    Silent Motor, Sharp,Fast and Clear
    Cheap Plastic Housing. AND truly Who Uses This lens?

    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 1.4

    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?

  • Nikon 50mm f/1.4D AF Nikkor

    EXCELLENT CRYSTAL SHARP LENS! Nothing comes close.

    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 the Nikon Family of Lens.

    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 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.

    For DX users who don't expect much from their lens
    CHEAPLY 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.

    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 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 images..pick another lens. This plastic blunder is Nikon's worst production.

    Sharp, Very Sharp!!!! IT is smooth as Butter.

    The Nikkor 35mm 1.4 G is an outstanding Prime Lens. The performance of this lens is perfect, smooth like butter. I recommend Nikkor 35mm 1.4 G.

    IF you have love using low natural light...This lens is perfect. Used it in Las Vegas at night. Beautiful results.
