The 14-24 and D3 rule the night

Discussion in 'Lens Lust' started by Candidcameraman, Jul 2, 2008.

  1. Both the 24-70 and 14-24 have the same 2.8 aperture but the 14-24 does the night much better than most other lenses out except the 28/1.4 (I can't speak about the Noct - I have yet to try it...)

    With the 14-24 I am not looking for shallow depth of field - I am looking for a usable night picture and it truly delivers shots after shots at lower iso than I would expect and I think that big bulging front element has something to do with it. A few grab shots - no tripod :smile:

    More 14-24 shots can be found here: In Wanderlust

    Yes, a highly technical explanation, "Big Bulging front element" ;) 

    Nice shots, 1 is superb, and utilizes that perspective the D3 and 14-24 combo are made for.
  9. Those are terrific shots of Paris!

    My old (new to me) 14/2.8 is also great for night shots, but there is significant vigging wide open . . . so it depends on what you shoot.

    Great shots. A friend of mine purchased a 14-24 and it also is really good at museum settings (aircraft at the Pima Air Museum in Tucson Az.). He sold me his 12 - 24, which I then sold and I regret it. Now I am looking for another wide angle lens but don't have the money for the 14 - 24. I am thinking about a Tokina 11- 16.
  14. I did not purchase the 12-24 as I preferred waiting for the 14-24 and having a wide angle lens is so great - The 14-24 is truly astounding.

    Thank you - I wouldn't say it is my most used for the type of photography I do but certainly the only one almost always in my bag. More so than even the 24-70 since I started the one lens a day trials.

    Thank you - the first one in this series was captured at iso 3200, the second at iso 1250, the third one at 2500 and the last one at iso 1250.

    Thank you Greg.

    Nice shots, the advantage the 14-24 has is the nano coating :smile: I love wide when needed.

    Ha ha ha yup - real technical (I have not one clue how it works...)

    Thank you, I do like the twisted perspective you can get with it.

    Thank you - it is well worth it.
