Nikon 18mm F3.5 AIs lens, corners sharp, less vignetting at F5.6 to F11.
04FEB2015. Using a Nikon D700 full-frame DSLR, I found this Nikon 18mm F3.5 AIs lens to perform about as well as suggested by "professional reviewers". + I found that distortion is well controlled, not the complex (mustache) distortion found on some ultra wide-angle lenses, thus, if need be, can be easily corrected in post processing. + Like many lenses, when used wide open, this lens is soft in the corners and has significant vignetting (both of which can be useful for emphasis of certain subjects). As with most lenses, stopping down a couple of F-Stop, in this case to F5.6 and smaller, results in sharper corners and less vignetting, the sweet spot seems to be F8-11 which is fine for most outdoor shooting. Though I cannot measure it or see it, most reviewers report that diffraction begins to set in at apertures smaller than F11 (depending on sensor resolution, I believe). + If you have a high-end Nikon camera which can use the older AI and AIs lenses (all manual focus) there are some real bargains at most focal lengths out there. + When someone says that Auto-focus is a necessity (not really needed for an ultra-wide lens like this one as it is generally not an action lens, AND the depth of field is so great that manual focusing should not be an issue), I can tell you that in the 70s-80s I used to shoot sports for a small newspaper (HS football and basketball) and manual focus was all we had. When using 300mm lenses with shallow depth of field and limited ASA (film speed), compared to today's Hi ISO capabilities, by anticipating where the ball (action) was likely headed, pre-focusing there, and waiting for the action to get there, you achieved many "keepers".
So far my opinion is this is a very good lens, its sharp, its rectilinear and a great addition to my architectural lens collection. It is not a lens with a great amount of contrast, little to no distortion makes up for it. I am glad I own one. Thanks Nikon

I've got what I had expected, so I'm satisfied.
It's a quite distort-less and high contrast lens. Works best on f=8-11, has no lateral chromatic contours and no coma (on 5,6-11 at least). Of course it's best for interiors (for which I had acquired it) and some other architectural purposes. I use it on my D800E.
