Re: Any recommendations for 20mm or 21mm manual prime?

Hi Den Sh,

I have had two 20mm Nikkors both AF-D.  I must say they were both unacceptable.  I then understood why Nikon's 14-24mm gained so much popularity.  (I also had a 14-24mm)

The fact is most ultrawides by most manufacturers until the last few years have been soft in the corners, poor contrast etc.  I say, wait for the 23mm if possible.
