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.

Everything I expected from Nikon and more!

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

This lens is as wonderful as I expected, giving me a new view of my surroundings, and has instilled a real desire to expand my photo opportunities outside my comfort zone. I'm a graphic designer and use all of my own photos in my designs. What do photographers call "writer's block?" I'm really enjoying breaking out of that 'block' with this lens!

It is a bit slow but, very good super wide angle zoom.

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

Buying Nikon lens is a gamble, I hardly ever got a good one the very first time, but due to B&H excellent exchange policy I always finally ended up with one which was good enough.
I had 3 of these lenses before and while they were acceptable none of them was really very good. This particular copy I got is the best first time around and better than the previous 3 copies I had before. Stopped down to f/5.6 is acceptable and f/8 it is very good throughout the whole range.
The Tokina 11-20 f/2.8 is definitely a better lens and faster but very heavy and needs 82mm filters.
All in all I am satisfied with the lens.

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

I've spent a few years yearning for this wide angle zoom lens. Finally pulled the trigger and don't have a single regret. From shooting interiors to landscape, this lens does a fantastic job. The nearly 110 degree angle of view allows you to get up close to capture detail and still capture everything around the subject. I've only had limited opportunity thus far to experiment with this lens and am excited to get out and test it's limitations.

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

I've just started using this newly bought lens. It has a solid build quality yet easy to carry around. The small number of pictures I've taken are sharp and the range of color is impressive. There is very little distortion for such a wide angle lens. I'll definitely keep this in my arsenal. So far real nice.

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

I bought this lens for my D5500 & I am really happy with the results. When I purchased it the young man at B&H asked me if I was going to use it for landscape or architecture; fortunately in NYC, I have opportunities for both. Admittedly I'm still on the upward leg of the learning curve but so far I'm very pleased with the landscape photos & I'm really looking forward to getting the architectural shots.

We use the lens for travel and scenic photography when we want to get up close or show a broad panorama. We bought it to round out our suite of lenses now 10 to 300 mm.

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

    I really like this lens! getting much better interior real estate pictures for my clients. At the 10mm settings I do get the dark corner cutoff, but at 12mm it goes away - fine for my purpose. I use a Nikon D3300 or crop format camera and not the Full Frame Nikon camera so I'm not sure if that's the reason or not. Still all in all very happy so far

        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.
