Nikon 28mm f/1.4 overview

  • 1Description

A fast and versatile wide-angle prime, the AF-S NIKKOR 28mm f/1.4E ED from Nikon is a flexible lens designed for FX-format F-mount DSLRs. Pairing with the comfortable focal length is the bright f/1.4 maximum aperture, which benefits working in low-light conditions and also offers increased control over depth of field. The optical construction utilizes two extra low-dispersion glass elements to correct chromatic aberrations and color fringing for notable clarity and color fidelity, and Nano Crystal and Super Integrated Coatings have also been applied to suppress lens flare and ghosting for greater contrast when working in strong lighting conditions. Additionally, three aspherical elements are used to control spherical aberrations and distortion for high sharpness and accurate rendering.

Balancing the optical attributes, the lens is also characterized by a Silent Wave Motor that produces fast, smooth, and quiet autofocus capabilities, along with the ability to manually override focus at any time for more selective control. A rear focusing system also helps maintain the overall lens length during use by solely moving the rear lens group during use for faster performance. An electromagnetic diaphragm is also featured for greater exposure control stability that is especially beneficial when working with faster continuous shooting rates.

Versatile wide-angle prime is designed for FX-format Nikon F-mount cameras, however can also be used on DX models where it provides a 42mm equivalent focal length.
Notably fast f/1.4 maximum aperture benefits working in difficult lighting conditions and also affords increased control over depth of field.
Two extra-low dispersion glass elements are used in the optical construction to reduce a variety of chromatic aberrations and color fringing for a high degree of clarity and color neutrality.
Three aspherical elements are featured to control spherical aberrations and distortion in order to produce notable sharpness and resolution.
Nano Crystal and Super Integrated Coatings have been applied to lens elements to minimize surface and internal reflections for a marked reduction in lens flare and ghosting.
Silent Wave Motor affords quick, quiet, and precise autofocus performance along with full-time manual focus override. A rear focusing design is also used, where only the rear lens group is moved during focusing, to maintain the overall length of the lens during use and to promote faster focusing speeds.
Fluorine coating on front element affords protection to the optical system.
Dust- and moisture-resistant lens barrel benefits the lens' use in inclement conditions.
Specialized electromagnetic aperture mechanism provides greater exposure control stability that is especially beneficial when working with fast continuous shooting rates.

This mechanism limits the compatibility of this lens to the following cameras: D5, D4, D3 series, Df, D850, D810, D810A, D800/E, D750, D700, D610, D600, D500, D300/S, D7500, D7200, D7100, D7000, D5600, D5500, D5300, D5200, D5100, D5000, D3400, D3300, D3200, D3100, Nikon 1 J1, J2, J3, J4 with FT-1, Nikon 1 V1, V2, V3 with FT-1, and Nikon 1 S1, S2 with FT-1.

Nikon 28mm f/1.4 reviews

AF-S NIKKOR 28mm f/1.4E ED Lens is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from One wedding, one lens I recently purchased the Nikon 28mm f/1.4 E ED lens to use for the usual wide stuff. Two weeks after purchase, a friend asked me to shoot his wedding, so I loaded up the 85mm f/1.4; 24-70mm f/2.8; 70-200mm f/2.8; and the 14-24mm f/2.8 with the 28mm f/1.4 on the D5. Albeit, I had reasonable freedom of movement in the church, with the majority of shots no flash. Never took the 28 off the camera and was very pleased with the results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional at f/1.4 I paired this with a D810, and the sharpness and rendering in the central half is like no other Nikkor wide angle I have seen before - outstanding. At f/1.4, things fall off outside the central half, but in a very nice way. By f/2.8, things are really good out to the corners, and superb at f/5.6. There seems to be little field curvature and no focus shift upon stopping down. Compared to the other Nikkor wide angle primes (1.4 and 1.8), this really seems to be a leap forward. The 28mm FL is a bit of a change from the traditional set: My previous WA lens kit (from the D700 days) was the 14-24, 24 f/1.4, and 35 f/1.4. Moving to D8XX showed issues of focus shift with the 14-28, and wide open the 1.4's just did not cut it. The alternative, the 16-35, just had too many weaknesses. Bu, those lenses were quite a lot of weight to carry (harder each year ....). Trimming down now to this lens (28 1.4) and a Milvus 18mm (outstanding) works well in terms of simplification and a dramatic increase in sharpness/rendering for D8XX, especially wide open. I highly recommend the 28 1.4.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You Get What You Pay For First, this lens is not cheap. I initially laughed at the idea that anyone would spend so much on a 28mm prime. Later, after looking through my Lightroom metadata I realized that I used my 28mm 1.8G lens more than any other. I also learned that I used my 24 - 70mm 2.8G lens even less. So I decided to Do the Dew, sell those, and buy this. < br> I shot professionally on the side. It's not a full-time job. Having said that, I wanted a lens that would up the image quality of the already impressive 28mm 1.8G but with a better build, better handing in back light situations, and fast (but quiet) focus. Does this lens deliver? < br> Yes. If you're a fan of the 28mm focal length you'll love this lens. It balances well on my D750 (even without a grip). It's incredibly fast to focus, and (generally) finds focus well in harsh back lighting. Additionally, fringing is much better handled than the 1.8G. Bokeh is very pleasing (if you're into that for wide lenses), but color and contrast are absolutely stellar. < br> This has become my go-to lens for anything which doesn't require a specific look. It's not cheap, but if it's going to be the lens that's always on your camera, it's worth the money. If not, the 1.8G is a great piece of glass for a fraction of the cost. < br> Images: Car (shot at 1.4 with ambient light on the fly, at night) and Kid (shot at 4.0 with bounce flash)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a super lens You have to love a 28mm lens; I do.� Starting with a 3 week trip to the Desert SW in 2010, where it was my go to lens, through many episodes of event work, that format just works for me. I said that if Nikon ever produced one of their super lenses in 28mm, I'd have to buy it. What I wasn't prepared for was the super price. However, I knew that I would never forgive myself if I didn't, at least, try it. So for my birthday present to myself, I rented the lens for a week.� Big mistake; I was hooked. I bought the lens. It's really sharp, with great resolution (they're different to me), very little noticeable distortion, and has pleasing bokeh, especially for a wide angle.� It's a little heavy but balances perfectly on my D810, where it has stayed since it arrived last month. Most reviews that I read before renting the lens found the lens to be grudgingly great, even though the reviewers were not 28mm fans. If you speak 28mm, this is the lens for you.� When you look at a print of the example photo below, you can "feel" the grit of the terra cotta and the splinters of the logs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent resolution The MTF diagram is right about this lens: wide open, it is much sharper than the 35mm/1.4G and the 24mm/1.4G. This lens is head and shoulder above other Nikkor F1/4 lenses. Worth it and I recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow. This was a surprise for me. I love fast glass and the bokeh it produces. The 14-24 has been staple for me but I just wanted more low-light performance and I've gravitated more towards 24mm in my shots. This lens fit the bill on everything I was looking for so finally jumped on it! From the few days I've used it - I'm already certain the FoV is perfect for me.
