Nikon 20mm f/2.8D AF Nikkor

1913NAS_180
Review Date: Sep 23, 2008 Recommend? | Price paid: Not Indicated

 
Pros: Sharp if stopped down. Compact.
Cons:
Bad corners at large apertures.

I apologize for my first review of this lens, I don't know what I was on. Cough medicine maybe.
Actually both my copies are fine if stopped down two stops. But if not, the corners are just smeared badly. And this is even on a reduced-frame camera (D200), so it's not acceptable to me. I think an F:2.8 lens should be good at F:2.8.
(I would lower my rating, except the site does not seem to allow to change it, sorry.)

Pros: Sharp, compact.
Cons:
Not much.

First, to Tiesge: The sharpness of the lens is not affected by the ISO setting. It is just the camera introduces noise.

I have two of this lens. One of them is not sharp. I bought it used, but it looks new, so this was disappointing. So I "bit the green apple" as we say in Denmark, and bought another, this one from new. And from early testing, this one is indeed very sharp.
