Unrivaled performance

A lens in a class of its own

The fast, ultra-wide-angle AF-S Zoom-NIKKOR 14–24mm f/2.8G ED is optimized for edge-to-edge sharpness on both FX- and DX-format Nikon D-SLR cameras. It combines the latest Nikon lens technologies, innovations in optical design and the rich heritage of NIKKOR glass to deliver truly superlative performance in any situation.

Engineered for pros

Advanced, durable and reliable

The AF-S Zoom NIKKOR 14–24mm f/2.8G ED’s rugged construction and professional-grade dust and moisture resistance withstand even the most trying conditions. Nikon’s exclusive Silent Wave Motor (SWM) and Internal Focusing (IF) technologies enable ultra high-speed autofocusing with exceptional accuracy and powerful, super-quiet operation. Nano Crystal Coat (N) minimizes ghosting and flare, and Aspherical Lens Elements (AS) virtually eliminates coma and other types of aberration—even when used at the largest apertures. The AF-S Zoom NIKKOR 14–24mm f/2.8G ED draws the highest level of performance from advanced D-SLR cameras.
Silent Wave Motor
Silent Wave Motor
AF-S NIKKOR lenses feature Nikon’s Silent Wave Motor (SWM), which represents a significant advance in AF lens technology. SWM uses ultrasonic vibrations—rather than a gear system—to focus the lens, providing incredibly smooth, silent and precise autofocus operation.
Nano Crystal Coat
Nano Crystal Coat
An anti-reflective coating developed by Nikon that virtually eliminates internal lens element reflections across a wide range of wavelengths. Nano Crystal Coat solves ghost effects caused by red light and effectively reduces ghost and flare caused by light entering the lens diagonally.
ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) Glass
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.
M/A
M/A
Select NIKKOR lenses have a focusing mode which allows switching from automatic to manual focusing with virtually no lag time by simply turning the focusing ring on the lens. This makes it possible to seamlessly switch to fine manual focusing while looking through the viewfinder.
IF Lens
IF Lens
A NIKKOR lens in which only the internal lens group shifts during focusing. Thus, IF NIKKORS do not change in size during AF operation, allowing for compact, lightweight lenses capable of closer focusing distances. These lenses will be designated with the abbreviation IF on the lens barrel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Muy bonitos colores. Me gustan los colores y los contrastes de las imágenes incluso en condiciones de poca luz, rápidas y con un poco de ajustes los retratos. August 8, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nailed the shot! All round great walking around lens, shooting D800 i decided to treat myself to a new lens. I do enjoy using this lens but when i shoot raw it seems lacking depth of field. also literally 1 moth after i purchased it for $2500 it now sells for $1999, im rather disappointed and thus 4 stars. Attached is an unedited photo taken in Hawaii while in a deep sea fishing trip. Shot with D800, 14-24 lens, iso 400, raw with -2. July 19, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Disappointing.. updated. I was full of high expectations for this lens, having read many excellent reviews. The depth of focus (depth of field) is huge, and almost everything appears in focus. However, even with RAW and a low ISO on a D800, the detailed definition is missing. By that I mean it pixilates quite quickly as I zoom into the image on my computer. So what you shoot is what you can expect to get, little more. For my purposes, I get more useable results with the AF-S NIKKOR 16-35mm f/4G ED VR, which is a more modern lens. Whilst losing some extreme wide angle capability, the definition is better for my purposes. The 16-35 also accepts filters, has VR, and is significantly lighter. My professional work involves taking photographs of buildings, and ever in the pursuit of the perfect lens (for my purposes) my next acquisition is the PC-E NIKKOR 24mm f/3.5D ED. June 12, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Disapponting Full of high expectations from great reviews I was disappointed. I get better results with my Nikon 18-35. The focal length is so broad with the 14-24, I don't get the fine detail that I get with my 18-35. Of course this Nikon 14-24 is an old tech lens compared to the Nikon 18-35. The 18-35 has the ability to add filters, and seems to me to be Nikons upgrade to the 14-24. June 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Thank You Nikon Great product!... Amazing sharpness around the corners,distortion is very low and easily correctable. Excellent lens!... January 1, 2015

If nothing else to protect the lens glass from the elements while shooting or an accident, can Nikon recommend a filter manufacturer that has or can custom make filters for this lens. I'd like to also know the thinking behind the engineering of this lens to not allow the use of filters for it. Appreciate it before I consider buying this lens with this liability or risk factor. Thanks.

Answer: 
The D600 is a full-frame body and the 14-24 covers it entirely. The 17-35 also covers full frame. The question is, which focal length range you prefer. I own both lenses. Both deliver excellent images. The 17-35 has a wider focal length range and is somewhat more capable during events. It can also accept a filter. Frankly, though, I never use "protective" filters and rarely a polarizer which doesn't play well with wide angles unless I'm shooting wet foliage. My Singh-Ray graduated filters and holder is too small for the 17-35 so the fact that it CAN take a filter but I don't use one makes the issue moot. I like my 14-24 for landscape where I have time to work in the extreme wide range and careful composition is needed. I don't have to work quickly during landscape shoots so the bigger, heavier 14-24 is my choice.

The 17-35 is more useful if you cover events, journalism, and weddings.
The 14-24 is more useful if you do landscapes, fine art, and architecture.

You pays your nickel and you takes your choices.

Answer: 
This lens is full frame (FX) as is the D600. There is no crop unless you choose to set the camera to that mode (and why you would do that, I can't imagine). It is the DX lenses that will shoot only in crop on a full frame sensor like the D600). I think this lens is amazing and prefer it to the 17-35mm.

Why would you want to shoot DX crop with a wide lens, in DX crop the D600 only shoots at 10.5 megapixels. If you must then go with the 17-35 DX

Lee ND slide-in filters and filter holder do not work on this lens (or any other filter). I'm disappointed to realize this as ND filters are as much a must for landscape photography as are wide-angle lenses.

Is there any way around this?

I would like to experiment with hyperfocal. Older Nikon lenses have the hyperfocal distance marks engraved but the 14-24 has none. Is there any tutorial available or perhaps Nikon could write a program that we could use to calculate the hyperfocal distances.

Answer: 
I believe you mean parfocal, a lens that stays in focus when magnification/focal length is changed.
1) I've never tested the 14-24mm myself.
2) Nikon doesn't say anything about it.
3) But several third parties over the Internet say that "yes".

Answer: 
Any Nikon lens with a maximum aperture or F-number of f/2.8 or lower would perform well indoors or in low lighting conditions. The 14-24mm lens is an ultra wide angle lens, so you will need to get as close as you can to your subjects. The AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II is a very good choice if you need to get close shots without moving closer and it's excellent for indoor shots. Prime lenses are also very good.

The ariticle below is about shooting indoor sports but it should give you an idea of how the lenses perform indoor.
