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

Screen_Shot_2013-11-14_at_4_17_39_PM
Review Date: Dec 18, 2009 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,600.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Very sharp even at wide open, well build, smooth and fast focusing
Cons:
Bulky, heavy...don't take filter

This lens and 24-70 is the must have lens. I had Carl Zeiss 18mm f3.5 and though no need to have another wide angle lens even though I heard so many people even friend saying good about 14-24. I finally give it a shot to rent one to try out and... end up to own one too :-). Now I use it more than Carl Zeiss. Zeiss 18mm f3.5 is an excellent but Nikon 14-24 can match Zeiss 18mm at every aperture. I have a chance to play with both and hardly to tell which one is the best. Although, Nikon 14-24 give me more flexibility than Zeiss 18mm.

All I can say is that it's one of the best wide angle lens out there so far.


 
Nikon 200-400mm f/4G IF-ED VR AF-S

Review Date: Dec 12, 2009 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $6,000.00 | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Very well built, excellent optical design. Handholdable, very sharp even at 400mm and at wide open but perfect at f5.6
Cons:
little pricey

very practical out in the field. Easy to manuever when tracking or hunting BIF. I was told by some friend that this lens isn't worth it for the price and wasn't sharp as they expect but it turns out much better than I imagine. Now I'm very satisfied with it...
