The 14-24mm is a historic lens remarkable for it's powerful combination of an extremely wide field of view, image quality notably superior to the competing full 35mm frame wide angle options that preceded it, and a constant f/2.8 maximum aperture through out it's entire broad zoom range.
At 14mm it's 114° diagonal angle of view the is 7° wider than a 16mm focal length and 10° wider than a 17mm focal length. The 14-24mm makes liberal use of enhanced optical formulas engineered to produce exceptional sharpness, contrast and color, rendering outstanding image integrity. Nikon's state of the art Nano Crystal Coat and Super Integrated Coating effectively eliminate flare and ghosting to maximum contrast and clarity. The bright f/2.8 maximum aperture allows use of faster shutter speeds, shooting in available light and selective background blur.
The 14-24mm is and IF (Internal Focus) design coupled to an AF-S SWM (Silent Wave Motor) to enable ultra high-speed autofocusing with exceptional accuracy and super-quiet operation as well as full time manual focus override. With a .28m (0.9ft) minimum focus you can produce dramatic close-up perspective while zooming to frame exactly what you want.
