I have to agree that I find the build quality of the 28 1.8G less than appealing, the manual focus ring in particular felt bad. Can't argue with the stellar images it produces, though! If I get any AF lenses for my Nikon kit, it will almost certainly be one of the first I'd get, unless Nikon ever plans to introduce an updated 28 f/1.4.

One from yesterday from the small town of Cupids on the Avalon peninsula of the island of Newfoundland. 28mm f/2.8 AI-s.

Just playing with my 28 1.8g in my basement last night. It's a tremendous lightweight lens, I wish nikon would refresh some more of the older primes to be like this one.

I was hanging out in downtown Toronto on Thursday, and captured this while looking for interesting cityscapes.

Philip - love the shot from Newfoundland! Looks like a gorgeous place. I understand what you mean about the 'feel' of the 28G especially for MF... then again it is nice and light.

Aleksi - the shot of the guy in the hat is similar to a couple images I have gotten used to making with my 28G as well. I characterize them as shallow DOF/the person really pops, bringing in lots of environmental context, and the subject is sharp as blazes. It's a shot I really like and yours is an excellent one. This is my favorite thing to do with the 28mm FL so far...

Not exactly the same but here is one of mine I like;

Can anybody show me any night sky pictures with the 28 1.8g? I'm talking about the shape of the stars.

I ask because there is reported coma in the corners. I can live with some but hope it's not taking up a third of the frame.

Thanks.

Lovely landscape philipj!
I also really like the diversity of the set here, even on the very last page. I recently got the 28/1.8G, really nice lens and with the 1:4 magnification really versatile.

Thanks guys!

Tony - based on that wedding shot, your 28G seems crazy sharp, like they took whatever special sauce is in the 28 AI-s lenses but increased the radius of all the glass. Is there much PP on your shot?

Jelle - wonderful light in your 2nd photo!

I just tested a 28mm f/1.8G against my 28mm f/3.5 AI, the G completely smoked the AI in terms of resolving power at landscape f/stops. Not even close on a D800. The 85 f/2.0 AIS vs 85 f/1.8G is shaping up to be a different story.

I was thinking more of the f/2 and f/2.8 AI-s, but good to know that the f/3.5 isn't up to snuff!

Huddy did a test with his f/2.0 and his 1.8/G for me on his D700. The 1.8G was sharper in that comparison as well, although it's harder to tell at 12 megapixels. Similarly if I compare the 3.5 and 1.8 from a D800 at 50% they look much closer.

Some funky bokeh with the legendary f/1.4! I'd always thought it was a little better than that with quasi-point sources in the far field...

I've also read somewhere that Zeiss is thinking about making a 28 f/1.4 in their new "fancy" line (started with the 55mm f/1.4). I'd be really interested in such a lens....

well thanks everyone, just decided I need a 28mm in my life, though the 24mm AF-D is tempting me too. Either way, awesome pictures and thanks for the little bit of inspiration!
