The Nikon 35mm f/1.8G ED AF-S is a budget-friendly, moderately wide-angle lens designed for Nikon FX and DX DSLRs. Key features include:
Excellent for portraiture and low-light shooting
Fast, nearly silent autofocus
FX and DX compatible
Semi-Wide Prime. The 35mm focal length is a popular choice for just about any type of photography. It’s used often for portraiture, landscape, and street photography. While it was designed with full-frame FX cameras in mind, it also serves as a great normal-range lens on crop-sensor DX cameras equivalent to 52.5mm
Fast Aperture. The f/1.8 aperture allows a high degree of subject/background isolation desired for portraiture. It also enables the lens to be very useful for low-light shooting.
Silent Wave Autofocus Motor. The Silent Wave Motor provides fast, nearly silent performance. The rear focusing design plays well with filters, as the barrel does not extend or rotate. For quick manual focus adjustment, the lens offers full-time manual focus capabilities.
High-Quality Optics. There’s one extra-low dispersion glass element for increased contrast and sharpness, and an aspherical element that minimizes spherical aberration and distortion.
