Next-level optical performance

Unleash the full potential of your high-resolution Nikon DSLR. The AF-S NIKKOR 24mm f/1.8G ED's combination of Nano Crystal Coat (N), Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass and Aspherical (AS) lens elements produces extreme sharpness with virtually no ghosting, flare or distortion—even at the far edges of the frame. Marvel at every photo and video.

Versatility and speed

The combination of wide-angle perspective and a fast f/1.8 aperture opens exciting new shooting possibilities. Make your subject pop against a softly blurred background or foreground. Exaggerate depth-of-field simply by getting closer to your subject. Capture dramatic low-light sunsets or skyscrapers—even star trail photos—with outstanding image quality. Expand your horizons.

Aspherical Lens

A lens with a curved, non-spherical surface. Used to reduce aberrations and enable a more compact lens size. Aspherical lenses minimize coma and other types of lens aberrations, even when used at the widest aperture. They are particularly useful in correcting distortion in wide-angle lenses and help contribute to a lighter, more compact design by reducing the number of standard (spherical) elements necessary. Aspherical lens elements correct these distortions by continuously changing the refractive index from the centre of the lens.

ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) Glass

An optical glass developed by Nikon that is used with normal optical glass in telephoto lenses to obtain optimum correction of chromatic aberrations.


Select NIKKOR lenses have a focusing mode which allows switching from automatic to manual focusing with virtually no lag time by simply turning the focusing ring on the lens. This makes it possible to seamlessly switch to fine manual focusing while looking through the viewfinder.

Nano Crystal Coat

An anti-reflective coating developed by Nikon that virtually eliminates internal lens element reflections across a wide range of wavelengths. Nano Crystal Coat solves ghost effects caused by red light and effectively reduces ghost and flare caused by light entering the lens diagonally.

Rear Focusing System

A system in which only the rear lens group moves during focusing, thus eliminating changes in the physical length of the lens during focusing and enabling faster focusing. Such lenses are designated with RF on the lens barrel.

Silent Wave Motor

AF-S NIKKOR lenses feature Nikon’s Silent Wave Motor (SWM). This technology converts “traveling waves” into rotational energy to focus the optics. This enables high-speed autofocusing that's extremely accurate and super quiet.

Super Integrated Coating

Nikon Super Integrated Coating is Nikon's term for its multilayer coating of the optical elements in NIKKOR lenses.

The Nikon AF-S Nikkor 24mm f/1.8G ED is a high-quality, compact and affordable wide-angle lens for full-frame Nikon DSLR users. Centre sharpness is good at the maximum aperture, and excellent from f/2.8 onwards, although you need to stop down to f/4 to get acceptable results at the edges of the...


The Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 24mm f/1.8G ED is a great lens to use, a very attractive focal length and offers a very good level of sharpness. The other qualities of the lens all add up to an excellent offering from Nikon, at a very reasonable price.

DP Review

The Nikkor 24mm 1.8G ED is a fast and lightweight wide-angle prime that offers very nice optical quality at a bargain price. The lens offers smooth and fast autofocus and a solid amount of light gathering ability with an F1.8 maximum aperture, which makes it one of Nikon's most affordable and best...

The AF-S Nikkor 24mm f/1.4G ED is a fast wide-angle lens for Nikon SLRs, but it's expensive.

Imaging Resource

Nikon's 24mm ƒ/1.8G is an excellent addition to its prime lineup, however most shooters are going to be wondering if it is worth saving a significant amount of money by buying this lens in comparison to the ƒ/1.4 version. The short answer is -- unless you need the ƒ/1.4 aperture setting -- yes.


The Nikkor delivers impressive resolution across the image frame straight from the maximum aperture. CA's are well controlled and image distortion is moderate. In addition, the bokeh quality of the lens is on a surprisingly high level for such a wide angle lens.

Lives up to its DxOmark rating. I’ve been using it for nature/landscape shots and lower-light indoor opportunities on my D780 with beautiful results. The lighter-than-expected weight of the lens is a bonus. This is one of Nikon’s better bang-for-the-buck prime lens values.

I recently bought the 24mm 1.8 to have an intermediate lens between my 20mm 1.8 and my 35mm 1.8. The 24mm is very good, as I expected. Fast, accurate AF, sharp already 1.8 and with good price. The size and weight are similar to that of 20mm 1.8. Lightweight and with medium size.


Amazing lens. Perfect for landscape and nature wide open spaces photography.


I put it on a APSC right now so it's like around 35mm. It's a great lens and I am satisfied with its sharpness. If it could improve the control of purple light it could be even better.

Right now, not having had it long, I would rate at 5 stars. I have only shot a couple of assignments with this lens. The images look great. I have a Nikkor 17-35 2.8 that has been a workhorse. I still use it, but it is a heavy beast. I will continue to use it when I need something that wide.

This lens is a dream come true. We are avid travelers and we take photographs of landscapes and architecture. We personally find the 35mm lenses too constricting, and 28mm lenses dont really work on wide landscapes or large interior spaces.


I just received my new Nikon AF-S Nikkor 24mm f/1.8 lens and tested it today at the San Diego Zoo. Aside from terrific contrast and resolution, the lens is remarkably light, yet very well built. It is a very good addition to the Nikon family of fixed focal length f/1.8 lenses.

I recently moved to the D810 and need some better quality lens for this camera. My first purchase was an AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.4G. To complement that, I chose the AF-S Nikkor 24mm f/1.8G as my wide angle lens. It has been a really good choice.

B&H Photo

Purchased this lens for landscapes and found the images to be sharp from edge to edge. Ability to photograph in low light is an added bonus to this well made lens. Works well on the Nikon D610 and D750 with very nice resolution that a prime lens can deliver.

Imaging Resource

This lens is wonderful but possibly best not purchased used... My used copy looked like new but would not produce truly sharp images; my AF-S 18-35G was sharper at 24mm. I sent it to Nikon for repair ($210 + shipping) and now it is wonderfully sharp.
