Markus Stamm has just posted a detailed review of the new released Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 20mm f/1.8G ED lens at the PhotoZone.de. He highly recommended this ultra wide angle lens “Four Stars” for Nikon full-frame DSLRs, even better than the Sigma 20mm F1.4 Art lens (more expensive and quite a brick).

Verdict from PhotoZone:” There were no doubt high expectations, and the Nikon AF-S 20/1.8 G mostly delivers. Image center sharpness is excellent straight from the largest aperture, the borders and corners are a bit weaker at large apertures, but stopped down considerably (something you’d want to do anyway for landscapes), there is very good sharpness across the whole frame…Distortion is moderate, as is the level of CAs, but the high amount of vignetting wide open is a little surprising...”
Here are several sample images taken with the Nikon D3X. Click to see the zoom. Just enjoy!
