Nikon AF NIKKOR 20mm f/2.8D Overview

Offering an impressively broad field of view, the AF NIKKOR 20mm f/2.8D from Nikon is a compact and lightweight lens well-suited for landscape, interior, and travel photography. Its modest f/2.8 maximum aperture helps achieve a balance between its sleek size 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. Close Range Correction also helps to ensure consistent image quality and accurate rendering throughout the focusing range. 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 30mm 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.
Close Range Correction system helps to maintain consistent image quality throughout the entire focusing range, from the minimum focusing distance of 9.8" to infinity.
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

Will AF work on Nikon D5300?
Asked by: Anonymous
No, the autofocus will not work in the Nikon D5300 with that lens. The D5300 needs a lens that has a built in focus motor to be able to autofocus. The Nikon branded lenses marked as AF-S have a motor the ones marked only with an AF do not.This is the version that auto-focuses on the D5300, Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 20mm f/1.8G EDB&H # NI2018 Mfr # 20051http://bhpho.to/1vQakc2

You can use the Nikon AF Nikkor 20mm f/2.8D lens on a Sony A7 with the use of Nikon F mount lens to Sony E mount camera adapter, such as the Voigtlander adapter for Sony E Mount cameras http://bhpho.to/1jwxfRW. The limitations are that you will not retain any electronic lens functions.

Thinking about getting this Nikon AF NIKKOR 20mm ...

Thinking about getting this Nikon AF NIKKOR 20mm f/2.8D Lens. I already own tamron 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5 Di II VC HLD. Should I stick with the Tamron or add this one to my collection. Would the Nikkor 20mm be a step down for me? Any suggestions on this? Thank you.
Asked by: Josef
The Nikon AF Nikkor 20mm f/2.8D lens would be the sharper of the two lenses listed above. The Nikon AF Nikkor 20mm f/2.8D lens is sharper, would have a constant f/2.8 aperture, and has a slight advantage in distortion performance. The Tamron SP 10-24MM F/3.5-4.5 Di II LD Aspherical IF Lens for Nikon does have slightly better chromatic aberration performance, but for overall performance at the 20mm focal length, the Nikon AF Nikkor 20mm f/2.8D lens would be the better performing lens.

question

I have a Nikon D3000, and was looking at the Nikkor 20mm f/2.8D. One, will it fit on my Nikon mount? Two, I read on your website that the autofocus isn't compatible with this lense, is this a big problem? What do I sacrifice? Will it still work? Thanks.
Asked by: Anonymous
The Nikon AF 20mm f/2.8D lens is compatible with the D3000. The only limitation of using this lens on the D3000 is that autofocus will not be supported: you would need to manually focus the lens. Autofocus can be useful with the introductory DSLRs as their viewfinders arent as large or bright as the pro level DSLRs or as the older 35mm film SLRs. Though, if you are comfortable with manually focusing the lens, the lack of autofocus would be the only draw-back of using this lens on the D3000.
