A remark at first: a Nikon lens is either an autofocus (AF) lens or a manual focus (MF) lens, the latter consisting of three types: non-AI, AI and AIS (AI = aperture indication). I own the MF 28 mm f/2.8 AIS; probably the AF lens is similar. As for the lens: for me one of the best wide angle lenses I have seen, very sharp also at close distances. Distortions are minimal, thanks to Nikon's CRC system. When used in straylight conditions, flare may be possible, so always use a lens hood. Some examples are tight to focus at small distances, because a lot of elements are moving then inside.
