Fine at middle of the lens

monochromatics, B&H Photo
15 October 2014
  • 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 down too much. Now someone may be asking themselves, "why is he recommending it then if it is really only a 2-stop lens?

  • Summary: I love mines thus far. Didn't give it a 5 star b/c in my opinion when it comes to photography equipment, nothings perfect. I bought this lens exclusively for group shots and it has come in handy each time I've needed to use it. Very little fall off on the corners, but every lens I've ever used, and I've used a lot of them, have some fall off on the corners/ends. I do not regret buying this lens at all.

Great little lens

  • Summary: It might be old, but this lens does what it needs to. Manual iris is great for high speed and locks so you don't slip out. Sturdy and affordable. It's small, so if you're using a rig, keep in mind your fingers might hurt trying to work it and you can't use a controller on it.

Good lense but….

  • 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. They still need to be verified.

Amazing stopped down, tough to shoot wide open.

HM, Amazon

  • Summary: I acquired this lens used from someone who claimed to have hardly ever used it. Almost immediately, the aperture blades stuck full open. It cost over $100 to fix. Long story short, this is apparently a common occurrence on older Nikon lenses that used an older type of lubricant. Newer lubricants do not cause this. This is a very solid lens, like a small tank, no questions that it is a professional quality build.

First wide angle lens

Tara B., B&H Photo

  • 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. The pictures are sharp and clear and I use it on a Nikon D600 with no issues.
  • Pros: Durable, Lightweight, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Slow Focus

nice light lens

jcdovala, B&H Photo

  • 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.
  • Pros: Durable, Lightweight, Rugged

Great wide-angle prime lens

Paul7e, B&H Photo
28 June 2013
  • 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.
  • Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
