Nikon 14-24mm f2.8 Lens Review


The following is a rough transcript of the above Nikon 14-24mm Lens Video Review
Hello Photographers, Tom here from Cameras Direct with another Nikon Lens Review.

Today we’re going to have a preview of the legendary Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8 Lens.
The box, the lens, the case, in all its glory. This is one of Nikon’s sharpest lenses that they make and again, legendary status.

The 14-24mm lens is the lens that your serious professional photographer will have in their camera bag, along with the Nikon 24-70mm and Nikon 70-200mm. These 3 Nikon lenses are known as “The Trilogy”.

So what is great about this 14-24 lens?
Well build quality for a start. Typical Nikon build quality. Their lenses are sealed against moisture and dust. They are made like a tank, this thing is incredible behold, very very solid, not a light-weight lens but again super quality.

The optics used in here are only the finest quality glass. Nikon also uses a special coatings on the glass to prevent flair and so on to give you a high light transmission rate.This lens is a f/2.8 lens right through the whole range. So it’s a constant aperture it doesn’t vary.

That means again in low-light at any focal length, this thing is fantastic and boy oh boy is it sharp. It is sharp at 2.8 all the way through the range. All the focal length, also give you out-standing resolution.

With a lens like the Nikon 14-24mm you are going to get some distortions like barrel distortion, but it is minimized with that massive front end of glass, you see on the front there.

Now look you can’t put filters on these but you wouldn’t want too. Why put any other bit of glass on something as legendary as this.

The lens hood is built-in and fixed, the lens cap is a slide on lens cap. Obviously you can’t click on a lens cap coz you can’t use filters as well. And they do come with a nice little lens pouch.

I can’t say anything bad about this lens, this is the master. If you wanna lens for  landscape, interiors, architecture, wedding photographers can use these.

I mean it’s just amazing.

If you have a full frame Nikon DSLR this is amazing but remember you can still use it on a crop if you wanted to as well. Nikon 14-24mm f2.8 Lens.
