    Perfect lens

    Posted by Kohl on September 15, 2017

    Love this lens. Use it daily and it has held up beautifully after a solid year of use in the field. Very satisfied with the lens for the price point. Worth way more.

    Focus not sharp

    Posted by CrazyCatLady on March 17, 2017

    I´ve shot thousands of images using this new lens and none are sharp enough for stock photography or large prints. At long distance (ie: landscape), focus is not sharp. It seems ok at shorter distances, such as building interiors.

    I´ve tried different aperture settings from f/8 through f/18, manual both manual and auto-focus, ISO less than 400 on bright sunny days, and high enough shutter speed (faster than 1/80 sec) for hand-held shots. I am shooting with a D7100 in RAW and do not have any issues with my other 3 lenses. I am unable to get a sharp image with this 35 mm lens.

    This product is not sharp enough for professional photography.

    Great lens, especially when you´re on a budget!

    Posted by Shante on January 21, 2017

    As a a mostly portrait photographer I love a wider focal length with a lower aperture. However, this lens is the perfect focal length, not too wide and not too up close making it great for just about any circumstance. Not to mention it is incredibly light weight and pretty dang sharp.

    The only thing I hate about this lens is there is a lot of chromatic aberration (pictured below, READ CAPTION). But, I guess this is where ´´you get what you pay for´´ comes to play and it´s nothing a little post op lens correction can´t fix, (thank god).

    Overall, I would definitely recommend this to those who are all about working with what you can afford!

    Best dx portrait lens ever! And for an amazing price

    Posted by Thecatint on January 17, 2017

    This was the first lens I have ever bought separately from my 2 kit lenses, I use this on my d3400 and it provides amazing light and background blur and 35mm is a nice focal length, I got this lens because it was one of the most reviewed and one of the cheapest lenses out there, and it was the only f/1.8 lens made by Nikon for dx cameras, you cannot go wrong with this lens and I highly suggest it for beginners who want to do portrait photography.

    Must Have for DX cameras

    Posted by Hhhops on October 22, 2016

    Got this normal lens a year ago after reading good reviews. They were right - this is a very sharp and fast lens at a bargain price. I carry it everywhere to use in low light situations and landscapes.

    I´ve used it with a D3100 and D7200. Awesome with both.

    Great in low light!

    Posted by Turf69 on May 17, 2016

    Bought this for my 3300. Used indoors for holiday pics without a flash. Sharp pictures with ambiant light.

    Excellent for low-light concert photography

    Posted by Zackues on May 4, 2016

    I have been photographing house-concerts with low-light with excellent results, sweet spot for least amount of Colour Aberration and highest sharpness seem to be around f/2.8 to f/4. Excellent performer even wide open at f/1.8 in darker situations.

    Nice lens.

    Posted by Jackal on April 10, 2016

    Nice lens, compact too.
    But I just realized something.
    This lens doesn´t have VR, not required on a fixed lens?
