AF-S NIKKOR 35mm f/1.4G
Never leaves my D800E
i purchased this lens to use doing Street Photography because it's less obtrusive than a 24-70. I have not regretted that decision. The sharpness and Bokeh are phenomenal and coupled with to 800E's resolution make this easily one of the best lenses Nikon has ever made. I've been shooting with Nikon products since 1973 and this is the first lens I just can't take off my camera.
Try it, you'll LOVE it.

Bright and Optically Superb
This lens is perfect for interior low light situations. Below is a photo taken by candle light with a Nikon D4 camera body. The shutter speed is 1/125 of a second, the aperture is f/1.4, the ISO is 2200, with Auto White Balance and Matrix Metering.

Amazing detail and bokeh
This is perhaps the best 35 mm lens there is for a nikon FX DSLR. I find it to be perfect for my D800. Portraits and landscape photos are breathtaking.

This is by far my favorite Nikkor lens. I own a range of zoom and fast primes, but, the 35G lives on my camera most of the time. I do love 24G and 85G, but for versatility and image quality, I always fall back to this focal length. The 24G is fantastic, but for closeup shots, distortion can get ugly. The 35G has magical bokeh with slightly exaggerated perspective that sets itself apart from the 50 and 85. When I go through the images in my lightroom, I can always pick out the ones shot with the 35G. It is one of Nikon's true classic, and will always stay in my bag.
