Nikon NIKKOR Z 35mm f/1.8 S Overview

Complementing the lens itself, the Nikon NIKKOR Z 35mm f/1.8 S Lens with UV Filter Kit from B&H bundles the versatile wide-angle prime with a 62mm UV filter.

Nikon NIKKOR Z 35mm f/1.8 S Lens

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.

Chiaro 62mm 95-UVAT UV Filter

The 62mm 95-UVAT UV Filter is one of Chiaro’s highly-rated protective UV filters with 95% light transmission. It’s useful for photographers of all levels who demand high-quality glass and other essential features for great image fidelity and construction.

To achieve 95% light transmission, Chiaro uses highly-polished optical glass, multi-coating, and additional advanced elements that improve the filter’s light transmission. A hard-anodized aluminum filter ring is designed to screw on and off effortlessly, and it’s thin to prevent vignetting when used with wide-angle lenses.

Image quality is what matters most at Chiaro. The company has tested and combined many features and essentials to achieve superior image quality and the highest light transmission. To help take the confusion out of selecting a filter, Chiaro prominently displays the light transmission levels so you can choose the perfect filter for your lens and photo session.

95% Light Transmission

Protect your lens while maintaining optical quality. By using highly-polished optical glass, Chiaro offers a 95% transmission rate. And the company verifies the ratings with ISO certified lab testing.

Polished Optical Glass

Highly-polished glass is essential to achieve a high level of light transmission. The optical glass in this Chiaro filter is polished for flatness that ensures great optical clarity.


Multi-coating enhances light transmission to the demanding level set for all Chiaro filters. It reduces unwanted internal reflections and ghosting that can compromise your images.

UV Protection

The filter blocks UV light and reduces the bluish cast of daylight that can affect color accuracy, especially at higher altitudes.

Hard Anodized Aluminum Construction

The process of hard anodizing toughens and strengthens the aluminum for a lightweight yet durable filter ring.

Slim Design

Measuring only 3.2mm, this filter is slim enough to use on wide-angle lenses without experiencing vignetting.

Top Knurling

Top knurling is designed to offer a firm grip on the filter when you're attaching or removing it.

Secure Attachment

It takes two full turns to mount the filter on your lens. This feature will securely hold your Chiaro filter through the most demanding photo shoots.

Front Threads

The front threads on the filter allow you to stack filters by screwing them onto your Chiaro filter.

One of the sharpest ones out there! My everyday lens. It's lightweight, fast and sharp. Perfect for indoor and outdoor shots!

The perfect lens for me

By Erik

I really love this lens. 35mm is my favorite general purpose, walk-around, everyday focal length--especially when you can get reasonably close to the action. This is ideal for chasing my kids and pets around the house. Performance on the Z6 ii is perfect. Makes for a pleasant, lightweight, easy-to-carry package that encourages me take my camera more often than I otherwise would have. Like everyone else has already stated, the image quality is phenomenal--this is sharp glass! Way sharper than my amateur status can probably take advantage of... but I'm glad to have it. Attached photos are jpegs, straight out of my Z6 II. Some cropping applied for framing / aesthetics... but no further edits. When I just want easy snapshots without any editing, this combo is perfect! Of course, it only gets better when you shoot RAW.

Super sharp

Love this lens. Light to carry and super sharp. I've been taking shots wide open and love the images and bokeh. Better Bokeh IMO than F mount lenses I have used.

The Nikkor Z 35mm f/1.8 S lens spends more time on my Z5 than any other lens. It easily replaced both my Z 28mm f/2.8 and Z 40mm f/2 lenses and It's thinner and lighter than the Nikkor Z 50mm f/1.8 S lens.

The new Nikon S 35mm f1.8 lens is the very best 35mm I have ever owned, period. And this lens will propel me to keep my Z5 and quickly acquire a Nikon ZII body. Along with the new S 50mm f1.8 and S 85mm f1.8 lenses, I am in a Nikon prime lens heaven!

Coming from both the Nikkor 50mm f1.4D and the Nikkor 50mm f1.8G, this lens is way sharper wide open, from edge-to-edge at every aperture. I especially appreciate how this lens virtually free of chromatic aberrations, especially when compared to my 50 f1.4D, and noticeably sharper than the f1.8G. This is an essential piece of kit that I often use when recording video. The focus is quick, smooth and quiet. You won't be disappointed with this lens.

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.
