Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 24mm f/1.4G ED Lens ($2,196.95): It is one of those “golden” lenses that performs in a class of its own. Highly advanced optical engineering, combined with Nikon technologies such as ED glass, Nano Crystal Coat and Rear Focusing combine to render exceptional 24mm image quality.

A fast maximum aperture of f/1.4 is very effective in low light situations and provides exacting depth of field control.
