Summary: Tack sharp. Fast focus. Reasonable price. Though I use DX cameras now, I'm only buying FX lenses because this works well with my old Nikon F2a, and will transfer to a DX camera when I feel the need to move that direction.
Great Lens! Remember to lock the aperture ring at 22 on a D700.

Summary: This lens has saved me when I get in tight spots on a wedding day and need something wide. I am a fan of prime lenses but didn't want to spend the money on the 35 1.4 so I opted for the older 35 2.0 and I am so glad I did! I am a wedding photographer use it on my Nikon D700. This lens has produced some beautiful images for me.
Summary: I want to complete me set of identical lens because I have a 50mm and I always wanted a 35mm. After I got this it never goes off my camera because i don't find any reason to take it off. The quality is amazing and the images is like wat u see with your naked eyes.
Excellent lens, multi purpose for DX and FX cameras!

Summary: I bought this lens, so that I could have a dual purpose lens. Purpose #1 was to have a reasonably fast "normal" lens for my dx digital camera. It serves well in this capacity, although just a little slower (and significantly more expensive) than the baseline 35mm f/1.8 dx lens (which I sold to buy this lens) The second reason, was to have a wider prime for my full-frame (film) camera. It works great for this, and makes the switch worth it!
Summary: I wanted a small, light lens for just walking around. 35mm give a 'normal' perspective on a DX camera and this lens does just fine in that regard. It is fast (at f2) and produces sharp images.
