Comparison to Nikon 14-24/2.8 Zoom

This page compares the Canon EF 14/2.8L II to the Nikon AF-S Nikkor 14-24mm f/2.8G ED zoom. The Nikon 14-24 might well be the world’s finest wide angle zoom.

The 14-24/2.8 uses an electronically-controlled aperture (the “G” designation). Without the requisite electronic control, the diaphragm of the 14-24/2.8 stops down to f/22, and stays there. A lens mount adapter can be used to mount it to an EOS body, but there is no aperture control, and f/22 is a poor-performing and difficult-to-focus aperture. “Chipped” lens mount adapters are expected to become available in 2008 which will allow aperture control, possibly making the 14-24/2.8 a lens of choice for serious wide angle Canon digital users.
