Nikkor 35mm f2 AF-D on FX
Jun 7, 2010

Hello, how many are using the Nikkor 35mm f2 AF-D on FX?

All the reviews I've read say that it's not good at 2.0-2.8, and on FX is worse ...

I have a D700 and I'd like something wider than 50mm for street photography and groups of people (50mm is too tight, but 24mm distort too much people)

The rumours talk about an AF-S 35mm f1.4, but it probably is going to be too big and expensive for me (it seems about 1500 euros). And I've just bought the 200mm f2 VR (+monopod+RRS foot+...), so my wife would kill me and sell all the lenses, cameras and my own body to a junk yard

What about the Zeiss ZF2 35mm f2? Do you miss the AF? At least in Spain is almost three times more expensive than the Nikkor, is it worth it?

Best regards.
