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.

Will this autofocus on a Nikon Z7?

Will this autofocus on a Nikon Z7?
Asked by: Keith
I'm sorry but no, the FTZ adapter has no focus motor, so therefore it will be manual focus only.

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

Hi, I'm a real amateur photographer with a Nikon D90 and want to get a wider angle lens (best i have is a 50 mm 1.8) for photographing the northern lights. Considering the 20 mm f/2.8D and the 24 mm f/2.8D. Any comments or recommendations?
Asked by: Linda H.
i would look at the Nikon 10-24mm dx lens, great lens very sharp. This lens give you a 69-109degree field of view. both the 20mm (70 degrees cropped) and the 24mm (61 degree cropped) will be cropped in and not getting the full effect of the lens the 24mm will be more of a 35-45mm lens and the 20mm will be a 30-35mm lens when cropped. if your going to go full frame then either lens will be great!

question

How do you use Manual focus? Do I use the switch on the camera only, or do I just focus it with the ring? Does the af/manual switch effect the lens at all? I do know how to use the locking feature of the aperture ring. So that does not need to be spoken of.
Asked by: Aaron C.
I setup the manual focus adjustment in Nikon D800 camera setup.

question

Can this lens be used with a 62mm PL without obstruction or vignetting? I would be using it for real estate photography and a polarizer would be used frequently.
Asked by: Evan S.
I have never used the lens in that configuration, sorry.
