Nikon 32mm F1.2 or 35mm F1.4 (or 1.8)
Feb 12, 2014

About the only prime I'm missing from my little Nikon 1 arsenal is a medium FL portrait prime. I was looking at the little Nikon 1 32mm F1.2. Trouble is, not only are they expensive, but also relatively hard to get hold of.

I was wondering what people opinions were of using either a Sigma Art 35mm F1.4 (similar price) or a little Nikon 35mm F1.8 with the FT1 adaptor (which I already own) ? My thinking is that I could also use these lenses on my D7100 and D800 ?

Trouble is, never having used a 32mm F1.2, I'm not sure if the quality and speed of focus is better going down the Nikon 1 lens route, or if it's the same (or near enough) with the bigger lenses. I appreciate the Nikon 1 lens will be the faster lens (aperture wise).

Anyone ever looked into this ?
