Nikon 24mm f/1.8G ED Aperture Series: Mountainside at Dusk (Nikon D810)

Get Nikon 24mm f/1.8G ED at B&H Photo.

Nikon AF-S Nikkor 24mm f/1.8G ED

The Nikon 24mm f/1.8G strikes an amazingly good balance on imaging performance, size and weight, lens speed, fast autofocus. It’s a winner, and for specific reasons I go into in my review of the Nikon AF-S Nikkor 24mm f/1.8G ED.

At about $746 + 4% rewards, it offers excellent value. In the field, I loved the light weight and compact size: carrying 3 or 4 or five lenses, heavier and bulkier f1.4 lenses add up. An f/1.8 design is an excellent compromise.

This aperture series studies sharpness, field curvature, optical symmetry, chromatic correction at far distance—the most challenging kind of target, and this scene is ideal for assessing all those attributes.

Includes images up to 24 megapixels as well as UltraHD crops, all from f/1.8 through f/11, so a thorough look at the lens behavior is great fun on a high-res screen (see Get a Gorgeous 5K Display—with a Free Computer Included!).
