Nikkor AF-S DX 35mm f/1.8G
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.
Excerpt: This compact wide aperture lens for DX compatible Nikon digital SLRs costs around £170 and provides a similar angle of view to a 50mm lens used on a 35mm camera and sports a silent focusing motor.
Summary: The Nikon 35 mm 1.8 is a very attractive, low-cost, compact, and lightweight lens. In combination with the Nikon D3200 , it yields high sharpness in the center. The Nikon D3200 corrected the jpg files for chromatic aberration (not adjustable) and distortion (adjustable). In terms of distortion and chromatic aberration, you will have to pay extra attention to the RAW files.
Pros: Cheap, compact and light, Fast lens with little or no flare or ghosting, High sharpness in the center, In combination with
Cons: Sharpness in the corners is less than in the center
