The Nikkor 28mm f/1.4 was a legendary lens with stunning performance but was disappointingly discontinued. This new 24mm f/1.4(http://bit.ly/Niko24mm) is …

  1. Depends what you need. If you need a low light wide angle get the 24mm 1.4 or 28mm 1.8 if you need a super wide – wide angle then get the 14-24… (which doesn't take filters btw)

    They are both amazing lenses, you wont be let down with either. I personally would get the 1.4 because I try to only use f2 or below.

  2. …. So what? Nowadays, plastic is a really capable hard material. Especially if made on a pro lens like this. Kit lenses use cheap plastic. Pro lenses use hard and durable plastic.

  3. Is a better choice over 28mm which is prone to lens flare day and night among other inadequacies that are quite bad. This 24mm is the perfect compliment to your 50mm 1.8G (1.4G not great value by image saturation/sharpness comparison) and beautiful 85mm 1.4G primes..

  4. Do you have an idea about how this lens performs against the Samyang/Rokinon 24mm f/1.4? I am interested only in OPTICAL comparison as for my purposes autofocus and other mechanical feats are not so important. The price delta is huge, and if optically they are comparable, I might go with the cheap version..

  5. The Rokkinon 24mm f/1.4 has a good reputation. It is especially popular with astrophotographers who,want a lens that keeps point light sharp out to the corners. Apparently this lens performs every bit as well as the Nikon on that front, although other things such as contrast, light fall off, bokeh and flare control are not nearly as good as this Nikon lens.

  6. Hold on to your hats folks: Nikon have just released a VERY interesting new lens at a very nice price point, and lightweight too: the AF-S 20mm f/1.8G ED. 2 aspherical elements, 2 ED elements, nano coat, good price point too. Be interesting to see how that performs! Could potentially be ideal supplement to the 14-24 lens (or even alternative!)
