dpreview conclusion

The 35mm F1.8G DX delivers impressive performance. It produces finely detailed images at all apertures (although with somewhat low contrast wide open), focuses quickly and accurately, and handles well in a small, light package. As such, it deserves to be on many a Nikon shooter's shopping list for its winning combination of high image quality, large maximum aperture and low price.

Highly Recommended
Good for

Everyday use on Nikon's DX-format APS-C DSLRs, where this sharp and inexpensive 35mm becomes a useful 'standard'.

Not so good for

Shooting wide open, where CA can be an issue, even with in-camera JPEG correction.

Some buyers will treasure the extra f-stop of lens speed and the additional selective-focusing opportunities that the wider aperture brings.
