BUY !!!!!!!!!!! LENS NIKON 28 mm F/1,4 or 2,0 or even a 2,8. For FM
I have already a 28mm but it only opens f/3,5 and this is really not great since I need to picture in dark places.
It is quite URGENT too.

Il y a un 28mm f/2.8 Nikkor AIS boxed MINT £395.00 chez Grays of Westminster à Londres.
Je suis sûr qu’ils peuvent te le faire parvenir fissa et que c’est du matos en très bon état.
Mais tu cherches peut-être moins cher?

Look at the Nikkor 24mm 2.8. It’s faster, I hear.

You might find a Tamron series 2, 28mm They open up to f2.5 as far as I can tell, one in decent nick can be very very sharp. Altogether with the adaptall mount for a nikon you looking at no more than €100 on ebay. Not af though only mf. I found one at a car boot for €2 and got the adaptall mount on ebay for €30. There are still plenty of them knocking around.

a fast/wide/cheap/sharp lens for nikon is the sigma 30mm 1.4. make sure to test it in the store to make sure it’s calibrated (sigma is known for it’s inconsistancy).

it’s designed for digital sensors only and it loses sharpness on the edges but its $1000 cheaper than anything in its class.

yes, the Sigma 30/1.4 is a great lens. However, the original poster asked about a lens that would work on a Nikon FM, if I understand correctly. The Sigma doesn’t do that.

Have a look on ebay. Here is the Nikkor 2.8 28mm manual focus for only 159 bucks:


This is a good lens, I use it myself and love it. The 2.0 of course is even better, but I shoot in low light all the time and I hardly ever use lenses any faster than 2.8. You should be able to find these manual lenses for good prices these days.

Here is the 2.0 on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0000BVDZF/103-9904427-0527823?v=glance&n=502394

A bit pricy at 970,00 US. Frankly, though I am sure there will be many who disagree with me, I dont think the extra stop is worth all the money. Optics aside (OK, supposedly the faster lenses have superior optics all round, but I am not sure this always pans out in actual use: when you shoot at the nether end of the aperture range, you are going to experience problems no matter what, but after all you are pushing the envelope so the resulting look is perfectly acceptable), so optics aside, what you are really talking about here is the ability to shoot in low light, and this can be facilitated by adapting the film speed (pushing), the aperture (open as wide as possible) and the shutter speed. And while in certain cases you may find that the 2.0 gives you a slightly faster shutter speed you probably wont find yourself in such situations all that often. But if you can afford it, well, that is the lens you need. There is no faster.

Hello Benedicte,

I am selling a Nikkor 28mm 1.4 AF plus a Hoya S-HMC skylight 1B 72mm for US$ 1.200. Both lens and filter are in excelent conditions, once they were used only for 03 months. Then I shifted to Canon and now I am selling all the stuff… Pretty dumb me.

By the way, congrats for the EVE project! I live in Brazil and I am friend of one of your friends, Marizilda.

The Nikkor 24mm 2.8 would be a better choice than the 28mm. It’s a bit wider, but gives you the ability to crop your image in and therefor, some extra room when the times get tough. And the 24 is faster than the 28. I’m going to be getting a 20mm 2.8 in the next month or so, for my travel and photojournalism work.

Mustafah thats a matter of opinion and ‘cropping’ will give you a totally different image..

Damn if only i could afford the 1.4

Great lens the manual 28mm 2.8. I love this lens. Very solid and so sharp. some consider this as Nikon’s sharpest wide angle lens.
