Re: Nikon 28mm f/1.8 G for Landscape?

This lens has significant field curvature which makes it hard to get the edges and corners into sharp focus at infinity. This also affects the mid-field due to an oscillating field of focus. And of course it is a fixed focal length, and not a very wide one at that. Finally, I can not get this lens to focus properly using the edge/corner AF points on my D800 (probably the cameras fault). For all these reasons I hesitate to recommend this lens for landscape use.

I plan to stick with my 24-120 for landscapes. At f/8 I honestly can't tell much difference, and the zoom has the advantage of being able to go wider as well as longer.
