Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 35mm f/1.8G ED Overview

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 AF-S NIKKOR 35mm f/1.8G ED Reviews

All around lens for any occasion.

By David
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-11-22

Overall this lens exceeded my expectations. My assessments are all done on a focus calibrated D810. Wide open contrast is above average and sharpness is high. It's one of those lenses where you don't need to tweak much in editing to get nice looking images. Focus is very fast and accurate. Bokeh is a little nervous at further distances, if your priority is bokeh at 35mm then you have expensive tastes and should check out the f/1.4 version. This is a reasonably priced sharp all-around lens to take anywhere.

Low light gem

I love shooting at night and doing Astro. Sure it's not the f/1.4 but this thing is plenty fast with a steady hand at twilight. Beautifully sharp low light images. It's also nice to not have a brick on my camera for once as I'm used to carrying around my 24-70 f/2.8. Awesome lens on my D850!

Good lens however the quality is a little lacking

So this is a great fast lens that takes great photos. However, the tolerances on the focus ring are poor. This results in a wobble that make noice when moving the lens around and using the focus ring. It dose not affect the images taken with the lens it just makes it feel cheap.

Sharp Lens

A really nice lens.

By Raoul

I am very impressed with this lens. Its sharpness is excellent and gives up nothing to my pro lenses at f/5.6. It is small and light--a lens I can walk around with all day. I got it because I have several SLR cameras that I will shoot until they die, but it would make no sense for a Z-series camera owner.

Nikon 35mm amazing!

I have a DX 35mm lens but recently upgraded and also bought this FX lens and I am glad I did. I mainly shoot concerts and this is amazing for shows with being right up front and capture the performers. This lens is incredible and I would recommend to anyone.

Great prime lens

By Studio67

I love the sharpness and the dof of this lens. I was looking for something a bit wider than the 50mm and this is the ticket. Much lighter than my 24-70mm which has its purpose. I'm definitely going to use my prime lens for more shoots in the future. Not a lot of bokeh but I use it more for environmental shoots. Only downside is it's plastic and feels cheap , but light on the hands. Still performs extremely well! I pair it with my D850.

Great for walking around with one lens on the camera

By Richard

It's a great focal length for street photography and environmental portraits without distortion; the f/1.8 speed is good in low-light conditions; and the lens seems to focus quickly and accurately. It's my new favorite for when I want to keep things simple, with one lens on the camera.

What's the difference between (85mm+35mm) f1.8G and f1.8G ED
Asked by: YOUSSEF MOHAMED
Nikon's ED (extra-low dispersion) glass improves sharpness and color accuracy, primarily by reducing chromatic aberration. The higher refraction index of the glass also allows a design that is lighter and more compact. The new f/1.8 G ED lenses are amazingly sharp. DxO Mark scores both the 35mm and 85mm f/1.8 G ED lenses the same as their f/1.4 equivalents.
