"RE: New D700 user"

Don't get carried away! I had the 14-24mm and yes it is a lens beyond description! However, it is very specialist in some ways. It is extremely heavy and on FX at times I found it too wide, if too wide can be a problem. It was for me as I like to use ND multi stop filters. Option would be to buy the ubber expensive Lee adaptor kit and filters. I used my 14-24 handheld, but mostly on a tripod. The bulbous front optic is scary and demands utmost care. A few months ago I sold it and bought the 16-35mm f4, a decision I have not regretted. VR is a bonus too. Along with my 24-70 f2.8 it is a great combination. It also works well on my D7000 as a 24-52mm.

Take care, as this lens may have limited appeal and flexibility. It remains a Nikon icon and always will be.
