About Nikon 35mm f/1.8G-S DX

This Nikon 35mm f/1.8G-S DX Bundle comes with: and Shipping is free! .

AF-S DX NIKKOR 35mm f/1.8G lens, is the first fixed focal length, fast-aperture DX-format lens that affords photographers superb image quality along with the creative possibilities and versatility of the classic 50mm focal length (FX-format equivalent of 52mm). When mounted on a DX-format camera body, it enables photographers to document their world with a lens that produces a picture angle similar to the field of vision as seen through the human eye. Whether new to D-SLRs or a seasoned enthusiast, users will appreciate the extreme low-light performance and the expanded ability to dramatically separate the subject and background with the new 35mm DX lens' wide f/1.8 aperture.

Lightweight, compact and affordable, this lens can easily become a fast favorite for any level of photographer, and is the perfect complement to D60 users who are just starting to learn D-SLR photography or enthusiasts who love their D90. The AF-S DX NIKKOR 35mm f/1.8G lens is ideal for travel, general photography, landscape shooting, portraiture or pushing creative boundaries. The stunning sharpness, clarity and color reproduction are all proof positive of more than 75 years of NIKKOR heritage and experience in optics engineering.

This lens continues the tradition of NIKKOR precision optics to provide photographers with sharp, high-resolution images and the ability to focus as close as 0.98 feet, while the integration of an ultra-compact Silent Wave Motor ensures fast, whisper-quiet AF operation.

The 35mm DX lens construction consists of eight elements in six groups, with one aspherical lens to reduce size and weight, while contributing to the enhanced balance when mounted on a smaller DX-format D-SLR. A rounded diaphragm opening combined with the seven-blade aperture contributes to a substantially more circular bokeh for a more natural appearance of out-of-focus background elements. Additionally, instances of lens flare and chromatic aberration are suppressed using Nikon's exclusive Super Integrated Coatings, which also help ensure vividly accurate color balance.

The Nikon 35mm f/1.8G-S DX is commonly used for Low light and more.The Nikon 35mm f/1.8G-S DX is popular because customers like the following qualities of the Nikon 35mm f/1.8G-S DX: Consistent output and Fast / accurate auto-focus

Great Lens, a Must Have

Lens just arrived and I love it already, its it light and the pics have been sharp. I do prefer this one to the 50mm 1.8, and am using it on a D7000

Wonderful Lens!


from Cambridge, Ohio  -  Pro Photographer

My name is Steven and I sell stock photography. My editors are very fussy, inspecting every image at 100 percent- so a great lens is a must, and the Nikkor 35mm f/1.8G has never let me down! I recently conducted a test comparing an image captured with my full frame Canon EOS 6D coupled with Canon's 50 mm f 1.8 11 lens, with that of my cropped sensor Nikon D7100 and this 35mm lens. The test image was my woodland rock garden containing many textural elements and a large depth of field. After reviewing both images at 100 percent, I was surprised to discover that my D7100 and this 35mm f/1.8 slightly edged out the Canon full- frame combo. While the Canon's image was very good, this lens picked up more detail in my wooden trellis and raised flower beds, as well as in the woodland grass in the far background. Don't let the price fool you- this lens has great optics! Check out my attached image of the upper falls at Old Man's Cave that I shot in the rain. This lens is capable of great things and will soon become one of your favorites.


Fast and Light Lens


from Stratford, CT  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I bought this lens for both its sharpness, low light capabilities and its lightness. I use it for landscape photography but would not hesitate to use it for weddings especially in a low light condition. I like its size, weight and quick focusing. It renders sharp images especially at f5.6 and its profile is small as well when deployed on the camera body. My only concern is it is not as well constructed as heavier primes and I knew that before I purchased it. In fact I bought it for its lightness. All in all a great little lens.

Beginners dream


from NC

I somewhat recently took up photography and was using an 18 - 50mm kit lens. I'd always seen these sort of magazine quality images with perfect contrast and creamy bokeh, and I could nail the composition of my photos but it still wouldn't ever look quite as good. This lens fixed that. It's incredibly sharp, but what's more is that colors pop like crazy on my photos! I got it a few days ago and I can already tell a huge difference with my photography. As an amateur, I'm definitely looking to learn more about photography. This lens will help me in that it is a fixed lens with no zoom, and so forces me to think more about framing the subject and the angle instead of just lazily zooming in or out. My only complaint about this lens is that it somehow has made my camera louder, specifically focusing and shooting. But it's not a big deal. All in all, I recommend this lens to anyone learning photography or looking for an inexpensive, professional looking lens.

Look No Further


from Undisclosed

This lens is truly one of the best purchases I've ever made. I use it every single day, and it works for so many kinds of photography. It is perfect for portraits, but also landscapes and scenery. I love this lens so much and don't think I could find a better "everyday" lens if I tried. If you're considering this lens, go ahead and get it, you will NOT be disappointed.


Excellent and affordable lens for Nikon crop sensors


from Boston, MA  -  Photo Enthusiast

When I purchased my D7100, I needed a lens to go with it. I preferred to skip the kit lens, since I wanted a faster lens than f/3.5 for low light. I couldn't afford a f/2.8 zoom at the time, and I tend to prefer primes anyway, so the 35mm f/1.8 was an obvious choice. Very affordable, approximates a 50mm field of view on crop sensors (52.5mm to be exact), and good sharpness. I have used it wide open, but I generally stop down to f/2.2 for best results balancing sharpness and shallow depth of field. If you want more depth of field, the lens performs very well at higher apertures as well.


Very good lens


from Memphis, TN  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I bought this lens because Ken Rockwell so highly recommended it. He was right. It is a superb lens. I immediately took photos of my Harley Vrod at maximum aperture and they look great! The background is beautifully out of focus. The details of the engine and bodywork are sharper than the results with any other lens I have. The photos were significantly noticeable for their clarity and sharpness, compared to my kit lens (18-105mm VR).


Nice image quality, but just a little slower than I expected.


from Ohio, USA

Lens takes very nice crispy photos. I use it on my D7100. Nice bokeh it's a 1.8! For moving objects like a dog ,the focusing is a little slow. I like the lens a lot aside from that. It's light and compact takes awesome photos.

Amazing for journalism photography


from Round Rock, TX, USA

I'm one of the photographers in my school's yearbook program. This lens has been amazing every step of the way. -First off, it is extremely lightweight which is awesome because I can focus on photography instead of struggling with camera shake like my friends who use the school's huge canon zoom lenses -Focus is very fast when in viewfinder mode. -Photos are tack sharp -Obviously, it's very fast shutter speed due to aperture options -However, there is a slight purple/magenta chromatic aberration in some pictures. -very versatile, from portraits to basketball games -cheap lens but still very good quality photos


Must Buy


from Tinley Park IL  -  Casual Photographer

This product if perfect for portrait shots and landscape as well!!


Compact, max aperture f1.8


from Redwood Falls, MN  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I bought this lens specifically to be used on a visit to St. Petersburg, Russia. I anticipated doing a lot of work inside the many ornate historic buildings where flash is not allowed. It served admirably and continues to do so for general use.

farzin M  This is not an auto focus lens or is it?
ANDREAS S  yes. the AF-S indicates the type of auto focus. You can check that your camera body supports it.
farzin M  Thanks Andreas, how do I check if my D40 supports it. I have a Nikon 50mm but the auto focus does not work with it :(

frank s  If I put the 35mm 1.8 onto a D800E, what is its focal length? One Lox at a LA camera store said it would be 35mm and not have the DX pop. Help
TOBY P  This lens will not work properly on your 800E. The image projection area is designed for a crop sensor, not a full sensor as in the 800E. This lens on your 800E will not project the image across the full sensor. I understand the d800E has a crop sensor setting but I think this may have to do more with composition than with using a DX lens on a FX body. My advice is to purchase a full sensor FX lens since you spent the money for a FX body in the 800E. I use the d300s body with this lens and it works great, but it is a DX (crop sensor). A primary job of mine is sports action photography, so it works fine for me.
frank s  Thanks. I have a D200 but only use it to get the crop boost. Looks like a 35 or 28 mm. I have a 17-35 but was looking for something lighter. Thanks.
