Nikon, Nikkor 20mm f/2.8D AF Lens Review

This lens is great for wide angle photography, it is extremely compact. If a lens is required wider than this, then go for the 14-24mm f/2.8 zoom.

The lens features the close range correction (CRC) system to provide high performance at both near and far focusing distances, this lens is the best of the older 24mm f/2.8 D and 35mm f/2.0 D lenses.

With this lens there is some curvature of field, at close ranges, and there is also some chromatic aberation. Image sharpness is reasonable but not excellent. Contrast is quite good.
