Compact and lightweight, this very fast f/2 wide-angle lens is perfect for scenic and landscape photography as well as environmental portraits
From the Manufacturer
Lens-making is an art--Nikon artisans craft Nikkor optics from the finest materials, taking pride in adding their intellect and technique to bring the world's finest lenses to life. They push the leading edge of lens-making in their effort to provide the "glass" that makes the world's greatest pictures.
AF Nikkor lenses work with Nikon SLRs for optimal performance, even the very latest. The Nikon 35mm f2D AF Nikkor is a compact, lightweight wide-angle lens constructed with superb optical design for architecture, wedding, and landscape photography. It features 62-degree (44-degree with Nikon DX format) picture coverage with edge-to-edge sharpness. The perfect lens for the photographer on the go, the fast f2 maximum aperture makes this ideal for low light, hand-held shooting. It also weighs an exceptionally light 7.2 ounces and boasts a 0.85-foot close focusing distance.
Nikon Super Integrated Coating ensures exceptional performance
To enhance the performance of its optical lens elements, Nikon employs an exclusive multilayer lens coating that helps reduce ghost and flare to a negligible level. Nikon Super Integrated Coating achieves a number of objectives, including minimized reflection in the wider wavelength range and superior color balance and reproduction. Nikon Super Integrated Coating is especially effective for lenses with a large number of elements, like our Zoom-Nikkors. Also, Nikon's multilayer coating process is tailored to the design of each particular lens. The number of coatings applied to each lens element is carefully calculated to match the lens type and glass used, and also to assure the uniform color balance that characterizes Nikkor lenses. This results in lenses that meet much higher standards than the rest of the industry.
D-type and G-type Nikkors relay subject-to-camera distance information to AF Nikon camera bodies. This then makes possible advances like 3D Matrix Metering and 3D Multi-Sensor Balanced Fill-Flash. Note: D-type and G-type Nikkors provide distance information to the following cameras: Auto exposure; F6, F5, F100, F90X, F80, F75, F70, F65, F60, F55, F50, Pronea S, Pronea 600i, D2 series, D1 series, D100 and D70s/D70. Flash control; F6, F5, F100, F90X, F80, F75, F70, D2 series, D1 series, D100, and D70s/D70 cameras.

Top Customer Reviews
Photos taken with the older D-series lenses typically have a 3D look, better microcontrast, and better color rendition. The older lenses may have a bit more "reviewer's flaws"--things that are easily correctable and can often give character to the image like vignetting, chromatic aberration, and mild geometric distortion. As Nikon (and Canon and others) have produced increasingly plastic lenses they have degraded their lens designs to perform better in reviews.
It's a shame that fraudulent sites like DXOmark have come to dominate the opinions that amateur photographers have about lens quality. DXOmark doesn't publish its methods, doesn't give any real data with real units of measurement, and uses fictitious units of measurement (e.g. "perceptual megapixels"). It's flimflam that gives the appearance of authority and objectivity.
Ask yourself this: what lenses were used to take the stunning photographs in National Geographic over the last 40 years? In almost every case it was one of these (or similar Canon) designs made for photographers and not reviewers.
Finally, the newer G-series lenses have the focus motors built into the lens. Motors burn out. They will eventually fail. The D-series lenses are purely mechanical. No motor in the lens. Much more durable. The motor is in the camera, and most photographers will get a new body two or three times in 30 years. These lenses will still be working reliably. With a G series lens, the cost to replace the focus motor in the lens will be high enough that you might as well buy a new lens. The G series lenses are essentially disposable over the long term. There are some terrific new G series lenses like the 20mm f/1.8G that do surpass the D-series versions in every respect. But many of the D-series versions remain fantastic for real photography. The 85 1.8D, the 100 f/2D with defocus control, the 135 f/2D with defocus control, and the interstellar 180 f/2.8D that is also still in production for good reason.
This lens isn't for everyone however. If you have a DX (cropped) sensor camera you probably should get the 35mm f/1.8 AF-S DX lens. This lens is designed for the smaller digital sensors and provides a bit wider aperture. It's a great lens for people with cropped sensors and you won't get much out of the full-frame 35mm f/2 lens over the DX lens with a DX sensor. The 35mm f/2 lens is really ideal for people with full-frame DSLRs (FX) and 35mm film SLRs. The DX lens also is quieter focusing and has an internal focus motor, which some Nikon cameras need.
This lens may also overlap with many other lenses if you've already got a collection of lenses including other wide-angle primes and zoom lenses.
If you do get this lens also make sure that your camera has an internal focusing motor. Unlike many of the newer AF-S lenses, this lens does not have an in-lens focusing motor. This means many Nikon digital SLRs, particularly entry level models, can't auto-focus with this lens. You can still use the lens with manual focus. If your camera does have an internal focus motor, like most 35mm SLRs and higher-end DSLRs then you'll have no problem using this lens!
I'm not sure this lens is one that people absolutely 'need', but it's fun to use, decently priced, and has good results.
I bought this primarily for when I need to travel light, and was accepting the fact that it may not be as sharp as my other "premium" lens, but having tried it out in the last couple hours and pixel peeping on my mac, I don't feel that I will be sacrificing any sharpness with this lens. At least that is my opinion as a "non-professional" photographer.
The normal price for this lens given its sharpness, size, micro-contrast, color accuracy, should be closer to $1,000.

Useful for walking around shooting. Semi-wide angle on a FX camera.
Even more useful if you have a DX camera.Read more
