Product features
  • Ideal for landscape and architecture
  • Compatible with Nikon FX mount
  • Aperture range: f/1.8 - f/16
  • Silent focus

FX-format wide-angle lens with 28mm focal length and fast f/1.8 aperture.

A great choice when you want to capture a wide perspective, this lens is ideal for shooting in tight indoor spaces, photographing stunning vistas, or for capturing cityscapes and street scenes.

An excellent match for high-resolution D-SLRs, the optical design delivers beautifully rendered images and movies. The fast f/1.8 aperture enables sharper shots in low light, and perfectly balances sharpness and bokeh.

Key Features
  • FX-format wide-angle lens with 28 mm focal length (42 mm when used with a Nikon DX-format SLR).
  • Fast f/1.8 aperture: enables beautifully smooth bokeh, sharper shots in low light and a bright viewfinder image.
  • High-performance optical design: delivers sharp, beautifully rendered images to support the performance of high-resolution D-SLRs.
  • Two aspherical lens elements minimize aberrations and correct the distortion that can occur with a wide angle of view.
  • Nano Crystal Coat effectively reduces ghost and flare.
  • Silent Wave Motor (SWM) allows quiet and accurate AF operation.
  • Two focus modes are available: M/A (autofocus with manual override) and M (manual focus).
  • Lightweight and compact body.
  • Weather-sealed metal lens mount.
  • Bayonet lens hood and lens pouch included.

Blimey, that's a great price!
It's a good price and good spot but it's never a good idea to use Amazon as a source for reviews...they are the worst at faking/manipulating their reviews

True, but in this case, this is a generally highly praised lens...

Lots of independent reviews, e.g. dxomark.com/nik…er/
I really don't need this, must....resist.

Worst case, you could probably use it for 6 months then sell it near Xmas for more than 400!

You'll be lucky to get £400, think more £300
Tempting.

I've always fancied the 35mm 1.8 prime lense, I'm on DX format.

Not sure whether it's worth the extra for this considering I'm on DX (D5100).

Wow, you're right. Slightly surprised that it drops so much... Good lenses tend to hold value pretty well.

Still, you can almost break even 😜

The 35mm f/1.8 is a great little lens, very small and light, good length for portraits on a DX body... I've never used this 28mm, but my 35 is one of my most used lenses. For the price, it's hard to beat.

Haven't checked price differences but I assume this will hold better resale value as it can be used on z bodies too.

As DSLRs are on the way out, prices will only drop from now on...and atm, the virus situation doesn't help either...
Oh well too late.

What do you mean DSLR's are on the way out?

Yeah, I really should.

Will keep my eyes peeled for a good deal.

I think in couple of years time, 95% of new cameras will be mirrorless. Canon already announced that there will be no new EF mount lenses from now on.
All amateur cameras are on the way out as smartphones replaced the simple point and shoot ones and now are affecting entry level dslr/Mirrorless cameras. Nikon allows their F mount lenses to be easily adapted to their mirrorless system, so you can still use them there even if dslr are going out

As mirrorless get better and better less people will want DSLRs; they will be mostly used by action photographers. Few pro spec mirrorless bodies released so far but expect nikon to release one soon.

DSLR work better for action shots, I cover many Mma events and was about to purchase a mirror less one but having read many reviews the DSLR came out on top for action shots so I opted for a Nikon D850

Not everyone is in to action photography; I can see for Mma the fastest auto focus would be best. Mirrorless wil keep getting better and is where the camera companies are likley to devote more R&D spend.

I've never bought anything from CEX, those are 2nd hand yeah?

I like to have the box in case I ever decide to sell things on 😝
I just bought a sony a5100 "B" from cex - came with original box.
I got my nikon 35/1.8 3 or more years ago - EDIT - I DID get original box. Seems 50/50 box or not
2 yr g'tee of sorts and often cheaper than ebay - today 2 sold ~£110 and £!39

Forgot - don't think you will sell the 35mm in a rush - it's good for indoors , compact, quick focus
- just generally well liked . . and cheap !
Read from the Introduction - about 1/2 way down

edit - did get nikon box
