Looking for 28mm native or equiv

I have troubles finding DX native 28mm or at least something from FX that will be close to 28mm. I am not talking about huge or expensive, more like decent pancake with 2.8

Do you know such  AF lens compatible with FTZ adapter ?

Re: Looking for 28mm native or equiv

I'm not sure if your are asking for 28mm equivalent or just 28mm. Anyway, there is the old Nikon 18mm f/2.8D which you can find used which would be equivalent to 27mm on the D500. Apparently, some really good old glass, cause' they're proud of them on EBAY.

The actual 28mm, Nikon AF FX NIKKOR 28mm f/1.8G is a newer lens, which would be 42mm equivalent on the D500.

If you don't really need the speed, and want to go cheap and wide, the Nikon AF-P DX NIKKOR 10-20mm f/4.5-5.6G VR is actually a pretty nice, very light and little lens for daylight.  I have one, and have carried it in my pocket on occasion. It works out as a 15-30mm equivalent.
