    Creates amazing images

    Posted by jlee1206 on March 7, 2020

    I am a Nikon user since 1998, and I recommend this Nikkor to anyone who likes to create beautiful images. I have been using F2.8 zooms (which are great performers) but recently i am moving into primes. These new generations of F1.4 primes are simply awesome. I am very impressed with brightness, beautiful colors, and fast accurate operations. Built quality is top as well. BTW, I also own Leica summicrons and I am very very much impressed with this Nikkor 35mm F1.4 prime. Get this Nikkor and try it out at F1.4 and you will see what I mean. Lots of people says gears don´t make you better photographer, but you should try this lens and compare the results with what you have been getting with other cheaper lens.

    Thanks to Nikon engineers!

    My new Dream Lens

    Posted by Hanka on January 10, 2020

    Portraiturist. Just purchased this lens. I must say, I am blown away with its sharpness, colour rendition, LOW light performance and clarity. Very few if any editing touches needed. I already own the main primes, 50, 85 1.4, 105 f2.8, VR macro, 10-24DX e.t.c. I have been considering a zoom 70-200 f 2.8 ED FL VR, but after a shoulder injury the weight and bulkiness of my D850 with the heavy Nikon DSLRs zoom lenses became an issue. I am not ready to switch to the mirrorles´s world as yet. I think, this new lens is a partial solution. The 35mm focal length is practical, I am tired of 50mm, just want to try something different. It is said, it is not recommended for a portraiture due to a distortion, however the closeups look wonderful to me. For groups, insides small spaces, environmental portraits, nature shots, the weekend walks and hikes - this lens is ever so versatile and practical. Seems cooperate well with D850, too. So far, ever so happy with it!

    My Favorite Lens

    Posted by PXLSonline on September 26, 2016

    Small, light... the perfect balance between focusing on your subject and engaging the background to tell the full story. It´s an amazing lens. I was hesitant. The cost is substantial but anything this good is. I went back and forth and back and forth until I closed my eyes and swiped the card. I could not be happier. In fact, I´ve transitioned away from most my zooms (sold them). I´ve gone through and really studied the range(s) at which most photos were taken and found they all tend to fall in at 35, 50, 85, 105, and 200. I guess there´s a reason Nikon makes those primes right? Changing to primes elevates your work and forces you to be a better photographer. It gets you involved in what your shooting instead of keeping you on the outside. When that happens you grow as an artist. People that talk about focus issues and clarity on any of the top of the line prime lenses most likely haven´t shot enough with it and/or understand depth of field and how to use their camera to it´s full potential. Sure every company, lens and camera lineup have duds but I have not come across any lens in the nikon lineup that wasn´t tack sharp when used correctly. BUY THIS LENS!

    A Wonderful All Around Lens

    Posted by Davidmichael on July 5, 2015

    I´ve had the 35mm f/1.4G for a couple of years and still enjoy using it as when I first bought it. I love the smooth bokeh when aperture is wide open though there´s color fringing on the out of focus portion of an image, it doesn´t take away from the exceptional sharpness and clarity in detail it produces. This is the third prime lens I purchased as I transitioned away from zoom lenses to accompany my 24mm f/1.4G and 85mm f/1.4G. I´ve used the 35mm f/1.4G to photograph sports and corporate events to impress clients. I especially enjoy using it to photograph my Pomeranian during our walks and travels together.

    Should you find yourself in the position to owning the 35m f/1.4G, you will not be disappointed with the results. It´s versatile for photographing everything from open spaces of the outdoors to inside close quarters of a small room. Overall it´s a pleasure to use and hope you get to experience and capture wonderful images to share.

    Never leaves my D800E

    Posted by streetShotz on July 2, 2015

    i purchased this lens to use doing Street Photography because it´s less obtrusive than a 24-70. I have not regretted that decision. The sharpness and Bokeh are phenomenal and coupled with to 800E´s resolution make this easily one of the best lenses Nikon has ever made. I´ve been shooting with Nikon products since 1973 and this is the first lens I just can´t take off my camera.

    Try it, you´ll LOVE it.

    Bright and Optically Superb

    This lens is perfect for interior low light situations. Below is a photo taken by candle light with a Nikon D4 camera body. The shutter speed is 1/125 of a second, the aperture is f/1.4, the ISO is 2200, with Auto White Balance and Matrix Metering.

    Amazing detail and bokeh

    Posted by Raghu on July 27, 2012

    This is perhaps the best 35 mm lens there is for a nikon FX DSLR. I find it to be perfect for my D800. Portraits and landscape photos are breathtaking.

    This is by far my favorite Nikkor lens. I own a range of zoom and fast primes, but, the 35G lives on my camera most of the time. I do love 24G and 85G, but for versatility and image quality, I always fall back to this focal length. The 24G is fantastic, but for closeup shots, distortion can get ugly. The 35G has magical bokeh with slightly exaggerated perspective that sets itself apart from the 50 and 85. When I go through the images in my lightroom, I can always pick out the ones shot with the 35G. It is one of Nikon´s true classic, and will always stay in my bag.
