    OK so my question is exactly the title of my thread. I am possibly going to buy the 14-24 2.8 and I want to know if it is for an APS sensor or will it work properly with a full frame sensor as well. There is a slim possibility that I will be purchasing a D700 as well so I want to make sure it will be able to be used on the D700 as well as my current D70s as well.

    Yup....

    The 12-24mm f/4 is a DX mount.

    My 20mm f/2.8 arrived today! Yayyy. Wanna see the bokeh? Shot with a D700?

    100% crop at f/2.8
    100% crop at f/6.3

    Crazy busy at work so I only snap a few shots.

    Short Answer:
    The 14-24 is an FX (full frame) lens that will work on FX digital, DX digital and any reasonably modern film body that can handle G lenses.

    Long Answer:
    Some DX zoom lenses will work on FX cameras and 35mm film bodies, but don't expect decent corner quality. The 18-55 DX works on FX from about 24-55mm.

    Any FX lens will work on FX digital and DX digital. If it's a G lens (lacks an aperture ring), it will still work on reasonably modern film bodies (eg.: F75, F100, F5, F6). G lenses work partially on some older bodies like the N8008, but only in P and S modes. If it has an aperture ring, it will work on just about any Nikon body since the mid-1970's.

    You mean FX (edit: wrong 14-24 /f2.8 is FX) . And you don't mean mount. The mounts are the same.

    Basically any lens with DX in the name projects a reduced image circle for APS-C cameras, Lenses which don't simply don't have DX written on them. No additional markings needed.

    So is the consensus that D700 + 14-24 2.8 = Good combo...

    Because even if I don't buy the D700 right away I will most definately get the 14-24.

    I've shot one.

    It is a really excellent lens quality wise, but the thing is a BEAST of a lens. It is freaking HUGE... so long as you realize you are going to be carrying around the prow of the Titanic with you, you are good to go.

    Well, he was wrong, but he was also right. And since you were replying to his post, you too were wrong.

    The 12-24mm is a DX lens, while the 14-24mm isn't.

    the 12-24mm f/4 is a DX format lens.

    the 14-24mm f/2.8 is a FX format lens.

    FX lenses work on DX[crop bodies].

    OK so piggybacking on my pown thread, from the pics I have seen and some info the filter situation is confusing. Will this lens take standard filters or even any filters at all. The one image I have seen of it, it looks like the glass extends past the rim where a filter would thread.

    I'm guessing it will not take filters. If you look through the tech specs for random lenses on Nikon's web site, they list filter sizes, but they do not for that lens.
