Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8G IF-ED AF-S Nikkor

Review Date: Dec 4, 2011 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Usable with canon, it's as sharp as lens can get, I got new dimension in landscape photographing with this lens, ++ Now I can have friends from both sides C&N... Thank's Nikon for this piece of gold!
Cons:
Firs I thought manual focusing might be a problem with my 5dmk2, but I forgot that very soon after using it it's practically always in focus when 3ft away from the target and who needs filters nowadays anyway.

I'm happy landscape photographer from the northern hemisphere Finland and I have always wanted to try Nikon gear... my sister is Nikon girl and when I visit her I sometimes keep her N body in my hands but this is all I can do with it... my brains are not Nikon orientated and I feel like I'm holding newborn baby that looks like it just feel so uncomfortable that it will start this noisy screaming, so I let it be where it belongs. I have always had some complains about Canon wide angles and It was hopeless to find great performer for the fullframe body, luckily I heard about this adapter for 14-24mm and then I started to arrange this mission impossible to make adoption from Nikon civilization to Canon family. I'm happy I did because now I know better how to live in peace with the nikonians.

Pros: So sharp that it hurts, great build quality, black is beautiful, faster than me, handles light perfectly...great balance on tripod.
Cons:
I should get this before!

I did some shooting with this yesterday and I was surpriced how well built this lens really is, I'm also very pleased with fast focusing. This lens really fits in my hands with 40d, few hours shooting gave me some very nice photos. I loved the sharpness of 70-200 4L, but now I don't cry after that any more, because this is at least as sharp and +100mm in zoom range. I can't believe that I'm having sigma and I keep it rather than L glass! It's great to have some real competition on the manufacturing field.

This is one of those shots, I got on that first day testing

Pros: What a walkaround lens! I'm even happy with "macro" on butterflys.
Cons:
Wide open there's some softness in corners but...
