Nikon Nikkor AF 24 mm f/2.8D

4. Image resolution

When it comes to the image quality in the frame centre we can’t have any reservations at all. Even by f/2.8 the lens remains sharp as it reaches the level of over 36 lpmm; then it improves very quickly and exceeds distinctly the level of 40 lpmm. Its maximum results are a bit lower than those of the Nikon 20 mm but the difference is not huge and difficult to notice in real life photos.

When it comes to the performance on the edge of the field the 20 mm model fell short of our expectations. You could certainly expect a better work from a high end “prime”. Our demands concerning the 2.8/24 lens, tested here, were, in fact, even higher. A 24 mm device designed for full frame on a small DX sensor must map an angle narrower by as many as 10 degrees than a 20 mm lens – because of that you can demand a better degree sharpness. The tested device, though, fared even a tad worse than the 20 mm or the Tokina 19-35 mm zoom, set near 24 mm.
