I have been using the Nikkor 35mm 1.8 for over a month now..IT is a sharp, crystal clear lens. No problems. I love how clean my shots are, BUT not as clear and sharp as the Nikkor 50mm 1.4reviewed December 1st, 2010 (purchased for $199)
I would recommend this lens to a beginner to mid-level camera users. It is a good lens...that cost around 199.00. Which is good for Nikon.
But truly who uses this lens?

I have had the Nikkor 50mm 1.4 lens for two years now. I use it for my studio work. Nothing comes close in sharpness, Bokeh, clear shot making..in the Nikon Family of Lens.reviewed December 1st, 2010 (purchased for $300)
The Nikkor 50mm 1.4 is perfect for Studio Work, Head and Body Shots. I am still amazed how clean from 1.4 all the way up..my own photography is now with the 50mm 1.4.
I recommend this lens to all..who wants to shoot stunning pictures. IT out performs the expensive over priced 24-70...16-35... Nothing in Nikkor's line up can touch this beautiful lens.
3 out of 10 points and not recommendedFor DX users who don't expect much from their lensCHEAPLY made.
This is NOT a good lens. Don't buy into the DX hype of this lens. IT is cheaply made, plastic distortion barrel. Cheap glass..and truly way over priced. Distortion rains supreme with this lens. A murky 18 and cloudy 200.reviewed December 1st, 2010 (purchased for $700)
Even their own Nikkor 35mm 1.8 out performs this plastic blunder. The lens also creeps..which was suppose to be fixed with VR2.
I was truly disappointed with how slow the lens is...how loud the lens is..and how it truly performed. A major let down. The only thing was great about this lens was I unloaded quickly..and got my money back.
There are Nikon People out there who sing its praises. And even Reviewers who claim it is great. Never listen to them. They are wrong. Trust me..this lens and along with the VR2 version belong in the trash can.
If you expect dull...and lifeless photography..pick this lens. IF you want crystal clear...sharp images..pick another lens. This plastic blunder is Nikon's worst production.
