Very nice lens

I use this to fill the need for the slightly wider prime lens. It performs very well in moderate to good light, not very well in poor light. Very nice wide lens at a very good price.

Very nice little lens for a little pricetag.

By

from Atlanta, GA

When I purchased this lens, I had mixed expectations. I wanted a standard 28mm wide angle to keep in my camera bag, but didn't feel like I'd use one enough to justify the price tag on the 1.8G. I haven't been disappointed with this lens in respect to the insignificant amount of money I spent on it. It is respectably sharp, especially considering the price. There are sharper primes out there, but you'll be forking out a good bit more cash for them. The AF is also snappy. Very snappy, actually, which I was surprised by. If your camera doesn't have a built-in AF motor, though, you obviously won't be able to use the AF feature. You could still manually focus with it, and it will still be just as sharp, but that's something people those types of cameras will want to keep in mind. Color and overall IQ is nice with minimal distortion that you really have to look for to find, if you find any at all. Bokeh is also nice, though this is not a lens I'd recommend for portraiture. I've used the lens on full-frame and crop sensor bodies and it has performed well on both. Again, it's not the most used lens in my camera bag, but I do like it enough to keep it in there.

Great value

By

Purchased this lens as refurbished. Arrived looking like it was brand new, included front and rear end caps and instructions. Only thing missing was the original box. There was not even a fingerprint on the lens. It works flawlessly thus far. The 28/2.8 is a great lens for street photography, helping to reduce the imposing size of my D200 and D800. I have found that the 24-70/2.8 is simply too intrusive for effective street photography. The wide 2.8 allows me plenty of wiggle room to be less obvious about what I am taking a picture of, as well as plently of PP crop room.

Excellent Lens

By

from Fresno, CA, USA

Purchased this lens and it arrived a couple of days ago. Just did a lens test this morning with a target and I am very impressed. A touch soft around the edges at 2.8 but this is still a usable f/stop. Clears up nicely by 5.6. f/22 not a hot f/stop but f/16 is very nice. Overall I feel this is a great lens for the price - no complaints.

Wonderful

Fine lens. Does exactly what I expect each and every time. Nice depth of field and wonderful sharpness at all but the extreme f-stops.

THINK TWICE

By

from Phoenix, AZ  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I WOULD NOT PURCHASE THIS LENS - INSTEAD, LOOK FOR A GREAT ZOOM LENS. IN ADDITION, I WOULD NOT BUY IT AND LATER EXPECT TO SEND IT IN TO ADORAMA TO REPURCHASE IT FOR/OR EXCHANGE FOR ANOTHER LENS. YOU WILL LOSE EVERY TIME.

Save your money

An inferior wide angle lens as you get better results using the standard lens that comes with the camera. Not worth the money I spent to purchase it.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Can i use this with a D70 camera system?
TRACY P  I love this lens. If your camera doesn't require an AF S type lens, this should work perfectly. I'm not as familiar with the D70, I know some of the cameras like the D40, D40x and D60 require AF S lens so that the lens will work automatically. I use this lens for group shots on D300 or anytime I need a little wider angle with no distortion.
Shopper  I have a Nikon D3200 / Do this lens work with this camera ? Thanks in advance - Frank
TRACY P  I think you will need an "s" type of lens which would mean this will probably not work on that camera.
