The f/1.4 aperture advantage

The AF-S NIKKOR 24mm f/1.4G ED excels in low-light settings for new and exciting shooting opportunities. Nikon’s Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass ensures sharpness and contrast even at larger apertures, and an exclusive Nano Crystal Coating (N) reduces the lens flare and ghosting typically seen with wide-angle lenses.

Highly advanced optics

Nikon technology for superior imaging

Optimized for FX-format cameras but equally powerful on DX-format cameras, the AF-S NIKKOR 24mm f/1.4G ED unleashes the full potential of advanced D-SLRs.

24mm f/1.4G is worth the high price Love the lens. It is a perfect compliment to my D800E. I do recomment stopping it down to 2.0 for better color corner to corner (some vignetting at 1.4). Really becomes sharp from f/4.0 to f/16. This is a great landscape and interior focal length. Resolution is a good match for the D800E. I expect this to perform well with future cameras as demands on lens quality continues to be challenged. November 8, 2013
Outstanding Lens This is a great lens. Matched up with a D800e, it captures incredible detail and dynamic range. Combined with its fast aperture of 1.4, it is a very versatile and capable product. I was amazed at the colors captured with this combination (D800e and 24mm) while taking pictures at the National Conservatory and in the DC area around the monuments. I was able to hand hold the majority of the shots, keeping an ISO below 400 (100 for most of them) and still have shutter speeds fast enough to eliminate any blurring or loss of sharpness. When I saw the picture later on my computer, I could hardly believe the range of colors that were captured of the flowers. The fast aperture allowed me to focus on the main subject within a frame, creating a soft and very pleasant bokeh. Those shots I took using a tripod with very slow shutter speeds are sharp and have great color consistency. Despite the high price tag for this lens, I have absolutely NO regrets for buying it. It is a great product and can really show the capabilities of a D800e when matched with this camera. March 13, 2013
Completely an outstanding lens Unfortunately my current camera body (D80) doesn't really support the highest quality of this lens, I'm so amazed by this lens and the high quality of the lens, such as the motor is extremely quite and quick. I've only had this lens for a short time (sorry guys but only for a day), but the good news is that I've taken over 200 pics with it yesterday and now it's is clearly one of my most favorite lens that I have in my camera bag! All I have to say is thank you Nikon for making such a high quality product. Now I'll have to upgrade my Camera! December 17, 2012
A must have lenses for pros. Definitelly best lenses i have ever used in my proffesional life. June 10, 2012
The best lens in my kit, ever I have lots of great lenses the 70-200/VRII, 85/1.4G, 105/2.8 Macro. The 24/1.4 is the creamiest of the bunch! Of course, it's a difficult lens you need to learn how to use it well. At f/1.4 the focus is shallow but the bokeh is so creamy you want to shoot it wide open most of the time. It's not perfect for sure, focus is a little slow and the lens is heavy but it's just that good. Go get one if you can afford it! April 19, 2012

Answer: 
Yes it is excellent for night photography and the results are stunning. On the other hand, No lens is able to freeze movement by itself. What you will need is a knowledge of photography to dial in the appropriate settings on the camera for freezing movement. You will need to understand at least the basic of photography. Aperture, Shutter speed and ISO makes up Exposure. If you don't know, you can start reading here.
