Photographer's Eye

I normally do not stray very far from the 35-50mm focal range, so using a 20mm lens was a fairly new and refreshing experience. After spending so many years engaging with photography from a normal focal length, I found myself surprised by my viewfinder each time I’d bring the camera to my eye. The Nikkor AF-S 20mm 1.8G ED is very light, incredibly fast and piercingly sharp―even at full aperture. I was also happily surprised to find almost no ghosting or distortion. Even when shooting into the sun, I had to work to get the lens to flare. The autofocus is always fast and accurate, and the lens is very tough. After a week of traveling on the the road with this lens, I was left with the definite impression that it would become a permanent part of my pack.
