  • The Nikon 28mm lens is one of the older Nikkor lenses that was manufactured back in the mid 90s. It is still available for sale and you can get this lens from , , .

    The first Nikon 28mm lens was designed for the S mount rangefinders. The W-Nikkor.C 2.8cm f/3.5 was released in 1952. In 1959, with the introduction of the Nikon F and the F mount, Nikon introduces a line of retro-focal 28mm lenses. In the manual focus era that followed, this line was expanded in include lenses of three speeds, plus two shift capable, Perspective Correction versions. All these lenses had a reputation for high performance, while the varying maximum aperture allowed them to be tailored to all price/weight points. Impressively, other than the PC versions, all the 28mm MF lenses shared a standard 52mm filter size.

    Hiromasa Sebata Product Manager, Professional Products at Nikon UK says “The new 28mm adds to Nikon’s growing line up of popular wide-angle lenses, bridging the gap between the 24mm and 35mm Nikkor lenses perfectly. The 28 mm focal length benefits from improved optical construction to control unwanted distortion. This highly anticipated lens is a practical choice for every kit bag.”


    Nikon 28mm lens design
    The large f/1.8 aperture delivers sharper shots in low light and achieves a perfect balance of sharpness and bokeh, singling out subjects beautifully. The fast aperture also provides a bright viewfinder image. Equipped with a brand new optical design, the Nikon AF-S Nikkor 28mm f/1.8G supports the increasing resolution of modern D-SLRs with sharp, beautifully rendered stills and movies. Two aspherical lens elements effectively minimize aberrations and correct the distortion that can occur with a wide angle of view. Nikon’s exclusive Nano Crystal Coat reduces ghost and flare, and Silent Wave Motor (SWM) ensures discreet but accurate autofocus.


    Compact and durable Nikon 28mm lens
    With a weather sealed mount and weighing just 330g, the AF-S Nikkor 28mm f/1.8G is a solid yet lightweight and compact option that will fit easily into any kit bag. Compatible with Nikon FX-format D-SLRs, it offers a 42 mm (equivalent) focal length when used with Nikon DX-format D-SLRs and is fully compatible with entry-level models that do not have a built-in autofocus motor.
