A flexible wide-angle prime, the Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 28mm f/1.8G mixes a comfortable, broad field of view with a relatively compact design. A bright f/1.8 maximum aperture excels in difficult light conditions and also affords control over depth of field for isolating subjects. The optical design includes a pair of aspherical elements, which help to suppress distortion and spherical aberrations in order to realize high sharpness, even illumination, and accurate rendering. Also benefitting image quality, both a Nano Crystal Coat and a Super Integrated Coating have been applied to control flare and ghosting for improved contrast and color accuracy. Additionally, complementing the imaging capabilities, a Silent Wave Motor affords fast and precise autofocus performance, along with full-time manual focus override, to benefit both stills and video applications.

Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 28mm f/1.8G Reviews
I traded in a 35mm f/1.8 Nikkor G for this lens. It gives the greater angle I want. The 35 was too much like a 50. This lens is very sharp. With a D810 it gives more detail than I can use. It has a good feel, focus is nice. It’s physically more substantial than the 35.
Bought one 5 years ago, gave that one to my daughter and got a new one for myself.� I really like this lens, and it pairs perfectly with my 58mm f/1.4 on my D750.� Zero complaints.� The lens works great for me.
Sharp, bright, contrasty, beautiful.
On my D850 I get stunning images, even if it’s an accidental shot of my shoe, OK? Same focal length as iPhone, so it’s very familiar and fun to work with.
Not as good as expected
I'm not sure if this lens is a genuine one or a refurbished one. Look like new. When I received it, there even don't have a receipt in the package. Even the warrant sheet in the box, the very small font denoted that I need the receipt to let this warrant be available. I shoot couple of the picture with this lens, the picture quality is OK but the focus ring is SO... loose, a little bit figure tip touch will make the ring turn.
I recommend this lens whole heartedly
This lens is fast, quiet and easy to use. I recommend it to anyone who wants or needs a versatile wide angle lens.
Unbelievable Sharp and Fast
If you are thinking to buy or not this lens, I would say go for it. This 28mm lens is unbelievable sharp, fast and lightweight. Fits PERFECTLY on my D700 and D750. First I wanted to go for 24mm but for what I do 28mm is wide enough. Very happy whith it.
NIKKOR OEM FTW!!!
There simply is no replacing glass that is made by the same manufacturer as the body it’s mated to! Even with the rise of multiple 3rd party competitors, NIKKOR is still top tier! I have replaced the 35mm focal range with this 28mm lens...now I don’t feel so cramped when shooting street photography and general shots.
Amazingly sharp wide open. At f/2.8, performance is in par with its older brother Nikkor 28mm f/1.4. The lens shows very little distortion, images are contrasty and CA free. Great value for the money! Highly recommended.
