Has anybody tried the new 28mm/f1.8 AF-S yet? Two weeks ago, I saw one at my local camera store and then I received a test sample from Nikon USA a few days ago. It is a fairly light lens, and it is human nature that we associate quality with heavier weight. Therefore, fair or not, my initial reaction was that it is not as well built as the 24mm/f1.4 and 35mm/f1.4 lens. In reality, it has a plastic barrel similar to the 50mm/f1.8 AF-S and 85mm/f1.8 AF-S. One thing I don't like about this 28mm is that the manual focus ring is very loose, much looser than the focus ring on the 50mm/f1.8 and 85mm/f1.8 AF-S, and that was the case on both samples I have tried. Since I mainly use AF, it is not much of an issue; however, if you use manual focus a lot, it can be annoying. I only have very limited experience with this lens. Optical quality seems good. Even on the D800E, it is quite sharp. I have yet to verify corner performance in a landscape setting. I have some initial images but need to double check. I have also read on other forums that this lens has the "focus shift" issue; i.e. the in focus point moves as you change the aperture. I see the new 28mm/f1.8 AF-S is already in stock at the usual major mail-order places, unlike the 85mm/f1.8 AF-S that had some initial shortage for 2, 3 months. Personally, I need a 85mm/f1.4 or 1.8 a lot more because those are portrait lenses. I may want a 35mm/f1.4 for indoor, available light photography, but for a 28mm, I am not sure I really need f1.8 as I can probably get away with an f2.8 zoom.
