  • Nikon 35mm f/2D AF Nikkor

    9 out of 10 points and recommended
    Small, sharp, fast and quite cheap
    Noisy D-series AF

    I use this lens (on a D70) more than any other. There is something very natural about the (52mm equivalent) focal length. Optical performance seems very good to me, though I've never compared it with any of the most expensive Nikkor primes. Still - not a lot of corner softness or vignetting, even wide open, and very little barrel distortion.
