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.

Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
