Verified Purchase
I previously reviewed this lens. I now have second one and it appears the first was either defective or they vary wildly. Lens #1 came from eBay, due to Nikon's "we're backordered, but don't buy gray" policy. Naturally I wanted a lens with US warranty but Nikon US had none. As usual, they were all over Hong Kong but not one in the USA. So I bought a USA one used/mint condition to get a lens that Nikon would service if necessary. Cosmetically, the lens was flawless but something was amiss so please disregard my previous review.

Lens #2 is quite good or great, depending on what you want it for. The photo I see most often is a field of flowers with the lens tilted. I don't have much interest in tilting a 24mm lens but from what I see, its great for this and image quality should be super.

For architecture, the shifting is a bit of a different story. In theory, its possible to shift this lens 11.5 mm when the camera is oriented vertically. In practice, you can do this if the top of your subject occupies only the top center of the frame. If you are a critical user and your subject fills the entire top of the frame you'll probably find the top corners disappointing. (As with the previous lens, f/13 seemed to be best when shifted although f/11 was very close).

The good news is that if you restrict your shift to about 8-8.5mm the corners clean up, the illumination falloff disappears and things are sharp everywhere. If this sounds bad, it really isn't because previous Nikon PC lenses have a similar limitation where you can physically shift them further than advisable. (When the camera is horizontal you can shift as much as you want).

Mechanically, the lens is sound.

This is my second tilt/shift lens from the current Nikon crop. I use the 85mm for macro and product photography, and it's been a terrific addition to my collection. When I wanted something more for nature and architecture, I decided to head to the other end of the scale and go with the 24mm, and I've been completely happy with it so far.

In terms of construction quality, the lens doesn't disappoint - it's smooth in operation and seems as rugged as anything in Nikon's pro line. Feels like it's built for the long haul, and I don't doubt that with proper care, most of these lenses will outlive their owners.

Ergonomically, it's also okay for a tilt/shift lens. I tend to leave it on the camera with the tilts locked at 0, and it makes a credible manual focus 24mm lens. Because of the great depth of field on short focal length lenses, the lack of autofocus is no big deal...if you put your camera on aperture-priority and set the lens to f/8 or so, you can just dial in the hyperfocal distance and do very little focusing indeed...at this combination, you get about 4 feet to infinity in acceptable sharpness. Of course, when you want to use the tilts, all that changes, and you find yourself making a purposeful set of adjustments to get just the shot you want.

On both DX and FX, the 24mm is sharp, contrasty and capable of great images. I'd say you loose a bit of the value on DX cameras though - to me, it's much more valuable on FX bodies, but to each his own.

I suppose I'd also agree with the other reviewer who suggested that you don't really need lots of special instruction on using this sort of lens - just get out and use it, and pretty quickly you'll find you get the knack.

The first thing that came in my mind when I first tried this wide angle tilt and shift after buying it: "why didn't I buy this lens before???"
I always thought that these lenses were more appropriate in architectural photography, but they can do much more than that.

For landscape, it is the perfect lens.
First, its performances without using the tilt and shift are staggering. The sharpness and contrast are very impressive.
Then after quite a lot of trial and error, the shifting can produce near-perfect depth of field at apertures such as f/8. I use this lens on a Nikon D800, and the ability to shoot landscape at f/8 with perfect depth of field is more than welcomed on a high MP sensor that does not forgive a lens weakness at smaller apertures. If you buy a high resolution DSLR, what is the point of degrading its resolution from lens diffraction when shooting at small apertures?

Of course, it is also great to be able to correct converging lines with the vertical shifting straight from the camera without loosing pixels.

I also use the horizontal shifting for perfect panoramas. However one must not go to the max shift, as serious falloff appears in corners which is too hard to fix in post-processing.

The selective focus ability also gives us more creativity in detail photography or even portraits. But it is hard not to abuse the shifting ability!

I also use this lens when shooting videos from the D800, and the amazing focus ring makes the job so easier and precise.

All in all, it is a great professional-grade lens, and its applications are very diverse.
