Nikon Nikkor AF 20mm f/2.8D

“Nikkor AF 20mm f/2.8D is the ultra-wide angle lens. ...”

Written on: 17/05/2000 by CyberPOP. (1 review written)

Good Points
Wide wide wide, reasonably fast lens, not expensive, take 62mm filter, low distortion, ok-color correction and saturation.

Bad Points
distortion (even though it's very low), incorrect color correction (even though it's very low), color seems to be fade -not saturate even I put E100VS. Flare and hard to correct with the designed hood. Slightly vignetting at wide open -but not serious.

General Comments
Nikkor AF 20mm f/2.8D is the ultra-wide angle lens. It is one of the gems that Nikon ever made for the planet. For around 400 bucks, you can go wide wide wide with very low distortion. The pictures turn out to be sharp edge-to-edge. At f/2.8, you might have vignetting problem, but not serious. I found it's great at f/4 (in case you don't want great DOF). The far focus seems to be blur if colors are not much different, for instance, shooting Fall season with B&W. I think the problem is color-tone of this lens. But it's acceptable for this price. A combination of this lens with Nikkor 50/1.4 AFD, 80-200 AFD-ED-IF and one Nikon body can make you enjoy the world for the rest of your life.

Great review - nice work, nice advice..
I have a question for you however?
I recently purchased a Sigma 20mm f1.8, a Nikon 50mm f1.4 and a Nikon FM3A.
If I wish to continue with the lens range, can I enjoy AF ZOOMs on the FM3A - considering there is only manual focussing capability? I ask this with specific reference to the Nikkor AF 80-200mm.
Many thanks for your help
Also, do you have a view on the Sigma lens above.
