Nikon NIKKOR Z 35mm f/1.8 S Overview

By B&H Photo's

A favored focal length for everything from landscape to street shooting, the NIKKOR Z 35mm f/1.8 S is a prime wide-angle lens characterized by its versatility and bright f/1.8 maximum aperture. Furthering its merits, the optical design features two extra-low dispersion elements and three aspherical elements, which reduce a variety of aberrations and distortion to produce imagery with high sharpness, clarity, and accurate color rendering. Both Nano Crystal and Super Integrated Coatings are used, too, to suppress flare and ghosting for greater color fidelity and higher contrast.

Benefitting the optics, a stepping motor provides quick, quiet, and precise autofocus performance along with full-time manual focus override to suit both stills and video applications. Additionally, a programmable control ring can be set for intuitive adjustment over a variety of camera and exposure settings.

Prime wide-angle lens is designed for FX-format Z-mount mirrorless cameras.
Bright f/1.8 maximum aperture suits working in difficult lighting conditions and also offers increased control over depth of field for isolating subjects and working with selective focus.
Three aspherical elements are used to reduce spherical aberrations and distortion in order to realize sharp imagery with accurate rendering.
Two extra-low dispersion elements greatly reduce color fringing and chromatic aberrations in order to produce greater clarity and color rendering.
A Nano Crystal Coat, along with a Super Integrated Coating, has been applied to lens elements to minimize surface and internal reflections for a marked reduction in lens flare and ghosting.
Stepping motor delivers impressively smooth, quiet, and fast autofocus performance that is well-suited to both stills and video applications. Full-time manual focus override is also possible and an internal focusing design is used, where only the internal lens groups are moved during focusing, to maintain the overall length of the lens during use and to promote faster focusing speeds.
Programmable Control Ring is, by default, set to adjust manual focus, but can also be used to control aperture or exposure compensation.
Specialized electromagnetic aperture mechanism provides greater exposure control stability that is especially beneficial when working with fast continuous shooting rates.
Rounded nine-blade diaphragm promotes a pleasing out of focus quality that benefits the use of shallow depth of field and selective focus techniques.
Dust- and moisture-resistant lens barrel benefits the lens' use in inclement conditions.

Does the lens barrel on the Nikkor Z 35mm f/1.8s move in/out when focusing, or does the barrel stay internal when focusing?
Asked by: George
Internal and the length does not change. And the front does not rotate and easier to use polarizers.

Would you get this to replace a Tamron 35/1.4?
Asked by: Javier
If you're happy with the lens you're using, then save the money. If you need to move to a new lens then seriously consider the Nikor Z35 F1.8; great bokeh, super sharp and fast focus as you'd expect from a prime lens.

Does this lens have internal focusing or does the barrel rotate when focusing ?
Asked by: Marcus
Internal. I love this lens. I have a lot of Z glass, including the 50mm f/1.2. This 35mm f/1.8 is SUCH a good combination of small size, light weight, and fast aperture.

The mount is so tight I need to force it onto my z9. Is this expected or is mine defective?
Asked by: Amanda
The Nikon NIKKOR Z 35mm f/1.8 S Lens should have a secure fit on the Z9 camera--it may loosen a bit over time. But, it shouldn't have to be forced--you should contact Nikon if necessary.
