Pros: Weight, footprint, distance scale, contrast and colors

Cons: Not very sharp especially at the edges, ta vignetting and suffers a lot from flares

Opinion: An optics that has accompanied me for more than a year now (I mainly do landscapes) difficult not to fall in love with it.. very beautiful colors and contrast not exaggerated.. it's small and you stick it comfortably in your pocket as well. With the distance scale it is a moment to work in hyperfocal and being a 20mm can allow you wide views with a "natural" view not too "extreme". On the other hand, it suffers a lot from flares even with original mounted lampshander (let's not forget that it is a wide angle and is also from '89). The overall sharpness is not the maximum (especially at the edges) better to close between f/5.6 and f/11, but for the project of the time and used now on digital, in my opinion, it can still give many satisfactions!

Pros: Economic optics and low weight

Cons: Detail loss at the edges

Opinion: I confirm the views of the forumers expressed above. The positives are essentially the low cost and especially lightness and clutter for an optics that however closed diaphragms returns a very good result (around f/5.6). Below it loses detail especially on the sides. Good colors very natural and warm but in my opinion less rich than 50 f/1.4D

Pros: Optical yield with closed diaphragms. Microcontracting and chromatic rendering. Compactness and weight.

Cons: Detail to open diaphragms edges. AC evident at the edges. Beware of the flare.

Opinion: On D810 already sharp at f/2.8 centrally but to have acceptable edges you need to work at least f/5.6. However, to have the best you need to close at least f/8 - f/11. Until f/11 the dif-break is still under control, at f/16 (on D810) begins to soften the details. The color rendering compared to the new 20mm 1.8G I find it better as the colors are more muted and less contrasted (cursed G...). The general microcontract looks better as well as the tonal passages. It suffers a lot of AC compared to the nikon 14-24mm 2.8G not to mention the Zeiss 21mm 2.8 which is practically perfect (with the software however it resolves well). It's an optics that I used a lot on film and still today it can be used on digital as long as you know the limits especially to the edges to the most open diaphragms. Do I recommend it? Depends on usage. If your photograph focuses on the subject in the middle-central field the 20 AFD is fine. If you need sharpness at the edge level of the frame up to edges then better consider other optics.

Pros: Small size, low weight, 52mm filters, overall yield (colors, microcontrast, tonal steps), good resistance to flare.

Cons: Less sharp than the 20mm f1.8G between f2.8 and f5.6 (above virtually equal), not tropicalized.

Opinion: I carried out intensive testing within a day, so for long-term opinions I will update if I notice differences. Let's start against: less sharp than the 20mm f1.8G between f2.8 and f5.6. Not tropicalized. End. As a overall rendering I prefer it to my already loved 20mm f1.8G. Better tonal steps, best microcontrast with lower general contrast, best tonal steps (already said, I repeat to reiterate the concept), more open shadows. I mean, it's an old-fashioned view. Why did I take it despite already having 20mm f1.8G? Because I love the yield of the d series (currently I have 20mm, 35mm, 50mm and 85mm) and especially because you do not beat it for weight and small size. Working the photo in pp gets sharpness comparable to 20mm f1.8 G. If the most extreme edges are a problem, just cut them out (taking them into account when shooting). The coma at the corners on ff is scary, but again, I crop them into pp and farewell problem. A view that won me over. Update: After a few days of use, coupled with my D600, this lens gave me some of my most beautiful shots.

Pros: Dimensions, lightness, construction, general yield

Cons: To be used on FX, on DX it goes bad. Af noisy

Opinion: The vintage alternative, compact and better built to the current line of the G series. Sharpness still good already at f / 4 (on full frame) and excellent at intermediate diaphragms, on the contrary it is less resolving. Returns colors vaguely warmer than the latest generation lenses and is less contrasted, features that can be appreciated in the landscapes. Compactness remains its great advantage over current fixtures and zooms, while maintaining good image quality.
