Excerpt: This now outdated design was purchased to provide a relatively high-speed, lightweight original Nikkor lens for a D610 body.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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
