Excerpt: The 35mm focal length is a classic and so useful as an all around choice. I was trying to decide between the new 35mm/f1.8 and the classic f/2. For the money, the f/2 version can't be beat. It is the perfect companion for my Df in everyday use. The combination of size, weight and sharpness makes it ideal. I use it for a walking around lens on the street as well as for family photo oppurtunities. The extra field of view makes it ideal.
Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Strong Construction
Excerpt: They say the best camera is the one you have with you. This is the small lens i mount to keep a camera with me. The focus may be louder when hunting, but my cameras are so acurate that its never a problem. This lens seems to focus faster than any of my AF-s nikon prime lenses.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Size, Small, Strong Construction
Excerpt: Very nice accurate and fast lens for either format. For a DX it is a perfect 50mm equivalent (for those of us who grew up with silver). I also love the construction on this as compared to the G lens series. This along with the 50 f1: 1.4 D are two prime lenses everyone must have.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: Have always wanted this lens. Own most of Nikon primes and have for years. This is not latest 1.4 rendition range, but this older lens making design thick, polished glass gives a special quality to the finished image. Shoot a lot of scenics and am enjoying looking at the post view shot in the display of the clarity of the scene reproduced thru this lens glass. (PS-would probably purchase the new 1.4-1.8 range being popularized today if I were starting out).

Summary: I bought one of these 4 years ago for my brother, I recently bought another one for me because I loved it. I used it for a trip to NY... the light, the sharpness, the fast focus was amazing. It's my all-purpose lens, It's quite cool with portraits and group pics. It has replaced a cheap 50mm I have.
