    Ken Rockwell also spoke well about this lens, but, he says, he didn’t take it for himself, but took 24 mm 1: 2,8.

      As far as I know, Ken does not have a review of this lens. He wanted to add this lens to the 6 worst Nikon lenses of all time.

    Dear Arkady, thank you very much for your work. For about six months I have been reading your reviews and articles with great interest, and I am very glad that there are such dedicated enthusiasts. I wish you to continue to please your colleagues (and not only) with your work. Thanks again.

    Arkady, your reviews are interesting, but I do not have enough purely technical information - resolution center / edge. Because when choosing a lens for a portrait, this indicator is not as important as for a landscape, subject and macro. Wide-angle non-autofocus optics are mainly used for landscape and architecture.

    Is this lens compatible with cameras like D90, D300?

      Especially with 300, 90 will not have metering.

    Hello, I want to ask
    What happens if you use it on a cropped D3200?
    at 42mm how much will the picture change?
    and is it worth it to buy?
    I thought to buy it because it is inexpensive and this is my first lens after cetaceans)

      The case is not from Astana?) But it lies on such an alder. will have to focus and exposure manually. It is better to order a 35 mm lens from China

        From there. Ordered here http://ali.pub/2i8bnu . You can topic about 50 mm Yungnou https://radojuva.com/2016/11/yongnuo-yn50mm-f-1-8-n/ the link from the topic - Arkady will be counted.
        The picture on the open one is slightly worse than that of the whale; it compares with the cover and becomes better. But the power is in the luminosity) In addition, Nikon's E series is budgetary, even Nikkor is not written. The aperture plus is autofocus and automatic exposure. I can't say about reliability yet - it works) Blend seems to fit Nikon's HB-47.

        Given the crop, the width factor and cream bokeh will not be? I do not fully understand this topic, is it even worth taking ff to crop?

        The width will not be that, on the crop the diagonal of the frame (with the same distance to the object) will be 1,5 times less, the bokeh of this lens will not go anywhere, but there is a nuance: with the same framing of the object on the crop and FF - on the crop you will have to move to 1,5 , 1,5 times back (on the contrary, approach the FF), and depth of field and, accordingly, bokeh depend on the distance to the object, the closer, the less depth of field and blurr bokeh. Theoretically (I did not check it myself), if you make a crop and FF on the frame from the same distance, and then crop the FF frame by 35 times, you will get two identical photos. Should I take FF lenses for crop? - it is possible, they are usually more expensive and heavier, but there is no DX fifty dollars (and the Canon XNUMX does not have DX).

        What difference does it make if the price is beautiful? Just take into account that the angle on the crop will be different. The only difference is that on FF this lens is wide-angle, but on crop it will be normal. And on the crop the edges will be "cut off", on which inexpensive FF lenses are hackneyed.
        28-35 mm on crop, IMHO, you need to take with autofocus and autoexposure. And manual ones can be "portrait" 50-135, where there is time for focusing and selection of exposure.
        And the cream bokeh can be done on the “whale”, of course it will be easier with this.

        “Just consider that the angle on the crop will be different.” If Adil did not (does not have) FF, then what should he take into account? Please note that 28mm on this lens is the same as 28mm on 18-55DX and on any other.

        “If Adil did not have (does not have) FF, then what should he take into account? Keep in mind that 28mm on this lens is the same as 28mm on 18-55DX and on any other. ”
        That's only in the reviews he could read that this is a wide-angle lens, which is what it is on the FF. Therefore, he wrote. And so yes, from a change in the size of the matrix, the FR does not change.

        that is, instead of this 28mm, can I take an 18-55mm DX and the output will be the same picture? and with Chinese yongnuo 35mm, the output will be 52.2mm. buying a ff lens makes no sense if you do not take into account the aperture, right?

        In terms of quality, most likely yes. The whale is quite good. The Chinese will also have 35 mm. These are both budget FF lenses. But because of the higher aperture, there will be less depth of field, more background blur, less shutter speed - for this, they take high-aperture lenses, especially because of the latter. Even with an aperture of 2.8, the shutter speed will be about 6 times faster than an 18-55 at the same focal length.
        And about the advantages of buying a budget FF, I already wrote above - “defective” edges are cut off on the crop and there are more chances of no vignette.

    "For anyone looking for an AF lens like this, the Nikon AF Nikkor 28mm 1: 2.8D is better than this Series E."
    The 28mm f / 2.8D is based on the same optical design as the Series E 28mm 1: 2.8. That is, this is the same lens, only with autofocus. If we talk about manual models with FR 28mm and aperture f / 2.8, then it is better to choose 28mm f / 2.8 AI-S.
