Thread: Nikkor 24mm f1.4G worth it on D7000?

    We can only quantify the quality, build, cost of the lens is 3x more. Will it give you 3x better the image you are getting currently from your 28 1.8? Only you will know

    Oops accidentally saw TS has consider sell, his 28mm G and going for 24mm G..

    BTW just hope you good luck and enjoy your future 24mm G with quality and pay.

    If you read most review boards that come out of the review forums, most recommend the 35mm f/1.8G DX instead of the 24mm f/1.4G as the angle of view is almost similar and between f/1.8 and f/1.4, it isnt a lot of difference unless you truly need the f/1.4. The price difference is in contrast, BIG.

    But if you are thinking of getting a FX in the future and 24mm is the focal length that you mostly use, check out the tread on "If the 24mm f/1.4G is for you". It could be worth the investment.

    Focusing using the 24mm f/1.4G at f/1.4 is tricky and if not done properly, a user can think the lens is faulty by design but at times it really is the lens that is faulty by production.

    1st hand is 100% after a week later and sell on B/S should be dropped on at lease 10% of original price.
    Unless you really wanna buy for collection

    But TS is a bit serious to invest on 24mm F1.4G,
    Because the price can be upgrade the D7k into D700 in time.

    Lol, the price of a local piece of 24mm F/1.4G is more than enough for a D700 with spare change. Not to mention the D7000....

    Rent one and try it out, or you can wait for supervalue Saturday with a discount to rent it.

    why not re-phrase it this way?;

    buy delicious cake, enjoy small portion, bits by bits, and enjoy the rest of the delicious cake later.

    e.g. shot on DX now, months later, upgrade to FX, can fully utilize the lens.

    Using it on cropped sensor means you only use a small portion of it and the rest of the glasses will be there for nothing. It's like buy a very delicious cake just to take a small portion and throw away the rest.

    35mm and 24mm are very very very different in angle of view and perspective if gives...

    but just for your info, the large lens's elements are manufactured with many tedious processes.
    The reject rate is very high. That's the reason why it's so expensive.

    Not exactly..
    In most cases.. although only using a small portion of it.. it still beat the crap out of the rest of the DX glasses..
    If one can afford or really want it..then just go for it.. You will be happy and They will be happy as well.

    I know the 24mm is crazy expensive at around $2.8k which is 3 times more expensive than the 28mm. With the crop factor it will be a 36mm which is perfect for street photography. The million dollar question is.. is it 3 times as good compared to the 28mm or it's just the -4mm and bigger aperture difference?

    It's a big purchase so I need to make sure it's worth it..
    Worth it AS lens... YES FOR SURE... best around..... but not on a crop sensor.... save your $$
    See my WTS items.. :) Any sales is by meet up face to face, payment is cash only.

    Yep! 24 f1.4 worths every penny but even much better to have it attach on a FF body.
