I’ve actually contemplated for quite some time now to buy a new lens, and as I have praised this lens many times before it was no surprise that the Nikon 35mm 1.8G DX would be my top for a prime lens along side my trusty 50mm f1.8. This will not be a thorough review of the lens but just a short test run with the lens as I have yet had the time to full test the lens to its fullest potential.
So far its been great shooting with a prime lens again, as essentially with a 35mm on cropped sensor is actually 52mm focal length if it was a full frame camera. From the very brief time I’ve had with the lens I can positively say that lens gives excellent image quality for each shot, it is a value for money lens as it does not cost an arm of leg, it’s fast with an aperture of f1.8 and has somewhat resistance to flaring.
On the negative side of the spectrum, the lens does not produce the best Bokehlicious images, but I have to say the images are very sharp indeed. Also there has been reports of chromatic aberration and colour fringing at large apertures. Despite it’s negative aspects, I would still give this lens a two thumbs up.
