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

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.

Superior product! I've been a Nikon owner and admirer for years. This is a terrific lens in all respects. It has no competition. October 23, 2014
Ultra Wide Lens for Ultra Wide Object Below is a photo of a 340 foot long "box" truss I recently erected for an airplane hangar in Arizona. With limited foreground in which to work, this ultra wide angle zoom lens allowed me to get close to the structure, capture it all, and with no noticeable distortion. The image was taken at a shutter speed of 1/320th of a second, an aperture of f/9, an ISO of 100, a focal length of 14mm, Auto White Balance, and Matrix exposure metering. October 21, 2014
Wow is all I can say The only lens lacking after decades of enthusiast photography -- wide angle. Here's one of the many payoffs for being a "Nikon guy". Cannon doesn't have anything close to this solution. We've had it almost a year and thousands of photos demonstrate there is nothing like this high quality wide angle lens for certain situations. Family gatherings, tripod in corner, capturing the whole room, capturing the whole moment, with amazing depth of field (some folks say it's not for this, more for the next comment, but I see high value in the indoor family shots that cannot be achieved any other way). Then there is the get right up in there for the high impact shot. Been working this angle (pun intended) for family shots, awesome pet shots, landscape / flower close-ups, night sky (wow) shots -- all with very high impact. This is not a fisheye lens. Straight lines are straight. It is awesome. Love this lens. And as I'm always quick to point out, glass holds it's value, camera bodies don't. Glass makes all the difference in the world in 30 years from now looking back at the kids. Enough said! October 4, 2014
My "Drama" lens I've been using this lens on a working basis for a couple of years, and it's quickly become the favorite lens in my bag. On a full-frame (FX) body, you can't beat the kinds of angles you can get for dramatic effect (see samples). The edge-to-edge sharpness is better than any other lens I use, and that says a lot because it's all Nikkor glass. When zoomed all the way out to 14mm, you're going to get some distortion, but that's to be expected at that angle of view. That's what gives you that dramatic perspective - use it to your advantage. This lens inspires a special kind of shooting. Practice with it to develop a style that normal lenses just don't get. May 29, 2014
Really Sharp Lens The first time out of the box I took a few sample shots and was sold. This lens produces extremely sharp images. You have to be aware of your horizon or you will get major distortion, but then again you may want that. It is heavy, lots of glass to produce the sharp image. As for a wide angle lens, this beats them all, get close to your subject and you will get very satisfying results. I have read some reviews about the lack of filter mounting capabilities, the colors are bright and vivid, just know your set up, and avoid having the light source at a 90 degree as it will make you metering difficult if in matrix. This lens is well worth the money if you plan on making large prints. April 10, 2014

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: 
I bought mine with extra insurance protection that, for a reasonable price, covers accidental damage up to and even including full replacement. That said, you do want to be careful when carrying your camera around with this lens attached.

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

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.
