24mm primes just don’t seem to get as much love as other focal lengths. This, my friends, is a real shame as the 24mm focal length is incredibly versatile. The 24mm focal length is perfect for landscapes, cityscapes, food photography, street, documentary photography, and even environmental portraits. If you’re in the market for a versatile, weather sealed lens, check out four of our favorite 24mm primes after the break.

Sony 24mm F1.4 G Master

In our review, we said:

“We tested our review unit in a particularly frigid New York City winter, subjecting the lens to freezing temperatures as well as a combination of rain and snowfall. The weather sealing on the Sony 24mm f1.4 G Master held up without incident, and the fluorine coating on the lens’ front element made it very easy to clean up any raindrops or snowflakes that made contact with the front element, with no streaking left behind.”

Nikon 24mm F1.8 Z

24mm primes

In our review, we said:

“The Nikon 24mm f1.8 Z was used extensively in the rain. In fact, we kept it out for a few hours and it kept working. I was very thoroughly impressed previously with how good the build quality of Nikon’s lenses are, but this blew me away. Photographers who need to shoot in less than ideal conditions will feel relieved that this lens will keep working.”

Tamron 24mm F2.8 Di III OSD M1:2

24mm primes

In our review, we said:

“Despite the plasticky feel, the Tamron 24mm f2.8 Di III OSD M1:2 is robustly built. The weather-sealing on this lens performed as advertised. Neither torrential downpours nor freezing temperatures had negative effects on the Tamron 24mm f2.8’s performance.”

Fujifilm 16mm F2.8 R WR (24mm Equivalent)

24mm primes

In our review, we said:

“Fujifilm’s cameras and lenses, when stated to be weather resistant via the WR designation, are often pretty great. During our usage of the Fujifilm 16mm f2.8 R WR lens, it never failed.”
