AF-S Nikkor 14-24mm f/2.8G ED-IF review at Digital Photography School: So good, it can be tempting to switch systems just for this lens.

the award-winning AF-S NIKKOR 14–24mm f/2.8G ED ultra wide zoom lens

Professional photographer Peter West Carey tested this lens with a Nikon D800E body. Lots of gorgeous full size EXIF-ed sample photos inside:

The lens is a joy to use and the results, to me, are stunning. It has me seriously thinking of adopting a Nikon camera and this lens in the future. It was very useful both in Utah when I had to get a little closer, without getting physically closer, at Mesa Arch. It was also helpful when shooting from a helicopter over Hawaii, The Big Island as the blades and skids started to show as I could zoom in just a little and make it work. If I had a Nikon camera body, I would already own this lens and it will be the first Nikon lens I ever buy. It is an excellent lens.

"Lens flare was annoying for sunset shots. There are some prime examples below. I found it beyond distracting, especially in the shot from the rim of Canyon lands with the dead tree. The angle was just wrong but it's the angle that I wanted. Sharpness was impressive, even closer to the edges. With the huge sensor of the D800E, the enlargements on wide shots was beyond my expectations while remaining sharp. For instance, take a look at the full sized version of Mesa Arch below. Look to the distant towers. This is a testament to the lens' overall sharpness, which has me drooling."
