I've used this product for quite a time. At first glance, the fit and finish looks good, light, easy to handle. The SWM is a great addition for users of all entry level camera bodies, AF speed is acceptable and MF override is possible. Image quality wise, TREMEDOUS, it goes beyond my expectation even at widest aperture (though contrast dropped just a little), sharpness is great at the center, the corner is not bad, then everywhere looked tack-sharp just around F2.8 - 4. Background blur is a little harsh wide-opened and becomes most pleasing around F2.8 All in all, if you're a DX shooter, go to buy this lens now, I know you'll love this just like me.

This is a very sharp lens with crisp contrast. The colors are snappy and the color cast is neutral. The area of caution for me is the bokeh. If you want this lens for general picture making and/or available light-type photography, it's a good choice. I got it because I needed a lens that I could use at large apertures for full-length to waist up portraiture. It has a good angle of view on my D300s, but the bokeh is not smooth. It's passable with simple backgrounds, but if there is anything visually complex in the distance it doesn't smooth out. Instead, you get these weird patterns going on that are only a little less distracting than if I stopped the lens down. I've tried everything from wide open down to f/4 and nothing really looks very good. I understand there are limits with shorter focal length lenses, but I thought Nikon might give us something more here. But hey, it's a very low priced lens, so...

Beginners dream

By 

from NC

Comments about Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 35mm f1.8G Lens:

I somewhat recently took up photography and was using an 18 - 50mm kit lens. I'd always seen these sort of magazine quality images with perfect contrast and creamy bokeh, and I could nail the composition of my photos but it still wouldn't ever look quite as good. This lens fixed that. It's incredibly sharp, but what's more is that colors pop like crazy on my photos! I got it a few days ago and I can already tell a huge difference with my photography. As an amateur, I'm definitely looking to learn more about photography. This lens will help me in that it is a fixed lens with no zoom, and so forces me to think more about framing the subject and the angle instead of just lazily zooming in or out. My only complaint about this lens is that it somehow has made my camera louder, specifically focusing and shooting. But it's not a big deal. All in all, I recommend this lens to anyone learning photography or looking for an inexpensive, professional looking lens.

Comments about Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 35mm f1.8G Lens:

This lens is truly one of the best purchases I've ever made. I use it every single day, and it works for so many kinds of photography. It is perfect for portraits, but also landscapes and scenery. I love this lens so much and don't think I could find a better "everyday" lens if I tried. If you're considering this lens, go ahead and get it, you will NOT be disappointed.

Nice image quality, but just a little slower than I expected.

By 

from Ohio, USA

Comments about Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 35mm f1.8G Lens:

Lens takes very nice crispy photos. I use it on my D7100. Nice bokeh it's a 1.8! For moving objects like a dog ,the focusing is a little slow. I like the lens a lot aside from that. It's light and compact takes awesome photos.

Amazing for journalism photography

By 

from Round Rock, TX, USA

Comments about Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 35mm f1.8G Lens:

I'm one of the photographers in my school's yearbook program. This lens has been amazing every step of the way. -First off, it is extremely lightweight which is awesome because I can focus on photography instead of struggling with camera shake like my friends who use the school's huge canon zoom lenses -Focus is very fast when in viewfinder mode. -Photos are tack sharp -Obviously, it's very fast shutter speed due to aperture options -However, there is a slight purple/magenta chromatic aberration in some pictures. -very versatile, from portraits to basketball games -cheap lens but still very good quality photos

        Excellent, Small, Low Light, and Sharp Every Day Lens

        By 

        from San Diego, California

        Comments about Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 35mm f1.8G Lens:

        This DX 35mm f/1.8 lens is an excellent value. Its resolution rivals that of FX lenses three times the cost. The image below was taken with a Nikon D40 camera body at a shutter speed of 1/125 of s second, an aperture of f/1.8, an ISO of 560, Auto White Balance, and Matrix Metering.

        SIMPLY AMAZING!!!!!!

        Comments about Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 35mm f1.8G Lens:

        Although this lens is a prime lens, it is very versatile ! If you are looking for a lens that is compact and can offer a little of everything this is the lens for you. It works beautifully as a macro lens capturing small details. But is tack sharp at longer focal lengths. This is one of my new favorites! I think for the price you really can't go wrong. This is my 5th lens I have purchased from Nikon and its nothing short of amazing!!!

        A must have lens for the DX format camera

        By 

        from Kansas, USA

        Comments about Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 35mm f1.8G Lens:

        If you have a DX format camera and do not have this lens you are missing out. Everything about this lens is fantastic. It is in my opinion the best value lens on the market as far as price vs performance goes. This lens is on my camera 90% of the time. It is my go to lens for portraits, street, candid and all around people photography. If you want to take your photography up a few notches from the kit lens you can not do any better for the money than this lens.

        Nikon could Make It More Better

        By 

        from Undisclosed

        Comments about Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 35mm f1.8G Lens:

        I am using this lens from last 15 months. Initially I was happy with this lens when I bought my first DSLR because it was really sharp and having wide aperture f/1.8 . But after having some experiences about different aspects of quality photo e.g. distortion, chromatic aberration etc. of this lens started to disappoint me. This lens creates quite barrel distortion that I hate to see in the photo. Even 18-55mm kit lens can produce distortion free photo at 35mm. And this lens creates high chromatic aberration which I don’t like to have in the photo. On the other hand 50mm f/1.8G is better lens from every aspect. Now I have 50mm f/1.8G and I want to sell 35mm f/1.8 lens.

        Incredible lens!

        By 

        from NH

        Comments about Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 35mm f1.8G Lens:

        I purchased this glass for use with my [new] Nikon D7100, and I was absolutely thrilled with the shots I achieved! It's lightweight, inexpensive, and really fun to use, actually. It's really great when you are shooting in low-light situations. I am enthralled by this lens; the magnificent clarity, the amazingly smooth bokeh, the astounding depth of field, and the solid feel and flawless performance. I would recommend this to any photographer; the beginner, the enthusiast, and the professional.
