Re: Nikon 35 mm F/1.8 DX vs 35 mm F/2.0 lens

The 35D is a landscape only lens for me at f8, at which task it is much better than the 35 1.8, i.e. no CA and tack sharp edge to edge.  It is mushy wide open and will not autofocus on your camera. The 35G has seriously bad bokeh wide open, so you have to stop it down a bit for best results if the background matters.
