Excerpt: I have this and a Nikon 50mm standard, but this 28mm, I think beats the 50mm in terms of clarity and sharpness. It's great for landscapes and street photography, which I do lot. I'd recommend this to be added in your lens arsenal, considering that it's not an overly priced lens.
Excerpt: This lens creates the best wide angle images I've ever produced. Seriously sharp, when you zoome in you can see than colors jump across extreme values between neighboring pixels, meaning that it is far sharper than the sensor can capture.
Excerpt: Perfect: No. The best 28 mm wide angle lens that Nikon makes: YES.I have never seen a sharper or more contrasty 28mm wide angle lens than this one. Not even Leica or Zeiss are superior. Also, very low distortion.
Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight, Strong Construction
