Fast and sharp glass!

By

from Cambridge, MA, USA

I needed a wide-angle lens that was fast and sharp. The 28mm focal length works perfectly for most of my wide-angle applications. The lens is well-built, fast auto-focus, smooth focus pull and the nano-crystal coat works great! I just used this lens for some landscape work in Tennessee and the results were gorgeous. I have posted a photo of its use on the street using my Nikon D610. I highly recommend this lens for someone that demands the highest quality 28mm f/1.8 prime.

Bright and Compact Wide Angle Lens

By

from San Diego, California

The Nikon 28mm f/1.8 wide angle lens is compact, optically superb, and great for nighttime hand held photography. Below are two photos taken at night, hand held, at a shutter speed of 1/125 of a second, an aperture of f/1.8, ISOs of 450 and 3200, Auto White Balance, and Matrix Metering.

New Nikon 28 mm F1.8 prime

By

from Baltimore, MD  -  Photo Enthusiast

I bought this lens for street photography and some landscape work. It is a lot lighter to carry about than the Nikon professional zoom. Very crisp image at 2.8 and above. Bokeh is good at F1.8-2.8 but not quite as pretty as lenses with 9 leaflets. Unlike the 35mm f1.8 lens, Nikon put its nanocoating on this one--not sure why they left it off the 35 mm.Crisper image than the 35 mm. Still, for street photography, I prefer the 35 mm space to 28. Focus adequate, not superfast.

Use the center focal point

By

from Bakersfield  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I have read much about the soft focus on this lens. This lens is not soft! its fast! Wide aperture lenses need the use of the center focal point to achieve the sharpness most of us desire. At least on a lens in this price category. It's not fun to recompose but this lens has impressive performance if you do. I love this glass for having the ability to shoot semi-wide at f1.8. Great for landscape as well as indoors. Build quality is weak and for that alone I negate one star.

don't be fooled by the gold ring

By

from Michigan  -  Semi-pro Photographer

soft at all fstops even after in camera focus adjustments. Buy the D series lenses that say made in Japan on them. my Nikon 16-30 f4 and 24-120 f4 are sharper then this lens at 28mm at all fstops. returned it for a nikon 35d 2.0

Great lens

By

from Encinitas, CA  -  Photo Enthusiast

Very nice lens. Good angle for landscapes. Nice and bright when light is dim. Good pairing with my 85mm 1.8 lens.

Razor Sharp

By

from Canonsburg, PA

This lens is very sharp. The size is nice for holding. The weight is light. The price is reasonable. If that were not enough, the DXO on this lens is up there with the 24mm 1.4 which costs about $1500.00 more.

Nikon 28mm f/1.8G

By

from Saint Petersburg, FL  -  Photo Enthusiast

I wanted something wider than my existing 50mm f/1.8G. After so much research, I was wary to purchase the 28mm f/1.8G as there are so many reviews that claim that this lens suffers of focus shift. However, my practical tests, which means using the lens in real situations, have not shown any issues with my lens. Or maybe they are unnoticeable, but again, this is actual usage in most common situations such as landscapes, travel, and street photography. This lens is tack sharp even wide open, which combined with its wide angle, makes it a perfect lens for indoor photography where flash photography is not allowed, especially in museums.

Amazing results from this lens

By

from Professional photographer, Clifton Park (Albany burb) New York.

I just purchased this lens, ran a bunch of tests at high ISO at f1.8, 2.8 and 4, all available light at several distances - everything sharp as a razor. Used it on an assignment and very pleased with the images, clear, crisp and good color. When I opened the box, I was concerned because this lens is so light - the results are there, that is what counts. My work is primarily for publications, available light photography is the norm.

Nice

By

from Seattle, WA  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I compared this with the Nikon 35mm 1.8G AF-S DX, and the Sigma 30mm f/1.4 DC HSM. In relation to those, this is noticeably "brighter", my sample had possibly a 1/2 stop more light in every image. The focus ring on the Sigma is smoother and better quality, but overall I preferred everything about this lens to the other two. The Sigma is a little heavier feeling, which some may like but this balances better on the D7000. Also the Sigma finish shows fingerprints. The Bokeh on the 35 is the least desirable; this and the Sigma look identical; neither comes near premium lenses like the Nikon 85 1.4. Overall I would rate them in terms of their price, with this one being the best - but the actual difference in IQ and sharpness is very very slight between all three (at least the samples I tried). Those on a budget (with DX cameras) may prefer one of the others, and those wanting the best should consider the Nikon 35 1.4 or a Zeiss. I did not try the popular Sigma 35 1.4 that also works on full frame, as does this.
