Product Description

From the Manufacturer


With a compact, lightweight design, the AF-S DX NIKKOR 35mm f/1.8G provides the high reproduction capability and picture quality for which Nikkor lenses are renowned at an affordable price. The ring type SWM offers quiet AF operation. Although all lens groups shift during focusing, the front element and filter mount do not rotate and the barrel length does not change, which is useful when using filter mounted SB-R200 Wireless Remote Speedlight units.

The AF-S DX Nikkor 35mm f/1.8G optical design allows a different look and feel to images taken with zoom lenses, and its dimensions are ideal for discrete snapshots and landscape shooting with a picture angle that approximates that of the human eye. With its rounded seven-blade diaphragm opening, out-of-focus elements appear more natural. When mounted on a DX-format SLR, the picture angle is the 35mm equivalent focal length of 50mm.

The AF-S Nikkor 35mm f/1.8G has two focus modes, M/A (manual override autofocus) and M (manual focus). The M/A mode enables instant manual switching during AF operation. The lens also features a rubber seal to minimize moisture ingression around the mount and can focus down to 0.3 meters (0.98 ft).

AF-S DX Nikkor 35mm f/1.8G Lens Highlights
  • Fast, f/1.8 prime lens is perfect for low-light conditions, travel, environmental portrait and general photography
  • Engineered for Nikon DX-format D-SLRS, the AF-S DX Nikkor 35mm f/1.8G lens renders a picture angle approximating the classic normal angle of view of a 50mm lens on a Nikon FXformat digital SLR or 35mm film camera
  • Aspherical lens element minimizes coma and other types of lens aberrations, further improving image integrity
  • Nikon Super Integrated Coating (SIC) enhances light transmission efficiency and offers color consistency and reduced flare
  • Exclusive Nikon Silent Wave Motor (SWM) enables fast, accurate and quiet autofocus
  • Close focusing to 1 foot for creative perspectives and versatility
  • Rounded 7-blade diaphragm opening makes out-of-focus elements appear more natural
  • Accepts 52mm filter attachments

And having tried it out, I want to buy it! However, I will not spend 40% more for it than my U.S. neighbours, especially when our dollar is at par. Nikon Canada needs to wake up...

Not only the lens but the price at which Amazon is selling it at. This price is $30 cheaper than my favourite bricks and mortar camera store. The lens comes with a lens hood and carrying bag which hold my 50mm lens perfectly. It is all but silent in focusing and the sharpness and colour rendering of it for the price is amazing. It equates to a 50mm lens in the full sensor world so what you see with your eye is how this lens sees.

I am not a fan of telescopic lenses, due to the compromises you make in speed for the different focal lengths, and prefer primes.

This should have been my first lens when I bought my 7100 but better late than never. An excellent purchase.

A lovely, fast lens that will really force you to sharpen up on your skills. Here's what I've learned:

I have a D5100 (small-frame) so a 35mm lens is effectively 50mm, a 50mm lens is effectively 80mm, and so on. I was on the fence between 35mm and 50mm, I got the 35mm, and for a small-frame that's ABSOLUTELY what you want.

I wanted a prime lens primarily for shooting in the dark, which this does wonderfully.

BUT:

When it's dark, you want to open up the aperture as much as possible, to let all those photons in, to get a fast shutter speed, so you don't need flash or a tripod, so you're going to shoot at f/1.8. That gives a really narrow depth-of-field (and awesome bokeh). Narrow DoF means your focus has to be just right, which is fine, since this lens has the AF motor built-in. The big problem as far as I'm concerned is this: for the camera to autofocus properly, it has to shine an obnoxiously bright light (remember we're shooting low-light here) that is really annoying for the subject, if the subkect happens to be people and/or animals. This is personal taste here, but I like to take pictures without influencing what I'm taking a picture of.

So I end up on manual focus when it's dark and I'm shooting people, which is fine because it forces me to be a better photographer, and in the digital age there's no harm in taking nine out-of-focus pictures before getting it right.

If you think you're going to slap this lens on your camera and magically get night vision, you're only half right. You'll still need to work for it, but the good news is the results are amazing.

Bought this lens for my new Nikon D3200, after doing so online research. This lens takes very shape and clear images, focus very quickly and brings portraits to life. Still waiting for opportunity to take night scapes and landscapes. Can go wrong with this lens, amazon had the best price in could find in 3 months, by $30!

Have you ever used a lightweight, inexpensive yet sharp, clean and fast focussing lens made by Nikon? Nope, I'm not kidding -- try this one. It reminds me of the f/1.8 50mm AIS, but that was 30-years ago...

As a prime it isn't 'versatile', but it adds versatility to your set: low light, natural perspective in- and out-door with very little distortion.

52mm filter thread -- you can play with your old filters and see how that old linear polariser works with DSLR...

It does have a bit of chromatic aberration at it's sharpest apertures and it vignettes a bit wide open, but less of these than some of the lenses with triple+ sticker price.

Good lens. Arrived well packaged. Arrived fast. My D5200 with this lens makes for incredible low light shooting.

Whoever said these were refurbished or reconditioned was wrong. Mine was brand new.

I have the 50mm but wanted something with less zoom and this is the exact lens if you want to get some great bokeh.

This Nikon 35mm f/1.8G AF-S DX lens is my best one yet! It is a very nice, fast, and quiet lens perfect for any amateur or professional photographer. I have just started to get into photography and this lens will help a lot. I have done a lot of research on this lens and have found it to be the perfect one for me, but I do have some things which I do not like about it. Even though this lens has some really nice features, it does have some bad ones as well. Both the good and bad features I have found are listed below:

PROS:

- Aperture of f/1.8G (shallow depth of field)
- Quick auto-focus
- Very quiet auto-focus
- M/A Focus Mode

CONS:

- Plastic Body
- Very lightweight
- No Vibration Reduction (VR)
- Flimsy Focus Ring

Overall, I think that this lens is still really good and that prime lenses with such high apertures are a must have lens for your kit.
