Pop Photo

The 14mm f/2.8D AF Nikkor is Nikon’s widest rectilinear lens that covers the 35mm format, giving a whopping 114- degree angle of view. With its equally impressive f/2.8 aperture, it provides a bright viewing image along with available-light shooting ability. In addition, performance is also unsurpassed, but all this comes at a princely price. Offering state of the art performance, Nikon’s remarkable 14mm f/2.8 is a great tool for pros and other advanced Nikon shooters needing the ultimate in angular coverage and speed without distortion. They had better have deep pockets. READ FULL REVIEW

Our copy of the Nikon 14mm f/2.8 lens was a sturdy, well-built, excellent focusing lens. Unfortunately, its optical performance (sharpness, chromatic aberration, shading, distortion) was a little marginal, especially for a lens selling in the vicinity of $1400. We haven’t (yet) had the chance to compare it to competing 14mm prime lenses available for the Nikon mount, but most of its optical characteristics are surpassed by any of several zooms available on the market for considerably less money. If you really need an f/2.8 maximum aperture at 14mm, the Nikon 14mm f/2.8 prime may be a good choice. But if maximum aperture isn’t all that important in your shooting, you can do a lot better with any of several ultrawide zoom lenses instead. READ FULL REVIEW

My Nikon 14mm f/2.8 AF-D works great. On film, it’s uniformly sharp at all apertures and focuses instantly and exactly. It just works! It is a huge improvement over the 15mm f/3.5 because the 15mm had horrific ghosting and flare problems. READ FULL REVIEW
