Summary: It was either a used 20 f/2.8 D or the newer 20 1.8 G. Decided to go for the f/2.8 D because I don't need f/1.8 and it's much more economical when buying used. Well built, great ergonomics, small size.
Summary: This review pertains to the 20mm f/2.8D on a DX camera. (D90) giving the shooter a 30mm equivalent prime. The main benefit of this lens is that it focuses closer than my connivence zoom (18-200 DX) with a .25m close focus minimum vs. .50m on the zoom.
Excerpt: This lens is spectacular if, and only if, it is shot anywhere from ƒ/8 to ƒ/11 (and the 1/3rd and 1/2 stops in between). That's it. If you plan on shooting outside of that range, expect Chromatic abberation (really bad), very soft focus in the corners, or really bad softness from it being stopped...
Summary: As per information given by Amazon the lens should be fully compatible with D7100. Unfortunately this is not correct. It’s fully compatible with older versions of Nikon cameras but not with 7100. It’s a good lens but it cannot be used at full. Be careful when you follow Amazon recommendations.
Excerpt: First time user and purchase of a wide angle lens. It's size and weight are perfect and make it a joy to carry and shoot with. There is a bit of a learning curve for me, so if you haven't shot wide yet, don't despair, keep trying, the pictures get better and you will have tons of fun.
Excerpt: Though this lens is no super glass, it performs well and is very small, light, and robust. Close focus, fixable distortion, and f2.8 make this guy quite usable for CFWA shots. Nikon needs to update this class of primes.
Excerpt: I bought this lens to use on my D700, and it's a great choice, instead of a zoom wide-angle, for walking around. It's small and lightweight, and doesn't cause people to "gawk" at it. I have not used it on my D7000, yet, but I plan on doing that soon.
