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

Excellent, Bright, Wide Angle lens The Nikon 24mm f/1.4 wide angle lens is amazingly sharp when hand help in dark situations. Below is a photo taken at night, hand held, at a shutter speed of 1/125 of a second, an aperture of f/1.4, an ISO of 1600, Auto White Balance, and Matrix Metering. December 7, 2014
captured images are so creamy I chose the 24mm f/1.4G ED as my first serious lens when I upgraded and bought a new camera even though it was the pricier of the other f/1.4s which I would eventually get. i ran into some auto-focus issues that turned out to be just me not knowing how to use my new camera which the people at the store were helpful familiarizing me with the different auto-focus settings such as A, S, and C. ever since then, i had no problems with the lens focusing. i mainly keep my camera on AF-S, but occasionally use AF-C in sports. i now photograph with prime lenses and i have used the 24mm f/1.4G to cover occasions and sporting events. personally, my favorite subject photographing is my dog and places we go together. i love the creaminess at it's fastest setting and the sharpness in it's slowest. i enjoy the creative possibilities with this lens. i hope you have room in your camera bag for this lens or better yet, on your camera in your hand.

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

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.

Anyone experiencing severe coma in outer 1/3 to 1/4 of the corners?

I was impressed by the many reviews on how sharp the 24mm F1.4 Nikkor was and how little coma it had for such a super fast aperture. However, when I used it with my D800 for simple wide field star photography, shooting around 4-8 seconds at F2.0 or smaller, the coma was so excessive in the corners that stars looked like oblong drips or squashed saucers. This is not star trailing but textbook coma. I expected some coma but not so pronounced as to render at least 1/4 of the image unusable. In other words, the presentable portion of the overall field is really the areas as what would be covered by a 28 or 35 mm lens that did not suffer so much corner coma. Does this sound normal, like a lemon, or a repair issue? I have attached a video. Thanks.
