"Highly Recommended"

Camera Labs think the Nikon 14-24mm f2.8G is easy to recommend on account of its constant f/2.8 aperture, professional-grade build and weather sealing, class-leading image quality and nippy AF. It doesn't offer a huge zoom range, it lacks a filter thread and flare can be a problem sometimes, but for landscape and architecture photographers there's simply nothing better.

"This lens is one of a kind. In terms of resolution, handling and even its resistance to flare and ghosting this lens is excellent, and it outperforms primes in the same focal range. Still, as mentioned before, this lens will not suit everyone. Those who use filters extensively will either have to change the way they shoot, or they won’t find this lens suitable for their needs. This is a shame, as such a focal range lends itself perfectly to landscape shooting. ... If you require the absolute best quality and don't use filters, then I believe the high price tag is well worth it for what is a truly unique lens."

"Best Product 2008-2009"

"... a superb lens, with an advanced optical and mechanical design that mark it out in the Nikkor wide-standard zoom line-up. Its minimum focusing distance of 0.38m makes it an excellent general-purpose zoom."

"... not the most practical lens, though the 24mm is slightly more sensible. It is a remarkable piece of kit though, and a very desirable optic for extreme wideangle enthusiasts."
