Please show some shots from the 14-24. I was reading on another forum and a poster seemed to be somewhat against the lens...I think it is really a nice lens.

I don't think folks are necessarily against the lens. It's no doubt a fantastic lens. I think the issue is whether or not they would use it as often as any of the other lenses.

Filters seem to be of some concern but not a deal breaker. However, some feel that having a 24-70 and a 70-200 (both 2.8's) would give a fairly good range of glass to have as 24 would meet the wide angle requirement. (FX, of course)

Would folks like to have all three? Absolutely but, given a choice and allocating only a certain amount of funds towards lenses, it comes down to individual choice...

Fantastic picture by the way....

Its Nikon's best wide angle lens without question, therefore its the best wide angle lens in the world.

Nevertheless, its not a lens that I'd choose for landscapes, as "best" doesn't mean its the most appropriate choice for this subject.

14-24 vs 17-35 f2.8

I'm considering both of these lenses. I do mostly landscapes/scenics and I understand the pro cons are
pro 17-35 -lighter, can use filters, less flare, nice range on D700
pro 14-24 -superb optics. more WA


SInce I hike and shoot the naked 14-24 concerns me as does the weight. So just how much better is the optics of the 14-24? The more WA seem minimal ie 104 vs 114 degrees.

I still prefer the 17-35:

Serious landscape shoot from cloudy to cloudy-bright conditions.

A superb lens in all light conditions.:eek:
