Comments:

I bought this lens to complement the Nikon 85mm 1.4G on a D700. I wanted a wide-angle lens that wouldn't suck out the corners like 24mm and wider lenses do. I use it mostly to make photographs of my friends and family. I am extremely happy with my purchase, and this lens rarely leaves my camera these days. I'll summarize a few technical considerations that numerous reviewers have touched upon, and which I can confirm from my own use. The lens is very sharp at f/1.4, and it gets REALLY sharp from f/2.8. The bokeh is generally very pleasing, but can at times be a little bit nervous close to f/1.4 - but really only with scenes that feature grass or other busy compositional elements. Vignetting is really bad wide open (more than 2 stops in the corners at f/1.4 and more than 1 stop at f/2) but this can be automatically corrected in-camera or with Photoshop or other software. Chromatic aberration is negligible. In short, this lens is worth the price. I just love it. If you like the focal length, you will be very pleased with its performance.

Comments:

This is a great lens. An excellent performer in low-light, and a stellar performer under typical circumstances. Works like a 52mm lens on DX. A minor criticism is that I would've preferred Nikon to stick to a standard 77mm on their "pro" lenses. I needed to buy a step-up ring for my filters.
