Compact, fast f/1.8 prime lens for DX-format cameras

Optimized for DX-format cameras, the compact, lightweight AF-S DX NIKKOR 35mm f/1.8G delivers the consistently stunning images you’d expect from a prime lens. Its fast f/1.8 maximum aperture is perfect for low-light shooting and creating softly blurred backgrounds; and its classic “normal” angle of view (approximating what we see with our eyes) makes it a great all-around lens.

Beautiful background blur

Isolate your subject for a dramatic effect

The secret to creating beautifully blurred backgrounds in your photos and videos is using a lens with a wide maximum aperture. The AF-S DX NIKKOR 35mm f/1.8G’s maximum aperture is f/1.8, which provides complete depth-of-field control for isolating your subject and creating stunning portraits.

Outstanding low-light performance

Shoot in a greater range of conditions

An f/1.8 maximum aperture isn’t just for creating blurred backgrounds—it’s also the key to exceptional low-light performance. With the AF-S DX NIKKOR 35mm f/1.8G, you’ll be able to shoot in more situations with only the available light—indoors or out, from morning until night.
Silent Wave Motor
Silent Wave Motor
AF-S NIKKOR lenses feature Nikon’s Silent Wave Motor, which represents a significant advance in AF lens technology.

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. July 30, 2010
SIMPLY AMAZING!!!!!! 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!!! October 1, 2014
A must have lens for the DX format camera 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. September 25, 2014
Incredible 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. August 11, 2014
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. July 10, 2014

I own a d7000. I know the difference between fx and dx formats and their lenses. My question is: Since my dx camera is capable of using an fx lens without any loss, which one should I use among these lenses if I'm looking for the best option among these three normal formats that would give me the best picture if:
1. Is used in dark environment [should be fast]
2. Is used to photograph portraits
3. Is used to photograph artwork [do any of these have vignette problem?]
The leses are:

1. AF-S DX NIKKOR 35mm f/1.8G
2. AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.4G
3. AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G

I am using right now a 16-85mm dx. It is a great lens, but no good to photograph in dark areas indoors, or to photograph artwork because it tilts the edges into more bulge shape. Also it is not fast indoors.
My last question: Can you tell me what’s the difference between 1.4G and 1.8G in lenses?

Respectfully,
Ben.

Answer: 
We would recommend the 35mmf/1.8G. The AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.4G would be more suitable if you do not want to go with the 35mm f1.8G. A minimum aperture of 1.4G is Wider than 1.8G which means that the F/1.4G will perform better in low lighting. There are no vignetting problems with the lenses.

Due to DX crop factor (smaller sensor) the 35 mm lens on a DX camera will give an effective field of view of a 50mm lens on a 35 mm camera. Nikon FX cameras donot have this crop factor(except in DX mode)

As I turn the lens ring (in manual focus) I can feel two diffrent points (kind of a "click"), one turning left and one turning right.

I was told that infinity is when I feel the "click" when turning right. However when I set the lens at that point it seems a little blurry to me. It seems more focused when I turn the ring back a little. How much should I turn back? (if so).
(Planning to take night pictures, hopefully the northern lights!). How do I set the infinity point in a night situaton?) Thank you!!

Answer: 
When I took pictures of the Northern Lights, I focused on a relatively bright star and that worked well. Just moving to infinity did not. A bit out of focus as you said. My next problem was not moving the focus because I was shaking from the cold. Of course, must have a tripod. A remote trigger helps as well.

Answer: 
Yes. The AF-S DX NIKKOR 35mm f/1.8G is fully compatible with the D5200.

'AF'- means Auto Focus
'S' means that the lens has a built in silent wave motor.
The silent wave motor in the lens enable Nikon DSLR's such as the D5200, D5100, D3200 cameras, which do not have built in Auto focus motors to Auto focus.
If your D5200 was purchased as a kit, it more than likely that the lens included in the kit is an AF-S lens.

Answer: 
The lens is not waterproof. Nikon recommends that you protect the lens and camera when shooting in the rain or extreme weather conditions.

Hey Folks! I just received this lens, along with the 85mm lens. Not sure how I am feeling about the 35mm. I take pics mostly of my own kiddies, but I would love to start my own photography business. Right now, it's my hobby. This lens is not really doing it for me. Any advice would be great! I'm using it with my D5000.

Answer: 
The lightweight AF-S DX NIKKOR 35mm f/1.8G delivers the consistently stunning images you’d expect from a prime lens. Its fast f/1.8 maximum aperture is perfect for low-light shooting and creating softly blurred backgrounds. The AF-S DX NIKKOR 35mm f/1.8G’s maximum aperture is f/1.8, which provides complete depth-of-field control for isolating your subject and creating stunning portraits. An f/1.8 maximum aperture isn’t just for creating blurred backgrounds—it’s also the key to exceptional low-light performance. AF-S NIKKOR lenses feature Nikon’s Silent Wave Motor, which represents a significant advance in AF lens technology. MTF charts and sample pictures can be found on the product page of the lens. For choosing a lens for the D5000, please see: https://support.nikonusa.com/app/an...

I have the lens and it doesn't seem to focus when I have the AE-L button set to AF-ON. I have the D5100 model. Is this normal or a defect?

Answer: 
Check your custom settings "C1" it is probably in the on position. This automatically klocks the focus when you half depress the shutter release. Switch it to off if you want to cancel.
