  • Great walk around lens

  • April 14, 2011
  • By: Dave

I have had this lens over a year now and can tell you that if your gonna go downtown to do some city shooting there is no need for any other lens but this one. This lens is very sharp (far better then any kit lens by leaps and bounds), is fast, quiet, small, and light weight. For anyone looking for a great lens whether a novice just starting out or a hobbyist looking to step up to a better lens then the one that came with the camera, this is the one to go with.

I'll agree with Dave below that this lens is very sharp, fast, quiet, small and light weight. But if you're shooting on a DX camera then you're better using the 24mm f/2.8 or 20mm f/2.8 prime lens as the 35mm f/1.8 would be a slight portrait lens

  • My favourite lens

  • April 08, 2011
  • By: Evan M

I've had this lens for about 6 months now, and its fantastic. Its my first 'prime' lens for my Nikon D90 and since then I've also purchased Nikon's 50mm f1.8 lens. Its very sharp overall, and reasonably sharp wide-open. I've had no problems at all with this lens so far. Its light, feels strong physically, and focuses very quickly and in silence. Excellent lens for the price - I've recommended it to many friends.

  • Can't Be Beat!

  • April 07, 2014
  • By: Brad

If you're shooting DX and considering buying this lens, stop thinking and just go buy it! The 35mm focal length is so useful on DX, plus the large aperture works wonders in low light. And unlike other fast primes, this is completely use-able wide open at f/1.8. Perfectly sharp at all apertures, plus it's super lightweight and easy to carry. I had the Sigma 30mm f/1.4 Art and sold it to buy this cheaper Nikon... not to save money, but because I loved the performance and weight of this lens!

  • Results are just amazing for what you pay!

  • March 18, 2013
  • By: Josh

I didn't really expect as much from this lense when I first bought it. But I wanted something a bit wider to shoot than 50mm. I brought it to a concert thinking "oh, it's not going to be as sharp as my 50mm 1.4, but I need something wider." So I went for it. As I was reviewing the shots later, I noticed they were MUCH sharper than I thought. Anyways, I'd say if your shooting DX, need something for low-light, and looking for something lightweight. Pick this one up. For a concert photographer on a budget; it's now my go-to lense.

  • Over two years with this lens

  • November 02, 2012
  • By: Matt

On a DX Nikon body, you can expect great results from this lens. As other reviewers have noted, you could use just this lens and nothing else on a trip around a city or on vacation. Indoors, it can prove to be a little too tight of a crop, but otherwise it works perfectly in low light. I particularly like taking portraits with this lens, as it focuses quickly and produces a nice soft background, especially at F/1.8. The lens also has full time manual override, so even in autofocus mode you can grab the mechanical focus ring and adjust to your liking. Overall, I would give this a 5,the only caveat is that it does not have completely silent focus that many newer lenses have (only an issue with video though). It's a great investment and a great starter lens for those wishing to push the creative boundaries of their SLR.

  • Quick / Easy / Comfortable

  • February 21, 2012
  • By: William

That's the best way I can explain it. I have two other lenses that are zoom and a bit heavy on the camera. Good to use however not comfortable walking around with. This lens is awesome for that!!! When on the camera, it feels like it's not there it is so light. It's great for a quick snap when out and about. It's great for having one the camera and slinging it over your sholder, you don't even know it's there. I love it. It's very light and compact. It takes ver sharp pictures. And I love the fact it has a manual override for the auto focus as it allows for an quick and easy way to 'play' with your potential shots. And it's a very quiet lens as well. Did I say that I love this lens :)

Great little lens. I find this focal length to be much more usable on Dx than the 50mm. Pics are sharp and clear wide open. I love sticking this on my camera as a walk around lens, its light, inconspicuous and gives great pictures.

  • AMAZING Lens

  • January 05, 2012
  • By: Matt

Once again nikon has produces a fantastic lens for a low price. This is THE SHARPEST lens I have ever used. Portraits look amazing and this lens also produces nice macro shots. Because of its 1.8 f-stop, this lens is perfect for taking pictures like water drops because you can set the shutter speed to super fast and still have enough light. Brilliant lens, I dont plan on ever getting rid of this lens, and for only 280 dollars, you cant go wrong!

  • Excellent in low-light

  • December 26, 2011
  • By: Joseph Ken

I have this lens for about a month, in-door photos without internal or external flash gun is amazing on my D5100. I tried it on Christmas Eve at St. Paul Basilica Toronto, the images from the ceiling and alter is so bright and clear. It is a must have for Nikon DX owner.

  • Perfect match for any DX SLR

  • October 30, 2011
  • By: Matthew

The good: It just works, perfectly, every time. The SWM focus drive is fast and has instant manual override. It's crazy sharp and seems to have essentially zero distortion. It's optically excellent, and fast! Build quality seems pretty sturdy; it's not up to Canon's L-spec, but it's close enough for most purposes. The bad: Nothing.

  • Good lens

  • June 22, 2011
  • By: John

I grabbed this lens after reading people's comments about prime lenses and hearing how great they are. I am not disappointed at all with this lens, except now I am hooked and I see a 50mm F1.4 in my future!

  • Not Impressed

  • April 07, 2011
  • By: John

All the reviews say to get this lens "it's a no-brainer". Right. My 18-105 kit lens is sharper than this thing in the centre. Edge sharpness in this lens is only better at optimum apertures 4-5.6. Unless you need to shoot at wide apertures, save your money. I wish I had. By the way, my copy of this lens is back to Nikon Service to see if they can align the elements to correct the abysmal resolution in one corner. Not Impressed.
