    Cons: Nothing, but focus ring movement on auto focus.

    Pros: Light weight, sharp, always on the back bag.

    Summary: Using on D7000 with no fall off and very good optic quality due to crop image on dx format.

    Cons: No focusing motor so it doesn't work on cheaper bodies, on my D300 AF is fast but focusing ring turns under your fingers, small body so there is no space to hold it well.

    Pros: Sharp, images have that "pop" that even 2.8 zooms don't give me. Great focal length on DX, good build, small, light.

    Summary: I love this lens, even made a mistake of selling it when I got Nikkor 17-55mm f/2.8 but bought another one again. Great for travel and everyday. Really quality lens in a small package. Ideal focal length on a DX for me.

    Cons: AF occasionally off at close focus points.

    Pros: Good flare resistance, not as much CA as tests indicate (D7000 RAW), great close focus, perfect size/weight

    Summary: A winner.

    Cons: Very soft everywhere @ f/2.8 and the bokeh is not so good.

    Pros: Built like a tank. Feels very solid. Quite wide on FX and film.

    Summary: A good, light prime lens for wide FX work and a decent street lens for DX when you have a good amount of light to work with. Would pick up a Nikkor 28mm if having the wide field of view at 20mm is not important to you.

    Price: 475 EUR

    Cons: soft corners (esp. f/2.8), lots of vignetting (again at f/2.8)

    Pros: very light and compact, yet ultrawide

    Summary: Much more portable & less scary than 14-24/2.8, -- but eventually no match for IQ.
