Ideal for Nikon lovers
  • This lens is designed to work with Nikon FX and DX cameras, so if you've got one of those you're all set.
Excellent optics
  • When you're snapping shots during the grand entrance of the birthday cake you'll be thankful for this lens's large maximum aperture of f/1.8, which is ideal for low light shooting situations like this.
  • The advanced optical design provides excellent edge to corner sharpness so your images be full of rich detail.
  • The ability to focus down to 0.3m lets you get up close and personal with amazing-looking imagery.
Take full control over your photos
  • Choose between the 2 focus modes to get your shot looking just right: M/A (manual override autofocus), which enables instant manual switching during AF operation, or M (manual focus).
  • Adding some artistry to your photos by making the background out of focus? The rounded 7-blade diaphragm opening makes out-of-focus elements appear more natural.
Stuff you'll want to know
  • Getting moisture inside the lens can be, to put it mildly, extremely annoying. This lens features a rubber seal to minimize moisture ingression.
  • When mounted on a DX-format SLR, the picture angle is the 35mm equivalent focal length of 52.5mm

    Love my new 35mm Prime lens great bokeh, sharp pictures great for portraits. Paired with my crop sensor Nikon d3300 I get great looking pics equivalent to a 52mm lens.

    I have a number of zoom lens ranging from 18 to 300 mm. But I wanted a fast, single focal length lens for portrait and indoor use that was light and fast to use. Even though it is 35 mm, in DX format that bring it up to roughly a 50 mm standard focal length. For me it was a great choice.
