With its rounded seven-blade diaphragm opening, out-of-focus elements appear more natural. When mounted on a DX-format SLR, the picture angle is the 35mm equivalent focal length of 50mm.what's in the box: Nikon AF-S Nikkor 35mm f/1.8G DX Lens, HB-46 Bayonet Lens Hood for AF-S DX NIKKOR 35mm f/1.8G, 52mm Snap-On Lens Cap, LF-1 Rear Lens Cap for F Mount Lenses, CL-0913 Soft Lens Case and 5-Year Warranty (1-Year International + 4-Year USA Extension).

From the Manufacturer


With a compact, lightweight design, the AF-S DX NIKKOR 35mm f/1.8G provides the high reproduction capability and picture quality for which Nikkor lenses are renowned at an affordable price. The ring type SWM offers quiet AF operation. Although all lens groups shift during focusing, the front element and filter mount do not rotate and the barrel length does not change, which is useful when using filter mounted SB-R200 Wireless Remote Speedlight units.

5.0 out of 5 stars 35mm has set me free!
By PTpab on March 31, 2017
I am a novice photographer and have been using a variety of lenses. From an older (non VR) 70-300 telephoto to a 10.5mm fisheye. Over the past three years I have also used the "nifty 50" Nikkor 50mm 1.8D. This lens has been amazing for portraits, some casual shooting, and the occasional indoor kid's sporting events. One problem I came across time and time again, because I shoot on a cropped sensor camera (D90), is that the 50mm 1.8D (taking into consideration the 1.5x crop factor) actually shoots more like a 75mm equivalent. Time and time again I would find myself only being able to keep one subject in frame, or wishing I had more room behind me to back up farther in order to get more in the frame. Often times I would switch lenses and use an older kit lens (18-70mm 3.5ED) in order to shoot wider, but that of course came at the cost of loss of sharpness and the dramatic depth of field effect that can be achieved with prime lenses like the 50mm 1.8D.

Also, a professional photographer friend of mine was using a 50mm on her Canon 5D Mark III and after looking at the pictures I wondered how she was able to fit so much into the frame while not having to back away dramatically. This was before I knew anything about crop sensor cameras, crop factors, full frame cameras, etc. The fact is that a 50mm lens on a full frame camera and the same lens on a crop sensor camera do not shoot the same way.

After some reading and investigating, I decided to pull the trigger and purchase this 35mm 1.8G lens. I got it, popped on the bayonet style lens good and started shooting. On a cropped sensor camera like the D90 (as well as the newer D7200, D7000, D3300, D3200, D5500, etc.) this lens shoots (with the 1.5x crop factor multiplier) works close to a 53mm equivalent. The results were immediate, I shoot in close quarters with kids, pets, bands and the ability to fit more in the frame was - liberating. I did not feel hampered by what I could or could not fit into the frame.

Pros:
- Feels well built
- Comes packaged with carrying case, good cap, bayonet style lens hood
- Can fit more in the frame
- Fast
- Captures crisp images with lots of detail
- Great in low light, maybe even better than the now older 50mm 1.8D (which by the way does not autofocus unless you have a camera with a focus motor built in)
- If I had a camera that did not have a focus motor built in, no problem, this lens has a focus motor built into it
- Focusing is SILENT - unlike the 50mm 1.8D, which hunts for focus and is noisy as hell
- Manual focus override: a switch on the side of the lens allows you to either manually focus the lens, or to allow for M/A, manual and autofocus. This comes in handy if you want to fine tune your focusing or when shooting video and do not want to rely on the focus motors to handle how and what you focus on as you pan through a scene

Cons:
- The bokeh on the 35mm does not really compare to what I've been used to from the 50mm 1.8D. The Bokeh (quality of blurriness in the background when shooting wide open) simply does not look as good, but this is a relatively minor issue. That said, I may use this lens more as a street photo / on the go / all around lens and keep the 50mm 1.8D for portrait work or product shots exclusively
- There is some barrel distortion with this lens (which is when there is slight curve to the image from the center point to all edges) the effect is very slight and can very easily be corrected in photo editing software

Overall, I am very pleased with my purchase. The lens came packaged very well, arrived exactly on time and in perfect condition. The images I have attached compare the older 50mm 1.8D alongside this lens, as well as the test shots. The shots are to show how much can fit in the frame using the 50mm lens (on a cropped sensor camera) in comparison to this 35mm 1.8G. I love the 50mm lens, I really do, but I needed more versatility and this 35mm lens gives me just that, the freedom to have a quasi-portrait lens as well as a great, fast, and sharp all around shooter. I look forward to what I will be able to do with this lens as I continue to hone my skills as a photographer.

Comparison images: If the object looks closer I took it with the 50mm lens. Same conditions used for every photo.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love! Great for moms!
By Hilary on October 27, 2016
I am a super beginner photographer (wouldn't even call myself that, just a new mama with a camera) with a Nikon D3300. I've had the camera for almost a year and have been disappointed my the photos I was taking (been using the lens kit that came with my camera). I finally decided after doing some reading, that I might benefit from a new lens. I decided on the 35mm instead of the 50mm because I read that the 50 can be hard to use inside of a small house and that the 35 might be a little more versatile, if you can only get one lens. I put the lens on my camera last night, and NOW I AM FINALLY GETTING THE PICTURES I DREAMT OF. The camera makes beautiful bokeh and takes super fast photos, even in low light! I am super impressed with this lens and definitely recommend if you are a mom trying to take up your photos a few notches. As an aside, I stumbled upon the blog "Click It Up A Notch." And read some of their basic tutorials and have learned so much. Hope this helps you make your decision.
Update: I added a picture that I took on my second day of using the lens. Before I got this lens I had essentially stopped using my DSLR because the lens kit was so slow that I was always miss his smile.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent lens
By wilddog on October 18, 2016
I have a Nikon D7000 and my wife has a D5100. I have a 50mm prime lens that offers great shots, but this 35mm lens offers AWESOME shots! I love this lens. Great color, ease of use, wider aperture. Built well. This is the only lens I have been carrying around along with a telephoto lens. You cannot go wrong for the price. You can let the camera focus for you or just turn the lens and manually focus. I allow the camera to do it. The lens doesn't move when focusing, only the focus ring. Great shots in low light.

4.0 out of 5 stars Kritik auf hohem Niveau - insgesamt: Herausragendes Objektiv / Preis-Leistungs-Tipp
Reviewed in Germany on November 23, 2018
Allgemeine Information:

Da das Objektiv in seiner Bezeichnung die Angabe „DX“ trägt, ist die Festbrennweite entsprechend für die DX Serie von Nikon (APSC-Sensor) konstruiert worden. Auf dem DX System entsprechen die 35mm etwa einer 50mm Normalbrennweite (Vollformatäquivalent). Damit kommt der Blickwinkel dem des menschlichen Auges nahe und findet somit in vielen Bereichen Anwendung.
Auf DSLR im FX Format kann das Objektiv zwar auch verwendet werden, dann wird der Sensor allerdings nicht voll ausgeleuchtet und sollte auf der Kamera ein Crop-Modus aktiviert werden. Damit hat man selbstverständlich nicht mehr die Sensorgröße des Vollformats, wer das Objektiv zum Zeitpunkt des Umstiegs auf FX bereits besitzt, kann es auf diese Art gut weiterverwenden.

Randbemerkung:
Während meiner Recherche vor dem eigenen Kauf habe ich in einem Testbericht die Aussage gefunden, dass die Ausleuchtung des Objektivs vergleichsweise groß ist und es somit am Vollformat statt zu schwarzen Rändern „nur“ zu stärkerer Vignettierung kommt. Somit kann man auf dem Vollformat oder z.B. nur mit Crop 1.2 arbeiten statt 1.5 (DX). Da ich dies selbst noch nicht ausprobieren konnte (bisher nicht im Besitz einer FX Kamera) bitte nur mit Vorsicht annehmen!
*********

Verarbeitung / Haptik / Zubehör: (4 Sterne)

Das Objektiv ist aus Kunststoff gefertigt, fühlt sich dafür aber dennoch wertig an. Nichts klappert oder hat spürbar spiel. Abgesehen von dem Kunststoff kommt das Objektiv mit Metallbajonett samt Dichtlippe, wodurch ein Spritzwasserschutz gegeben ist. Zudem ist das Filtergewinde aus Metall gefertigt. Somit braucht man bei der Verwendung von Filtern keine Angst zu haben das Gewinde des Objektivs zu beschädigen. Insgesamt ist die Verarbeitung auf hohem Niveau. Einziger Kritikpunkt ist für mich der Fokusring, welcher sich zwar fein steuern lässt aber einen zu billigen Eindruck macht und eine schleifende Akustik abgibt. Angesichts des Preises und der restlichen Qualität für mich kein entscheidendes Kriterium, aber an dieser Stelle könnte nachgebessert werden.
Neben dem Objektiv selbst liegt eine Gegenlichtblende, Objektivdeckel (vorne + hinten) und ein Stoffbeutel zum Schutz bei.
*********

Bildqualität / Funktionalität: (4 Sterne)

Das wichtigste bei der Optik ist aber natürlich die Bildqualität und die Funktionalität. Hier erhält man eine lichtstarke Festbrennweite mit – auf den Preis bezogen – herausragender optischer Leistung. Dem günstigen Preis gegenüber, stehen allerdings vorhandene Aberrationen, leichte Verzeichnung, offenblendig eine etwas weichere Abbildungsschärfe und ein fehlender Bildstabilisator.

Mit einer Offenblende von F1.8 bei 35mm (respektive ~50mm Vollformatäquivalent) braucht man in den meisten Fällen ohnehin keinen Bildstabilisator oder man arbeitet in dem Fall einer längeren Belichtung ohnehin mit Stativ. Ich persönlich vermisse den Bildstabilisator nicht, man sollte dem bei Wahl der Belichtungszeit aber bewusst sein. Ein nice-to-have ist es sicherlich, wäre dann aber mit einem höheren Preis verbunden und daher aus meiner Sicht uninteressant. Eine Fokusskala, wie z.B. von dem 50mm F1.8G bekannt, wäre noch schön zu haben. Allerdings verwende ich persönlich diese auch nur zur Grobeinstellung auf unendlich.

Wer viel Architektur fotografiert wird damit zu tun haben, für andere Anwendungen weniger relevant: Verzeichnung.
Ich halte die Verzeichnung noch für akzeptabel, da diese mit der kamerainternen Korrektur/Kameraprofilen am Computer und teils zusätzlich Bildbearbeitung vollständig beseitigt werden kann. Bei einer Festbrennweite in diesem Brennweitenbereich würde ich persönlich eine geringere Verzeichnung erwarten. In Bereichen wie Landschaftsfotografie oder Portrait wird die Verzeichnung nicht weiter auffallen. (3 Sterne)
Chromatische Aberrationen treten an Rändern bei starken Kontrasten auf, sind aber im Allgemeinen erst bei hohem Vergrößerungsfaktor erkennbar. (4 Sterne)
------

Schärfe, Bokeh und Lichtstärke (5 Sterne)

Dieser Bereich hat aufgrund seiner Bedeutung für mich einen eigenen Abschnitt verdient.
Die Schärfe der Linse ist insgesamt wirklich sehr gut. Bei Offenblende noch etwas weicher erhält man etwas abgeblendet eine sehr hohe Schärfe bis ins Detail und kontrastreiche Abbildungen. Im Vergleich ist hier das 50mm F1.8G aber noch etwas knackiger. Der Autofokus – sollte bei JEDEM Objektiv individuell überprüft werden - sitzt in meinem Fall perfekt und schnell. Durch die Offenblende von F1.8 kann der Schärfebereich fein gesteuert und Objekte oder Personen schön freigestellt werden. Hier kommt dann entsprechend auch die Bedeutung des Bokeh ins Spiel. Dieses gefällt mir persönlich für ein Objektiv in dieser Preisklasse sehr gut. Das Bokeh ist schön weich und angenehm ruhig. Bei Offenblende werden Lichtkreise trotz der nur 7 Blenden-Lamellen schön dargestellt und bilden einen feinen Übergang zum restlichen Hintergrund. Gerade bei Portraits gehe ich oft auf F2.8 um einen größeren Schärfebereich und allgemein eine höhere Schärfe zu erhalten, bei gleichzeitig noch schönem Bokeh. Je weiter man abblendet nimmt wie üblich die Qualität des Bokehs auch ab. Das Optimum hängt von einigen Faktoren und insbesondere dem persönlichen Geschmack ab. (5 Sterne)
Mit einer Lichtstärke von F1.8 und bereits guter optischer Qualität bei dieser Blende eignet sich das Objektiv hervorragend für die Fotografie innerhalb von weniger gut beleuchteten Räumen, auf Veranstaltungen und Allgemein für den Bereich „Available Light“. Für letzteres gerade in Kombination mit dem Bokeh ein sehr angenehmes Objektiv. (5 Sterne)

Zur Einschätzung des Bokehs im Bereich Available Light habe ich 3 Bilder beigefügt. Diese Zielen rein auf das Bokeh ab und nicht auf die Schärfe des Objektivs, da sich diese meiner Meinung nach mit den Abbildungen bei Amazon schlecht darstellen lässt. Anmerken möchte ich, dass es sich nicht um perfekt kreisförmige Lichtquellen handelt, wodurch je nach Einfallwinkel das Bokeh auch keine runden Kreise abbilden kann. Dargestellt sind F1.8, f2.8 und F5. Deutlich zu erkennen ist die Entstehung von Sternen bei den direkten Lichtquellen für F5. Bei F1.8 und F2.8 hat man noch eine schöne kreisförmige Struktur der Lichter. Zudem soll dies keine Referenz meiner Fotografie bzw. Hauptverwendung dieser Linse sein.
*********

Alles in Allem für mich und meinen Anwendungsfall ein absolut herausragendes Objektiv mit äußerst gutem Preis/Leistungsverhältnis. Für mich eine Brennweite, die jeder besitzen sollte und zumindest die meisten der Leser hier werden unbesorgt zuschlagen können. Aufgrund von Abweichungen bei der Herstellung der Objektive, sollten insbesondere im Hinblick auf den Autofokus eigene Tests durchgeführt werden und – falls dieser nicht gut sitzt – das Objektiv umgetauscht werden. Ich habe nun 2 dieser Objektive dahingehend getestet und bei beiden war der Autofokus treffsicher und nicht verschoben. Anhand dieser kleinen (und damit nicht repräsentativen) Stichprobe scheint Nikon hier auch gute Arbeit zu leisten.
Insgesamt vergebe ich 4 Sterne, wobei die Kritik wirklich auf hohem Niveau und Preis/Leistung absolut unschlagbar ist! Die Haptik des Fokusrings, sowie die vorhandene Verzeichnung bei einer Festbrennweite mit dieser Brennweite tragen letzten Endes die Verantwortung für den Punktabzug. Die optische Leistung im Hinblick auf Schärfe und Bokeh rechtfertigt auch 5 Sterne.

Ich möchte darauf hinweisen, dass die Beurteilung auf meine persönliche Erfahrung und den bisher gemachten Aufnahmen (innerhalb der letzten 6 Monate) beruhen. Demnach sind es Eindrücke aus dem realen Einsatz und keine Laborergebnisse. Außerdem fließt der Preis immer in die Bewertung mit ein. Teuer ist definitiv nicht immer besser, aber insbesondere bei der Verarbeitung erwartet man von einem 1000€ Objektiv einfach mehr als von einem < 200€.
-------------------

+++ Ich lege großen Wert auf die Meinung anderer Kunden und freue mich, wenn ich mit meinen Erfahrungen bei einer Entscheidung helfen kann. Daher nehme ich mir viel Zeit für eine ehrliche, umfassende und hoffentlich hilfreiche Alltags-Rezension. +++

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good for the price, great for a beginner
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on August 15, 2016
I'm just beginning and this is my first lens (other than the kit 18-55mm lens). I bought it because it's the cheapest prime lens available and many experienced people recommend it. I tried it in the streets, and I noticed that it is not really meant to be used to take pictures of entire buildings (churches,...), since it is difficult to get everything in the frame. It works better for random pictures of people, signs, flowers, details of buildings, cars, food, dogs and bigger animals, children... It is really good for portraits, the large aperture gives a good control over the depth of field. I haven't really tried low-light photography yet, but I expect it to be quite good in those situations.
A lens hood and a cool leathery pouch are included, which is nice. The lens hood is very useful for protection, just leave it on there all the time. If you need to store the camera in a bag, you can put the hood the other way around to save space.
Given the price compared to other lenses, I'd say it's a good investment. It's also good for a beginner like me, because it really helps me understand and play with ISO, aperture and shutter speed to change the result. It also forces you to think about the composition, because everything has to fit and it's sometimes good to remove the unnecessary things from the frame. I'm still not even remotely good, but it's definitely helping me to get better at photography.

Ho acquistato questo obbiettivo per la mia d3400, ed è stato subito amore. L’apertura massima di 1.8 permette di ottenere foto luminosissime e un effetto sfuocato formidabile; inoltre, la lunghezza focale fissa, ti permette di scoprire un mondo nuovo per quanto riguarda le sensazioni di scatto. Arrivato con 3 gg di anticipo, in confezione è presente il paraluce e il sacchetto per il trasporto. Obbiettivo fantastico. Consigliatissimo.
