Nikon 35mm f/1.8 Overview

  • 1Description

One of the most flexible single focal lengths available, the AF-S NIKKOR 35mm f/1.8G ED from Nikon is a compact prime wide-angle well-suited for everyday shooting. Its bright f/1.8 maximum aperture excels in a variety of lighting conditions and also helps to maintain a relatively compact, lightweight design for walk-around use. The optical design employs both aspherical and extra-low dispersion elements to control both spherical and chromatic aberrations for high sharpness, clarity, and color accuracy. A Super Integrated Coating has also been applied to limit flare and ghosting for improved contrast. Additionally, benefitting the optical assets, a Silent Wave Motor affords fast and precise autofocus performance, along with full-time manual focus override, to benefit both stills and video applications.

Wide-angle 35mm lens is designed for FX-format F-mount cameras, however can also be used with DX models where it provides a 52.5mm equivalent focal length.
Bright f/1.8 maximum aperture benefits working in low-light conditions and also affords control over depth of field for working with selective focus techniques.
One extra-low dispersion glass element is used in the optical construction to reduce a variety of chromatic aberrations and color fringing for a high degree of clarity and color neutrality.
One aspherical element is used to reduce spherical aberrations and distortion in order to realize sharp imagery with accurate rendering.
Super Integrated Coating has been applied to individual elements to suppress internal reflections, flare, and ghosting for improved contrast and color accuracy when working in strong lighting conditions.
Silent Wave Motor affords quick, quiet, and precise autofocus performance along with full-time manual focus override. A Rear Focusing System is also used, where only the rear lens group is moved during focusing, to maintain the overall length of the lens during use and to promote faster focusing speeds.
Rounded seven-blade diaphragm promotes a pleasing out of focus quality that benefits the use of shallow depth of field and selective focus techniques.

    Nikon 35mm f/1.8 Reviews

    AF-S NIKKOR 35mm f/1.8G ED Lens is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 99.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Serves multi purposes. Sharp! I'm using the lens on my Nikon D800e. This is a perfect for indoor portrait when I want to capture the interior and the subject. It produces amazing bokeh and focuses the subject perfectly. It's a perfect lens to capture the background and to focus a subject. And it's just wide enough to photography streets and normal landscapes without huge distortion that 14mm would give. I'm also enjoying this lens during events when I want to capture many people in a limited space. A 50mm or 85mm isn't wide enough to include many people in a shot, but this lens has dynamic range to give more perspectives. It is a little pricy, but the lens has many uses.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent f1.8 prime for FX The longer I shoot the more I enjoy primes. They have much better Bokeh, they are substantially lighter and smaller, and they make you think about composition more. My favorite lens so far is Nikon's 50 f1.4 and I figured a 35mm would help in landscape and group shots. I've shot about 300 photos with the new 35mm and it's a keeper. It's light and balanced on my D610, and focus performance is spot on. I'm most impressed with the smooth Bokeh at f1.8. Exposures have been a little dark compared with other lenses. There is vignetting, but Lightroom easily corrects this. See a high-resolution example here:

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Light and compact I consider this to be a pretty good lens. Not the best in my kit, but not bad, and definitely worth keeping. Very light and compact so it's easy to carry around. Sharp enough. Control over CA and purple fringing good except in the most extreme situations - nothing I consider a problem. A little soft at f1.8 and f16, but certainly usable. Focusses nice and close. Not the smoothest focussing ring but acceptable. Excellent sunstars - long, soft spikes at f16; not sharply defined but quite nice. Minimal flare, none bad. Are there better 35mm lenses made? Most likely, but this is a good lens and a very good value for the price in my opinion.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect normal lens On full frame, 35mm is easier to work with than 50mm. You don't get the wide angle effect you get at wider angles, you can get what you need in the frame, and lean forward if you need a perspective more like 50mm. This lens is 3x the cost of the 50mm, but the wider perspective means a lot to me. I keep it in my bag for low light photos or whenever I don't want to swing a big zoom around. Can give that nice 3d look. AF-D primes are good, but this new class is a lot better. Super fast and accurate autofocus. Great performance wide open. Nice and light, you can carry it all day. Very close focus. Lenses like this are one of the reasons I moved to full frame.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is a really nice lens I am a working photographer but I won't consider myself a pro given that this isn't my full time job. This lens is a very useful focal length and tack sharp. If I worked in tough environments with my gear I wouldn't pick this lenses as a work horse. It feels a little light to be a work horse. Overall, I really like the images that I am able to produce with this lens. It's a really good compromise for the price. I've rented the 1.4, which is a superb lens, but I decided that I could put the $1,100 saving towards a trip where I could put myself in front of some interesting subjects.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Overall An Outstanding Lens I purchased this lens used from another photographer because it's on back order here. As a wedding photographer, over the years I've owned many 35mm FL prime lenses, such as Nikon AF-S 35 f/1.4G, Nikon 35 f/2D, Sigma Art 35 1.4, Carl Zeiss ZF 35/2, and I can say I really love this lens. Not only is its size/weight perfect, but at wide open it's as sharp as 1.4G at f/1.8 in center as well. It has less distortion than 1.4G does, which is another plus. The downside is some CA at wide open in high contrast scene but it's not as bad as Sigma. Its AF speed is faster and more accurate than 1.4G. If 1.4G and 1.8G were priced same, I still would choose this one. With today's high ISO digital capabilities on cameras, I don't really need 1.4 for speed anymore.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This lens is razor sharp The 35mm1.8 is right on the money, about as sharp of a lens that any owner could ask for. On a full frame Nikon body, it is in the category. Of legendary, I say that because it is continuing the line of 35mm lenses that Nikon has been known for. I have used this lens for mostly general work andf just playing around, but yes it is serious. I will be taking this lens on a travel assignment pending in the future and any and all commercial assignments that might come up, over all no issues, and any chroma or lens refractions are dealt with in Lightroom

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from a fine 35mm lens: sharp, contrasty, small, and light I bought the 35mm f/1.4G when it came out, since it was the only newer 35mm full-frame lens Nikon made. I've used it for quite a while, and I've been happy with it, but it's a big, heavy lens, and I rarely shot it wide open. When Nikon released the f/1.8 version, I thought about purchasing it, but I waited until I had read some reviews. I finally traded the f/1.4 for the f/1.8 version, and I have no regrets at all. The 35mm f/1.8G is a great lens: sharp, contrasty, and so much smaller and lighter than its big brother.
