Verdict

The Nikkor AF-D 24mm f/2.8 shows good sharpness in the center wide open with rather soft borders. Stopped down to f/8 however the sharpness is on a very high level across the whole FX image.

Unfortunately vignetting is on a rather high level, especially for larger apertures. CAs are also quite pronounced, however they are easy to correct in post processing. Bokeh is not stellar either.

Nonetheless, the lens is quite compact and leight-weight and as such a possible option to consider for those who prefer to travel light. As a landscape lens that is used around its sweet spot aperture setting mostly (f/8) the lens delivers very good results (at least after CAs have been removed).
