When compared to all other ultra to moderately wide angle lenses (18mm to 28mm) based on the overall performance, Nikon's AF Nikkor 20mm f/2.8 does not quite stack up. The lens shows weak border performance at wide apertures on both full frame as well as APS-C type cameras and falls prone to pretty...

There isn't a whole lot to say about a fixed 20 lens. It is sharp, contrasty, and a bit fragile. All of Nikon's "very wide" lenses have "close-range correction" (CRC). This is a "floating element" that moves relative to the other pieces of glass inside the lens as you focus.

What you should know : If any optic in Nikon's extensive lens line can be called a standard ultrawide, it's the long-running 20mm f/2.8D AF Nikkor. Covering an impressive 94- degree angle, it's also pleasantly compact and fast enough for available-light shooting.

I use this lens for interiors photography. Sometimes a 24 isn't wide enough. The 20mm fits the sweet spot without being garishly wide. No autofocus but depth of field at this focal length is abundant. It's built very well. sharp, compact. Just what I needed.

A bit surprised by the abundance of praise for this lens...I suppose people like it for its compactness and use it mostly in the middle of the aperture range. I just bought one and having run a few tests, I can see that it's basically unusable wide open due to severe coma, even in the middle of the...

I always stopped at 24mm when assembling a SLR kit. Anything wider was too specialized for regular use and good glass gets pricey wider than 24mm. Except for this lens. Amazing color, contrast and sharpness. Barrel distortion is expected, corrected with DxO software or Photoshop.

    Some distortion

23 April 2013

Bought this a few weeks ago to take with me to Disney World. Was a great choice over all. I have many lenses at my disposal to use. 16mm fisheye, 20mm 2.8, 50mm 1.4, 28-70mm 2.8, 70-200mm vrii 2.8 and a D3S. With only a few exceptions, I used the 20mm2.8 most of the time.

This is a lightweight landscape lens that gives great depth of field results. Colors pop and sharpness from forground to background is great with this lens. Also excellent for architectural photography. Guard against lens flare and get compatible Nikon lens hood.

I love this lens. Not quite as sharp as a 17-35, and a couple notches down from the 14-24, but still a lens that results in better pictures simply because of its size and weight.

    Very compact, very fast AF.

    Soft with more distant objects wide open.

This is my first super wide fix focal length lens. In the short time that I have had it, it has produced stunning results. The image comes through crisp and clear. The colors are outstanding. I brought this lens with me to photograph Italy, and all I can say is, wow.
