Summary: This is an excellent lens for reportage style work. It is light weight, quick to focus and fast. The image quality is absolutely excellent, and the images have a certain pop to them that you often find in costlier lenses.
Excerpt: This lens is perfect for what it is. Warm and sharp, small and light. I used this a lot at first but eventually I sold because I already owned the 35mm 1.4g and couldn't justify it sitting around in my bag.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
Summary: I was in the market for a wide angle lens and the Nikon 28mm was the perfect choice and I don't regret it one bit. From the moment I took it out of the box it has had spectacular sharpness on my D750 and so far, no calibration needed!
Summary: Wow! Makes my retinas bleed. It's so sharp. It fills the gap between my 14mm 2.8 & my 50 1.8G perfectly. It's fast, lightweight, sharp, quick accurate focus. I couldn't be happier. I got it on sale for 596.00. What a steal! Thanks Nikon. Another winner
Summary: I have been using it ever since I bought it. If the professional lenses is super sharp, this lense is very sharp. Sure it has some weaknesses compared to professional lense but it worth it for the money.
Summary: The Nikon 28mm f/1.8 wide angle lens is compact, optically superb, and great for nighttime hand held photography. Below are two photos taken at night, hand held, at a shutter speed of 1/125 of a second, an aperture of f/1.8, ISOs of 450 and 3200, Auto White Balance, and Matrix Metering.
Excerpt: I use it for landscape and people and sports. I love that it's SO light weight... amazing. And it looks sharp corner to corner, which to be honest I was surprised at. On the down side, there is a bit of play in the focus ring which is a minor annoyance.
Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
Excerpt: I decided to purchase the 28mm lens specifically for landscape photography. I am quite surprised at how well this lens captures the image. Depending on what lighting condition I am shooting in (low light, natural light, etc) there is a slight vignette around the edges of the image.
