Nikon 20mm f/1.8G: Might be Nikon’s Best Ever Wide Angle

Get Nikon 20mm f/1.8G ED at B&H Photo.

The weather in the Eastern Sierra has been unbelievably pleasant for late October. Dream days. And hardly anyone here. But a storm might be headed in.

If any reader lives in the Bishop area and has a spare Sony A7R battery, I could surely use one for a few days. I somehow forgot my spare and its charger... it’s a tedious time charging the A7R via USB3.

I get rather bored with most Nikon lenses (mediocrity is uninspiring if not annoying), but the 20/1.8G looks to be an exception and quite possibly is the best Nikon wide angle yet. Relatively small and light and with standard filter threads, all at a bargain price that includes the lens shade.

Accordingly, the Nikon 20mm f/1.8G ED will be getting a goodly amount more coverage when I return. I am shooting it out in the field and liking it. See the existing review coverage of the Nikon AF-S 20mm f/1.8G.
