The AF NIKKOR 35mm f/2D Lens from Nikon is a compact and lightweight wide-angle lens useful for a broad range of applications and its fast f/2 maximum aperture makes it ideal for low light shooting as well as fast shutter speeds when shooting hand-held. It provides a 52.5mm focal length equivalence when used on DX format Nikon DSLRs.

The lens weighs just 7.2 oz making it a great lens for travel and everyday use. Nikon's Super Integrated Lens Coating improves light transmission, reducing ghosting and flare and it accepts 52mm filters. An integrated aperture control ring enables manual control of exposure in addition to AE control through the camera body. For programmed auto or shutter-priority auto exposure shooting, use the minimum aperture lock lever to lock the lens aperture at f/22.

Autofocus is not supported by D40, D40x, D60, D3000, D3100, D3200, D3300, D5000, D5100, D5200, D5300 cameras--lens may be used with manual focus only. Be sure to check your camera's lens-compatibility information before selecting a new lens.

    What a great little gem this lens it. Top quality for a reasonable price which is so rare with lenses. It's so versatile as it is wide enough for landscapes and tight enough for some creative portraiture. I shoot products and food and I'm including a sample so you can see what this is capable of. Obviously, none of us want to switch back and forth between lenses which is why we typically get the 24-70mm or 16-35 which are great lenses! But fixed are just better plus you're getting almost a full stop more light on this than the zoom lens and for the price I love having a few inexpensive fixed around that I'm not scared of breaking to backup my 24-70mm. The best part about them is that they are equal if not better than the same focal length on the zooms! Great buys.

    This is not one of Nikon's sharp lenses, softer even than the older 50mm f1.4 and no where near as sharp as the Sigma 30mm f1.4 lens on a DX camera where the Sigma provides the perspective of a 34mm lens. Well worth the extra money to get the Sigma is you will be using a DX camera or getting the Zeiss 35mm f2 even if it is manual focus for a FX camera.

    The 24-70mm f2.8 is much sharper at its 35mm focal length than this Nikon prime.

        Comments about Nikon AF NIKKOR 35mm f/2D Lens:

        My favorite lens is big and heavy (24-70mm 2.8) and, being a mom of 2 small kids, sometimes I just don't feel like taking my camera with me, so I decided to buy this one which is small and light, it makes a huge difference for me. I use it for everyday pictures of my family, indoor story telling or quick trips to the park. Image quality is great, I use it on my D800 but haven't tested yet on my D90.

              I use this on a D700, but have also thrown it on my D70s a few times. I find it's FOV perfect as well as it's bokeh characteristics. The build quality is top notch and it feels like a real lens in my hands. It also seems to autofocus faster than the Nikkor 35mm f/1.8 DX AF-S, and I may just recommend this over that for DX cameras. It greats real close to subjects and I enjoy it for the casual portrait and as a walk-about lens.

                  Comments about Nikon AF NIKKOR 35mm f/2D Lens:

                  The 35mm focal length is a classic and so useful as an all around choice. I was trying to decide between the new 35mm/f1.8 and the classic f/2. For the money, the f/2 version can't be beat. It is the perfect companion for my Df in everyday use. The combination of size, weight and sharpness makes it ideal. I use it for a walking around lens on the street as well as for family photo oppurtunities. The extra field of view makes it ideal. The lens is lightweight, but feels very solid and is still made in Japan! Just get one, you won't be disappointed!

                    They say the best camera is the one you have with you. This is the small lens i mount to keep a camera with me. The focus may be louder when hunting, but my cameras are so acurate that its never a problem. This lens seems to focus faster than any of my AF-s nikon prime lenses.

                      Very nice accurate and fast lens for either format. For a DX it is a perfect 50mm equivalent (for those of us who grew up with silver). I also love the construction on this as compared to the G lens series. This along with the 50 f1:1.4 D are two prime lenses everyone must have.

                      Comments about Nikon AF NIKKOR 35mm f/2D Lens:

                      Have always wanted this lens. Own most of Nikon primes and have for years. This is not latest 1.4 rendition range, but this older lens making design thick, polished glass gives a special quality to the finished image. Shoot a lot of scenics and am enjoying looking at the post view shot in the display of the clarity of the scene reproduced thru this lens glass. (PS-would probably purchase the new 1.4-1.8 range being popularized today if I were starting out).

                            This is a fantastic lens for my DF and my D90. Very fast AF, sharp across the field. I prefer it to the 50mm for many shoots.

                              Since I upgraded to FX format I have a renewed interest in fixed focal length lenses and manual focus. I used to use a 35mm as my normal back when I was shooting film. The detail and sharpness of the sensor on my Nikon D610 reminds me of shooting with Kodachrome and this lens delivers all the detail and at f/2 is nice and bright in the viewfinder.

                                    I had an old MF 35mm Nikkor lens from years ago, and wanted to update it with this lens. This lens will not disappoint. Edge sharpness is not great unless stopped down somewhat, but I find that it is great for my needs. Small, compact, fast and sharp; what more could you need!? This lens will be with me all the time!

                                      This lens is on my Df all the time. the 35mm view is so versatile. the maximum F2 aperture is incredible. i found this lens incredibly sharp at f2.8 but is good to have the option to shoot at f2. The performance is truly amazing for the price. very lightweight, great built quality made in japan, focuses very very very close. almost like a macro. i can't find any reason not to recommend this lens. and also look beautiful. Love this old D series lenses look compared to the new G.
