Nikon AF NIKKOR 28mm f/2.8D Overview

A comfortable wide-angle, the Nikon AF NIKKOR 28mm f/2.8D is a compact and versatile lens well-suited for landscape, nature, and documentary shooting. Its modest f/2.8 maximum aperture strikes a balance between its sleek form factor and being fast enough for working in low-light conditions. In regard to the optics, a Super Integrated Coating has been applied to individual elements to control flare and ghosting for improved contrast and color rendering when working in bright and backlit conditions. Additionally, a rounded seven-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality.

Wide-angle prime lens is designed for FX-format Nikon F-mount cameras, however can also be used with DX models where it provides a 42mm equivalent focal length.
Flexible f/2.8 maximum aperture suits working in a variety of lighting conditions and also offers depth of field control for isolating subjects.
A Super Integrated Coating has been applied to individual elements to suppress internal reflections, flare, and ghosting for improved contrast and color accuracy when working in strong lighting conditions.
Autofocus system is compatible with select Nikon DSLRs that support D-type lenses, and offers quick and precise focusing performance.

Autofocus is not supported by DSLRs lacking an autofocus motor, such as the D3000-series, D5000-series, D40, D40X, and D60, where the lens may be used with manual focus only.
Rounded seven-blade diaphragm promotes a pleasing out of focus quality that benefits the use of shallow depth of field and selective focus techniques.

question

Is this lens compatible for my Nikon D3200
Asked by: Anonymous
This lens will mount onto your D3200 and will permit the auto metering functions to work, but it will not autofocus on the camera as it does not have the required built-in motor to drive the autofocus. This lens would therefore only be able to be manually focused. Unfortunately there are not any fixed focal 28mm lenses by Nikon or any other manufacturers which have the motor built into them.

question

I have a AF-S NIKKOR 24-70 f/2.8. I'm going on a trip to another country and am considering buying this lens. How would I benefit from this lens?
Asked by: Anonymous
The main benefit would be the Nikon AF NIKKOR 28mm f/2.8D Autofocus Lens is smaller and lighter. Otherwise, the 24-70mm f/2.8 would be the better option as it would be both more flexible and would be slightly sharper (one of the few instances a zoom lens is sharper compared to a prime lens).
