Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 35mm f/1.8G Lens
Key Features
  • F-Mount Lens/DX Format
  • 52.5mm (35mm Equivalent)
  • Aperture Range: f/1.8 to f/22
  • One Aspherical Element
Nearly as versatile as a prime lens can be, the AF-S DX NIKKOR 35mm f/1.8G from Nikon is a 52.5mm-equivalent lens for DX-format cameras, and is characterized by its sleek form factor, normal field of view, and bright f/1.8 maximum aperture. The fast design of the lens suits working in difficult lighting conditions and also enables improved control over depth of field for isolating subjects and working with selective focus techniques. The optical design incorporates one aspherical element, which helps to control distortion and spherical aberrations in order to produce notable sharpness and clarity. A Super Integrated Coating has also been applied to individual elements and controls lens flare and ghosting for greater contrast and color accuracy when working in bright and backlit conditions. Complementing the optics is a Silent Wave Motor, which enables fast, near-silent autofocus performance along with full-time manual focus override, to benefit both stills and video recording.

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

By B&H Photo's

Nearly as versatile as a prime lens can be, the AF-S DX NIKKOR 35mm f/1.8G from Nikon is a 52.5mm-equivalent lens for DX-format cameras, and is characterized by its sleek form factor, normal field of view, and bright f/1.8 maximum aperture. The fast design of the lens suits working in difficult lighting conditions and also enables improved control over depth of field for isolating subjects and working with selective focus techniques. The optical design incorporates one aspherical element, which helps to control distortion and spherical aberrations in order to produce notable sharpness and clarity. A Super Integrated Coating has also been applied to individual elements and controls lens flare and ghosting for greater contrast and color accuracy when working in bright and backlit conditions. Complementing the optics is a Silent Wave Motor, which enables fast, near-silent autofocus performance along with full-time manual focus override, to benefit both stills and video recording.

Normal-length prime lens is designed for DX-format Nikon F-mount cameras and provides a 52.5mm equivalent focal length.
Bright f/1.8 maximum aperture is well-suited to working in low-light conditions and also affords increased control over depth of field for working with selective focus techniques.
One aspherical element is used to reduce spherical aberrations and distortion in order to realize sharp imagery with accurate rendering.
A 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 design 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 DX NIKKOR 35mm f/1.8G Reviews

Works for me

By Jason
Rated 4 out of 5
Date: 2022-01-07

This is my 2nd prime after the AF 50mm f/1.8D and between the two of them I've stopped using the 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR kit lens. The 50mm was too narrow a field of view on the D5600 to be comfortable taking photos indoors. This 35mm is just wide enough for indoor use. The autofocus is fast, quite and accurate enough for my use. Wish they made a 24mm prime in the same price range.

Great starter lens

Tried it out this weekend with and engagement session and the photographs came out amazing. Just what you need in your bag for full lengths and group images.

A useful, light-weight prime

I normally use a zoom, but I especially like this smaller and lighter lens for carrying around when I'm not working on a specific project but I want to bring a DSLR along. The picture quality has been very good, and I enjoy the challenge of using a single focal length lens after primarily using a zoom for many years.

Exactly what I was looking for!

Love this lens for its crispness to the edges of a photo ... hard to beat at this price point.

Exactly What I Needed it to be

I was a little bit apprehensive about getting a refurbished lens, but I could not be happier with my impulse buy. I use this lens for lifestyle photos for my business and it's proven to be exactly what I needed to take my photos to the next level. It's great at isolating the subject of the photo and makes my life way easier than it was before when I was only using my 75mm lens. You can hardly tell that this lens is refurbished. The only tell is that it requires a tiny bit of extra effort to attach the lens to my D5300 but if that's the only price to pay, I'll happily keep paying it. Can't recommend highly enough!

question

Hi,I bought my 35mm f1.8G DX last November 2013 during my vacation in LA. I was very happy with this lens until my latest shoot last January 2014. I noticed that my shots are always over exposed. When I took off and checked the lens, the aperture stays open (f1.8) most of the time and never closes by default even if I change the aperture settings (higher f number say f8) on my camera. Could this be fixed? Please help. Thanks.

I'm sorry to hear that as It sounds as if the lens is defective. If you purchased the USA version of the lens it will have a 1 year International and 5 year USA warranty. Please contact Nikon directly to have them service the lens. http://www.nikon.com/

Asked by: Camilo
Yes, The Nikon N75, is electronically compatible with the Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 35mm f/1.8G Lens. The camera will perform autofocus, and aperture adjustments with the G lens, but because the Nikkor 35mm lens is a DX version, the corners of the photo will vignette and go black.
