I quickly realized the importance of glass in the elements as many do.
Moving to a 35mm prime and a 85mm prime (1.4) I figured I had everything I needed for solid professional images. Occasionally pulling out the 14-24 for that super wide yet large focal plane - it works great for tight conditions and shooting the stars.
Then I met the 24-pce. I wanted ultimately as much manual control over my cameras (D4, D800E) so the next logical step was perspective control. And this my friends, is the holy grail of "fun".
Not only can you get easy to stitch panoramas by just shifting, but because of the perspective control you can shift to ensure lines are straight from edge to edge - which is highly noticeable on something like the 14-24.
Finally I can take pictures that have solid lines from edge to edge, which opens the doors to so many creative shots from simple things like fence posts in a row to capturing the magnificent architecture/landscapes you want to be accurately shot.
4 stars because they could have done something different with knobs to allow the D800-E to mount with out first mounting to the D4 and rotating the lens to invert the TILT in order to properly slide/lock the lens to the body. This gets more disorienting when you can only rotate the glass one way because of the D800 hood, which keeps the buttons on their "opposite side" as you might be use to on a "D4" where the shift knob can be located at the top near the hood, instead of under the body. Equally when you try to loosen or tighten the shifting lock nut, when its under the hood it can be hard to deal with.
Overall the glass is very sharp and vibrant, it takes some basic understanding to operate the lens for a desired effect which might take more patience than most "ehem subjects" might have patience for.
Tripod is highly recommended, but if you are really good at placing that focal plane and spot checking a zoomed in portion for focus - its a possible carry around lens.
Other than the simple toon town characteristics people associate to this lens, its main function is to correct perspective - but in being able to shift the focus plane you gain some amazing new capabilities.
For example you can shift the lens down, leave the aperture WIDE OPEN, and you can get the rocks to the sunset in focus. On a traditional lens you would have to stop down to F22 to ensure the rock is sharp, and any tree's in the distance - but we all know what is lost shooting at F22 - so this is the major game changer for some of my creative shots requiring wider areas of focus.
All in all, for what elements exist in this optic and the capabilities - its a 5 star lens.
However, lens clarity needs to make a jump up.
If this glass does not operate well on a D800 because of focal clarity at the position of the sensor - then Nikon needs to come up with some better glass to make use of that pixel density. It has been disappointing having such an arsenal of glass and sensors - only to see massive blurring at the edges on the D800. So if this is to be a professional lens, it needs to perform in relationship for the professional bodies they are mounted to.
Hidden special feature: nice imbeded control blue sky. If you ever worry that need to spend money to get the best Circular Polarizer Filter, with this lens you may not need one. This lens can nicely stabilize color values which give you better depth of field without a filter. If you happen to forget to take filter with you, you don't need to worry. Your lens still can take beautiful picture with stunning sky.
In short, Nikon 24mm f/3.5D ED PC-E is a fine piece of engineering! It is great value for money.
