AF-S DX NIKKOR 35mm f/1.8G
A MUST for every DX shooter
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.

Excellent general purpose lens.
I use the 35 mm f1.8 prime lens along with my 18-55 Kit lens and 55-200 tele-zoom lens. Light weight camera bag but 28 mm up to 300 mm range (D3100 DSLR) for nature and travel pictures. Recommended for all.

AMAZING FOR EVERY TYPE OF SHOOTER!
From beginners to the very experienced, this lens produces great sharp and bright images on DX Camersa such as my D3100 and FX such as my D800. All around lesns, amazing price, crazy light. Nice quality plastic.

Great All-Purpose Lens
I love this lens! It has good build quality and the focal length is perfect for shooting walk around photography without any distortion. Images are super-sharp and it adds just the right amount of weight to my D7100 camera. Low-light photography is excellent! I highly recommended trying one out!

Outstanding and Highly Cost Effective
Truly exceptional sharpness and contrast. I'm a long time Nikon user and adding this fixed focal length lens to the stable of contemporary zooms has been a great choice. Terrific in low light candids. Also outstanding in landscape and architectural shooting with color, sharpness, contrast and minimal distortion unexpected at this price. I'm personally enjoying revisiting the earlier days when composition was done with a fixed focal length prime, of course then on a rangefinder 35 mm camera. Interesting how going back to basics sharpens skills.
