Nikon AF-s 35/1.8 DX G lens
The fastest DX-Format NIKKOR lens to date*
With a compact, lightweight design, the AF-S DX NIKKOR 35mm f/1.8G provides the high reproduction capability and picture quality for which NIKKOR lenses are renowned, at an affordable price. The ring type SWM offers quiet AF operation. Although all lens groups shift during focusing, the front element and filter mount do not rotate and the barrel length does not change, which is useful when using filter mounted SB-R200 Wireless Remote Speedlight units.
The AF-S DX NIKKOR 35mm f/1.8G optical design allows a different look and feel to images taken with zoom lenses, and its dimensions are ideal for discrete snapshots and landscape shooting with a picture angle that approximates that of the human eye. With its rounded seven-blade diaphragm opening, out-of-focus elements appear more natural. When mounted on a DX-format SLR, the picture angle is the 35mm equivalent focal length of 50mm.
The AF-S NIKKOR 35mm f/1.8G has two focus modes, M/A (manual override autofocus) and M (manual focus). The M/A mode enables instant manual switching during AF operation. The lens also features a rubber seal to minimise moisture ingression around the mount and can focus down to 0.3 meters.
5mm wide aperture lens with high-quality optics and compact dimensions designed for use with Nikon DX format cameras. Features a large maximum aperture of f/1.8 that offers a bright viewfinder image and is ideal for low light shooting situations. Delivers high resolution and contrast with quiet autofocus operation.
