ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) Glass
An optical glass developed by Nikon that is used with normal optical glass in telephoto lenses to obtain optimum correction of chromatic aberrations.
AS
AS
AS stands for Aspherical lens elements. This type of lens utilizes non-spherical surfaces on either one or both sides of the glass in order to eliminate certain types of lens aberration.
A-M
A-M
A-M stands for Auto-Manual Mode. Thanks to a mechanism incorporated in the lens barrel, smooth focusing operation in Manual focus mode is realized in the same way as users have become accustomed to with conventional manual-focus lenses by adding an appropriate torque to the focus ring.
Rear Focusing
Rear Focusing System
A system in which only the rear lens group moves during focusing, thus eliminating changes in the physical length of the lens during focusing and enabling faster focusing. Such lenses are designated with RF on the lens barrel.

My favorite ultra-wide! I bought this lens to take full advantage of my D700. It's my go-to lens for dramatic wide shots. I love this lens because it's relatively compact, and built to the HIGHEST quality standards. I use a range of Nikon camera bodies from an FM3A and F100 to a D200 and D700. This lens with the trusty aperture ring works great on every camera. I considered the legendary Nikon 14-24 ultra-wide but chose this lens because of its much-smaller size AND the assumption that I'd mostly use the 14-24 at 14mm. This lens is sharp even at f/2.8, has controlled distortion and I love the way it handles. With this lens in my arsenal I've been considering selling my fisheye lens because the ultra-wide shots I get with this lens on FX and 35mm cameras are just as dramatic and way more believable. I love mine. July 30, 2010
Small, Lightweight I've always favored the wide-angle end of the photographic spectrum. The 14mm f/2.8 lens has great utility for grabbing ultra-wide angle shots, however, it's not as sharp as it could be. (I prefer my Nikkor AIS 13mm f/5.6 for its significantly sharper optics--but you pay a higher price in that that lens is significantly larger). The 14mm has excellent coatings which reduce the propensity for flaring that one expects with such a wide angle. June 9, 2011
Great if you can put up with it.... This is a fantastic lens -- there's no doubt about it... Just be sure that you need it, first, and second, that you know how to use it. If you do those two things, you'll love it. Otherwise, not having the SWM and having to switch modes manually, and having to deal with the funky "lens cap" design (it's necessary, but can get annoying if you need to take out and store this lens often...)...all those little things will really bother you.... Autofocus is fast, which makes sense for an ultrawide...and you can't beat the solid f/2.8. Overall, as a pro lens (and a Nikon, at that), it does what you'd expect, and then some at the cost of some slight inconveniences (unavoidable, however, as they may be). September 22, 2010
Good, but not great anymore I no longer own this lens, as I have replaced it with the 14-24mm f/2.8G ED Nikkor. This lens will produce good images, but will distort close objects at the edges. Just be careful whith what is happening there, and you'll be OK. July 30, 2010

Answer: 
Yes, but you will have a corresponding increase in focal length of 1.5x. For example, a 50mm lens will become the equivalent of a 75mm lens. I have a 28mm film/FX lens that acts as a 42mm lens on my D7000.
