    Best lens for Aurora photography so far

    I have wanted this lens for some time now and tried making due with some cheaper lens ie Tokina and Rokinon but while much cheaper in price, the coma and edge distortion bothered me to the point of buying one. I so far have zero regrets on this purchase and it is allowing me to get some very detailed aurora pictures that I have not been able to do so far with the quality of the field. Though, it makes sense after thinking about the premium telescopes(Astrophysics, Zambuto, ASA, and RCOS) I use for deep sky imaging so one can not cheap out on wide field or you will notice it and it will bother you eventually. It is a heavy lens but then again most of my telescopes are at least 30 lbs up to 210 lbs so don't cheap out on the tripod either. Mated to my Nikon D810, my wide field imaging is producing great results. I know most of the coma and distortion can be processed out but I personally like to get the best quality raw prior to any processing. Something I have done in the beginning of astroimaging. So far the lack of an easy filter system has not been a bother since I look for dark skies so I do not need to use deep sky filters and haven't did any daytime landscape images that could benefit in a polarizing filter but I believe there are a few options though a little pricey but still a workable solution.

    Best ultra-wide zoom available

    I started a real estate & architectural photography business about 8 months ago. One goal is to show as much of a room in a single photo as possible, and this requires an Ultra-wide zoom lens with a focal length of 17mm or less. I have tried several lenses meeting this criteria, lenses from Canon, Tamron and even an Olympus MFT lens of nearly identical specs (translated to MFT format, of course) and the Nikon 14-24mm f2.8 is by far the best of the bunch. About the only improvement it could use is image stabilization, then it would have everything. But I shoot nearly 100% on a tripod, so I don't really need it. Most of the lenses in this focal length have big bulbous front elements, which have a few disadvantages including unwanted lens flare. This is where the Nikon amazes the most. It does flare a little when the sun is in the shot or slightly outside, but the others flare far more & far more easily. The Olympus is the worst in this aspect, it gave me flares from interior lights, making the whole shoot look like a JJ Abrams film. None of the others did this. The Canon 11-24 f4 is it's only worthy competition, but the corresponding Canon cameras are not as capable as my Nikon D810, so at $2700 ($1000 more than the Nikon 14-24), it's ultimatly a lesser package. These lenses aren't for everyone. They take terrible snapshots & portraits, and require a but of knowledge in order to keep perspective distortions at bay due to the wide angles, but if you have the need, you cannot go wrong with this lens.

    BEST LENS EVER!

    Def worth the price. You get what you pay for. QUALITY. Use this for architectural photos, and with it's 188 degree angle of view it is PLENTY to capture entire rooms from one corner. Some slight distortion (as to be expected with super wide angle lenses), and minor vertical issues but these can easily be fixed with photo editing software. Bright colors, super crispy details, and it's sweet spot is around f8, which breaks the 3600 mark on Imatest. Lens does weigh almost 2 pounds, and if shooting into the sun you will get some minor sun and lens flares, but also to be expected with a super wide lens. Love how it has a 9 blade circular diaphragm which makes the BOKEH beauteously round and not like a polygon. Also made in JAPAN, not in China like some of the cheaper NIKKOR lens tend to be from. So happy with this lens. So happy i want to purchase another one as a backup. lol!

    I've used this lens on several shoots since purchasing it late last October. My first shoot was of an industrial gas plant in Ohio. I was most pleased with the performance of this lens in providing good close-ups of my subject while taking in a lot of area with very little or no distortion. In my more general photographic activities, this lens has performed extremely well. It is expensive unless you plan to use it a lot. If you're going to use it, it will pay for itself quickly. Years ago when I first started out doing photography, you bought the camera with a normal (50mm) lens and a short telephoto. It did not take me long to realize I needed a good wide angle more than a telephoto. Don't get me wrong, I use telephoto lenses, too. I just find myself using the AF-S NIKKOR 14-24mm f/2.8G ED Ultra-Wide Zoom Lens more. Nikon has really produced some very good zoom lenses and the AF-S NIKKOR 14-24mm f/2.8G ED Ultra-Wide Zoom Lens is one of the best. Their unique incorporation of the lens hood into the lens and lens cap is excellent.

    Best Wide Angle Lens Out There!

    I had done lots of research online before purchasing the 14-24mm. In fact I even rented it for a engagement shoot just to be sure it was all that is was cracked up to be. Let me tell you, it is! This lens is absolutely amazing. The edges are tack sharp with zero vignetting and fish eye effect. There is a reason Canon users purchase a separate mount just to use this lens. I use it a lot for my real estate shoots. You can stand in the corner of a room or in a bathroom and open it up at 14 mm, and you can see the entire space. It is pricey, but worth every penny. I bought it at $1,999.99 and Best Buy lowered it $100 to $1,899.99. Because I am an Elite Plus member I went in and Best Buy refunded me the difference. A great reason to continue to shop at Best Buy!

    I live in Alaska with huge wide open spaces and Northern Lights (aurora). I have used lesser quality lens like the Tokina 16-28 F2.8 on my D800 and was pleased until a friend of mine showed me his Nikkor 14-24 F2.8. What a difference. The build quality is similar but the glass is by far better in the Nikkor. I was frustrated with the Tokina shooting wide open during aurora storms and getting soft edges and "coma- elongation of stars" in the corners. With the Nikkor 14-28, that problem is long gone. The lens is sharp from corner to corner and the dreaded coma is minimal. I can't wait for the aurora season to pick up. This is one of nikons flagship lenses that every aurora chaser should have in there arsenal.

    This lens is considered part of Nikon's "Holy Trinity" which includes the 14-24, the 24-70 and the 70-200. I bought this lens because I really enjoy wide angle shots. As you'll find in other reviews all over the web, this lens has two limitations. The first is that it is not light and the second is that it doesn't allow for use of a standard filter for creative uses or protection. There are some filters that exist now, but they are not standard and also not cheap. Think back to what you love about photography and what types of photos you enjoy. If you're like me and you enjoy ultra wide angle shots then you won't be disappointed with this lens. It is ultra sharp and built like a tank.

    Part of the Nikon "holy trinity" of 2.8's , this lens is built and works like the professional lens it is. It is very sharp at all focal lengths and has brilliant color. I have had mine for two months and have no complaints. Some people do not like that fact that there is no ability to attach filters. While I can understand I have not found this to be as much of a problem as I shoot primarily at night and these days everything can be done in post. This is great glass form Nikon and stands out as one of their top lenses for great reason.
