DxOMark reviewed this lens as “A very impressive ultra-wide performer on the Nikon D800”

Landscape photographers may choose the earlier Nikon AF-S 17-35mm f/2.8 or the newer Nikon 16-35mm f/4 VR for their lower weight and compatibility with filters but if that extreme angle of view is required, the Nikon AF-S Nikkor 14-24mm f/2.8G ED can certainly deliver with high-resolution cameras. At around $1,995 it’s not cheap, but it in comparative terms the lens should be considered good value.
