A brilliant reimagining of the classic 35mm prime for Z mirrorless cameras. Performance unlike any f/1.8 before it. Designed to be shot wide-open—extreme sharpness from the center of the frame to the edges. Liberating low-light performance. Dreamy blurred backgrounds. Ultra-quiet focusing. Equally great for stills or videos. Prepare to be amazed.

The 50 mm f/1.8 S series lens for the Z mount is a fast focusing lens that creates sharp images and really nice bokeh, especially for a 50 mm prime lens. It is light and easy to carry... The S series lenses by Nikon are all great! Can´t wait for the 70-200mm f/2.8 to be released.
Sharp, quick autofocus, and light. Color rendition is wonderful. The minimum focus distance is short enough that with the Z7 and its built-in vibration compensation, I have taken near-macro images hand-held that would have been impossible before.
This has become my standard lens for my Z7. It´s lightweight, extremely sharp and the autofocus is lightning quick. I have always liked a 35mm prime and have always owned one and am extremely happy with this version Nikon has produced for the Z cameras.
I´ve used many 35mm lenses and even have an old Pre-AI Nikon 35mm f/2.8.
The f-Mount 35mm it´s a great lens and most people might be happy just to adapt it. However the Z mount 35, I find of just ever so slightly better wide open and benefits from the 5 axis IBIS. The silent AF, is great for shooting in intimate situations as well as perfect for video.
I use mine for low light event photography and cold not be happier.
This is my third Native lens for the Nikon Z system. Like the previous lenses (24-70 f/4 and the 14-30) the 35/1.8 is very sharp corner to corner. With the IBIS in the Z7, the 1.8 aperture is outstanding in low light. The lens is comfortable to use both on auto and manual focus.
This is the first native lens that I purchased for my Z6 and I love it! Very lightweight and compact, so it´s nice when I stuff it into my backpack and hit the trails for my landscape photography. It´s very sharp edge to edge and the autofocus is much better than using the adapter and my other lenses. I also love using the focus ring as my aperture adjustment tool... very handy. My only complaint is that the bokeh at the wide-open 1.8 is a bit sharper than I prefer. I highly recommend this lens for anybody with a Z camera.
So far, my experience with all the native Z lenses is great. I have the 50 f/1.8, 35 f/1.8, 24-70 f/2.8 and the 14-30 f/4. I own both the Z6 and Z7 bodies. I switched to the Z system from a D850 and Df and have no regrets (except for focus performance when compared with the awesome D850).
All the Z lenses to date deliver incredible optics that compare favorably to many of the best lenses in the world, and are both reasonably priced and compact in size and weight. Nikon did a good job of going all-in on mirrorless and I´m now all-in, too.
I bought the 35 f1.8 as my primary lens with my new Z6. Moving to Z6 from a D810, and previously was using a Tamron 15-30 as a common walk-around lens with the 810 - the z6 with the 35 weighs less than the lens alone, or seemingly so. Sharpness is excellent, the f1.8 aperture combined with the Z6´s fabulous low-light capability is amazing. I still have the 15-30, and can use it with the FTZ, but I haven´t taken it out more than once or twice since getting the new combo. This lens has influenced me to plan on concentrating on z-mount lenses for future acquisitions, and to gradually cycle out my F-mount glass as time goes on.
This is a high quality medium wide angle lens that produces superb images along with the Z cameras, I also own the 24-70mm f2.8 S, but the prime lens gives excellent results on architecture.
