Nikon 35mm f/1.4 AIS Nikkor User Reviews
10 out of 10 points and recommended by Chop (7 reviews)Great normal, fast lens. Classic image for B&Wsofter wide open
A little soft wide open but from 2.8 to f11 it's very good. Nice bokeh and contrast. A classic Nikon lens. I use it for my normal lens and it's fast for low light and classic B&W image quality. Nikon has been making it forever and that's a statement to its popularity.reviewed October 16th, 2012 (purchased for $650)
8 out of 10 points and recommended by dugong5pm (52 reviews)fast f/1.4, build quality, compact, takes 52mm filteroutdated
a photojournalist's standard.. like in 30 years ago. Nowadays, many has overrated this lens as its "legendary" performance.reviewed October 11th, 2012 (purchased for $250)
Yes, this lens has a great design. Small, light, sturdy, fast & delivers good performance too. It had created world's greatest press photos many years ago. Today, I prefer the 35/1.8G (DX) for usability. Images are a little bit soft wide open and it has a visible CA.
I got this lens along with my F3HP, which was a great pair for almost anything. I wouldn't use it with my digital bodies.

I would not buy if shooting APS-C for stills, especially if subject is in motion.reviewed June 23rd, 2011
Would buy for film, or video, or perhaps FX.

10 out of 10 points and recommended by Peter Hovmand (1 reviews)One of the sharpest lenses, very robust, best Nikon quality?
Absolutely my favorite lens. Super sharp, super fast, perfect for both full frame and DX. I really don't have anything negative to say about this lens. No autofocus, just makes it more charming. Cheaper than the AF 35 1.4, just makes it irresistible :)reviewed April 18th, 2011 (purchased for $900)
8 out of 10 points and recommended by DavidNJ (3 reviews)Sharp imageFair color rendition
It is a sharp lens but a bit behind the other Nikons in color rendition. Well made and fast. However in practice I end up using the 50/1.2, 28/2, and 24/2 more than this one.reviewed March 13th, 2011 (purchased for $500)
Note that it is still in production
