Nikon designed this wide-angle lens specifically for their DX SLR cameras, like the D90 or D300. It gives you a huge field of view for superb and sweeping landscape photography. Snap wide outdoor photos that show the scope of a scene — capture the majestic height of a giant redwood in a national park or the bustle of a wide city street. And the lens is also great for indoor photography. The ultra-wide-angle view will let you fit a large group of people in a single photo, so you can pack your room with party guests and record everyone in attendance.

World-class Nikon optics ensure accurate, razor-sharp results. A multi-coating on the lens minimizes flare and ghosting. Your photos will be clear and detailed across the entire field of view — from one edge to the other — thanks to two ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) glass elements and three aspherical lens elements. And Nikon's built-in Silent Wave Motor makes autofocus very fast and nearly silent. You'll be able to quickly focus on your subject and snap images of candid moments.

Warranty Information


Overview: This item is an AF-S DX Nikkor 10-24mm, f/3.5-4.5G ED, wide angle zoom lens, optimized for edge-to-edge sharpness when using Nikon digital SLR DX format cameras with APS-C image sensors.

Built-in CPU: The lens has a built-in CPU which allows it to communicate with the camera body for focus and exposure functions. A set of CPU contacts is located on the lens mount for interfacing with the camera body.

Auto Focus: Internal Focus (IF) provides fast and quiet autofocusing without changing the length of the lens, retaining subject-working distance through the focus range. Nikon's Silent Wave Motor (SWM) enables ultra-high-speed autofocusing with exceptional accuracy and super-quiet operation. The manual/auto focus mode switch allows quick response to situations requiring manual focus operation.

Aperture: Because there is no aperture ring on this lens, the aperture must be set on the camera.

Diaphragm: The lens is equipped with a fully-automatic, 7-blade diaphragm that produces a rounded aperture. Out-of-focus images in front of or behind the subject are rendered as pleasing blurs.

Optional Accessories: Compatible optional accessories include 77mm screw-on filters.

Super Wide Angle for DX Format

Written By Dan, Chicago, IL on Friday, May 20, 2011

I've been wanting to add this lens to my kit bag for a while. I was pleased to discover that Crutchfield had it in stock and I am very pleased with my purchase. I had it within 2 days of placing my order.

This is a super-wide angle lens with a more than 90-degree field of horizontal view. It is also a very sharp lens. It does have a fair amount of barrel distortion at 10mm which can be easily corrected in post-production. The build quality is good, but not what I would call semi-professional grade. If you're rough on your gear, go with the tougher-built 12-24mm. For my money, though, the extra 2 mm is worth being a little more careful. Its wide-angle capabilities and sharpness are outstanding.

The Nikon 10-24mm is the new standard in DX Super-Wide Zooms. Buy one; you wont regret it.
