I was surprised there was no thread dedicated for this lens, so I decided to create one.
Nikon 28mm f/1.8G is my second favorite prime I own, next to my 58mm f/1.4G.

Here are some of my shots. More to come. Enjoy!























Compared to the bokeh machine, 200mm f/2.0VRII

I really like the first portrait... really nice bokeh and detail in that shot.

I recently moved from Canon to Nikon and could not afford the 16-35 f4 VR that I initially wanted. I found a 28mm f1.8 for about $450 and have paired this with the D800E. While I miss the flexibility of a zoom, I am loving the distortion free detail I get from my 28mm f1.8. Now, rather than thinking of this lens as a stop gap, I plan to pair it with its super-wide partner (20mm f1.8G) and do my landscape work with that pair.

These are three shots I've made throughout the last two weeks.
cheers,
bruce

Link? I’ve searched everywhere and I couldn’t find ANY. The only ones i saw were a “dilemma” and a question thread.

I guess mine has been archived. I found two "unofficial" threads. This will do now

For the relatively modest price, the 28 f/1.8 is astounding. 5 frame stitch pano:

Digging up oldies to contribute to this thread. I went a year without having the 28.

In addition to landscape and portraits, this lens kicks butt at small details. I used this lens as my go to non-macro close-up lens for quite some time. I too am using this alongside my 58mm 1.4G (as well as my 85mm 1.8G).

I saw those and I honestly thought they were taken with a macro lens! Nice shots!

Here’s mine from tonight.
