Advanced Nikon lens technologies

The AF-S DX NIKKOR 10–24mm f/3.5-4.5G ED is an advanced lens optimized for DX-format Nikon D-SLR cameras. From its ultra-fast, ultra-quiet Silent Wave Motor (SWM) autofocus motor to its ghosting and flare reducing Nikon Super Integrated Coating (SIC), the AF-S DX NIKKOR 10–24mm f/3.5-4.5G ED helps your D-SLR achieve peak performance in both still and HD video shooting.
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.
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 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.

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.

Twice the area of an 18mm and sharp straight lines Bought this lens after quite a bit of comparison for use on building interiors. I shoot for a local realtor and do a lot with interior panoramas. Tired of straightening barrel distortion on every shot from my 18-200mm, I decided to give the 10-24mm a try. Like a breath of fresh air. I have cut the number of panos I have to almost in half, and the results are sharp and lines are straight. Love it! August 8, 2010
nice lens! I was impressed with the performance of this lens.The sharpness even held up in very low indoor lighting of the space center. Nature shots had very good clarity. I would recommend this lens to anyone looking for a DX wide angle zoom. August 4, 2010
This lens is a must. This lens is great for landscapes, architecture and close-ups. The wide angle allows you to get close up to large objects, and still get the entire object, creating very dramatic views August 2, 2010
Love this lens I use this lens with my D90 and love it. Images are sharp and look great. It's a bit pricey, but worth the money. At 10mm it does bend objects on the edge as a wide angle will do. I see no problems with image quality on the edges as has been noted in some other reviews I have seen. I use this lens for both day and night/moonlight/light painting and it works well. It is my favorite lens in my bag. Do yourself a favor and buy the Nikon colorless filter at the same time to protect the lens. I'm already glad that I did! August 2, 2010
The only ultra-wide for IR photography A great lens for general purpose, the 10-24mm is also the best for shooting with infrared-converted DSLR bodies. I've tried all the competitors in this class and it's the only one that gives both sharp results and even illumination across the sensor, without the notorious IR "hotspot" in the middle. If you're a DX infrared shooter, this and 10.5mm are your only options for ultra-wide photos. August 1, 2010
This one is always with me. This lens stays on the camera more than any lens I have. The perfect focal range, up close in your face lens at 10mm, yet you can reach out a little if you need. If that does not do it for you, you are not close enough! I shoot most everything at or near 10mm. Wish it were faster but you will need to give up the zoom to get faster. Great lens! July 31, 2010
Amazing lens I am very impressed with the performance of this lens. The detail and clarity are amazing. I do a lot if hiking and in the past I would only take my 18-200 VR but now I have to take this one as well. There is just no substitute for for that extra 8mm. The first day I had it out I shot some pictures of my buddies new boat and did not have a polarizer for it and was extremely impressed with the results. It also works really well indoors or shooting large groups of people. The only feature I wish it had is VR (I guess because I am really spoiled by this on my go to lens). This of course would change the price point. In conclusion I would highly recommend this lens to anyone who is looking for a wide angle zoom. July 31, 2010
Just what I was looking for I wanted something wider than my kit lens and this lens is perfect for me with very little distortion at the wide end. It's sharp and fast to focus. July 30, 2010
Very sharp and well made As a DX shooter, I've tried several different third-party wide zoom lenses but was never satisfied with corner sharpness. This lens is a winner - particularly after three intense weeks of shooting in the surf, mountains and rainforests of Costa Rica. Very durable. Very good corner sharpness when stopped down to f8 (which I'd do anyway for depth of field) and the extra 2mm (beyond the 12-24) really helps. This lens will be in my daily kit for a long time. July 30, 2010
wide wow I was using the Tok***12-24 on my D300, with good results. However, I like to stay Nikon so when this 10-24 was available, I took a chance. What a great decision. This lens is sharper through the entire range, and the extra 2mm on the wide end DOES make a big difference. My D300 was sitting after I bought the D700, but the 10-24 has got the DX cam out again. I recommend highly.... July 30, 2010
Lots Of Love For This Lens I bought this lens when it first came out. I love the artistic freedom the super wide angle gives. It's fast, accurate, great size. Since this lens paid for itself with the images I have sold from it, I consider it a good value. I will agree that there's independent lens manufacturers that make nice ultra wide zooms, but nothing works as good on a nikon than a nikkor. Focusing is really fast and accurate. No nonsense. July 30, 2010
Very nice lens I took it to McMurdo Station, Antarctica. Very handy for views that call out for wide angle. July 30, 2010
Best Ultra Wide Lens Ever! I do a lot of product photography and this lens affords me a really close focusing distance to get that hero shot some clients prefer. It's got the sharpness of my Nikon 60mm micro lens. And for really tight spaces, this lens fits the bill with my D300. In fact, the focal length from 10mm to 24mm is just PERFECT. It may not be a fast f2.8 lens but heck...you'd always want to mount it on a tripod when doing interior shots with available light...right? July 30, 2010
Wider, Wider, Wider! If you like telling the story by filling the screen with foreground, subject, and background, you'll love this lens. If you do basic point and shoot, you'll hate this lens for the same reason: there is so much screen to fill. This lens at 10mm gives about a 110 degree viewing angle, with no fish-eye effects. It does not offer the vibration reduction feature of the more telephoto lenses in the DX series, and doesn't really need it since it is so wide. Get the nice HOYA UV-0 filter, no vignetting. This lens has allowed me to get previously impossible images: the whole bay and all the boats while standing at the dock, all 40 floors of the new building while standing on the sidewalk right beside it, the entire spreading maple tree with a nice up-close leaf in the foreground, wildflower close-ups with the mountain peaks in the background also in focus, images from inside buildings of the entire room that you are in, the waves on the beach with the beach sand grains visible in the foreground, a lot of the sky for night-time star fields or daytime cloud patterns, in-crowd people and action shots, and the list just goes on. Like any super-wide, it compresses the subject, so beware of people placement, they will look a bit squat otherwise. This lens seems to take a high percentage of my "Wow" shots. July 30, 2010
The World's Best Sky Lens I have been in love with the sky since memory, and nothing photographically captures the feelings of a special, expansive sky like this lens. Of course, I use the lens for more than sky pictures; but most images with this gem have at least a portion of that celestial metaphor for heaven. I almost purchased a fish-eye instead but am extremely pleased that I did not. The zoom range provides the flexibility to freeze a desired intersection of time and space in a more conventional lens length without having to switch lenses. The images are dramatic and crisp. Only minor vignetting is experienced when using a polarizing filter. This lens is worth every penny. It is a tool that creates joy in recalling or sharing a moment worth photographing. July 30, 2010
Wide Zoom Wide Range I've been more than impressed with the performance of this lens. I've shot excellent wide angle lenses in the past - 20/4 and 28/2.8 AIS from Nikon and Zeiss 16, 21, 28 and 35 on a Contax G2 and was concerned a wide zoom could perform adequately. A trip to Hearst Castle was the first test with dimly lit interiors with finely detailed walls and ceilings. I was shooting at f3.5 and 1/20 with wonderful results at 10mm. The wide zoom range also makes this lens a great "street" shooting lens. If I carry more than one lens, this always goes along. July 22, 2010

I want to buy a fish eye lens for my D3200, but found
Facts:
1- Tech Spec for AF DX Fisheye-Nikkor 10.5mm f/2.8G ED has Maximum Angle of View (DX-format) 180°
2- Nikon Lens-Simulator announce 106°40' for Maximum Angle of View (DX-format) for above lens,
3- Tech Spec for AF-S DX NIKKOR 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5G ED lens has Maximum Angle of View (DX-format) 109°
questions:
a: which of data 1 and 2 above regarding Maximum Angle of View is correct?
b: what factors other than Focal Length, affect angle of view? (I expect AF-S DX NIKKOR 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5G ED lens has wider Maximum Angle of View than AF DX Fisheye-Nikkor 10.5mm f/2.8G ED but 1 and 3 above do not confirm that)

thanks

Answer: 
Apologize, I found the simulator you are using and it is not giving the correct data for the fisheye, it is a 180 degree angle of view. Again the design of the fisheye is what gives it the 180 degree field of view
Compare the two images:

Answer: 
Angle of view is 180 degrees onth 10.5 fisheye, simulator does not have the fisheye lisyed (Iassume you are not using the simulator correctly)The 10-24 has a max viewing angle of 109 degrees. Th fisheye has a wider angle of view becuase of the construction of the lens. it has the ability to" bend" light. The is why there is a curved effect on the fisheye image.

Answer: 
10-24 is very fun when you take a portrait photo, but not good. 28-300 is all around lens not the best don't hope so much, prime is better if you want really good portrait picture. Try 50 or 85mm lens.
