Awesome Prime Lens Great lens for the price. This lens allows for shallow depths-of-field while preserving the ability to capture wide angels. November 3, 2010
Sharp and easy to use it's a very sharp and easy to use wide-angle lens, very nice for Travel September 22, 2010
Very nice little lens for a little pricetag. When I purchased this lens, I had mixed expectations. I wanted a standard 28mm wide angle to keep in my camera bag, but didn't feel like I'd use one enough to justify the price tag on the 1.8G. I haven't been disappointed with this lens in respect to the insignificant amount of money I spent on it. It is respectably sharp, especially considering the price. There are sharper primes out there, but you'll be forking out a good bit more cash for them. The AF is also snappy. Very snappy, actually, which I was surprised by. If your camera doesn't have a built-in AF motor, though, you obviously won't be able to use the AF feature. You could still manually focus with it, and it will still be just as sharp, but that's something people those types of cameras will want to keep in mind. Color and overall IQ is nice with minimal distortion that you really have to look for to find, if you find any at all. Bokeh is also nice, though this is not a lens I'd recommend for portraiture. I've used the lens on full-frame and crop sensor bodies and it has performed well on both. Again, it's not the most used lens in my camera bag, but I do like it enough to keep it in there. May 26, 2014
a surprising performer To my surprise, this lens works very well on FX. My lens dates from 1989 and it does not focus instantly, but the quality is good and the images are surprisingly sharp. The lens is very small and unobtrusive, so it does not call attention to the camera and does not take up much room in the bag, but it gives very good images. The focus is a bit noisy and slow on a D700, a small price to pay for using this old-timer. Build quality is ok; it has held up well for a long time. April 15, 2011
Reliable. Always sharp, except at corners Great lens at f5.6 and above. At apertures greater than this, you will see very obvious distortion at the corners. In terms of price and quality this is very good. I use this lens as my standard lens on my Nikon FM2. I don't bother with the 50mm normal lens. April 14, 2011
Save your money An inferior wide angle lens as you get better results using the standard lens that comes with the camera. Not worth the money I spent to purchase it. January 17, 2012

Answer: 
Depending on your situations. 28mm is not very far and you need to get walk closer to things. I recommend the 50mm F1.8 because it's cheaper and opens wider.

Answer: 
Nikon offers two types of autofocus digital camera bodies: those with a built-in focus drive motor and those which require a lens to have a motor. Cameras such as the D60 do not have a focus motor in it so they require the lens to have the focusing motor – an “AF-S” lens. While these bodies can use a lens with no focus motor (an “AF” lens) you would have to manually turn the focus ring to bring the subject in to sharp focus.

Yes, but obviously no autofocus. The 28mm f/2.8 AI-S would be a great alternative.
