Summary: I think this lens is one of the best lens that Nikon has ever come out with , you can use it indoor with or without flash , out doors and for every type of photography. This is the best lens you can ever buy.
Summary: I owned the Sigma 35 "Art" lens, and while it was nice and sharp, I am glad I replaced it with the Nikon version, as I greatly prefer how Nikon lenses render the out of focus areas of the picture.
Excerpt: I had been using both the 24mm and 35mm frequently and when it came down to buy 1 I picked the 35mm. Its amazing. The 24 is a bit too wide sometimes. The 35mm sits right in that sweet spot where you can get wide enough but can still pull off a portrait and get some nice bokeh.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
++ Good close focus capability with great image sharpness ++

Summary: This Nikon AF-S Nikkor 35mm f/1.4G is a wide-angle lens that's sharp and captures a lot of light, but it's quite expensive. PROS: + Excellent center sharpness. + Wide aperture gathers a lot of light. + Solid build quality. + Good close focus capability. CONS: - Some edge softness at wider apertures.
Excerpt: This is an outstanding prime lens. It is extremely sharp in center frame wide open and focus is very accurate. Focus speed is on par with the 24 and 85 1.4 lenses from Nikon. I believe it is consistently more accurate than the 24mm. No AF fine tuning was necessary on my D810 or D4S.
Excerpt: A tad soft at f1.4, but great sharpness from f1.8 and higher. Chromatic aberration was strong with D810 at f1.4, dropped off at f1.6, and was not an issue at f1.8 any longer. On D700 chromatic aberration was not an issue at all at f1.4. Great color reproduction and bokeh! No issues with focus shift.
Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
