Announced in May 2017, the AF-S Nikkor 28mm f/1.4E ED is Nikon’s latest FX full-frame wide-angle lens to offer a fast maximum aperture of f/1.4, slotting in between the existing 24mm and 35mm f/1.4 lenses. The AF-S Nikkor 28mm f/1.4E ED lens features a Nano Crystal coating to reduce reflections, a nine-bladed blade rounded diaphragm, dust- and drip-resistant build quality and a Silent Wave Motor (SWM) for quiet focusing. Boasting 14 elements in 11 groups with three aspherical elements that virtually eliminate coma, aberration and distortion and two ED glass elements that minimize chromatic aberration, the Nikon AF-S Nikkor 28mm f/1.4E ED ED is available for £2,079.99 / €2,479.00 / $1,999.95 in the UK / Europe / USA.
Ease of Use
For such a short prime, the Nikon AF-S Nikkor 28mm f/1.4E ED is a rather big and heavy lens, weighing in at 645g and measuring 10cm in length. While you can use it on a DX body for a 42mm equivalent angle of view, it won’t balance very well – as demonstrated by the images below, it can even make the professional-grade, full-frame D750 feel rather front heavy.
