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.

What a nifty lens! I think I have a new favorite lens.....First and foremost, the price point for this lens is reasonably inexpensive, especially being a Nikon product. It is worth every penny. The pictures this lens produces are crisp and colorful. Portraits turn out beautifully and close-ups are sharp. This lens is easy to use regardless of your level of experience. May 28, 2011
LOVE Paired this lens up with my d40. Excellent, crisp, amazing pics in low light! Love it! Highly recommend it!! May 23, 2011
Superb lens The 35mm f/1.8G Nikkor lens is a great lens for individuals who want to take great crisp pictures. It is an affordable starter lens for street photography. May 23, 2011
Excellent lens for DX cameras I've had this lens for nearly 6 months now and I love it. This is a great low light lens. I can take shots indoors without flash very easily. The wide aperature also allows me to blur the background in a very pleasing way. The lens is very sharp. Sharper then the 55-105mm kit lens on the D90. There is slight distortion around the edges of the frame, but that is not a big deal to me. Its not enough to notice unless shooting very rectangular objects. This lens a great lens at a great price. Every DX owner should have this lens. May 19, 2011
Great lens, great price If you are looking for a good wide aperture lens, but don't have a lot of money to spend, this lens is a great option. It doesn't have some of the nice features like VR and ED glass, but for $200, it's a great way to get a wide aperture lens. The ability to blur the background has really improved a lot of my images already. May 18, 2011
Sharp and excellent images... very good one to have... May 18, 2011
Excellent lens Great all around lens. Take beautiful portraits. Love the bokeh and great in low light. May 11, 2011
My new lens I received this lens for my birthday. It takes beautiful portraits and close-ups. Great lens. May 8, 2011
Most used lens on my D3100 Best one I have. Sharp, high resolution, low light (f1.8) capability, manual override of auto focus, no movement of front lens, silent focus. Like a eye of a photographer. You can move around unnoticed with a light, silent ordinary camera which faithfully recording what you see and recording the way you want. My most used lens. I will confess though that my previous favorite was my Minolta 50mm/1.7 with Maxxum 3Xi although Nikon D3100 with this 35mm/1.7 is much more silent and DSLR increased the low light capability much more. May 4, 2011
Clear & Sharp You don't have to spend fist full of dollars to get a lens that is fast, quiet, sharp and clear. This 35mm lens will out perform any other competitor's 35mm. It will be even harder to find once people realize its performance. April 20, 2011
Sharp as a tack and a steal at the price! This lens is incredible! For a ridiculously low price you get a super sharp lens that reliably produces excellent images even in low light! This lens is on my D90 camera 90% of the time. If you own a DX camera, you need to add this wonderful lens to your camera bag! April 19, 2011
Don't leave without this lens in your kit. Great lens for overall photography! Typically what is attached for most outings. Great for low-lighting, nature, and general portraiture. Definitely recommended!! April 18, 2011
A must have! I added this lens to the 18-200mm VR II that I use. While I use the zoom lens for travel and outdoor photos I wanted a lens that was faster for indoor and portrait. In using this 35mm 1.8 with my D7000 I rarely have to use a flash. For $200 this is a steal and a must have for every DX user. April 17, 2011
great lens this is another great lens that will give you great results for all types of photography especially portraits, but this lens is listed in the wide angle category I think this is a mistake because it's not a wide angle lens so as long as your not expecting a wide angle lens when you buy this one you'll be very pleased, if you want a wide angle then you'll have to buy a different lens April 17, 2011
Remember when Normal was standard? My first real lens of choice was a top brand 50mm 1.4 on an early good auto-metered slr. If I was smart my shots were sharp. Over the years I was bewitched by the options provided by a range of zoom lens. Today, with this Nikkor 35 mm f1.8 on my D300S I have rediscovered the pleasure and control obtainable with a really good normal lens. Now this is the lens always on my camera and the big zoom only comes out when truly needed. April 17, 2011
An absolute Best Buy When I decided to add a prime lens to my new D7000 purchase I wanted a fast lens that would not exceed my budget. The 35mm 1/8 is the perfect additional lens aquisition. This lens is the world's best buy for under $200. I used it 3 weeks ago at the wedding of my best friends son. Great photographs. I took 200 pictures and believe at least 100 of them are of professional quality. I have shared the photos with many members of the family and I look like a pro. I was driving up a country highway last week and pulled over to capture an incredable sunrise. I cannot believe the quality. Anyone with $200 to spare must but this lens. You will never regret the purchase. April 17, 2011
Awesome lens I have been absolutely in love with this lens. It's simple, clear and easy to use. The f/1.8 feature does wonders for shooting live music shots in dim lighting. It's light to carry and has replaced my standard f/5.4 lens. It's been a lot fun to use. April 17, 2011
Mandatory lens for your camera bag! The most perfect portrait lens at an affordable price for all users of any experience level! Always a great shot, light weight and well built. Highly recommended April 16, 2011
great for low light i love the lens, for indoor every day shooting this lens give my enough ability to shoot the low lighting situations. April 16, 2011
Favorite DX Lens This is a Go To lens for me when shooting photos of people. It's sharp, compact, and beats any other slow lens I own! April 15, 2011
Useful I bought the 35mm f/1.8G lens as a "normal" lens for my D-90. This is a very easy lens to just walk around with. It is light in weight and fast enough to provide good DOF. Sharpness is very good. Emphasis seems to be moving away from primes in today's variety of zoom lenses. The 35mm f/1.8 makes a great addition to any setup. April 15, 2011
Great lens An excellent addition to a DX shooters bag. Does what you expect. Gets out of the way and lets you shoot. April 15, 2011
A basic lens, required by every serious photog. The lens is intended to fit in my basic kit for portraiture and some close-up animal shots in some low-light views. With limited use, I am pleased with the initial results. I will feel better about it as greater use unfolds. The price is right and the quality meets my needs. April 15, 2011
Perfect Works exactly as expected. Very well made. Feels solid. I like the auto/manual feature. Definitely a recommended buy. I use it all the time. April 15, 2011
Great Buy! I bought this lens in preparation of being a father and getting ready to take lots of baby pictures. It makes shooting possible indoors and creates very nice and soft images. I have taken some great pictures of my son with it and impressed lots of people. April 15, 2011
Great Value This lense works very well in low light. Focus is sharp (better at f/2.8-4) and fast. Great all around lens. April 15, 2011
AWESOME normal lens for DX This lens has AWESOME focus, color, speed, and low light performance. Keep in mind that a 35mm will give you the equivalent of a 52.5mm on a FX sensor... so although it is considered wide, it is actually a normal lens. Having that said, on its own, it performs well... and add the price to the mix and it becomes a FANTASTIC buy. You cannot own a DX sensor camera and not have this lens. April 15, 2011
This product is excellent This product is perfect for amateur photographers. The price compared to the quality of the pictures and ease of use make it a must-have. April 15, 2011
Great for indoor photos. The 35mm f1.8 is the least expensive lens I own yet I use it on my D7000 more often than the others. It's perfect for indoor pictures such as birthdays and holidays as it allows me to take photos in normal lighting situations with a flash. I've used it to take family portraits and been very happy with the results as well. I can't think of anything negative to say about the lens. It's just a great lens for a great price. April 15, 2011
Fast, nice bokeh & compact size This is a wonderful miniature product by Nikon/Nikkor. It's super fast, very helpful in low light. I shot many frames with F8 - F22 with a variety of shutter and ISO speed. Result is excellent. Kudos to Nikkor! Further the price is v reasonable. April 15, 2011

Answer: 
Hi Cisco
I am sorry, but "Number One Contributor" gave you the wrong answer.
Your camera (D3000) do not have internal auto focus motor, but to have autofocus you can use any Nikkor lenses, which start from "AF-S ...".
All this lenses, including "AF-S DX NIKKOR 35mm f/1.8G", have internal silence auto focus motor.
And that means, that with this lens, your Nikon D3000 will have autofocus, I also can added: very fast , precise auto focus and this lens is really very sharp, very sharp for most price category.
Good luck Cisco.

Answer: 
Maybe. This lens will allow you to shoot in lower light conditions than the 18-55mm lens that came with your D3100. This might include shooting indoors without flash and in museums and at shows with fast moving people, assuming you can get close enough. I own one and like it but I also have other more general purpose lenses.

I have a feeling that if you have to ask, this lens might not be the right choice for you. A wideangle lens that goes from about 10-20mm will open up a whole new world of photography not available to you now (good for some travel shots, but stitching photos together might also work) and a lens with more reach such as 18-105mm or 18-200mm might have a more immediate benefit. Portrait photos typically use a lens somewhat longer than 55 mm (maybe 85mm on your camera). One thing that is especially nice about the 35 mm lens is its compactness. With this lens I can put my whole camera into a vestpocket pouch and shoot images in an art museum that does not allow flash. I have framed copies of several masterpieces I've taken this way.

Because many people like a little more reach, the kit lenses of cameras that cost a little more come with the 18-105 mm lens. Also there is a 55-200 mm lens that can provide extra reach without duplicating what you already have.

Answer: 
Probably the biggest difference is the aperture, f/1.8 will allow you to shoot in low light situations, and also allow you to blur the background when opening the lens wide. Fixed focal length lenses will often provide sharper images especially around the edges and corners of the frame.

Answer: 
That will work perfectly as the 35mm lens has its own focusing motor. The sb-400, especially when bounced, will give plenty of wide light to capture with the viewing angle of the 35mm lens! Cheers!

Answer: 
Yes it will auto focus on any of the newer bodies as it has its own AF motor built-in.

Answer: 
Yes, this lens will auto focus with D90 and with more simple DSRL - D50, D40 (which does not have internal AF motor inside the body).
D90 works with:
-all AF NIKKOR lenses D-/G-type (excluding IX NIKKOR lenses) with all functions possible (including 3D-Color Matrix Metering II mode);
-all DX AF NIKKOR lenses (all functions possible);
-all AF NIKKOR lenses other than D-/G-type (excluding old lenses for F3AF) will also have all functions, except 3D-Color Matrix Metering II mode;
-all old AF Nikkor without D-type will can not work in 3D Color Matrix Metering and 3D Multi-Sensor Balanced Fill-Flash mode.
- non AF lenses AI-P NIKKOR will not work in autofocus mode, 3D Color Matrix Metering II and 3D Multi-Sensor Balanced Fill-Flash mode.
