Pros: Size and weight, build, sublime smooth manual focus, image quality from f4, Cheaper than the legendary Al-s, compatibility with higher end Nikon DSLRs

Cons: It's NOT the legendary Al-s!, Metering etc difficulties with lower end Nikon DSLRs

Opinion: Despite me owning two quality FF zooms that cover 28mm at f2.8, they are huge and heavy and not at all suitable for street photography use, especially on a full-frame that they were designed to be used on. I wanted latest Nikkor G 28mm f1.8, but they're about 400 pounds sterling mint secondhand. Saw this old Nikkor on Ebay for 85 pounds sterling, which was all I could afford. I probably should have waited for a f2 version to come up, which is more of what I wanted but would obviously have been more expensive. My f2.8 doesn't focus as close the Al-s, (which was Nikon's flagship 28mm prime for years and years, at a time when this was many photographers second lens), but unlike my AF fast 28mm zooms, the gearing is long, so accuracy is excellent. I use a collapsible rubber lenshood (tiny 52mm filter thread, vs 82mm of my 24-70) that's normally on my 50mm f1.4 and there's no vignetting when in use. Image quality: all those advances in lens technology over the 20-30 years since that allow modern zooms, such aspherical, special glass and computer aided design, mean that this fixed 28mm is almost exactly the same sharpness and contrast, aperture for aperture, as a top zoom. Therefore, wide open, it's good centre with drop toward the corners, usable, if you need to use in low light or minimal depth of field, at f4, snappier contrast and sharper throughout and by mid apertures, able to compete with anything else out there. From reviews and my own feelings, I'd much rather have this lens than the plastic 'D' AF that replaced it and which has a much more basic 5 element optical design and so isn't as good image wise. The lens also works well as a 42mm f2.8 on my DX D7000, giving a much more natural angle of view than a standard 50mm does, which is a bit narrow. My score 8/10

Pros: Strength, softness of the image.

Cons: No one

Opinion: Despite his 30-plus years, does his job great. When you grip feels all the quality and soundness of the targets than once. The focus is "always" manual, even if you use a camera with internal focus motor. Same goes for the diaphragm. The image returns is warmer than today's date from the objectives that arise directly for digital.
