Nikon Nikkor AF 24 mm f/2.8D

1 March 2011
Arkadiusz Olech

11. Summary

Pros:
  • very good image quality in the frame centre,
  • well-corrected astigmatism,
  • no reservations concerning the work of autofocus,
  • compact and solid barrel.

Cons:

  • weak image quality on the edge of the frame,
  • visible chromatic aberration,
  • high coma.

If you consult the test results of such lenses as the Tamron 17-50 f/2.8 or the Tokina 19-35 mm, you will notice that both these devices, set at 24 mm, offer us more or less the same performance as the fixed focal Nikkor 2.8/24. Both zooms are cheaper to boot (the Tokina even significantly so) and definitely more all-purpose. Is the tested lens worth buying then? Perhaps not. If you want to own a 24 mm class “prime” you will invest your money better purchasing the noticeably cheaper Sigma 1.8/24.
