    Cons: Yet not found any

    Pros: Mechanical quality. All metal. Close-up distance. Excellent image quality. Sharpness. Nice color rendering. Aparture ring. Compatibility. Size and weight. Price

    Summary: It\'s manual focus only. On a D800E equipped with a tailor-made K-Screen manual focus is easier and more accurate than autofocus with older AF and AF-D nikkors. The point-on focus and the sharpness of the lens offers maximal resolution with a 36MPx-camera. I particularly appreciate the beautiful color rendering which I find vivid, natural and much nicer than that of most of the younger lenses. The lens is comparable with any Nikon DSLR that has an AI-coupling and with any 35mm SLR from 1960 til today. It is an excellent lens for a more than reasonable price.

    Cons: -

    Pros: Excellent

    Summary: I've got all the heavy and big new lenses. Yes they are nice but I still like to turn the focusring myself, too. I like it for why it is so light, so direct, so 'feels-like-shooting-oldystyle'. Get one if you like an excellent lens for small money. you will not regret.

    Cons: no AF

    Pros: lightness, excellent damping on focus ring, close focus, colors and contrast, and of course, sharpness good from 2.8

    Summary: I use this on my Canon 60 D as a video lens with a Fotodiox Nikon to EOS adapter. This allows me to handhold while shooting video without IS. On Nikon D300 it was the best WA I had even though the FOV was 42mm

    Cons: None, other than manual focus. However, with a D3 or D700, there is an accuracy to the manual focus that lets this lens shine.

    Pros: Sharpness, contrast, build quality all top-notch.

    Summary: This lens has a fantastic reputation, and I had always wanted a copy, despite having a D3 and many autofocus lenses. I got a mint+ used copy for about $300 from a Japanese collector, and the lens has not disappointed! Fantastica sharpness and contrast at all apertures and all points of the image. Also wonderful build quality. If you find a mint copy, just get it, you will be happy you did (I am).

    Price: 150 euros
    User profile: Semipro

    Cons: - Somewhat prone to flare without lens hood - Hard to focus on targets from 1,5m - infinity - Usually very pricey

    Pros: + Min. focus distance 0,20m + Extremely sharp at all aperture values + Good contrast + No distortion from 0,30m - infinity + Minimal vignetting on FX, almost none with DX + Build quality + Small size + Takes 52mm filters

    Summary: Bought this lens while visiting France in spring 2009 in near mint condition with Nikkor AI 105/2.5 and Nikon FE for 150 euros. I've seen people paying around 300 euros for this good old AI-S 28/2.8 and I can't blame them since this lens doesn't have any rival today. Newer AF version doesn't focus as close, isn't even nearly as sharp and is made of plastic. For almost the same price I'd rather skip the auto focus and go manual. Why oh why didn't Nikon keep the older optical design with the AF version?
