Excellent lens Very sharp and good contrast. One of my favorites. I use it with film and on an older F3. April 30, 2013
My Go-To lens! I love this lens. It sits squarely on my D80's body 80% of the time. For nearly 30 years I had an FE with a 28mm lens and it was fabulous. Making the jump to digital I looked for another 28mm, but was distracted by the 20mm's impressive reviews. Light weight and easy to carry around for all day excursions. I highly recommend what could very well be one of the best wide angle lens around. And the price won't put you in the poor house. You won't be sorry. Take one for a test drive. Then take it out in the field and put it through its paces. October 10, 2012
superb lens in small package Nikkor 20mm F 2.8 ais works great on my D90. its super sharp, there is little barrel distortion, focusing is smooth and fast, solid build quality like all nikkor ais family. great lens for landscape! March 5, 2012
One of Nikon's best wide angle lenses. Very sharp and well built. Nice size and uses standard 52mm filters. Focuses close and is the perfect standard wide angle lens that Nikon makes. December 17, 2011
Excellent lens!!!!! Get it ASAP!! Excellent lens!!!!! I used it on my Nikon D3 & it works wonders when shooting portraits of clients!!! the color retention is astonishing!!!! I definitely recommend this to anyone who wants a wide-angle prime with great low-light performance!! October 11, 2011

In short, 70° in DX (equivalent to 30mm on film/FX).
