Nikon AI-S 28mm f/2.8 Manual Focus Lens
Bright Manual Focus Wide Angle Lens
The manual focus Nikkor 28mm f/2.8 prime from Nikon offers a comfortably wide-angled field of view that can capture vast landscapes and nature. Furthermore, the use of a Close Range Correction system as part of the optical design provides for consistent image quality and sharpness from as up-close as 21cm (minimum focusing distance) to infinity. A relatively bright maximum aperture of f/2.8 contributes to its compact size and capacity for working in dimmer conditions. The application of shallow depth of field and selective focus techniques benefits from an appealing out of focus quality promoted by a seven-blade diaphragm. While this lightweight 28mm lens is designed for FX-format F-mount cameras, there is an added versatility of using it with DX models where it provides an equivalent focal length of 42mm. Finally, the attractive manual focus design features engraved focus distance and depth of field scales.
