    In single word, it's the best in its focal range. It might be kinda pricey for hobbiest like me, but the joy and satisfaction on every single picture that this lense creates is worth more, beside this lense is too perfect to get replaced or updated with a new version.

    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 haven't 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 don't 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.

    Some criticize about lack of traditional filters capability. I see this as a specialty lens mostly used at times when the exceptionally common circular polarizer filter isn't used anyway (sunrise/sunset/indoor). It's a pro lens, the higher price for pro equipment isn't arbitrary.

    I bought this lens to use for landscape photography and some indoor some wide indoor shots of the interior of the restaurants I work for. I took it Ronny trip to MachuPicchu, Peru and got some beautiful shots. Probably the only negative things I have to say about this lens would be how heavy it is and the price. Besides that it takes beautiful clear photos.

    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.
