Our take on the Nikon AF-S Nikkor 28mm f/1.8G Lens by Crutchfield's Woody Sherman
Lenses like the Nikon AF-S Nikkor 28mm f/1.8G Lens hold a special place in the hearts of professional photographers everywhere. That's because they produce results like no other lens. When a lens only has one focal length, the care spent on the optics translates into pure, crystal-clear image quality. This lens, placed on a full-frame camera, will get your wide group shots under control, while staying sharp from edge to edge. Placed on a DX-format camera, it's closer to a "normal" field of view lens, seeing the world much as your eye sees it (only with a bit wider of an angle to play with).
The light-hungry, wide f/1.8 aperture is up to most of your low-light challenges as well. Superb Nikkor optics will ensure that your shots won't be marred by ghosting or flaring.

Features and Specs

Overview: The Nikon AF-S Nikkor 28mm f/1.8G lens is a fixed focal length lens with a natural wide angle view, and a fast f/1.8 aperture. It is ideal for general close-ups, delicate flowers, detailed collectibles, copy photography, portraits, and landscapes.
Rear Focusing System: This lens utilizes the Rear Focusing System, a system in which only the rear lens group moves during focusing, thus eliminating changes in the physical length of the lens. This allows for faster focusing.
Super Integrated Coating: Nikon's Super Integrated Coating enhances light transmission efficiency and offers superior color consistency and reduced lens flare.
Nano Crystal Coating: The lens has a Nano Crystal Coating, a coating that eliminates lens element reflections and reduces ghosting and flare for even greater image clarity.
Silent Wave Motor (SWM): The exclusive Nikon Silent Wave Motor (SWM) enables fast, accurate, and quiet auto focus.
Focus Mode Switch: The Focus Mode switch on the barrel of the lens lets you easily switch between manual focus and auto focus. If you want to enable auto focusing, the camera must be set to Auto Focus, and the switch on the lens needs to be set to "M/A". With most Nikon D-SLRs, the lens gives you a manual override option, allowing you to rotate the separate focus ring while pressing the shutter release halfway.
Diaphragm: The lens is equipped with a rounded 7-blade diaphragm.
Lens Hood: The lens comes with the HB-64 bayonet-type lens hood. The hood adds approximately 1-1/2" to the overall length of the lens. You can invert the hood and snap it onto the lens for storage, if desired.
