p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Nikon 20mm 1.8g Lens Thread


While I thought I was interested in the D750 coming out as the rumors flew, I ended up on the pre-order list for the new Nikkor 20mm 1.8g. If it ends up as good as the 28, 50 and 85, I will be one happy camper. And a pretty good price too. Let's see if the lens delivers. Anyone else there with me?

I've pre-ordered one also.

The 20 2.8D was a favorite lens back in the days of film.

Hopefully this 1.8G will rekindle some of that love.

My best case scenario is that this lens performance is on par with the 28 1.8G, 35 1.8G, and 85 1.8G.

I don't have the 35 but I am mighty pleased with the others. This is my first time for pre-ordering. I am very optimistic on this one.

I learned my lesson and would never ever pre-order any Nikon products in my lifetime.

Well that's a buzz kill.

I'm sure the new lens will be a wonderful addition to anyone's bag.

Wow! I hope I didn't make a giant mistake.
Still looking forward to it. I was astonished at the size, that it is so small. Relatively speaking.

Nikon has absolutely been killing it with the 1.8G's. I expect this one to be stellar as well.

I have had and used the 50 and the 85 for a while. Just recently picked up the 28. I sold the 50 with a camera and missed it so much I had to pick up another one.
That being said I just realized I have kept my manual focus glass in those focal lengths. I must believe I am going to wear out the plastic G lenses. Those metal MF lens bodies are sure comforting.

I ordered one based on my experience with the other 1.8's, and the MTF curves. Though, not impressed with the samples I've seen so far.

Seems like this thread kinda died ... too bad. I am really looking forward to seeing this lens in the flesh... The local big chain here in Toronto apparently has 30 on pre-order across their stores... and they said they will probably start getting them in by first week of October. I am not saying in any way that this lens will replace my 14-24, but it will definitely be a lightweight option.

I haven't been on the front end of any new Nikon lens orders in the past. Typically hold on to see if it's a hit or not before buying but…this one is tempting for me. My question is, since I haven't really paid attention in the past, what is to loose in waiting? Will the price perhaps go up if it's well received?
