Excerpt: This now outdated design was purchased to provide a relatively high-speed, lightweight original Nikkor lens for a D610 body. It is denigrated as inferior on various websites. However, it is superior in resolution to my Nikkor and off-brand WA zooms which cover 28mm. Nikon is now producing 1.8's for all its WA primes and those are just too expensive for me.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight, Strong Construction
Excerpt: If you're looking for a wide angle lens with minimal distortion, your search ends here. This is the best lens in this price range for Nikon users, especially if you're into architectural or real estate photography. It's also well suited for automotive photography. The stand-out points are the sharpness and easy performance. I also found that the lens is great for isolating details in close-up photography (not macro).
Excerpt: This lens is a ton is everything I thought it would be. It's sharp considering the price and offers a focal length that looks great on a full frame camera.I only have two gripes with this lens: #1 - It's very plastic. I normally dont mind plastic bodied lenses considering I own quite a few, but dont expect this lens to FEEL like a real lens. It takes great pictures but you have to put your confidence in the image quality and not the weight of the glass.#2 - It's NOISY.
Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
Summary: 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.
Summary: I like this lens but wish Nikon would have made this f/1.8 like the Canon competitor. Still not enough to get me to jump ship back to Canon. A solid sharp lens at f/2.8. If this is your focal length, this light, fast, sharp, unobtrusive lens is for you.
Summary: Es un objetivo muy bueno no es un "pro", a distancias cortas funciona muy bien, al infinito no tiene el mismo funcionamiento. En fotografía de arquitectura saca bien líneas rectas, No es tan bueno como el superior Nikon AIS 28 mm. F/2, el cristal amarillentto rosaceo de la lente de éste, tiene un contraste y resolución en la línea más alta, en sus aperturas centrales.
