NEW: How to Use Ultrawide Lenses 11 August 2008


This is a pretty darn good manual focus lens.


72mm filter, stops to f/22.

Push-on stamped metal lens cap.

All metal construction.

S.S.C. just means it's multicoated.


It is very sharp.

Barrel distortion is typical; maybe less than the Nikkor 20mm f/2.8 (all versions) or the Nikkor 17-35/2.8 at 20mm.

Ghosting is OK, I don't recall looking for it or seeing anything that bad.


Buy one. I would. I have no idea why people pay almost as much as a new AF lens ($400) for these old manual lenses completely incompatible with any modern camera, but they do.
