“18/2.8 had not received good comments on the web, but my copy is delivering very good contrast, colors (I find it turns a bit to the cold side) and sharpness.

Kenrockwell reviews the Nikon 18mm f/2.8D AF Nikkor and writes;
“THere is no vignetting on FX with one filter. Forget trying to use two filters at the same time. Any vignetting gets worse at f/16. Any vignetting gets a tiny bit worse at closer focus distances.”
