Product Description

The G-Type feature is designed for the newest Nikon 35mm and digital SLR models that allow aperture control directly from the camera body. The design facilitates better lens handling and helps photographers keep a more positive grip on the camera. This firmer grip and balance helps photographers get sharper images, even as they adjust exposure and quickly shoot their pictures.

From the reading I've done, Nikon made over a million of these lenses, to be sold with amateur grade 35mm film cameras, at a time when digital was taking off.

With those same film cameras sitting, unsold, next to the "new" digital counterparts, this left the market flooded with these lenses. They're available very inexpensively on the used market.

They are lightweight and optically EXCELLENT. I use one on a professional Nikon DSLR, the D700, as well as on a D70s and D7000.

If you want a sharp, low distortion very inexpensive lens for your DSLR, consider one of these. The upshot to the low cost is that even a student can afford one of these and at f/3.3 at the wide end, they're actually reasonably bright. (at 80mm, you're stuck with f/5.6, typical of a consumer-grade lens)

Nikon 28-80 lens is absolutely excellent for all around shots. Quick and close focus for a lens of this price. Use often and one of my favorite for grab shots. Pics are excellent. Great for close up or those product shots for eBay etc.

I bought this lense because of the price. It is refurbished by Nikon and it is a good lense. It will not autofocus with the Nikon D40, but still takes good pictures.
