Nikons short focal length lenses are excellent.

Crutchfield customer from Fleming Island, FL on 6/28/2020

This is a top lens for astrophotography. This lens is one of Nikons finest - they really got this one right. Preferred by many over some premium 20 mm models. I don't use it for family fun photos - prefer 60 mm for around house, patio parties etc.. Composite construction is a bit of a let down, but it's not $1500 either so I can live with the trade off. Fast to focus, excellent color rendition, works really well on D750. Definitely a keeper.

Pros: Light, excellent color rendition, fast to focus. Top not performer for astrophotography when mounted to Fx body. Good value.

Cons: Composite construction, is not a Japanese manufactured lens.

Great wide-angle lens

Crutchfield customer from Danville, PA on 1/31/2020

This lens is incredibly sharp. There is minimal distortion, except with close subjects. Background blurring is pleasing despite being a wide-angle lens. The focal length itself is pretty useful for landscape and architecture.

Sharp from edge to edge

I'm a prime lens person. I have only four lens and only one of them is a telephoto zoom. The Nikkor 20 mm f/1.8 completes my bag and it is SHARP. I have used it in side in low light conditions and for landscape shots with exceptional results. My next feature shoot is going to be astrophotography with this unit.

Pros: Beautiful low light results and outstanding Crutchfield support

Cons: Cost can be an inhibitor for some buyers, but well worth the dollars.

Nikon AF-S Nikkor 20mm f/1.8G ED

Artur from Woodhaven, NY on 1/1/2019

Its lightweight ...compact in size...pretty quick to focus and its sharp. I really like how the glass renders the images, color and contrast are very nice. Little to no distortion as well. I wanted to go with the ultra-wide zooms but...if you want to use a ND filter set...you need to invest in another system. With this lens, its pretty wide and NiSi makes an affordable filter kit which threads on the front of the camera for 100mm width filters.

Pros:

Cons:

Excellent piece of glass

I shoot DX (7200) and was looking for a good quality, Wide Angle lens to serve as a walk-around and travel lens. I was also looking for great low light performance. And, weight was an important consideration, as I have a 17-55 2.8 which is an outstanding lens, but just too heavy for travel. My first and thus far only outing with the 20mm was to Hoover Dam, and it delivered on all counts. Sharpness was outstanding, and with a 30mm equivalent FOV, it was great for outside shots of the dam and bypass bridge. Interior shots were also easily captured. I am very happy with my purchase.

Pros: Outstanding sharpness. Light weight.

Cons: None that I have uncovered thus far.

The first ultra wide angle lens I have ever used. It has some learning curves to use it properly. I am sure it will be a great addition to my photography. From all the reviews i have read, this lens has awesome reviews.

Pros: A highly rated wide angle lens. Have not yet put it to the test. I have much confidence in Nikon F X lenses.

Cons: None yet

Small Wonder

As a long time user of the amazing 14-24, I was looking for a small go-anywhere compliment that accepts 77mm filters. This lens fits that bill perfectly but also ads in some extras. For most intents and purposes, this lens is every bit as good as the 14-24 @20. There may be individual characteristics that lean slightly one way or the other, but you can figure these two are about equal without a generally unnecessary amount of scrutiny. Besides matching the quality, adding filter threads and improving the portability, the 20/1.8 has some welcome enhancements. For one, you can get shallow DoF at 1.8 while the center of the image stays very very sharp. This is a fun feature for artistic purposes. Most likely due to its 7 blade diaphragm, you get outstanding sunstars/star bursts/light starts/whatever from this lens. The flare control is also superb. If you are an wide-to-ultrawide shooter, you will love this lens, even if you already have a 24mm prime or an amazing zoom covering the range. This is likely going down as a classic landscape lens.

Pros: Sharp, beautiful rendering. Great Flare control, accepts standard sized filters, very compact, very light, quite affordable. Did I mention its sharp? :)

Cons: 20mm is quite wide and this can affect its versatility. Its unlikely most people want to shoot all day with a 20mm lens. Maybe there could be a touch less vignette and distortion, but these are all very well controlled at apertures you'd likely use when they matter.
