Superior image quality

Advanced Nikon lens technologies

Optimized for edge-to-edge sharpness on both FX- and DX-format D-SLRs, the AF-S NIKKOR 35mm f/1.4G combines outstanding NIKKOR optics and the latest Nikon lens technologies.

Silent Wave Motor (SWM) and Rear Focusing (RF) enables fast, smooth, accurate and quiet autofocus operation, and a convenient Manual/Autofocus switch (M/A) allows for seamless override of the autofocus system. Simply put, the AF-S NIKKOR 35mm f/1.4G is an advanced lens for advanced D-SLR cameras.

Conquering Environments

Prime image quality for the sharpest of details

Because of its low light capabilities and 63 degree angle of view on an FX DSLR, the AF-S NIKKOR 35mm f/1.4G might be one of the most useful prime lenses Nikon offers. If you only select only one fast prime lens to own, this is the one you've been waiting for.

Versatile Shooter

Fast glass ready for action

The AF-S NIKKOR 35mm f/1.4G can be used for landscapes, portraits, travel, street photography, photo journalism, available light and whenever there needs to be separation between the foreground subject and the background.
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.
Nano Crystal Coat

Nano Crystal Coat

An anti-reflective coating developed by Nikon that virtually eliminates internal lens element reflections across a wide range of wavelengths.


AS stands for Aspherical lens elements. This type of lens utilizes non-spherical surfaces on either one or both sides of the glass in order to eliminate certain types of lens aberration.


Select NIKKOR lenses have a focusing mode which allows switching from automatic to manual focusing with virtually no lag time by simply turning the focusing ring on the lens.
Rear Focusing

Rear Focusing System

A system in which only the rear lens group moves during focusing, thus eliminating changes in the physical length of the lens during focusing and enabling faster focusing. Such lenses are designated with RF on the lens barrel.
