Last week I devoted my attention to the Nikkor 85mm f/1.4.  This week I am renewing my relationship with the superb ultrawide Nikkor 14-24mm f/2.8 lens.  In addition to the stereotypical landscapes that people think about when using an ultrawide angle, I like this lens for closeups.  Not macro type closeup but wide angle closeups.  And I like a bit of bokeh.  These photos were taken at a distance of around 4 to 8 inches (10 – 20 cm).

This lens is extrasharp and at higher f/stops can be amazingly sharp edge to edge.  I like to use this lens at f/2.8 for the sharp center and the smooth bokeh.
