The Nikkor 2.8/20, tested by us before, couldn’t show off in this category, keeping the aberration constantly on a very high level of 0.19-0.2%. In the case of the Nikkor 2.8/24 the situation is better but nevertheless it falls short of our expectations. In the aperture range from f/5.6 to f/22 the aberration is very pronounced and only near the maximum relative aperture it decreases to the level of 0.10%, considered to be medium. As in this category the tested lens suffers a resounding defeat, being worse than, say, the Sigma 1.8/24, we can’t praise it at all.
