    This is a fine, general purpose lens.

    Posted by Stomper on August 1, 2010

    I purchased this 24mm f/2.8 lens for use on my new D300s realizing that with the crop factor it would be equivilant to a 35mm lens. Even so, this is a very sharp fast lens for a general walk around lens. I use it with a Nikon clear filter and a Nikon metal hood. Light weight, easy to use, fast, sharp, inexpensive. What more could you want. I give it 5 stars.

    Good walk-around lens for digital.

    As noted by a previous reviewer, this lens performs better on film than digital, but it´s still quite usable for digital. It has some chromatic abberation around the edges which can be easily corrected in software. The edges can be a little soft too, but nothing I would consider bad.

    Otherwise it´s fairly small, lightweight, reasonably well built, still has an aperture ring for use on older cameras, and has a focal length that works well on both digital and film.

    Great on film, OK on digital

    Posted by BenW on July 29, 2010

    I purchased the 24 f/2.8 AF-D for use with my F100 on film, and it quickly became one of my favorite lenses. Very sharp, solidly built, and an overall great performer. On a digital body (D70, D300) the 24mm shows red/blue chromatic aberration in the corners which is easily correctable in software. Center sharpness is excellent, and edges are good to very good in sharpness. 35mm equivalent angle of view on a DX body is not as useful for wide-angle landscapes.
