Joe,

Your appetite is insatiable! :biggrin:
I've never used it, but I've heard nothing but good about it (price being the exception).
Have fun with it.

LOL. Thanks Glenn. I couldn't pass this lens up at the price I got it for.
Good purchase, it was the first lens I got with my D800. Got really happy when I was able to use filters with it using the setup from Fotodiox.
I've been wanting this lens for quite a long time. Especially when you need wider than 24mm.

Congrats, Bro!!! You'll love it. I loved mine, but didn't use it, so I sold it. Be sure to take it into the clubs if you're still shooting live music. It will give you a great perspective.

Thanks Mark. When you come to visit me in NY you can use mine!!! :biggrin:

I can't wait to try it at a show!!!
Congrats, Joe! I've got the 16-35 instead but from time to time the lust is still there. I hope I can continue to resist :)
I was going to get the 16-35. The thing that stopped me is because I shoot concerts, and the 16-35 is just not fast enough when shooting with ONLY stage lights. And I got a GREAT deal on a US version, only 8 months old.
If you don't like it, can you forward it to me, please? :cool:

It's the one I'm missing too...

Klaus
You're first on the list Klaus!!! LOL :smile:

I should have it by the weekend, HOPEFULLY and plan on hitting Manhattan to try it out... IF it's not scorching!!! LOL

It's one of the lenses I use most frequently--couldn't live without it!

Now, it's time to add the filters for the 14-24! :eek:

Thanks a lot for that provided link Glenn. I'm not much of a landscape shooter, I never really have been. I bought this lens for large groups, and when I shoot my concerts. I might have to try my hands at some landscapes now that I have this lens.

I like that filter. I like the fact that I can put a UV filter on to protect the lens somewhat.

Glenn did a great job with that filter writeup. I was looking around for filters, found his blog and placed an order.

When I went to the link, it came up with an error. I couldn't find that filter. Would you mind posting the link where you found it?

Did you shoot it? Oh, sorry you mean you bought it.

Just kidding. :smile:


Congratulations on obtaining a fine lens.
