Pros: Excellent optical and mechanical quality, good flare containment, weight and small size, diameter filters 52

Cons: Indefinitely it does not offer maximum yield, sensitive curvature of the field with presence of purple fringing at the edges

Opinion: Having never owned a 20mm, comforted by the various positive reviews, a few weeks ago I ended up finding an AI in very good condition thus completing a set of AI and AF D targets. I pair it with an adapter ring to a Sony Alpha 7 / 7II. I am very satisfied with its use in landscapes based on what Has been tried so far. I agree in particular with the considerations of the first two reviews. I usually use it from F/8 to F/11; it returns an excellent degree of sharpness, resisting well the internal reflections and in general provides warm shades that sometimes remind me a bit of the old Kodachrome. I also appreciate the small size and the diameter of the 52mm filters

Pros: 20mm 3.5 hc ud modif to extraordinary optics rendered superb colors and sharpness unique details

Cons: No defect

Opinion: The 20mm 3.5 nikkor hc ud is an extraordinary objective as are some other nikon designed targets in the 60s and 70s to 80's still today unsurpassed by other nikon sophisticated optics today, especially designed to have a better contrast and therefore fit Only for digital cameras, this nikkor is a real gem to be kept jealously guarded like other nikkor optics, lens treatment is like that of 85 1.8 hc, made very beautiful and warm, 20 3.5's It's a little less hot because of the new lens treatment but always a beautiful goal I was looking for the latter I had owned by young 20mm f 4 and I proposed the 20 3.5 hc ud that i changed to immediately and it was instantly shot Lightning, thanks again to nikon who has entered in the manual configuration of optical optics the corrections for the old nikkor optics, splendid objective like the super angulon leica r 21 4 which i possess

Pros: mechanical and optical quality, size

Cons: none

Opinion: large lens from nikon history. minimum distortion can also be used for architecture. pocket-sized for a superb quality wide angle. good image quality already at room temperature and excellent from f / 5.6; I agree with Caneca regarding the use on super pixelated today where 20 3.5 suffers a little but remains at the highest levels. It recommended to keep in the bag if you do not have other wide-angle zoom. used on d700 and d750 also for long night exposures with excellent results.

Pros: Compact, strong. Yield vivid, realistic and pasty. Resolving enough, lacking in character.

Cons: I would say no one in particular.

Opinion: excellent lens: easy to focus when focus, and very quick. E 'sufficiently sharp for all uses, keeping warm and deep tones. The images do not 'fry', then, but rather cutlery, full-bodied and very vivid, with the 20mm wide-angle momentum of that on short distance do not caricatures forms. It is not indicated for pixel-peepers, but for me it is the ideal lens of this focal length, as it is very balanced. In terms of sharpness ranks one step away from Voigtlander Color Skopar 20 f3.5 (which costs twice, again) and two from the Nikkor 16-35 f4 (which costs four times as much, use) and has a low distortion, and a excellent resistance to flare. E 'best of f2.8 version (both ais that AFD, which share the optical scheme) and could adapt to dell'f4.rnForse is not particularly dense sensors (eg: D800 / D810). On 12Mp it is spot on. I think 18-20Mp are the expressive limits of this lens, then begins to sgranare.rnA infinite does not give the best ofthough, it must be said. A TA is very good, and f5.6 becomes sharper and chanted, up to f11, which then begins to affect diffraction, but without much quality falls. rnPermette of compelling close-up, thanks to the CRC system. rnBell'oggetto: useful, powerful, practical. Smart Purchase.
