I picked one up and I'm not really impressed. At all.

So yeah - faster, sharper, lighter, smaller, better IQ, cheap. Totally pointless.

The only knock I would put on the 35mm is that in the Sony and Nikon systems, for similar money you get f1.8.

The Nikkor also has a metal mount instead of plastic last I checked.  Isn't it a little more than 200$ though?  I forgot.  It has been a long time since I was looking at DX primes.

Cheers.
