Cons:Sharpness, distortion among the worst I've seen.
Opinion:I can not understand all these positive reviews on sharpness I consider myself a professional of the trade. I did a lot of testing has everything except sharpness especially at the edges. The sharp photos made with this lens I had to post produce so much to achieve a nice sharpness or even I have to close to F11 to have the sharpness you need in a lens of this kind. The distortion present in this lens is unprecedented in Nikon fixtures. But it manages very well the counter light in this sense is the best for this reason it kept it because finding also beautiful colors and lights managed more than very well make it a good compromise. My rating of 6 out of 10. The sufficiency for its magnificent lightness and management of the lights. I recommend buying only for landscape use where the loss of sharpness is not noticeable.
Pros:Extreme sharpness, excellent readability of shadows and tightness of highlights, compactness, lightness, distortion correction, price
Opinion:A must have for Nikonists. First of all, weight and small dimensions invite you to always carry it with you, perhaps in combination with a zoom: for example, associated with the 28-300 and a fifty or a medium-bright canvas (such as the light and excellent 50 or 85 1.8) allows you to cover almost every photographic need with a manageable effort. And this is a great advantage because heavy optics always end up leaving them at home. The optical performance is excellent: as sharpness and aperture of the shadows it is superior even to less pushed and high quality optics (such as the zeiss 25 f/ 2). The color rendering is excellent. The aperture at 1.8 absolutely remarkable for a lens of this focal length, expanding its operating capabilities to all light conditions. I also own the excellent Irix 15, but in my opinion the Nikon in question is a killer, in the sense that its compactness, lightness, brightness and wide focal length discourages in most cases the use of bulky and heavy ultra-wide-angle monsters.
Pros:Weight, general yield, flare resistance, construction quality also alse plasticosa, 1.8
Cons:Cost, not tropicalized
Opinion:I have been possessing this lens for quite a while, I bought it for photo releases where I can afford to bring the REFLEX. I use it in my little ff kit which is 20 and 50 both 1.8. I preferred them to a zoom lens for weight, both are much lighter than a 24-120 for example, and it would also allow me to have an almost 85, still having much higher quality. The lens is fantastic, not too open, not too closed, easily transportable, has an excellent yield, if you then close at 2.8 from already the maximum of itself. I feel like recommending it to those who want a high-performance, light optics, which can be used in landscapes but also at night. The only negative note is the price, in my opinion too high for its range of use.
Opinion:Great wide angle, a real handyman. Thanks to its lightness and usability in all situations (also thanks to the unimer common opening of 1.8) I always take it with me when it comes to taking wide photos: the lightness of the lens takes away the temptation to leave it at home ... In the backlight it leaves me speechless and this really is its best quality: some of my favorite photos were taken with this lens directly with the sun in the frame and the yield hardly suffers... and the sun becomes a beautiful star that enhances the shot. I tried for a few days the legendary Nikon zoom 14- 24 f/ 2.8 G ED of a friend... and I confess that I was not comfortable: it will be that I am used to fixes, it will be the weight but precisely that lens did not convince me: ghost lights, flares, ugly rendering in backlight ... Nothing to do with this nice little gem I own. Try to believe: sharpness and three-dimensionality, color rendering and ease of use make it a versatile and fun lens. Ah well... It is castrated (... It doesn't have the opening ring). But now in the manual you no longer go, in case you play with ISOs ... in my opinion, of course! Conclusion: Nikonist friends if you want a light, fun and practical wide angle for DSLR give us a thought... in my opinion you will not regret it. Good light wide at all !
Pros:Optically high quality, light, 77mm screw filters, very bright
Cons:Not tropicalized (but it's small, protecting it is easy)
Opinion:This 20mm G-series is optically great, spectacular. It's also small, lightweight, with 77mm screw filters. The 20mm focal is also very well balanced as wide-angle, not too pushed (e.g.14mm) but more versatile than 24mm. In my opinion it is an optics to have absolutely for the landscape, to travel and use filters without too much weight, low costs and with great comfort. Those who know how to handle the wide-angle can also make excellent portraits set.
