Nikon 24mm f/2.8 AIS Nikkor review by mohawk51
Review Date: 12/21/2012 Would you recommend the product? Yes | Total Spent: None indicated| Rating: 7 

Pros: I like the angle of view on this lens
Cons: Just doesn't seem as sharp as it should be

I've owned both and I don't think either the 24/F2 AIS or the 24 F/2.8 AIS are that great. I've read many places that the "crown jewels" of the wide angle line up from Nikon are the 28's. I shoot with the 28 F/2 AIS and it is truly magnificent. Extreme sharpness from foreground to infinity. I just wish the 24's were like it. This 24 likes to flare like mad. Don't need flare in the pics. So, I just can't give it a high rating at all.

Nikon 24mm f/2.8 AIS Nikkor review by dugong5pm
Review Date: 10/11/2012 Would you recommend the product? Yes | Total Spent: $125.00| Rating: 7 

Pros: very compact! metal body, nostalgic feeling
Cons: old & outdated, so-so performer

this is my lens.. if I'm taking my Nikon F3 for that nostalgic street hunts. it's wide, small, fast & sturdy. the mechanics are perfect. I still own this lens and it runs smoothly until now.

Optics are good (especially for its era), but no better than any modern lens. Use a modern (digital) body? a lenskit would outperforms this lens in terms of image quality.
I keep it for that nostalgic moments. If you're a collector, then it's a must have.
