Nikon Lens – Nikkor 24mm F1.8G ED lens review

The AF-S Nikkor 24mm F1.8G ED was first declared back in Aug 2015. It connects Nikon increasing family of recent full structure primes together with the 20mm F1.8G, 28mm F1.8G, Negatives F1.8G, 85mm F1.8G and the 50mm F1.8G. It’s costing just under $750 making it a well printed choice to be combined with cameras like the Nikon D610 and the Nikon D750. The Nikkor can also be used on DX structure cameras with the same central duration of 36mm.

At 24mm the lens is Nikon’s second largest contemporary primary choice to time frame, arriving just behind the Nikkor 20mm lens. Most importantly there are a few other choices at 24mm that audience should definitely be conscious of. One of those choices is the a little bit quicker Sigma 24mm F1.4 DG HSM Art that comes in at just under $850.

1. Key Features

  • 24mm Central Length
  • F1.8 Highest possible Aperture
  • ‘Silent wave’ concentrate engine with full-time guide override
  • F-mount FX structure lens, makes both DX and FX structure Nikon SLRs
  • Accepts conventional screw-type 72mm Filters

2. APS-C

If you’re an APS-C shooting the 36mm comparative central duration with the same aperture of F2.7 will be a great accessory for your lens kit, being versatile enough to allow ecological and photojournalistic images while still being extensive enough to provide for some scenery and structural photography as well. It is important to note however that if you’re looking to purchase this lens for an APS-C digicam, then other available choices, such as Sigma’s 18-35mm F1.8 lens, might be a better substitute for the money. For this reason, we’re not going to consider this lens for use on APS-C in this evaluation.

3. Full-Frame

The Nikkor 24mm works very well in conditions of sharpness, although it does appear to go off at 2/3 the range to the sides when taken start at F1.8. The area sharpness enhances a good cope as you quit the lens down, attaining its max sharpness at around F8. Middle sharpness is great and pretty reliable across all apertures before F8 from which point diffraction boundaries its efficiency. Middle sharpness is best when the lens is ceased down to F5.6.

4. Chromatic Aberration

Wide start, at F1.8 the Nikkor does experience from some CA in the sides with little quantities of CA found in the core of the picture. As you quit the lens down the CA reduces a bit in the sides. The CA seen here is relatively easy to fix with your preferred publish handling application.

5. Vignetting

Vignetting can be a bit of a problem when the Nikkor 24mm F1.8 is taken at wide-open with an almost 2 quit loss of mild at the most excessive sides of the lens with the most of the area suffering from about a 1 quit loss of mild in comparison to the core of the lens. The vignetting enhances considerably by F2.8 and then all but vanishes when you quit the lens down to an aperture of F4 and is constantly on the execute very well thereafter.

6. Transmission or T-stop

The lens’ F-number is a theoretical value, and the real mild transmitting value, known as the T-stop, is always fractionally reduced due to mild failures within the lens. Contact contacts with more components, like a complicated zoom capability, usually be a little bit more impacted. The Nikkor was ranked as having a T-Stop of 1.8 and Sigma was ranked as having a T-Stop of 1.7.

7. Bokeh

While capturing the Longitudinal CA test, we put a net of Xmas lighting a few legs behind our Lens Arrange device to make wonderful paintballs of bokeh, providing us a way to imagine variations between the two lenses’ out-of-focus features. Float your rabbit over any given aperture of any given lens to have the main picture move to a full-frame perspective of the causing taken.

8. Autofocus

In the Nikkor 24mm the auto-focus is sleek and very silent. From the lowest concentrating range it takes a second or so for the engine to turn to infinity and back on the D810. Since the both contacts are targeted wide-open, there’s no change in efficiency if you stop down. Concentrate precision did not seem in order to capturing the lens at a compact aperture indicating that focus move isn’t an problem in either of these contacts.

The concentrating rate of the Sigma 24mm lens seems just a touch more slowly on the D810 in comparison to the Nikkor lens: we refocused each lens a number of times from close focus to a remote item and found the Sigma only roughly 10% more slowly than the Nikkor (0.8 vs 0.9s for a full rack), which is amazing considering the amount of cup the F1.4 lens has to go.

9. Video

In regards to movie quality the contacts are very equally printed, but it is important to note that the Sigma does have extra mild collecting capability with an aperture of F1.4 which will come in useful in low mild circumstances and when you need not so deep DOF. With regards to AF, both contacts use of ring-type focus engines, so can be a little jumpy when targeted using comparison recognition AF, so you’ll be better off personally concentrating.

Manual focus can be a bit challenging with the Nikkor because there’s a small technical lag between switching the main objective band and concentrate actually moving. The Sigma seems more tuned in to moment focus improvements, which actually makes it much easier to concentrate (despite the greater resistance) which gives it an power over the Nikkor when capturing movie.

10. Conclusion

The Nikkor 1.8G sequence of contacts provide some excellent efficiency for the money, but it’s pretty sure that 3rd celebration contacts have come a long way in regards to efficiency over the previous svereal years. Sigma is no different to this; actually one could say that it’s led the cost. That being said the Sigma and Nikkor 24mm contacts are pretty equally printed with the Sigma executing better in some instances such as the managing of longitudinal CA and the more attractive bokeh style. The variations in bokeh can really be seen when evaluating similar apertures, as the Sigma lens tends to provide more blurry background scenes and a little bit bigger out-of-focus features than the Nikkor, which can usually cause to more attractive bokeh. On the other side, the out-of-focus features of the Sigma did have a bit more patterning to them, which could be why we see a little bit less sleek bokeh and some patterning in a little bit out-of-focus areas.
