    Great lens for the price

    This is a great wide angle zoom lens for the price. Although this is a DX lens, it works well on my Nikon D810. I use it primarily for real estate property when I really need that wide angle view that my other lenses don't cover. Now this is not a pro lens. Don't expect the same quality or build as the gold ring lenses. It does feel plasticky and light, but don't think for a second the glass isn't clear, clean and sharp. I am very impressed with this lens. My clients are very happy with the pics I provide and if it didn't preform well I wouldn't get the jobs. This lens does take some time to understand how it works, it's limitations and strengths. 10-24mm can really distort what you're photographing. This could be an artistic choice or a nightmare if you're unfamiliar with the curves associated with this lens at it's widest angles. I've attached two pics I took with the lens at 10mm. If you're looking for a great wide angle zoom, then this is a great buy! Play with it, see what it does, get familiar with its capabilities and have fun with big foregrounds and extending your depth on the background.

    My favorite lens

    This is by far my favorite Nikkor lens of the five I own. It shouldn’t be the first lens you purchase to start your kit (that would be the incredibly versatile 18-200, or better yet 18-300), but it will open up your photographic possibilities if you can save up for it. This lens is solidly built and creates crisp, beautiful images (online research shows less distortion at the extremes than other lens brands). 10mm might not seem that much more significant than 12mm or 14mm, but trust me - it is. While I got this lens partially for landscapes, where it really shines is capturing the whole scene and telling a more complete story when photographing kids interacting or small interior spaces. If you’re like me, you want to capture as much of the narrative as possible, and you can always crop later in your editing software. This lens definitely allows you to add energy and real estate to your shots. Just be aware that, like all wide-angle lenses, you will get some perspective distortion if you shoot at an angle (from above, below, or very close to your subject). Used intentionally, though, this can create some fun and unique photos. Also, you will want to invest in a flash that mounts to your camera, as the built-in flash does not sit high enough and will cast a shadow. Overall, a solid investment! I absolutely love this lens.

    Panoramic Perfection

    I love, love, love this lens! To-date, it remains the most expensive lens I've ever purchased, and worth every penny. Almost every photo is razor-sharp, and that's before post-processing. The picture I've included was shot on 2015-06-07 at Lake Harriett in Minneapolis, Minnesota. It includes dozens of square miles of sky, the Lake Harriett band shell, and the entire Minneapolis skyline... best of all, this was shot at 24mm-- imagine how much more could have been included at 10mm? If you're looking for the lens that will get 200 people together at a family reunion in one shot, capture a 900 foot cruise ship, or photograph the entire Empire State Building there are many lenses that will do it... but if you're looking to take that shot without having to walk backwards hundreds of feet and still bring in the image crisply, this is a great choice. I cannot recommend the 18-24mm highly enough!

    I had read professional reviews that the durability was not quite great. However, after using it on a recent trip to the north east coast, it will be one of the lens that will accompany me all of the time. The first time I used it, I got the WOW reaction. I was able to go to museums and get a complete image standing only 10 feet away from the display. Landscape photos were just as breathtaking. I had purchased a filter to protect the lens, but I found my shots were so much clearer sans filter. Unless you really need a filter, the Nikon lens cover is just fine. It is definitely worth the price if you really want true wide angle shots. I am shooting with a Nikon D7100, and am pleased with both products. I gave it 4 stars because it looks cheap. But, after using it, what matters is the shot. The quality of the shot makes up for the appearance of the lens. I highly recommend this lens.

    Great Macro Lens for a DX Camera Body

    This is an excellent dx lens for any of the Nikon dx camera bodies. There is no substitute for the 10mm end and the zoom to 24mm allows you to get just the right shot no matter the subject. Forget the fisheye lenses and get this one. Forget the 12-24mm because you're buying a macro to shoot at the widest opening so you'll eventually regret not getting this one. Build quality is solid and the glass is Nikon glass which is both clear and crisp. This lens will hold its value for years to come and will fit Nikon camera bodies of the future. Highly recommend getting the Nikon brand neutral filter to go along with this.

    Amazing Ultra-Wide Angle

    Pros - The lens is very sharp, very wide, and ghost/flares are rarely an issue!! So, no complaints there. Cons- However, it does have a hefty dose of distortion when zoomed the whole way out. Also, doesn't feel very durable - I'm worried if I drop it it's going to shatter into a million pieces. Recommendation: I would say this is a perfect ultra-wide for hobbyists & enthusiasts (affordable and will give you a professional look). I use it primarily for real estate and landscapes; it works exceptionally well for both. The sharpness helps a lot, the distortion is easily corrected in DxO module, and I never have to worry about ghosts or flares. Conclusion: If you're looking for an affordable ultra-wide lens for your DX; I'd say this is absolutely, hands down your best bet.

    Still feeling out the lens.

    Ive had it for about a week. So far I love it. It gets so many things in the shot it is ridiculous. The first day I kept going from 18 to 10mm just to see the difference; I was surprised every time. Ive noticed that if the item isn't close the majority of the time the lens focuses on infinity or around that. If the item is close (1-3 feet away) it'll focus away from infinity. The sense works great in low light with no moving objects though I haven't tried it with moving objects (people) in low light. So far this lens is great. I will continue to feel it out. If i see something I don't like I will edit this post!

    I have shot various Tokina, Canon, and Nikon ultra-wides over the years and this is my second time purchasing this particular lens (trying a different retailer this time). Still can't compare to others which sell for less. I gave it a second try because I really wanted that "10mm" on the wide end. But in A/B testing, over time, it looks like its image quality is just not on par with competing models (which also cost less). But if you shoot .JPG only, post to social media, and never pixel peep, then it should satisfy. This, after spending some time with it: for serious hobbyists, enthusiasts I would go for something else.

    I purchased this lens for indoor events where focus distance was limited. This lens worked out better than expected. I later started taking some macro shots for a clients inventory for their webpage and it was perfect. It also takes a great wide angle group shot for parties both indoors as well as outdoors. If you want to get some great family group shots, you will not be disappointed as well as candid shots during parties in confined spaces. Definitely this sense is among my preferred lenses now when going anywhere and everywhere.

    I wanted a wide lens for nature shots as I traveled. This was a great lens for the price. I did not have any problems with it and I am not a professional photographer or know enough about cameras to have any complaints. Yes it was expensive but I wanted a lens that would capture wide scenery images. You do get some distortion especially on the sides so you must be careful if photographing people. I shopped around and this was the best priced lens I could find and did anything I needed it to do. Slightly heavy but this is to be expected given its size.

    I never thought the picture taking experience would be as thrilling as it is with this lens. Pictures are very clear and crisp. You don't necessarily need to shoot large (wide) subjects. The 24mm is a nice reach but there are times I wish it was longer...but I just move closer to my subject. Large aperture is much appreciated in low light conditions such as in door parties. It seems to be well built but I am not a pro but I have a feeling it will last me a long long time. I have nothing but praise for this lens and I do recommend this to anyone.

    This lens fills out the wide end of the spectrum for my digital Nikon. Since having to go from my old film standby Nikons, My old 20 mm lens was sorely missed as even though I can use it with my Digital camera, it wasn't as wide angle as it was with the film cameras. This 10-24 mm Zoom lens bring wide , nondistorted lines to my digital photography. It is great for landscape and architecture applications. The ED lens material allows for stunning night time images. Great lens for the money.

    I did a tremendous amount of research on wide-angle lens is prior to the purchase. I opted to spend the money on this high-quality lens as opposed to the less expensive alternatives. My first use was on a trip to Nevada, California and Arizona. The lens takes amazing panoramic pictures. We visited the Grand Canyon, Red Rock Canyon and The Hoover Dam. The pictures are fabulous.

    It truly is an ultra wide lens, perfect for landscapes or large group photos. There is no going wrong when purchasing this lens since it does not warp or other wise alter your subject in anyway. Some may disagree, but that may be due to the fact that some cameras need their firmware updated to reduce this effect. I have yet to use this lens to its full potential, and yet I am completely pleased with the performance of this lens.

    The picture quality is very clear and it is fantastic for vloging. Not great for portrait for talker fee it tends to make their nose look large. It is very good at putting a subject in a scene but it is a poor all purpose lens. If you try to take any landscape photos or any scenes larger than a backyard the features tend to be quite small. If you know how to use a wide angle lens and its limitations it is a fantastic lens.

    Widest DX zoom lens available

    This is a great lens and I am very happy with purchase. Note: if you think you're going to need to use flash, remember to use/buy a hot-shoe attached speed-light. This is due to the built-in flash being too low to get around the wide barrel of this lens (even without the hood attached)... resulting in a large shadow in the frame.

    Still getting used to the wide angle aspect. The greatness of this lens really shows up when shooting in wide open areas. Heading out west in a few weeks can't wait to try it out in Arizona and Utah.

    A recent trip to the Grand Canyon showed the limitations of the 18-55 zoom and I knew I needed the 10-24mm ultra-wide Nikon Lens and it has fully lived up to its design. Very sharp and no distortion when shot level. Color and contrast from this lens is superb.

    Recently bought this lens for a trip to London. Still in London and the lens has been amazing so far. I even took a nasty spill in the middle of the road directly on my camera and the lens remains unscathed. Whoo! Quality pics even for a beginner like me. My pics look totally professional. Totally worth the investment.

    I am a novice photographer with a DSL camera so I think this is a great value for me. All the pictures I've taken with this lens have come out great! If you're a professional photographer you might want to invent more money in a better lens but this is a great value for the money.
