  • Excerpt: Handling and Features Performance Verdict Specification This brand new compact wide angle lens from Nikon costs around £470 and sports a bright f/1.8 maximum aperture and silent, internal focusing with full time manual focus override. Is it good enough to be considered as a cheaper alternative to Nikon's highly regarded 35mm f/1.4G lens? We'll investigate in this review.

Nikkor AF-S DX 35mm f/1.8G

Camera Labs
1 June 2010
  • Summary: In fact before our usual analysis, we'll cut right to the chase and say the DX 35mm f/1.8G is as close to a no-brainer for owners of Nikon DX-format DSLRs as we've ever tested. It delivers a step-up in quality over typical kit zooms, not to mention gathering loads more light for dim conditions or blurred backgrounds. It will also autofocus on any Nikon body, including the budget models, and carries a compelling price tag. Suffice it to say it comes highly recommended.
  • Pros: Crisp, detailed, well-corrected images., Bright f/1.8 focal ratio ideal for low light work., Autofocuses on all Nikon DSLRs., Light weight, compact size and low price.
  • Cons: Some coloured fringing in uncorrected images., No focus distance window., Slightly coarse-feel to the manual focusing ring., Not corrected for full-frame FX bodies.

Expert Review

DP Review

  • Conclusion: The AF-S Nikkor 35mm F1.8G DX is a lens which certainly caused a degree of dismay on its release, with many Nikon fans disappointed by the decision to make it compatible with the DX format only. However the main benefit of that decision is plain for all to see - even at its introductory price the lens costs rather less than the venerable AF-Nikkor 35mm F2.0D, despite the addition of an AF-S motor to allow autofocusing on Nikon's entry-level D40 / D40X / D60 bodies.
  • Pros: Excellent image quality when stopped down just a little, Fast and accurate autofocus with full-time manual override, Generally attractive rendition of out-of-focus regions ('bokeh'), Resistant to flare, Low price
  • Cons: Slightly soft and low in contrast wide open, Lateral chromatic aberration somewhat higher than traditional 50mm 'standard' primes, Prone to purple fringing and bokeh chromatic aberration, most visible at large apertures

  • Excerpt: While I hope to create a full Nikon 35mm f/1.8G AF-S DX Lens evaluation, my first priority is to include results from this lens in the lens comparison tools. This page currently exists because it is required by the database and content management systems for the posting of those standard test results.

Nikon AF-S DX 35mm f/1.8G

  • Excerpt: The first DX Nikkor with the classic advantages of a high-speed "normal" lens ($220, street), this 52mm full-frame equivalent is also the fastest DX and widest nonfisheye digital-only Nikkor prime. It has a single aspheric element, Nikon's super-quiet SWM autofocus motor, and rounded aperture blades for smoothly defocused image areas at all apertures.
