I've had the Nikon 24mm f/1.4 for over a year now and it is one of those "golden" lenses that performs in a class of its own. If you happen to have the 24-70 f/2.8 or even the 14-24 f/2.8 it is still worth setting aside some cash for the 24mm f/1.4 and here's why I say this.

Sharpness & Detail
=========================
Many lenses with f/1.x max apertures tend to lose sharpness and detail when shot wide open. The 24mm f/1.4 is razor sharp across the frame wide-open and at any other f-stop.

Focus Performance
=========================
Focusing speed with shorter focal lengths is typically fast in general and the 24mm is fine in this regard. Being a wide-angle lens it's not really what you would use for shooting fast-action scenes anyway.

When lighting conditions allow you can set the lens to a specific f-stop which yields a reasonably short hyperfocal distance. For instance, you can set it to f/11 and manually set the focus ring to 8 feet, which means anything that is at least 4 feet away or further will be in sharp focus. Great for candid street shots...in fact it is because of short hyperfocal distances that make both the 35mm or 24mm Nikon's a great choice for street photos.

Background Blur
=========================
At f/1.4 you do end up with razor thin depth of field which results in an incredibly smooth blur. Out-of-focus elements in the photo have distinct and pleasing appearance. With the DoF being as thin as it is, you will find that it takes some practice to get certain subjects in focus.

Color / Contrast
=========================
This lens produces remarkably accurate color and just the right amount of contrast.

I bought the 24 1.4 for the sole purpose of being able to shoot wide at 1.4. I dont think I have taken one picture with this lens that is not at 1.4. IMO, if one wanted to shoot at anything higher than 1.4, there are plenty of other alternatives that cost less than this lens and give more flexibility eg 24-70, 14-24, 16-35vr etc. On DX, the lens is equivalent to a FX 35mm 1.4.

The performance of this lens at 1.4 is simply incredible. At 1.4 this lens is just as sharp as my 70-200 VRII. Not just in the center, but corner to corner. After a week of using the lens, my jaw still drops everytime I look at pictures taken with this lens and I cannot help but marvel at the clarity, contrast and sharpness of pictures using the 24 1.4.

The bokeh is quite pleasing. It doesn't compare to the classics like the 85 1.4 or the 135DC, but it not bad by any means (see the sample picture I uploaded of a flower and shrubs to get a sense for the bokeh).

There is really only one shortcoming of the 24 1.4: chromatic aberration. You do see CA in in high contrast situations, but this is relatively easy to fix in post.

In terms of weight and feel, the lens is about the same weight as a Tokina 11-16. It feels slightly front heavy on my D90 without a grip and feels great balanced on a D700. If you are using it with a film camera, note that there is no aperture ring on the lens. This doesn't affect me because I use an F100.

The lens is not cheap, but my qualms about spending $2k+ are somewhat quashed after seeing the photos it can help me produce. Further, it's likely that a lens of this calibre will retain its value over the coming years so if you sell it after some time, you'll really only be out about 10-20% of the cost. Hence, the main issue potentially becomes one of cash flow..

I have owned and tried most of Nikon's fast (low aperture) gems (58mm f/1.2 Noct, 28mm f/1.4, AF 85mm f/1.4, 105 and 135mm f2 DC, 200mm F2 VR, etc), and this lens ranks among the best.
Great build quality, super sharp wide open at f/1.4, great bokeh (creamy background blur) and very low flare (especially when compared to my 14-24mm zoom). Less distortion and noticeably sharper than the older 28mm f/1.4.

This is THE lens to own for low-light / nighttime photography!

A Kid's Review on February 28, 2011
I have a d7k. I had an opportunity to buy this lens or a d700. I figured the d700 will soon be replaced and that this lens' price may go up in the future. I hesitated at first thinking that this would just seem like a waste on a dx body. Was I wrong!
This is my favorite lens! And mind you i have the siggy 30 and 50 1.4 as well as the nikon 85 1.4d and 135 f2dc. This lens is amazing! It is so sharp wide open, has great bokeh, has great contrast so even on a dx it gives that 3d pop that people who lust after FX talk about. It has minimal distortion (i'm sure less noticeable because of the crop factor). My only issue is the focus speed seems slow, but that is minor issue really because it is very accurate and wide angles have more DOF anyway.

My only fear is that when i move up to FX, this lens will be too wide. If so, i'll just trade it for the 35g and maybe get some change along with the trade.

Do not hesitate to use this on dx.

In few words, an excellent chunk of glass. Don't know technospeak, so I don't know the science that created it, just that it's fast great for shooting sans flash. And when you buy a 24mm lens on an FX body, you're getting 24mm, not 36 as you would on a DX body.

When you have no tuition to pay for, no alimony, no funeral preparations (you'll find my casket at Lowe's in the garbage can aisle). And you have a niece that will go nuts inheriting something this nice.

Too expensive, but I don't care. I love it...

Apologies for the non-review review.
