Anybody tried this lens? I'd like some feedback before considering a
purchase.

Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8G ED AF-S Nikkor Wide Angle Zoom Lens

How does it compare to the 17-35mm f/2.8 ?
I'm looking for people who have actually used it and not information
that someone found on the net.

It's not very good at all. *All* the detailed reviews and subjective
opinions on the net are wrong.

Have a look at the Sigma 10-20mm,I've got one on a D80.The reviews are very
good.

Amazing. Used it twice, on D300 and then on D3, and my son now has one
for his D3. There's no other lens made which can match it.

Not sure where you're located, but if you want some hand-on experience, the
camera shops in many larger towns offer rentals. You can take these things
out for a day or two and try them in your own hands. That's why I DO NOT
own quite a few lenses, like tilt-shift things -- it costs very little to
pick one up for the occasion when I'm going to need it, and I conserve
capital.

Even if you're not near a big city, you might be able to rent.

Good luck! ~Ray

If you have one on your camera why would you care about "reviews"?

I use one with my D3.... fabulous lens.. I think is is actually better
than the prime 14mm 2.8 Canon I used to use, and certainly as good as if
not better than the latest Canon 16-35 I bought just before I moved over
to Nikon early this year.

Except the Nikon is a FX (full-frame) lens and the Sigma is a DX crop lens.
It's like comparing apples to eggs...
