Sharpness

The sharpness tests for this review were carried out using a real-world subject rather than a test chart. The Nikkor 28mm f1.8 lens was attached to a Nikon D3S body, which in turn was mounted on a sturdy tripod. Exposure Delay Mode was activated. Slight tonal changes are due to slight changes in natural light during the session.

Sharpness is quite good wide open, fine at f/2.8, and nothing short of excellent between f/4 and f/11. At f/16, sharpness is still very high, although lens contrast is slightly lower than at the other settings. An impressive performance.
