It's true, and sad at the same time. Nikkor 20/1.8G is claimed to be best for sunstars but is mediocre compared to some other non Nikon lenses. S lenses are all bad and worse.

Compared to which non nikon 20mm lenses ?

Have you done those comparisons yourself or read any reviews?


Try Phillip Reeve's blog post on best lenses for sunstars.

We could argue that sunstars just as bokeh are a matter of personal taste but lets not go there.

The question was related to NON NIKON 20mm lenses as you mentioned in your reply but you skipped that part and did'nt mention the names of non nikon 20mm lenses which have better image quality than nikon 20mm 1.8g, based on your claim that nikon 20mm 1.8g is a mediocre lens.

What are you doing in this topic? I was not speaking about image quality, I was speaking about sunstars. As for image quality, S lens is obvious choice for Z mount.

Thanks for the clarification. So which 20mm non nikon lens is best for sunstars compared to 20mm 1.8g and why you consider it to be better?

I never said "compared to some other 20mm non nikon lenses". And I didn't get that you were refering to 20mm lenses in your previous posts. I was speaking about all lenses in general and how Nikon is by all means not that good in sunstars department, S lenses in particular.
