| p.1 #8 · Nikon 18mm 1/8 AI-S for FX landscapes? |
The field of view is 100 degrees on the 18 and 94 on the 20. I've not shot with the 18 so can't comment on it, but I have the 20 f/2.8 AI-s and it is a wonderful lens that I expect to get a great deal of use out of on a forthcoming trip to Istanbul. Here are a couple of shots taken in Rotterdam during a trip in 2010. If you need AF, you need AF, but frankly, for landscape work I'm more than happy shooting with these beautifully crafted old Nikkors. I say old despite the fact Nikon still manufactures this lens. When I bought mine used on the Buy and Sell forum, it had the last serial number listed on photosynthesis, so obviously it was recently manufactured. Five more have been added since then, so that must mean something...
Shot wide open at ISO 1600 on the River Maas.
