also have the other baby from Nikon (AFS 35 mm f/1.4). same pros and same cons for both. my AFS 35mm is now my favorite for street photography. this 24 mm is more usefull when people are inclued in the frame, but you need to be very closed (20 cm - 12 in) from the person. I live in France and the best price for this lens in my country is 2149 (3048 US$ !!!). Thank B&H for being honest with photographers !!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from By far, my most favorite lens ever... Out of the many lenses I have worked with in my life... This is my favorite. I will preface this review with the fact I have grown very fond of wide angles, but I have shot everything from short to long lenses. I picked up this lens for the first time at a camera shop and put it on my D800. I immediately tested two things: sharpness and bokeh. Sharpness: I took a picture of a loop from about 2.5 feet away and then later looked at the image and noticed the dust on the glass element at f1.4. It was amazing. Mind you, there were plenty of chromatic aberrations, but some of this can be corrected out. And anyway, you can just stop down for amazing results. Bokah: I've never seen such beautiful bokeh on a 24mm lens, let alone any bokeh at all. All of these elements come together to make an extraordinary lens.
