AF-S DX NIKKOR 35mm f/1.8G
Excellent performance; even better price
I can't say enough good things about this lens. It is fast and capable of use in low light conditions and takes phenomenal portraits. It is also well suited for landscape shots especially in low light. You just can't beat a super sharp prime such as this. The focus motor is quick and hassle free.

Buy fresh inspiration for less than $300.00
I bought this lens to use primarily with my D90. I bought this lens 12 hours ago. It's 1:29am and I can't put my camera down. It's as though I am rediscovering my love of photography all over again. I forgot how much fun such a simple (but diverse) lens can be and couldn't be happier with this little gem. Snappy and sharp with colour that is hard to beat at two or even three times the price. This lens will impress any enthusiast.

Muy luminoso y nítido, excelente para poca luz.
Un excelente Objetivo a un precio razonable, solo hay que tener cuidado en la exposición, ya que los que estamos acostumbrados al 18-55 le damos un poco mas de exposición.... y éste no lo requiere!!! de hecho hay ocasiones que tenemos que sub-exponer, con resultados maravillosos.

Excelente objetivo! Las imágenes me gustan muchísimo. La nitidez es sorprendente. Estoy muy contento con este objetivo.

Bókeh y nitidéz gracias a la gran apertura
Viendo videos de tips de fotografía me di cuenta que mucha gente realmente recomendaba tener un lente primo, y haciendo un poco más de investigación vi que también mucha gente recomendaba este lente, así que decidí adquirirlo. Debo decir que para nada me decepcionó.
Es un lente recomendado más que nada para retratos y situaciones de poca luz, y vaya que funciona muy bien en esas circunstancias. La apertura de 1.8 permite elevar la velocidad del obturador y así conseguir fotos más nítidas y, con el bókeh que eso produce, eliminas practicamente cualquier distracción del sujeto.
Lo recomiendo mucho y además, es un lente barato para la calidad que ofrece. La única "queja" que podría tener es el sistema A/M de enfoque; se me hace innecesario (o tal vez no entiendo cómo usarlo todavía). Hubiera preferido el clásico A y M por separado.

Ótima para Paisagens
A melhor lente para paisagens, tanto noturna quanto diurna

tenía mis dudas en adquirir un lente fijo, realmente me gustó mucho, aun cuando no sé mucho de fotografía aprecio la calidad de las tomas en relación con el lente que ya traía mi cámara d5100

Clareza e nitidez
Esse lente tem uma qualidade de imagem impressionante. Nitidez, clareza, sem distorção nem flare, com foco rápido e resultado surpreendente. Uso na Nikon D5100 em substituição à 18-55mm que vem no kit básico da câmera. Nunca mais usei outra lente para retratos e documentar eventos familiares dentro e fora de casa. Lente leve que custa pouco pela qualidade que oferece. Veja a extraordinária qualidade e definição em ampliações de fotos como em 20x30cm e vai perceber. Prós: funciona bem com pouca luz, clareza e definição das imagens, preço. Contra: o motor da lente faz um barulhinho que não chega a incomodar. Recomendo a todos que começarem a exigir mais qualidade e sobretudo definição nas suas fotografias. Uma excelente lente.

Gran calidad de imagen en situaciones criticas de luz.
Pues después de ver a algunos amigos con este objetivo decidí adquirirlo, y desde las primeras pruebas me a sorprendido la calidad que tiene , y bajo las condiciones mas duras de baja luminosidad en conjunto con un iso elevado me a sorprendido lo bien que se puede trabajar se que aun falta ponerlo a prueba en situaciones mas exigentes, pero promete mucho.

Pata Negra pues asi lo he bautizado a mi pequeño luminoso , este objetivo me ha permitio trabajar con luz natural, a velocidades de obturacion mayores a 1/800 llegando inclusive a velocidades de 1/4000, con una calidad muy buena, en iso 100. Su motor de enfoque es silencioso casi imperseptible.
Ligeramente pesado eso es bueno porque defiende su calidad de las lentes.
Me agradaria que todos los objetivos tengan ya de serie un filtro protector, asi no nos tendriamos que estar preocupando por la limpieza, y en caso de rayadura que se pueda cambiar asi como lo hacemos con filtros , pero que venga ya de fabrica.

I just have bought this lens, took couple of shots; result is AMAZING!!. My suggestion, you should have this lens on your shopping list if you don't have one. Auto-focus response is quick & colors are just perfect.
Another good aspect of this lens is Bokeh effect. If you are fond of putting Bokeh in your pictures, this is the lens you should not miss.

Great little lens for the money
The Nikkor 35mm f1.8 offers very decent image quality for a very modest price. I usually shoot with Nikkor zoom lenses and bought this little gem as more of a 'go-to' lens in lower light situations. Works well for that purpose and is certainly worth the modest price.

Great lens with a minor quirk
Very sharp and impressive lens. Great shots in low light when auto focusing can function.
Only issue it is more difficult to manual focus than my other lenses I have, in extreme low light. Manually adjusting to infinity in low light such as night sky is extremely difficult due to adjustment turns past the infinity point on the lens, no distance indicator and no focusing screen in camera. I believe I can adjust to this just a small quirk as long it is not a quick shot.
I would give 5 stars if not for the night manual adjustment. Still a great buy.

Very nice lens
Out of all the Nikkor lenses I have the 35/1.8 gives me consistently as good a picture as any of them. The problem for me is that in general I find the fixed focal length too limiting, so it is not on the camera as much as I would have hoped. But when the situation is right this is a very nice lens to have.

Light and great
this is very light, sharp, and have good price to buy.

Wish I knew the 40mm micro was coming out
A week after buying this 35mm 1.8, Nikon released the 40mm DX Micro. The next purchase on my list was a Macro lens, and I could have gotten one to save money. That being said, the f1.8 on this lens earns itself a high place on my list. I currently have the 50mm 1.8 and kit lens 18-55mm as well. This has become my default lens and people always ask me what lens I'm using now that I own this when they see my pictures. It is very sharp. It has a great depth of field. It is a useful range. It is light weight, does not extend or rotate while focusing and has manual override in auto focus mode. Great lens for the type of photography I do. If I want a panaramic shot I stitch multiple shots together so I don't have to carry a large, heavy, expensive wide angle lens like a Tokina 11-16mm. It's just a bit too wide for most portrait work, but I do it anyway.;) Great colors and fast enough to use indoors at concerts or programs where the overhead lights are off. Could go on forever, but it's a great choice for lower end cameras in place of a zoom lens. Primary reason to get this over a kit lens is that it is much sharper and can be used in lower light to get higher shutter speeds and capture action. I photographed break dancers at ISO 1600 and 1/250 at f/1.8 at a night club. Not going to happen with a kit lens.

Good little all purpose fast lens
I purchased this lens looking for a fast short prime lens for nature and environmental portraiture work. So far I have been very happy with the results. Placed on the front of my 3100, I have been impressed with it's ability to focus fairly quickly, especially with the MA setting. With a good set of close up filters you even get usable macro shots. Nice bokah as well, though not as great as some of the higher end models. For the price it is hard to beat though. Only quibble is that you can't change aperture on the lens.

Good Value, sharp,
The 35mm f/1.8 G is a great addition to any amateur or enthusiasts bag. It's sharp, small, takes up little space in the bag. Minor issue flare shooting a sunset the other night, but was shooting into the setting sun and it cropped out. For the money, it's hard to find a reason not to buy this lens.
April 28, 2011
Excellent fast lens.
Purchased to use for low light photography indoors (preferably without flash). Am extremely happy with the results so far. Excellent quality/price ratio.
April 23, 2011
Just bough this lens in March 28-2011 this is a fast lens, taking pictures at very low light condition and sharp but disappoints is, I thought it was a wide angle one but it not, oh well
April 18, 2011
Good performance at a reasonable price
1. Performance for cost is excellent
2. Nice that it has focus override
3. low geometric distortion
1. pretty noticeable chromatic aberration (red/cyan) when used wide open. Close down to f2.5 to eliminate it.
2. High f stops in my sample result in about a 1-stop underexposure.
Summary: I'd buy it again in a heartbeat,as the negatives are easily dealt with with PP and attention to what f stop one is using.

Wonderful and light for shooting
This is an extremely light and easy to use lens. Pictures are crisp and it works great in low-light. Tried it on my D7000 and D200. Love this lens.
April 18, 2011
It is great prime lens for low light bt crop camras.
very good value for money and easy to use.
I can recomend it to every photographer, from amator to pro.

A must have for DX cameras
This lens becomes 50mm lens for DX cameras which makes it a normal lens. Though a prime lens requires you to move a lot while composing the shot but on the positive side photo quality and bokeh are better than a zoom lens.
This is the most versatile, low budget lens for a DX-camera.

Perfect lens substititute for 50mm standard
I use this lens on a Nikon D300 body and it is my go to lens for portraiture and general purpose use when I need a fast lens. It auto-focuses very fast and accurate and produces decent smooth out of focus areas. For the price it is a value for those who can not afford the f1.4.
April 15, 2011
I purchased the lens to lighten my D300 and to give me better low light performance. The D300 auto ISO is so effective that I never get the lens faster than 2.8. I've been so spoiled by my 18 - 200 Nikon lens that I found a 35 mm far too restrictive for my typical usage.
April 14, 2011
I bought this lens not too long ago and love it! I love how small it is and so light weight too. It was a good price and I would recommend to get this lens!
April 14, 2011
Great lens, wonderful value
This lens lives on my D3000 almost all the time. You may have to do a little footwork to get your shots framed how you want, but the speed and flexibility this lens offers are well worth it.
I use it for low-light shots, poor-man's macro shots with a set of close-up filters, and general walking around purposes.
April 14, 2011
This lens has great overall performance!
I bought this lens to use an auto-focus 'prime' for my D40 and it stayed on 85% of the time. When I upgraded to a D200 it still remained one of my favourite-use lenses. The colours are great, images sharp and low-light ability awesome. There are some noticeable CA issues but easily fixed in post. I have never seen or used the more expensive 1.4G but unless I move to full frame I can't see a compelling reason to. A great lens for everyday use.
