D7000 and Nikon 35mm f/1.8 G AF-S DX lens
Oct 27, 2010

I received today my brand new 35mm f/1.8 G and wanted to give it a try.

Just two quick snapshots around the yard that show (in my opinion) how good this camera/lens combo is.

In the first picture, the camera was able to capture the wide tonal range, put aside the upper right corner that was almost aimed at the setting sun.

The clarity of the second picture (bottle) reminds me somehow of the Pentax 43mm Limited (if interested to compare the two please see my post about that lens here http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/read.asp?forum=1036&message=22430330 ). This little 35mm lens is very quick to focus and it surprises me how silent it is.

Between this lens and the 18-105mm, I might be set for a while (yeah, right!).

On a side note, these were processed with ACR 6.3 release candidate. I am still not sure that I prefer its output to what Raw Therapee produces. But ACR is so convenient and RT is so prone to crash that going back to RT is not really an option.
