This Nikon 35mm F/1.8 Bundle comes with: . Bonus: No sales tax either, unless you live in New York or New Jersey.
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/1.8 is commonly used for Low light and more.

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).
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.
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
This product if perfect for portrait shots and landscape as well!!
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.
This DX 35mm f/1.8 lens is an excellent value. Its resolution rivals that of FX lenses three times the cost. The image below was taken with a Nikon D40 camera body at a shutter speed of 1/125 of s second, an aperture of f/1.8, an ISO of 560, Auto White Balance, and Matrix Metering.
Although this lens is a prime lens, it is very versatile ! If you are looking for a lens that is compact and can offer a little of everything this is the lens for you. It works beautifully as a macro lens capturing small details. But is tack sharp at longer focal lengths. This is one of my new favorites! I think for the price you really can't go wrong. This is my 5th lens I have purchased from Nikon and its nothing short of amazing!!!
If you have a DX format camera and do not have this lens you are missing out. Everything about this lens is fantastic. It is in my opinion the best value lens on the market as far as price vs performance goes. This lens is on my camera 90% of the time. It is my go to lens for portraits, street, candid and all around people photography. If you want to take your photography up a few notches from the kit lens you can not do any better for the money than this lens.
I am using this lens from last 15 months. Initially I was happy with this lens when I bought my first DSLR because it was really sharp and having wide aperture f/1.8 . But after having some experiences about different aspects of quality photo e.g. distortion, chromatic aberration etc. of this lens started to disappoint me. This lens creates quite barrel distortion that I hate to see in the photo. Even 18-55mm kit lens can produce distortion free photo at 35mm. And this lens creates high chromatic aberration which I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t like to have in the photo. On the other hand 50mm f/1.8G is better lens from every aspect. Now I have 50mm f/1.8G and I want to sell 35mm f/1.8 lens.
I purchased this glass for use with my [new] Nikon D7100, and I was absolutely thrilled with the shots I achieved! It's lightweight, inexpensive, and really fun to use, actually. It's really great when you are shooting in low-light situations. I am enthralled by this lens; the magnificent clarity, the amazingly smooth bokeh, the astounding depth of field, and the solid feel and flawless performance. I would recommend this to any photographer; the beginner, the enthusiast, and the professional.
