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...

Mount this lovely lens on any DX camera and you'll get exceptional sharpness, beautiful bokeh and excellent low light performance. Once again Nikon hit the spot, Shooting with D5500 and 35mm f/1.8G was my best ever photography experience, It was so good that my friends started changing their gear to this perfect match! Thank you Nikon!

    I used the lens for a portrait and product shoot. 35mm is a perfect length, every photographer should have one of these.

    Amazing little lens!!

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

    I just received this lens for my birthday, in addition to two zoom lenses I already have, and I wish I could use it all the time. The large aperture creates beautiful depth of field and bokeh, and the subjects are always super sharp. It's fantastic in low light. This will create stunning portraits. You need a 35mm or a 50mm in your camera bag.

    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.

    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
