AF-S NIKKOR 28mm f/1.8G
Bright and Compact Wide Angle Lens
The Nikon 28mm f/1.8 wide angle lens is compact, optically superb, and great for nighttime hand held photography. Below are two photos taken at night, hand held, at a shutter speed of 1/125 of a second, an aperture of f/1.8, ISOs of 450 and 3200, Auto White Balance, and Matrix Metering.

This lens is very sharp. The size is nice for holding. The weight is light. The price is reasonable. If that were not enough, the DXO on this lens is up there with the 24mm 1.4 which costs about $1500.00 more.

Amazing results from this lens
I just purchased this lens, ran a bunch of tests at high ISO at f1.8, 2.8 and 4, all available light at several distances - everything sharp as a razor. Used it on an assignment and very pleased with the images, clear, crisp and good color. When I opened the box, I was concerned because this lens is so light - the results are there, that is what counts. My work is primarily for publications, available light photography is the norm.

MACRO! Nice surprise
Distortion is well controlled and sharpness is maintained from f/1.8 wide open. I have tested many lens's and they all are pretty soft at wide open aperture. Not this lens. I also dont see any focus issues at f/1.8 as well. Color and contrast is superb and images are sharp from edge to edge.

Light weight, sharp, and easy on the wallet!
Got this lens this past Christmas, and have yet taken it off my camera. very sharp, auto-focus is not bad at all, and its light, so its a great walk around lens. I have done night shots, portrait shots, and even some micro shots with it, and I am very happy with the result with this lens. but one thing to keep in mind, you will get flares when you are at certain angles to the light. for me, i just move to the side a little and retake the shot, and the flares disappear. so, if you are thinking about this lens, get it. I love it!!!
