Nikon Walk About with the AF-S NIKKOR 14-24mm f/2.8G ED

So after only 4 days of using the AF-S NIKKOR 14-24mm f2.8G ED Lens this Jerk’s Short Review of this lens is

OH MY FUCKING GOD THIS IS SO MOTHERFUCKING SHARP!!!!

This opinion may be a bit biased after two to three years of dealing with chronic Canon softness, but my initial thoughts on this lens after using it for a 3 day wedding and nearly a 1/2 dozen other shoots is OH MY FUCKING GOD THIS IS SO MOTHERFUCKING SHARP!!!!

Now I know that these photos are not the best for judging lens sharpness but trust me having owned both versions of the Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II USM (in fact I owned the mark two version twice) this lens makes that one seem like a completely ridiculous waste of money (which it was. in fact all three were) 

I also haven’t used this lens on a Non-DX (AKA FX) camera so I haven’t even really experienced the world of just how stupid freaking wide this lens really is. (With the 1.5x crop of the DX format it is really like a 21-36mm lens which is still really wide) and I also realize that the absence of the Low Pass filter on the Nikon D7100 will make things even sharper! But still OH MY FUCKING GOD THIS IS SO MOTHERFUCKING SHARP!!!!

    G’day mate,

    I had to crack up laughing when I read your comment on this lens: OH MY FUCKING GOD THIS IS SO MOTHERFUCKING SHARP!!!!

    I recently purchased a D7100 along with the 105mm Micro Prime, and now I will be purchasing that MOTHERFUCKING SHARP lens you are crapping on about. My 105mm is an FX format lens as is this MOTHERFUCKING SHARP 14-24mm because I plan to go full-frame some time in the future.

    Cheers mate!
