Nikon 24mm f/2.8D AF Nikkor

1919NCP_180
Review Date: Feb 10, 2006 Recommend? no | Price paid: $250.00 | Rating: 5 

 
Pros: Nice size/ aperature ring is nice. Sharp.
Cons:
Unacceptable barrel distortion. Flares very easily. Shooting into the sun is not an option.

I would love to see this lens updated to use all nikon's latest technological wizardry. It is sharp. However, save for the max. aperature, it is so outperformed by the 18-70 kit zoom in terms of distortion, flare, and ghosting, that I really only carry it if I feel I absolutely must travel light.

I am amazed at the overall 9.5 rating this lens has at FM reviews. Please people, be a little more rational about your ratings. Your endorsement helped convince me to buy what turns out to be only a so-so lens.
