    Just realized there's no archive for this lens yet. Time to correct that! :2thumbs:
    Nikkor24-1. Nikkor24-2. Nikkor24-3. Nikkor24-4.
    One of Galen Rowell's old favorites - can't be all bad! :cool:
    This lens beat out my old Minolta MD because it's generally sharper and better behaved. (The Minolta can be very sharp in the middle but the field curvature can be a real bear...)
    I was thinking about getting a modern wide angle this year, but who knows - the old Nikkor may just have another road trip or two left.

    It sure looks like it does better than my old Canon FD 24mm did for me, Jeff. And I think the flare works great in your shot of Burney Falls. You wouldn't get that with a modern lens! :D

    Great shots. I like #1 the best. I also have the FD 24mm 2.8 I love it. I recently got the Nikkor 24mm f2, not sure how it compares to the 2.8. I have not used it for any landscapes yet.

    Great shots indeed. The little museum in the second picture is endearing!

    I think I'll test all my lenses in the Eastern Sierra from now on! ;)
