Just received in and tested this 24mm f/1.8g and am very pleased. Tack sharp, accurate focus and great colors. In fact, it focuses so quickly and quietly I first thought it was broken. I had to point at several objects and focus while looking at the distance window on the lens barrel to verify it actuated.
I recently bought a couple third party lenses because of glowing reviews; however neither consistently focused, even with micro-focus adjustments in-camera, and both were excessively heavy for their focal lengths. The third party lenses also exceeded $1000.00 each so their shortcomings were a huge disappointment. Optically, this 24mm AF-S from Nikon is about as perfect as it gets out of the box, and the images are pro level, with nice subject/background separation when I want it. I have a D610, and if I used a D850, the images would be scary sharp. I highly recommend this lens. I do wish it were a slightly heavier in build, as that tends to balance with a full frame camera better, but I know I can rely on this Nikkor and that´s peace of mind. I´ll most likely stay with Nikon lenses going forward.
I read so many reviews, bad and good ones, a lot about focusing and speed accuracy. All I had so far were on spot. I had no single picture out of focus. This is the best close up lens I had. Amazing fast, picture quality, weight, everything. Mine was refurbished but not a point less than new (came with third party cap). The only lens which could beat sharpness was my 85 1.8 but still super close to each other. Other tele lenses I have wide open are no where close this 24 mm. You will never regret this lens. BTW my camera is D850 and this lens can get the juice the camera can give. Enjoy
I put it on a APSC right now so it´s like around 35mm. It´s a great lens and I am satisfied with its sharpness. If it could improve the control of purple light it could be even better.
This is a lens for all seasons. The contrast and resolution is extremely high as compared to other lenses I use, and the color correction is at ´´top of its class´´. No purple fringing was noted when shooting into the sun or around backlit highlights, and the contrast wide open is extraordinary. There is no haze or ghosts with this lens which is so common in lenses without nano crystal coatings. The resolution is superb right out to the edges just past widest aperture. The lens is quite hand-holdable with FF cameras at modest ISOs without the need for VR, and comes in a durable and compact package. It is not light but the optical quality is professional grade throughout its range. Quite a compliment to my D800s. Perhaps the most endearing attribute is, like other Nikon pro lenses, it controls highlights better than most, so you have fewer blowouts - this compared to many other lenses I have used over the years and those I presently own. This is a fine a lens as I have ever owned, and there are 8 other lenses in my current arsenal, mostly primes. Hands down this beats the competition and I look to use this for my landscape and street projects. Fantastic work by Nikon.
This lens performs beautifully even wide open on my D600. The images are quite sharp to the edge of the full frame even at f1.8 and unlike most prime lenses, the overall sharpness does not greatly improve with stopping down. I am surprised and amazed. Nikon´s f1.8 lenses just seem to get better all the time. Knowing that comparing a zoom to a prime is not quite fair, but since I have been thrilled with my 18-35 AF-S G lens, I did a fairly scientific comparison, and this 24mm is sharper across the frame at f1.8 than the zoom lens is at f5.6 at the same focal length!
I just received my new Nikon AF-S Nikkor 24mm f/1.8 lens and tested it today at the San Diego Zoo. Aside from terrific contrast and resolution, the lens is remarkably light, yet very well built. It is a very good addition to the Nikon family of fixed focal length f/1.8 lenses. The photo below was taken at a shutter speed of 1/320 of a second, an aperture of f/7.1, an ISO of 100, Matrix Metering, and Direct Sunlight white balance.
