Nikon 35mm f/1.4 overview

  • 1Description

The AF-S NIKKOR 35mm f/1.4G Lens from Nikon is a fast lens with a classic wide-angle focal length. Its f/1.4 maximum aperture allows for effective low-light shooting, even handheld. It's also able to achieve a very narrow depth of field when shooting at f/1.4, creating a dramatic separation between your subject and background.

The lens features a Silent Wave Motor (SWM) for quick, quiet, and accurate autofocus. Its Rear Focusing (RF) system ensures that the front element won't rotate during focus, making it possible to use a circular polarizing filter with the lens. Two focus modes are available -- M/A and M. M/A is the autofocus mode yet allows manual focus override for fine-tuned precision and M is the full-time manual focus mode.

The optical design of the lens features 10 elements in 7 groups, with a single aspherical element that reduces coma and other types of aberrations -- even when shooting wide open. It also boasts Nikon's exclusive Nano-Crystal Coat, which minimizes flare -- even in backlit situations. A nine blade circular aperture delivers a pleasing out of focus background.

This is a "G" series lens, which means that there is no physical aperture ring -- the aperture must be controlled by the camera. It can be used on Nikon FX and DX format DSLRs. When used on a DX camera, the lens provides the equivalent field of view of a 52.5mm lens in the 35mm format.

Fast Wide-Angle Lens
A wide-angle prime lens with a fast f/1.4 maximum aperture, it is suitable for almost all photographic applications, including but not limited to landscapes, night photography, interiors, weddings, photojournalism, and astrophotography.
Optimized for Edge to Edge Sharpness on Both FX and DX-Format DSLRs
When used on a DX-format DSLR, the angle of view is 44°, equivalent to a focal length of 52.5mm in the FX/35mm format.
Nikon Silent Wave Motor (SWM)
Enables fast, accurate and quiet autofocus.
Rear Focus (RF)
Provides smooth and fast autofocus while eliminating front barrel rotation and lens extension when focusing.
Aspherical Lens Element
One aspherical lens element reduces coma and other types of aberrations, even when shooting at the widest available aperture.
Nano Crystal Coat
Nano Crystal lens coating reduces ghosting and interior flare across a wide range of wavelengths for even greater image clarity.
Rounded 9-Blade Circular Diaphragm
Renders a more natural, pleasing appearance to out-of-focus image elements.
M/A Focus Mode Switch
Enables quick changes between manual and autofocus operation and seamless override of the AF system for precise manual focus when needed.

Nikon 35mm f/1.4 reviews

AF-S NIKKOR 35mm f/1.4G Lens is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 144.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This lens rocks This is one of the two lenses I use to shoot weddings and it rocks. I used to use the old Nikon 35mm f2 lens for weddings but this lens is sharper, faster in low light and focuses faster. It also finds its way onto the D4 for everyday stuff, like hanging out with the kid, going to downtown Bend for a night with friends, hikes, bikes, backpacks. Twigs with bright sky behind do indeed make purple lines at the edges, but who cares? I have yet to meet a bride complaining of lateral fringe in a portrait. If you use a camera for work, get rid of the old cheap lenses and upgrade to these new super fast fixed focal length lenses. They're worth every cent.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful Lens, a few caveats... I really do love this lens! I am a commercial photographer and it is my go-to for lifestyle shoots. It is a good sturdy construction that puts up with whatever I put it through! Auto focus is great, manual focus is smooth, super sharp (even decent wide open), bokeh is gorgeous (duh!) all good things! However a couple things I noticed were... there is a good bit of barrel distortion and vignetting (although easily corrected in post) and also a good bit of chromatic aberration. For a lens of this price I thought those issues would be nonexistent. However, not enough to make me not like the lens, just a few things I noticed. Overall, great lens would definitely recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BUY THIS LENS! I am a professional photographer and I shoot only Nikon lenses and gear. I am currently shooting a D800E and as you can imagine, with 36Megapixels, lenses matter. I have been on this mission recently to stop using my 24-70, and 70-200 lenses and start replacing them with primary lenses. The 35MM lens has proven to be an extremeely versatile lens with amazing clarity and very few flaws. Of course the lens is extremely expensive, but depending on the use, there isn't much out there that can compare in quality. The performance is great in low light, and the bokeh is amazing as well. If you have the means, pick one up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Truly outstanding lens! I did quite a bit of soul-searching about whether to take the plunge into prime lenses -- looked at numerous image samples of Nikon 1.4g primes - 24,35, 85, and concluded that the 35 1.4g best suited my needs. I have no regrets whatsoever, in fact it may be the best lens I've ever owned. It is very sharp, has a nice bokeh, and excellent color and contrast. It's great for all types of photography -- portraits, landscapes, night, street, etc. I see very little not to like about this lens -- it does have a lot of vignetting at f1.4 (not unexpected) but this is easily fixed in Photoshop or automatically by NX2 if you shoot raw.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Workhorse prime This lens has amazing detail with decent bokeh (although it's definitely not the best bokeh of the Nikkor lenses). Great for street, portraits, and everyday use. When I don't feel like carrying a 24-70 f/2.8 around, I use this lens. If I don't feel like using the tripod in blue hour / nighttime during photo walks, I take out this lens to replace the 24-70 for low light performance. I've even shot friends' weddings with this, which resulted in photos better than the official photographer. The size is great for candids (so people aren't timid by the size). The weather sealing is a plus. Decent weight. Highly recommended.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great prime This lens is a perfect prime for photojournalism, travel, and everyday walking around. The lens is good quality, despite being mostly made of plastic. Great in low-light. A little slow to focus but not so much that I really care. If you shoot on a cropped sensor, this lens is equivalent to a 52.5mm, so it's close to a standard lens, although you might be better off getting the DX version because of the price difference. My one complaint about this lens is the filter size, 67mm. Most other pro Nikon lenses, e.g., 24-70 f/2.8g, 70-200 f/2.8g, 85mm f/1.4g, 24mm f/1.4g, use a 77mm filter size, but for some reason Nikon chose to go with a 67mm filter on the 35mm f/1.4g. Like I said, my only complaint.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent lens I realized after many years of trying to use a 50mm lens as my normal lens, that it was like my father's lens, antiquated rule of thumb. If you take family photos with your camera, good choice. But I do landscapes, street, and city night photography. For this a 35mm is much more appropriate. It is a great lens, bright and sharp. Gives me a lot of flexibility. It also makes my D800 look like a pro camera. I realize this is silly, but it looks great on the body. It also weighs a ton. I have a couple Nikon 35mm f2 lenses. They weigh nothing. One could make the argument that the f2 makes much more sense as it cost about a third and must weight about a third as much. But I love the f1.4.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of Nikon's Best! This is one of Nikon's best lenses and is an amazing piece of glass! It's on my D810 90% of the time! In my opinion the 35mm focal length is perfect for landscapes, portraits, architecture, street, and everyday/family photography. The fast f/1.4 aperture allows you to shoot in just about any kind of light and the depth of color it renders is beautiful. This lens is hefty but is well balanced on my camera... feels perfect! I've gone away from using all of my f/2.8 zooms and have rediscovered my love for photography through this magnificent prime lens. My sample is sharp, has excellent bokeh, and built to last! You will not regret owning this lens if you decide to purchased. I plan on getting the 85mm f/1.4 soon and will undoubtedly be shooting with these 2 lenses exclusively!
