Questions & Answers for Nikon Inc. AF-S NIKKOR 14-24mm f/2.8G ED

Question

Understand this lens cannot be fitted with filters which seems extremely odd to me, or can it?

If nothing else to protect the lens glass from the elements while shooting or an accident, can Nikon recommend a filter manufacturer that has or can custom make filters for this lens. I'd like to also know the thinking behind the engineering of this lens to not allow the use of filters for it. Appreciate it before I consider buying this lens with this liability or risk factor. Thanks.

I bought mine with extra insurance protection that, for a reasonable price, covers accidental damage up to and even including full replacement. That said, you do want to be careful when carrying your camera around with this lens attached.

there are some third-party solutions that make use of the ridges of the sunshade petals. however, it's quite common for fish-eye category lenses not to have a filter mount.

Question

How to clean the glass?

When I clean the glass on the Nikon 14-24 2.8 with lens cleaner, lens tissue, and wipe off with a micro fiber cloth I am getting swirl marks. How do I get rid of the swirl marks without over cleaning and damaging the lens?

Use a piece of lint free lens cleaning tissue and a small amount of Lens Cleaning solution. Do not use anything containing abrasives or solvents, only use Lens Cleaning Solution.

Will this lens crop the frame on the D600? Or should I prefer the 17-35 mm?

This lens is full frame (FX) as is the D600. There is no crop unless you choose to set the camera to that mode (and why you would do that, I can't imagine). It is the DX lenses that will shoot only in crop on a full frame sensor like the D600). I think this lens is amazing and prefer it to the 17-35mm.

Why would you want to shoot DX crop with a wide lens, in DX crop the D600 only shoots at 10.5 megapixels. If you must then go with the 17-35 DX

Question

Why isn't the hyperfocal distance mark engraved on this lens?

I would like to experiment with hyperfocal. Older Nikon lenses have the hyperfocal distance marks engraved but the 14-24 has none. Is there any tutorial available or perhaps Nikon could write a program that we could use to calculate the hyperfocal distances.

I believe you mean parfocal, a lens that stays in focus when magnification/focal length is changed.
1) I've never tested the 14-24mm myself.
2) Nikon doesn't say anything about it.
3) But several third parties over the Internet say that "yes".

Question

What's the best lens for shooting video indoors on a D7000

Will be doing a shoot inside a big hall in a few weeks and I have been having issues either picking the right lens or with my camera's settings when shooting video indoors. Some shots are exposed fine, some are too dark and then some are over exposed and I need to find a happen medium. I chose Nikon 14-24mm below but I wanted to know what you thought was the best lens for what I need to shoot.

Any Nikon lens with a maximum aperture or F-number of f/2.8 or lower would perform well indoors or in low lighting conditions. The 14-24mm lens is an ultra wide angle lens, so you will need to get as close as you can to your subjects. The AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II is a very good choice if you need to get close shots without moving closer and it's excellent for indoor shots. Prime lenses are also very good.

The ariticle below is about shooting indoor sports but it should give you an idea of how the lenses perform indoor.

You cannot put a filter on the lens. You will have to get a third party filter kit but they are not for protection.

ND Filters not compatable w/Lens...Any Options?

Lee ND slide-in filters and filter holder do not work on this lens (or any other filter). I'm disappointed to realize this as ND filters are as much a must for landscape photography as are wide-angle lenses.

Is there any way around this?
