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.

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.

Save your money

By

from Illinois, USA

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.

a surprising performer

By

from Delaware

To my surprise, this lens works very well on FX. My lens dates from 1989 and it does not focus instantly, but the quality is good and the images are surprisingly sharp. The lens is very small and unobtrusive, so it does not call attention to the camera and does not take up much room in the bag, but it gives very good images. The focus is a bit noisy and slow on a D700, a small price to pay for using this old-timer. Build quality is ok; it has held up well for a long time.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
WILLIAM P  I live in Hawaii and you have to have a wide angle lens. Mountains, volcanoes, waterfalls, the ocean, rainbows, yea, WIDE. The kit lens ( that comes with the camera ) is a little wider at 18 but this Nikkor is much better quality. If I want to blow up some of these shots for framing on the wall, it's good to have a better lens.
Shopper  Can I used this lens with Nikon D810?
LILETT O  I'm pretty sure you can. Nikon is really good in accommodating the their old lenses with the newer bodies. But there are faster and better lenses out there that you might want to look into. Having 50mm is always better esp with a full frame body
Mike W  Does this lens auto-focus on the D3200 and D610?
MICHAEL S  No - not on the D3100. D610 - if you mean the D600 - I am almost sure it does not.
