Great lens for the price

Angelica Rose, B&H Photo

  • 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. This has only happened in low light situations.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight

Very sharp and great bokeh.

  • Excerpt: I just started using this lens over the weekend. It's really sharp and the autofocus is nice and fast. The bokeh is beautiful too. I'm only giving it 4 stars because for this amount of money, I would expect it to feel more sturdy. Build quality feels very cheap.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
  • Cons: Weak Casing

A good balance

  • 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

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

No brainer

  • Summary: Used for about a month, overseas and locally. The lens performs quite well. It's bigger than I would like, but lighter and fast. No complaints so far, only about the price for its build. Using on a D800.

Use the center focal point

17Millimeters, Adorama
23 May 2014
  • Excerpt: I have read much about the soft focus on this lens. This lens is not soft! its fast! Wide aperture lenses need the use of the center focal point to achieve the sharpness most of us desire. At least on a lens in this price category. It's not fun to recompose but this lens has impressive performance if you do. I love this glass for having the ability to shoot semi-wide at f1.8. Great for landscape as well as indoors.

Use the center focal point

17Millimeters, B&H Photo
14 May 2014
  • Excerpt: I have seen a lot of remarks on the soft focus for this lens. Wide aperture exposures with this type of prime really need the use of the center focal point.I know its not fun to re-compose but this lens does very well under those conditions. I have the same issue with my 50mm 1.4 on my D800. This is not the D800 edge focus issue BTW.
  • Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
  • Cons: Weak Casing
