Lens brightness and image stabilizer
The lens brightness and aperture value is f/1,8.
This aperture value indicates that the lens is extremely bright.  This will make it so much easier shooting in darker environments where you do not want or can use flash lighting, for example in churches or at different sports venues.
The lens lacks image stabilization, which otherwise os good for avoiding the blur that can occur when using slow shutter speeds. Since the lens is bright, with good aperture value, the lack of image stabilization might not be that big of a deal, although a image stabilizer is always an advantage to have.

Text from Nikon:"FX-format prime lens offers fast f/1.8 aperture and delivers outstanding clarity and high contrast, low-light performance and depth-of-field control for beautiful stills and HD videos.

Bring a dramatic wide-angle perspective to your still and HD video shooting. The AF-S NIKKOR 28mm f/1.8G´s fast maximum aperture lets you create in nearly any light—dusk to dawn, indoors or out—and offers outstanding depth-of-field control. Nikon´s exclusive Nano Crystal Coat nearly eliminates the ghosting and flare seen with some wide-angle lenses for improved clarity and contrast. Impressive on both FX- and DX-format cameras, the AF-S NIKKOR 28mm f/1.8G excels with landscapes, architecture, group shots, travel and more.

Complete control, even in low light
Fast f/1.8 aperture with a 7-blade rounded diaphragm
An f/1.8 maximum aperture frees you to create in low-light settings, like the cool blues of dawn or the warm oranges of an indoor event. Not only will your photos and HD videos be brighter, your view through the camera will be brighter for fine-tuning and manual control. An f/1.8 aperture also gives you remarkable depth-of-field control, so you can softly blur your backgrounds and draw attention to your subjects. The AF-S NIKKOR 28mm f/1.8G features a rounded 7-blade diaphragm to enhance that effect by giving a more natural appearance to out-of-focus elements.

Unleash your camera´s full potential
Nikon technologies for unrivaled performance
A great lens draws peak performance from a camera, and the AF-S NIKKOR 28mm f/1.8G is no exception. Impressive on both FX- and DX-format D-SLRs, it incorporates Nikon advancements for consistent, superlative performance, even in tough shooting situations. Nano Crystal (N) and Super Integrated (SIC) coatings enhance contrast and color and nearly eliminate ghosting and flare, even in backlit scenes. The Silent Wave Motor (SWM) powers high-speed autofocusing that’s extremely accurate and quiet.

Build an exceptional fast prime lens system
The wide-angle piece of Nikon´s versatile new f/1.8 FX lens collection
Pair the AF-S NIKKOR 28mm f/1.8G with the AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G and AF-S NIKKOR 85mm f/1.8G for a truly exceptional compact prime lens system. All three lenses offer the latest Nikon advancements and optical design characteristics, so you´ll get consistent performance at each focal length: wide-angle, standard and medium telephoto. It´s never been easier to expand your capabilities and creativity.


Overview

FX-format wide-angle lens with 28mm focal length and fast f/1.8 aperture.

An excellent match for high-resolution D-SLRs, the optical design delivers beautifully rendered images and movies. The fast f/1.8 aperture enables sharper shots in low light, and perfectly balances sharpness and bokeh.
