“Nikon Nikkor AF 28mm f/2.8D - Those photographers who...”

Written on: 19/07/2005 by Jimi (4 reviews written)

Nikon Nikkor AF 28mm f/2.8D - Those photographers who do care about things like low film speed, tripod, mirror lock-up and cable release will be quite happy with this lens: pictures taken with the appropriate technique are very sharp.
The leightweight from Nikon is compatible with all AF-Bodies and can be mounted on MF-Bodies like FM2, FA, F3 or FG etc. because of the barrel-f-stop ring.
It's equipped with a CPU that provides Distance information to 'D'-compatible Bodies for flash-use.

It's an… Read Full Review

“The Nikon Nikkor AF 28mm f/2.8D is a nice compact...”

Written on: 23/09/2003 by oniko (35 reviews written)

The Nikon Nikkor AF 28mm f/2.8D is a nice compact fixed focal lenght lens that is very sharp.

the f-stop of 2.8 makes viewing and focusing easier as the brighter image than a f3.5 and higher zoom.the 28mm is as wide as most people go now and gives a better image than the wide end of most wide angle zooms.

the 52mm filter size makes it easy to get filter such as polarisers and warmup etc to fit it, and nearly no vignetting with two or more filters on it.

in fact the 52mm filter size will fit… Read Full Review

Written on: 27/04/2000 by CyberPOP. (1 review written)

As I said, if you want to have one and ONLY ONE wide angle lens, you can save about a hundred bucks and get this lens. The CRC is close enough to have huge stone as a subject. This lens might be sharp (based on the review)… Read Full Review

What an absurd and unhelpful review.
<br>
<br>Nikon's 28mm f/2.8 AF is a perfectly good and useful lens. I have one and use it a lot. It is a much easier focal length to use successfully than 24mm, 20mm, or wider, but it is still wide enough to either cram a wide scene into a frame, or to show a subject in its environment.
<br>
<br>It is light and no trouble to carry, on or off the camera. It focusses very close (25cm, and effectively closer at small apertures) so it can be used where a zoom lens covering the same FL would be useless.
<br>
<br>If you specialise in using "available darkness" you'll probably lust after something extreme like Nikon's 28mm f/1.4. In reality the price might force you to compromise for some wide angle that goes to f/2. But you pay a LOT more for that extra light. The f/2.8 aperture is good enough to take hand-held shots succesfully in quite low light levels.
<br>
<br>The 28mm f/2.8 is not even expensive. About the only bad things you can say about it are that a) much more costly competitors are faster and (a bit) sharper - no surprises there, a Ferrari is faster and handles better than most Fords - and b) it feels flimsy compared to Nikon's manual focus lenses of old.
