    Competent and inexpensive: bargain “normal” lens for DX, October 26, 2009

    This review is from: Nikon 28mm f/2.8D AF Nikkor Lens for Nikon Digital SLR Cameras (Electronics)

    This is an undistinguished but competent lens, a viable solution for DX users looking for a “normal” lens at a bargain price, and a useful and inexpensive wide angle for FX and film shooters.

    It can not be said that Nikon spared no expense in the development of this lens. They spared plenty, settling on a minimalist, simple, proven optical formula, without the close-range correction (CRC) used in some of its more-expensive contemporaries, and with an unambitious f/2.8 maximum aperture. That last detail, in today’s world of small-frame DX DSLRs, becomes the lens’ single major drawback. Today’s zoom lenses are good enough to equal the performance of a prime in most regards, making fast apertures the last remnant of fixed-focal-length superiority in the minds of most photographers, and a prime lens as slow as an f/2.8 professional zoom is left with comparatively little to recommend it. Yet that has ironically led to this lens’ one significant advantage: it has remained cheap while prices for other lenses have risen significantly, and for those whose needs it meets, it can be seen as quite a bargain.

    Its performance is perfectly respectable. In fact, wide-open at normal shooting distances, it is already quite sharp, something that can not be said for many fast primes, and it manages to provide crisp, modern, contrasty color renditions, no doubt thanks to state of the art – as of its introduction – lens coatings. It has the nice, rather frictionless focus feel that was common to most early AF primes, with the easy-to-reach, front-mounted focusing ring that was a welcome holdover from manual-focus days. Many newer lenses, with focus rings hidden from easy reach (behind the zoom ring, for example) are much more difficult to use when manual focus is called for, although most do have the advantage of allowing instant manual over-ride. Like any AF-D lens, the user of this lens must flip a switch on the camera body to disengage the focus motor and switch from auto to manual focus.

    There is one other nice feature of this lens that holds up very well in today’s DSLR world, and that it its 28mm focal length. While anything in the 28mm-35mm range can be considered a “normal” lens for DX, Nikon’s own 35mm DX prime is a bit on the long side for many, and at 28mm this lens represents an excellent alternative. I’ve owned and used (and posted a review of) the 35/1.8G, and I love it, but in my opinion this is one of its drawbacks. I personally prefer the slightly wider field of view of the 28mm perspective, which in my experience is a bit handier for indoor photography in tighter spaces and a bit more natural-feeling as a “normal” lens for DX. Sigma’s 30mm f/1.4 is another alternative, and faster, but I found my copy to be mediocre at wide apertures and would generally hold it to f/2.8 or so anyway, taking away much of its advantage of speed – and it is a much more expensive lens.

    The 28mm begins to look like a very good choice when its workmanlike performance, its “normal” field of view, and its small size are considered against its very low current price. For DX users, this lens is not exactly a bargain when purchased new – it is more expensive than the 35mm/1.8G, for example – but used prices are a different story, and for photographers willing to buy used, it can be a bargain. For a DX shooter on a budget, who is looking for a “normal” lens and who does not already have a professional-level midrange zoom that offers an f/2.8 aperture, the 28mm can be a uniquely affordable and versatile tool for general photography. Combined with inexpensive standard and telephoto zooms, this lens can complete a modest collection of starter lenses that will leave very few types of photography off limits. In fact, somebody looking to start out in SLR photography on a budget could do a lot worse than to pick up a decent copy of this lens, a used Nikon D50/D70/D80, and begin making pictures limited in quality only by their own talents.

    My rating of three stars for this lens should not be considered negative. I don’t think a higher rating is justified, and I don’t believe in rating lenses on a sliding scale depending on their price – a four star lens is a four star lens, whether it sells for $150 or ten times that. It is up to the reader to make their own judgement as to whether the price makes the lens a more or less compelling purchase. This lens does exactly what it is supposed to do, and it does it well. The basis for my rating is as follows: the lens performs competently, but not spectacularly, as a 28mm prime. By itself, that would probably justify four stars, but it’s only fair to also take into account its very modest design capabilities. Its slow speed in particular, compared with other lenses of its type, reduces its appeal; and the lack of a sophisticated, highly corrected optical formula is a factor as well. This lens, while possibly a bargain and a fine…

    This review is from: Nikon 28mm f/2.8D AF Nikkor Lens for Nikon Digital SLR Cameras (Electronics)
    This is my second copy of this lens. I sold my first one when I went digital and didn’t think I would need it anymore. However I found zoom lens were sometimes to large or slow and found myself wanting a fixed prime lens for my Nikon D300. So I bought another one a few months ago and love it. It is the equivalent of a 42mm on my D300 and it stays on the camera most of the time. It is sharp, has beautiful colors and is lightweight. I use it mostly for landscape photography and set the aperture and focus manually for the greatest depth of field.

    A very well made lens.

    Despite the many mediocre reviews of this prime lens, I like it. Zoom lenses are labor savers, and I own many. But in general prime lenses are sharper.

    I am using this on the Nikon D700 full frame (FX) camera, and I am happy with its performance.
