Nikon's AF-S Nikkor 28mm f/1.8G is a fast wide-angle optic that is incredibly sharp—and affordably priced.

The Nikon 28mm f/1.8 G is a fast, sharp, light, fast-focusing wide-angle lens. It lets in more light than any f/2.8 zoom for shorter shutter speeds or lower ISOs.

The Nikon 28/1.8G is a good lens but it's not cheap. Indeed the price is perhaps the biggest disappointment for potential buyers of this lens. The performance is pretty good but you need to stop down to f4.0 or even f5.6 for the sharpest results across the frame.
