Excerpt: I purchased this lens to complement the basic 18-55 Nikon kit lens I have for my D-7000. I take a lot of portrait and child photos and wanted to exploit the Bokeh I could get with an f1.8 lnes. I have to say, the results are amazing!<br />First this lens is extremely light yet quite durable. The autofocus is what you'd expect from Nikon- fast, accurate and quiet.
Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
The 35mm 1.8 DX G gives good angle of view & is great in lowlight moments.

Summary: Purchased a Nikon D3200 with a 18-55 & 55-200 zoom. Both lenses are quality products, but was looking for a fastyer lighter lens to use indoors or for candid snapshots with a flash or in low light without a flash. The 35mm 1.8 DX G lens fits that role well. It give s good angle of view and works well in those low light opportunities.
Summary: So happy I bought this lens. I wanted to go with an f1.4 in the same model, but based on the reviews, decided that a 1.8 would suffice (and for $200, come on, how can you even go wrong?). I love this lens! It's my new go-to lens. My favorite part is that it has a SWM (silent wave motor), so I don't have to manually focus like I did with my former go-to. I couldn't be happier!
Summary: After only a week of having my D3200 I realized the low light limitations of the kit lens and after hours of research online I found the 35mm 1.8 as the most highly recommended option especially from Jared Polin who is awesome. I felt like replacing the kit lens with this was a huge step for me learning photography since I wasn't preoccupied with zooming in and out and focused on the composition instead.
Summary: It is my first DSLR camera and this lens you must have it. make the camera lighter and covers 80% of your needs. It is fast and great apperture for night and indoor shots. Also it is original from Nikon so you do not have to worry about performance and compatibility. Also the the filter is very important to protect the lenses, because accident does happen and it is easier to clean the filter than the lenses.
Excerpt: we take a lot of baby pictures of our cute baby girl and getting a lot of compliments that pictures look so professional. We've got Nikon D5200 before baby was born and now I use this lens all the time.
Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
Summary: I love this lens. I originally purchased it with my Nikon D7000. I have a wide selection of other lenses (70-200 f2.8, 18-35 f.3.5-4.5, 50mm f. 1.4) and so far it is my favorite when it comes to street photography. I tend to enjoy very up close and personal shots and this lens is perfect as long as you are not nervous about being very close to your subject. This lens also performs incredibly well in low light which is ideal for street photography.
