    Nikon 24mm 1.4 G

    anyone here using this lens? Or know someone who is. Point me in a direction

    I am having a hard time finding sample images of this lens shot on film.

    Thinking of getting one for my F5.

    Thanks

    The G series is designed without an aperture ring, as it is mainly aimed at dSLR cameras. While it will work fine on the F5, you may pay a premium for it, as it is the latest incarnation of the 24mm. I don't think many of us are willing to shell out for a G.

    I have a friend who liked his more than he liked the Canon 24/1.4 II, both on digital. I used a borrowed Canon 24 on film once and really liked it. I have those photos somewhere on flickr I say if you've got that cash and it scratches an itch, you probably won't be disappointed with it on film.

    Hey PT - do you know of another fast prime semi wide AF lens for a Nikon that would be cheaper?

    Tried the Sigma 35mm f1.4? Longer than the 24mm sure, but it does some cracker shots.
    I've used it on my F100 with no problems.

    Here you go: http://www.flickr.com/search/groups/...=24mm+f%2F1.4G
    Not many, but some.

    I used the "Nikkor" group's offical tags to search the "I Shoot Film" group.

    No, it's not film based, but it's a lens review, not a camera or film review....

    If you want cheaper, and with an aperture ring, I would look at the 28mm 2.8 AF-D lens, or the 20mm f2.8 lens. Obviously, you are losing a stop with these lenses, but you can get either for about 20% of what the 24 1.4 goes for. If you have the cash, roll with the 24, or get the 20 and 28, and have some cash left over.
