Very Bad Focus Shifting

Steven, B&H Photo
1 week ago
  • Excerpt: This is a great lens but it is very important to understand that it has a VERY bad issue with focus shifting at apertures between f/4-5.6. I typically use my 24-70 but ended up dropping it and had to switch to the 28mm. This was the first time I used this lens at apertures of 4-5.6 and it performed very poorly. Before purchasing this lens, I would highly recommend looking into the issue of focus shifting with this lens.

A good balance

Jo, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I would have liked the 1.4 24mm, but could not afford it. This 28 looks good so far. I live near the water, so the polarizing filter is essential. The reviews on this lens are very good, the test shots I have taken so far are good, and the lens itself feels substantial and smooth, so I am prepared for the best.

Very Good Optics

The McKenzie Kid, B&H Photo
23 July 2014
  • Excerpt: The first thing you notice about this lens is that it is very light, it does not feel very substantial. It is close in size to the Nikon 16-85mm DX zoom, but weighs 155 grams (5.4 oz) less. The 28mm focal length is equivalent to the focal length used by cell phones and people who are used to selfies taken with a phone like the 28mm perspective. It takes surprisingly good portraits though you have to get very close to frame them.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh

I am in love with this 28mm f/1.8G

big m, B&H Photo
8 July 2014
  • Excerpt: They say don't pay any attention to the gold band. They say that there is no comparison with the 35mm f/1.8. I'm using a D5100, I've shot a many shots with the 35mm f/1.8 and I really love this lens. It does everything for me that I've needed, but I just wasn't satisfied with my products/photos. So I decided to invest in myself by purchasing a better lens with nano crystal and a wider lens. This was a great decision.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction

Amazing Fast Lens

Photo Steve, B&H Photo
28 June 2014
  • Excerpt: I havent used this lens too much, but so far it is amazing. In my eyes it appears very sharp wide open and produces some beautiful photos. I have so far used the lens to shoot low light situations which my intentions for this lens originally was and still is. I shot a friend's concert with this lens and the images turned out really good. I love the fact that it is super light, although sometimes that makes it feel as if it is not as durable as my other lenses.
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Low Light, Nice Bokeh
  • Cons: Durable

Prerfect companion for my D610

Sunny, B&H Photo
27 June 2014
  • Excerpt: Used for landscapes and general walkaround scenics. Focus is faster than I can compose shots. Feels like plastic but performs like all metal.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh

New Nikon 28 mm F1.8 prime

Rogar, Adorama
24 June 2014
  • Excerpt: I bought this lens for street photography and some landscape work. It is a lot lighter to carry about than the Nikon professional zoom. Very crisp image at 2.8 and above. Bokeh is good at F1.8-2.8 but not quite as pretty as lenses with 9 leaflets. Unlike the 35mm f1.8 lens, Nikon put its nanocoating on this one--not sure why they left it off the 35 mm.Crisper image than the 35 mm. Still, for street photography, I prefer the 35 mm space to 28.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
  • Cons: Slow Focus, Weak Casing
