The Japanese pancake renders differently than the other Nikkors, with the E series being its weaker, but similar sibling, with the most obvious difference being the coating.

My copy has no discernable internal defects, and produces uniform sharpness and contrast (with DX) at its optimal f-stops.

In fact, it beats the online images produced by even the D700.

Like the D700 that many of the online samples were shot with.

BTW, the D1h happens to employ a 10mpx scanning sensor.



I never had a problem with the images I got when using my 28mm f/3.5 Ai.

That's kind of what I was hinting at trying to figure out.

That's funny, because Ken Rockwell has a page dedicated to the pro zooms where he shows test images.

The Ai-S version clearly beat the Ai in every test.

Well, I have decided that I will look for a 35-70mm f/3.5 Ai-S. Its the lightest of the pro zooms, and has excellent image quality.
