Solid but overpriced

  • Excerpt: I needed a wide angle prime for Nikon FX and came down to a refurbished one of these versus a Sigma 35. In the end I went for this largely based on the $ cheaper price. I am satisfied with the lens so far and I've found that the 28mm focal length is a more useful one for me than 35 (I have a 50, a 85, and a 105 prime) and have found this to be a great lens for parties and other indoor events. I find it is a go-to lens in those situations and really like using it.
  • Pros: Generally Sharp, Lightweight, Minimum Focusing Distance, Nice Bokeh, Useful Focal Length, Wide Aperature
  • Cons: feels cheap, Not a great value, Not Always Great Wideopen

Very good lens - just watch out for focus shift

Omar Mohatarem, Amazon
13 January 2014
  • Summary: Overall I'm pretty happy with this lens as I've been wanting a (relatively) moderately priced fast wide-ish angle lens that can also focus in very close. Sharpness, clarity and contrast are all very good, however focus shift can be a slight issue with this lens so just watch out (hence the 4 stars and not 5). Mine doesn't seem to be too badly affected by I can still notice it from time to time depending on the subject matter being photographed.

Great optics, not sure yet about build.

  • Excerpt: This lens offers great optics in a lightweight package. The performance is amazing. It's surprisingly sharp wide open on my D800E and it's tough to beat at f/4-5.6 where I use it most often. It focuses well, locks on fast and seems pretty accurate. And I have used it wide open plenty of times with great results.<br /><br />I do professional documentary work and photojournalism, so I'm pretty tough on my gear. I don't know how this lens will hold up over the long term.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
  • Cons: Focus Slop, Weak Casing

Overall a very good wideangle for landscapes, though not as flare resistant as Zeiss 28mm/2 ZF2 lens.

  • Summary: My favorite focal length for 35mm/Full frame has long been 28mm, and I have owned several 28mm lenses from Nikon and other manufacturers. The Nikkor 28mm/2.8 AFS-G lens is one of the best I have used, and once I got the best AF fine tune value set for my lens on my D800E (-15 for my equip, yours may vary), the lens has met most of my expectations. It is well suited to my landscape photography style.

Great Lens

JDPearl, B&H Photo
19 May 2013
  • Excerpt: I give this 4 stars instead of 5 because as everyone already mentions, the casing feels very cheap. But it functions like an expensive lens and is the perfect size and weight for shooting events which is what I bought it for!
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
  • Cons: Weak Casing

Nice wide lens

BoBCita, B&H Photo
26 April 2013
  • Excerpt: I have just received mine a few days ago and took a series of shots. My preliminary comments so far: <br />1) at the minimum focus distance I can see a tad of focus shift (as reported by several reviews), but I have not yet found it affects my real-world pictures in any significant way;<br />2) it is VERY light;<br />3) bokeh is nice and fast aperture is sufficient to blur effectively the background on a FX body;<br />4) the most annoying thing (so to say) is probably...

Nice standard on Aps-c

Jedi, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: This is a good standard prime for my d7000.. It's autofocus is quick and accurate.. The bokeh is nice and creamy.. The focus ring I was disappointed with and the weak casing but a great lens.
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
