Nikon Silent Wave Motor
A significant innovation in AF lens technology, Nikon's Silent Wave Motor uses ultrasonic (inaudible) vibrations—rather than a gear system—to focus the lens, providing incredibly smooth, silent and precise autofocus operation.
M/A Focus Mode Switch
When fine manual focusing is needed, simply rotate the lens focus ring—M/A mode allows you to seamlessly override the AF system with virtually no time lag.
Super Integrated Coating
Nikon's Super Integrated Coating enhances light transmission efficiency and offers superior color consistency and reduced lens flare.
Nano Crystal Coat
An anti-reflective coating developed by Nikon that virtually eliminates internal lens element reflections across a wide range of wavelengths.
A system in which only the rear lens group moves during focusing, thus eliminating changes in the physical length of the lens during focusing and enabling faster focusing. Such lenses are designated with RF on the lens barrel.

Since then Nikon has released the 20mm f/1.8G and the 24mm f/1.8G. It's possible that if I had to choose with all three available at the time, I would have probably picked the 20mm f/1.8G instead, but I'm glad those choices were not open to me at the time, because I feel the 28mm is a bit more versatile. It's not too wide and it's not too narrow. The 20mm and 24mm would have been a bit too wide for most other photography. They probably would have stayed in the bag more often than the 28mm does. In fact the 28mm is attached most of the time when going out for casual shooting even though I also have a 50mm f/1.4G and 85mm f/1.8G, both of which can be a little too narrow sometimes.
Simply put, the 28mm is ready for just about any situation. Love it.
I use this lens on my d7000 which comes out sharp and clear my personal favorite body since I was previously a d90 user. However, I must say the results on a d700 is spectacular. The sharpness is so clear and comes out even more nice when you shoot RAW. I highly recommend these lens if you're not really up for spending the extra $$$ for the 24 or 35.
I am amazed at the sharpness and accuracy of this lens, I had backfocus issues with my 35mm and sold it. Then bought the 16-35 VR lens but F4 was just too slow, and my copy is a little soft when I compared it to my 70-200. I felt the 28mm was a good option for the range i wanted to shoot, and wow am I impressed! This lens is very sharp even at 1.8 and shooting around 2.8 my shots are very close if at times better then what I was getting with my 70-200. I love this lens it's now my favorite and gets me stunning contrasty shots that I couldn't achieve with my 16-35mm.
I used to think that maybe my technique was a little off and thats why I was having issues getting tack sharp photos when within 5 feet of my subject matter but this lens has truly improve the quality of photos i'm getting.
