The obvious drawbacks are there - heavy, does not accept screw-in filters, and expensive. But it is a great lens and deserves five stars.
And for those who like to shoot photos when the sun is out, you too will not be disappointed. For landscapes, it still kinda rules, and as a bonus, builds muscle if you take it hiking.
Undoubtedly, you are agonizing between alternatives for less coin and this lens, as many might. Quality alternatives might include the new Tamron 15-30mm f/2.8 or the Nikkor 20mm f/1.8G ED, but I have no experience with these, but have seen good work done with these (and I see a lot of night sky photography, as I am an Admin for two long exposure photography groups on Facebook). I previously tried the considerably more inexpensive Tokina 16-28 f/2.8, which is a good, solid lens for about a third of the price, but cannot compare to this lens, as it is considerably softer in the corners until at least f/4. Regardless, the 14-24mm f/2.8 is the gold standard for any ultra wide angle lens for night sky photography.
Picture quality is outstanding. There is minor barrel distortion when used at the 14mm end, and minor vignetting when used wide open at 2.8. However, the barrel distortion quickly dissipates as you zoom in some...and vignetting is gone by f/4. Corner to corner, the images are extremely crisp (as opposed to its little brother, the 16-35mm lens, which is horrible at the wide end) throughout the entire zoom range. There is very minor light falloff to the corners at the wider end when also used at 2.8, but it's hardly noticeable to all but the most strict pixel peepers.
Color distribution and contrast is well managed...I have never noticed significant color fringing (chromatic aberration) at any f stop, even in wide dynamic range environments. And, this lens does a remarkable job handling scenes with wide dynamic range in general...for landscape photographers, that's an extremely important trait, as this lens renders bright horizons/skies with darker foregrounds extremely well. In these situations, the image isn't oversaturated with colors that are harsh to look at. Instead, it tries very hard to render the image how you want to see it. It's rare that I have to do much desaturation of an image with this lens.
It's somewhat heavy, but easily hand-holdable if you so choose. For a comparison, physically its sort of a little version of the 200mm f/2. It's a bit bulky, but not long, so the camera doesn't suffer from significant (and annoying) front-tippage. As a result, its nice and balanced when used on a tripod.
The biggest drawback to this lens is its inability to hold a filter in the traditional, screw-on way. Instead you have to opt for an aftermarket filter holder like the Lee SW150, which is a contraption that mounts to the front of the lens, making it possible to hold 6" X 6" filters. The Lee filter is not cheap, so if you intend to use this lens with filters, be prepared to invest a lot more than just the cost of the lens up front.
That said, using this lens with the SW150 proves to be easy, and very rewarding. This lens absolutely shines for long exposure photography in landscapes and waterscapes. I've shot many a waterfall, rivers, beaches, and farmland in long exposure with the SW150 and neutral density filters, and it all works to perfection, consistently and accurately. On the 14mm ultra-wide angle end of this lens, the depth of the image literally pulls the viewer into the scene, a beautiful trait for landscape shots. On the longer end, the distortion levels out and you get an outstanding, wide-normal perspective that is exceptionally well balanced from corner to corner.
Autofocus is quick and practically silent...you can hardly tell its working, which is the highest praise I can give an autofocus mechanism. Manually focusing is simple and enjoyable. The focus ring turns smoothly and affords the photographer the ability to precisely nail the focus point, without any "drift" of the ring after you release your grip. The focus ring stays firmly in place if you re-compose after focusing.
The construction of the lens is top notch. It feels as if it's hewn from a magnificent chunk of composite granite. It's solid and rugged...easily able to survive a clumsy drop or two, and holds up just fine in poor weather condition.
To sum it all up, you will never find a better wide angle zoom lens on the market, anywhere. If you can afford it, don't even think about it...just buy it. You will have no regrets.
Update; this lens is the best lens I've ever owned. Shooting wide at14 mm opens up new looks on my photos. And it's sharp with rectilinear lines all the way through just like everyone says.
It's pretty heavy but not cumbersome like the 70 to 200 mm. The build quality is great like everyone says, there's not much original that I can say except that it is a superlative lens and if I were starting over again I would start with this wide angle lens rather than the 24 to 70 mm, then I would go to the 24 to 70 and the 70 to 200 mm but I went 24 to 70 mm then onto the 70 to 200 mm. I just think this wide lens is much more versatile than the other two in the unique look you can achieve photographically and I absolutely love it for portraiture. I'm not a professional just an avid enthusiast. The 70 24 mm and 70 to 200 mm take fine portraits as everyone knows but the 14 to 24 mm takes different portraits and they look unusual but nice in a different way that can't be achieved with the other two lenses. Being able to photograph my grandchildren up close and getting expansive backgrounds, I like it and it looks different, more dramatic or comical. It's this kind of flexibility that makes this lens special or at least one of the attributes that make it so special.
It is expensive but I don't regret buying it.
Even though I knew this lens was heavy, I'm used to carrying a heavy lens (my 85mm F1.4). But this lens feels a lot heavier. I sure notice it when I'm hoisting it around. I had used the 20mm F1.8 (I rented it for a week) and that lens was almost as good and it was far far lighter. It also took filters. But I still decided to buy this because compared to the 20mm F1.8:
1) this lens has much better construction
2) I wanted to be able to go wider than 20mm (mission accomplished!)

Indoor and interior shooting with this lens as an absolute joy, as is landscape and architectural photography. However, these fine optics from Nikon come at a price (a fairly hefty one at that for a wide angle lens) and there are some minor niggles; it's heavy and the protruding parobolic curve and size of the front lens means you cannot use screw on filters of any kind, including a protective UV filter so be very, very careful using this lens when you're out and about.
As others have mentioned, there is no vignetting and negligible barrel distortion. It is quite possibly Nikon's best produced lens and I am one very proud and happy owner.
Indispensable - definitely.
Forget all other wide angles - this is the one!
Les + :
- qualité optique : un piqué croustillant à toutes les focales dès la pleine ouverture. Une distorsion très maîtrisée, notamment à 24mm (la disto est même moindre que sur le Nikon Objectif AF-S Nikkor 24 mm F/1.4G ED) et les aberrations chromatiques sont quasi-absentes.
- qualité de fabrication : certes l'objectif est lourd mais on sent bien que ce n'est pas de la camelote. La qualité perçue est très élevée, l'objectif est tropicalisé, les bagues (zoom et MAP) sont irréprochables, bref, on sent qu'on est dans la cour des grands... et qu'il est conçu pour durer.
- l'autofocus : un avion de chasse, très précis, très silencieux. En un mot : efficace.
Les - :
- si vous aimez voyager léger ou être discret, passez votre chemin : ça pèse et c'est encombrant. La lentille frontale est bombée : pas l'idéal pour passer incognito et attention aux chocs en vous tournant...
- le pare-soleil intégré, même s'il fait bien son travail, empêche l'utilisation de filtres classiques. Toutefois, on trouve des adaptateurs d'autres marques mais ce n'est ni pratique, ni donné...
- il est un peu plus sujet au flare que le Nikon Objectif AF-S Nikkor 16-35 mm f/4G ED VR mais rien de rédhibitoire pour moi.
- pas de stabilisation, mais à de telles focales, est-ce vraiment nécessaire ?
Bref, c'est un budget conséquent pour un usage spécifique (principalement architecture, paysage, mode et presse) mais si vous cherchez un ultra grand-angle ou un grand-angle performant, voici la Rolls ! Aucun problème de qualité avec le D800, d'ailleurs la possibilité de crop factor à 1.5x en fait un 36mm f/2.8 plutôt sympathique, même si on n'est que sur du cadrage 36mm et en aucun cas une profondeur de champ 36mm f/2.8.
A ceux qui cherchent un bel outil mais ne sont pas encore équipés, tournez-vous en priorité vers un objectif polyvalent tel que le Nikon AF-S 24-70 mm f/2.8G ED ou le Nikon Objectif AF-S 24-120 mm f/4G ED VR qui sont à mon avis des focales plus utiles au quotidien. Ce 14-24mm n'est logiquement pas un "premier objectif" mais plutôt un objectif de complément, à moins que vous ne fassiez jamais de reportage ni de portrait, auquel cas il peut convenir.
Qualità ineccepibile dell'ottica Nikon.
Unico difetto: costo elevato e peso. È un obiettivo ingombrante ma sono straconvinto che ne valga la pena!
