Excerpt: Wanted a "normal" lens for my DX camera. Lens came with a soft cloth bag and lens hood and shot great indoor and outdoor pics. At 1.8 it's faster than my zoom and compares well to the 50 mm f 1.4 FX prime I also bought but is wider at DX format. Also has metal lens ring. It's now my "walk around" lens.
Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I received this lens as a birthday present, and have already had it out on a shoot. It worked great for individual portraiture work...got some beautiful, crisp shots! I went to school for photography and film production and now do portrait work and landscape art, but not full-time, so for my needs this is exactly what I was hoping for in a prime lens!
Excerpt: Right out of the box, I started taking photos of the vegetables in my kitchen as a test. I did not realize that fresh tomatoes actually have a little coating of peach-fuzz. This amazing lens can see things that my perfect vision cannot. Not sure if I want this lens used on me..... but it will make great portraits with that beautiful eyelash detail.
Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: The AF-S Nikkor 35mm f/1.8G DX has quickly become my go to lens when I just want to put a lens on and go. Outstanding optical quality has consistantly produced sharp pics with great color. Combine that with fast auto focus, and wonderful low light performance all wrapped in a sub $[$]lens? believe it. On my D7100 its range is similar to a 50mm on a full frame. It may not be built like the pro lenses but then again your not paying $1500 either.
Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh
Excerpt: this is a good lens for low light and for just taking candid snapshots. i use this lens when i'm just out and about taking shots. also good when i'm at family gatherings and just want to take snapshots in tricky lighting.
Excerpt: I have the 50mm f/1.8g and it by far is such a great lens. But I got to thinking if there would be any difference using a 35mm f/1.8g, the answer is "Yes" there is a big difference. Focal distance to your subject, great bokeh on both lens, but I think I like the 35mm more than I like the 50mm. I will use both, but I think I favor the 35mm. I'm really enjoying the performance of the 35mm.
Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
Excerpt: I decided to get back to basics and purchase a "normal" lens for my D90 body. The results couldn't have been more pleasing. The lens is light, quiet focusing and pretty fast all in an inexpensive package. The lack of zoom forces me to think about what I am actually trying to capture before firing the shutter. I am very pleased.
Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Ouiet
