Verdict

The 1 Nikkor 10mm f/2.8 is a very good wide angle lens, that delivers excellent resolution in the image center with very good borders and corners (when stopped down a little).

Distortion and vignetting are as expected for a relatively fast wide angle lens, but both can be easily corrected in post processing. The same is true for CAs, which are a bit on the high side.

The build quality of the lens is excellent and AF action is very fast, but not completely silent. The omission of a hood in the default delivery content is a minor let-down, however the lens handles backlight quite well without any additional protection.

Thus, ompared to the default kit zoom lens, the 1 Nikkor VR 10-30mm, the small pancake lens offers slightly superior performance, but in a much smaller and in addition more robust package. Unlike the zoom, however, the prime does not feature optical stabilization.
