: My review is now finished. Have a look here
This is to inform you that the latest Nikon f1.8 prime was delivered to me: The AF-S 28mm f1.8G which is a full-frame lens (as opposed to the DX 35/1.8G).
So it complements the Nikon AF-S 50/1.8G and 85/1.8G on the wide side.
It seems that Nikon didn't see enough economic value in doing a FX 35/1.8G plus a 24/1.8G to complement their 1.4G brethren. But 28mm just lies nicely in the middle of those focal lengths, so it may just fit many bills. And if the results from the latest 1.8G lenses is any indicator Nikon might just have delivered a very capable but reasonably priced wide-angle prime.
Well, all will be revealed in my up-and-coming review of this lens. Including Siemens-stars, the infamous Unremarkables, etc.
But before this review is completed and approved by Gordon you'll find some tid-bits and insights from my ongoing testing here.
Feel free to ask, comment and/or simply enjoy.
Btw.: it seems that I've got one of the first copies of this lens out there as no dealer in Germany/Austria lists this lens as available. Lucky me! And lucky you: to read all about this lens here at Camera Labs
