Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8 Review

The Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8 lens is absolutely my favorite lens, I literally take it with me on every trip and it's probably the lens that you'll see attached to my camera. The 14-24mm Lens is an Ultra-Wide lens, The only way to get a sense of how wide this lens is, is to try it on a full frame body.

The first thing that will catch your eye is the humongous front lens, the way that this lens was engineered is awesome that you'll barely are not even notice any vignetting even at 14mm. The front lens is also Nano coated which help reduce lens flares from lights.

The thing that makes this lens so special is because of its large f/2.8 aperture which is very helpful in low light situations

A huge front lens also has its disadvantages, its a dust magnet, that's why I would highly recommend taking lens cleaning kit with you all the time, the lens is slightly heavy, but not too heavy as the Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8.

A disadvantage of this lens is when its used at the widest focal length everything in the middle becomes small. Another disadvantage of owning this beautiful lens is that it needs its own filters, since the front element is huge it needs special sized filters and filter holders.
