Pros: Price in the second-hand market, focal range, excellent colors, weight and macro function, very little diffraction with closed diaphrammo

Cons: None, it's an AF-D is from 1999 and it would be stupid to make comparisons with current optics

Opinion: ....you can define the Swiss army knife of Nikon's all-round lenses. It does everything and also well given the age of the project. I have been using it since 2000 with the D1, now I continue to use it on the D600, and in manual focus on the Z. An absolutely not famous and noble optics, but those who know it and have understood its potential keep it tight. Until recently it was just a few euros away... now it is a little more expensive. Compact, light, excellent focal range, from 50mm to 105 macro, (not comparable to a real Nikon Micro, but its job does it well). It is a 20-year optics, the auto focus is not a missile (but it is precise, after verification and calibration in the Machine) it clearly does not have the sharpness of the new Z, but it has its own character, a good three-dimensionality and a blurred of other times, very soft and cinematic. One of its greatest merits, (I used it a lot in the studio for stil life and ADV) almost does not suffer from diffraction, excellent at f22. I recommend it to everyone, given what it costs and what it offers ..... as long as you want to understand it, and do not think you have the performance of hyper sharpness and super contrast of today's lenses. For those who want to learn more, an interesting video review on the Nikonists channel: www.youtube.com/watch?v=gkzHfjJAv2o&t=3s

Pros: focal range, versatility, fidelity of shooting and colors, old-fashioned colorimetry, lightness

Cons: AF accuracy, sharpness, noise in the MAF

Opinion: Today, after a few months, I decided to redo the fine adjustment of the AF in the car to my optics including precisely this 28-105. I wanted to compare it and compare it to the 28 ƒ2.8 same series that I have had for the longest time and I have always considered it chromatically beautiful, neutral, alive and with open shadows as I like it. I performed the test with controlled light (3400K) from above using a diffuser (white umbrella). I must say that there are some differences: meanwhile the 28-105 in my possession suffers from a strong backfocus so much so that the fine calibration came to me almost at full scale but once calibrated it had to play at par with the fixed 28. I did 3 tests at ƒ4 (simply because the zoom starts from 2.5) at ƒ8 and at ƒ11 which is my closing of choice making mostly panoramas or photos of food. The first thing I noticed is the minimum focusing distance: the fixed wins. True that the 28-105 has the function "macro" but this part from 50mm and therefore for the comparative test I could not use it. The color is more truthful that of the 28-205 but the image seems all flatter (less microcontrast that has nothing to do with sharpness) slightly more padded on 3/4 tone or from 50% to 80% and the shadows are more closed. It is as if the image from 50% was below 1/3 of abundant stop. Regarding the sharpness if ƒ11 wins by far the 28-105, to ƒ4 I prefer that of the fixed (it is not certain that it is to throw the other). Even the blurred, beautiful on both optics, is more accentuated (therefore preferable) that of the 20-105. I also had the opportunity to test it with the AF-S 24-85 VR that I always have in my kit and I keep fixed on the other Nikon and here the tests done at 85mm if on the one hand they go in favor of VR (sharpness, speed and ACCURACY AF) for the pastiness, colorimetry, less "vivacity" of the colors compared to the new models, shade of shadows, focal excursion, the small macro available, make you lean towards the old 28-105; in fact the 9 slats are all shown and if they had been rounded it would have been the best. I start to see it in second-hand stores at ridiculous prices so much so that while giving up VR in many cases useful freehand, I am changing my optical equipment in favor of the AF-D series Today nikon on this range of focal lengths offers the 24-120 but that, proven, nothing to do with the beauty of this: in fact, I recommend it to those who need a handyman lens to always keep attached to the car and shoot in any situation; in many cases it could be the only one to take for a day out of town; less recommended for those who love sharpness and micro contrast: there are fixed, maglio se f2,8. Would I buy it? YES - Would I sell it? Absolutely NO - Would I recommend it? YES but here it depends on the taste of individual people. I would have liked to include comparative tests but I don't see the possibility of inserting JPEGs

Pros: Super optics, bright colors, fabulous boken, good focal hike, perfect focus

Cons: Don't take it before

Opinion: I own a D810, first I had over the recent Tamron 28/70 (first series) but I was not fully satisfied (in a short time it was filled with dust), then in the well-known chain of northern Italy I replaced it with a Sigma 24/35 Art but you want for the weight, or for the huge size, or for the narrow focal point (but I knew this before taking it) the feeling that maybe such an optics deserved did not start. Reading here and there I discover this perspective at the end of the 90s, I keep an eye on several European sites where it is proposed between 100 and 250 euros and in a few days all sold. I waited a few days, I find one in Spain, perfect at just over a 100ne and I took it. I think it is fabulous; light, macro, good hike, crisp and vibrant colors. My only fear is that, from today, because of this Nikon 90s/2000s, the huge, beautiful and very heavy Art will remain closed in the house ...

Pros: price, weight, focal excursion, versatility, fidelity of shooting and colors

Cons: difficulty finding it used in good/excellent condition

Opinion: They don't do it anymore unfortunately, I bought it practically new at a very honest price ... a little out of curiosity given the various reviews and a bit to have a whole do that I missed. This is a lens that I absolutely define as "HONEST" ... it doesn't give you anything more than you can expect, but not less. Someone also said that you can call a lens "WYSIWYG" (what you see is what you get) that is what you see and what you get... that's exactly how it is, it doesn't alter reality and it's very faithful in the reproduction of the scene

Pros: it is cheap, light and small. decidedly sharp

Cons: AF accuracy

Opinion: I tried the tris 28-105, 28-135 and 28-200. they seemed aligned as a performance in general in fact I chose the 28-200 for the most excursion. are light and definitely performing. blurry pleasant. Sharp. very beautiful colors. on the d800 I found it very difficult to get a constantly precise focus. most of the time it was always wrong. nothing was worth trying to calibrate. check well that they focus properly. in the end I deleted it mainly for this reason.
