16:9 and an euphoric review of the Nikkor 14-24/2.8

16:9 has posted an euphoric review of the Nikon AF-S 14-24/2.8 lens:

“At 14mm, the Nikon 14-24mm gives us a whole new level of performance: it’s not so much that it rewrites the rules, it doesn’t seem to be aware of what the rules are . . . sharp, vignette-free corners at 14mm / f2.8? No problem! With performance this good at f5.6, I think we’ve just found a lens that may challenge the Leica 15mm f2.8 for the title of ultimate ultrawide. Without question, this lens is at least as good as the Zeiss 15mm f3.5.”


Is it perhaps the most impressive wide angle lens ever by a huge margin? Yes, and yes again.
