A short time ago we checked how the classic 20 mm lens, designed by Canon for analogue devices, fares in the era of digital reflex cameras. The result was not very impressive because the image quality of that expensive prime 2.8/20 lens practically didn’t exceed the results you can get using 17/18-50 f/2.8 Sigma and Tamron zooms.

A similar situation can be observed for Nikon. This company has also such a lens, namely the Nikkor AF 20 mm f/2.8D, in its line-up; it was designed at the beginning of the 90s of the 20th century and launched on the market in 1994. From the very beginning it enjoyed an excellent opinion among the photographers working with analogue cameras. Does it fare equally well on digital devices?
