BEST PROFESSIONAL LENS

AF-S Nikkor 14-24mm f/2.8G ED

This ultra-wide-angle zoom offers an extensive array of shooting opportunities for professionals and photo enthusiasts looking for superb optical quality. The lens construction consists of 14 elements in 11 groups with 2 ED glass elements and 3 aspherical lenses. A newly developed Nano Crystal Coating reduces ghosting and flare between the lens element and the sensor. The lens offers a constant maximum aperture of f/2.8 at all focal lengths ? allowing for shooting in low light conditions ? and the close focusing distance on offer is just 0.28m/0.9ft. A rounded diaphragm opening with 9 blades makes out-of-focus elements appear more natural (Bokeh effect). The SWM (Silent Wave Motor) allows quiet and fast autofocus, and permits manual override at any time with no delay.
