Nikon 35mm 1.8s seems to be popular with Wedding Photographers

On this site it is the lens with the most pictured, only 2nd to the infamous 58mm 1.4g. Is it representative of how good a lens is suited to this particular genre? I am not sure.

In general when I researched this lens, I found quite polarizing opinions.

This reviewer very much pretty much loves the falloff the 35mm 1.8s:

I agree the falloff is really quite nice from the pictures he posted.

Cameralabs,dpreview or mirrorless comparison pointed out that with brigther highlights the bokeh gets a little bit nervous. It is visible for sure.

What is super interesting is, that Haruo Sato seems to have been involed in creating this lens according to this site: https://cameragossip.github.io/nikon-lens-patents.html

He is the designer of the infamous 35 / 58mm 1.4g for F-Mount which had polarizing opinions as well.

I used the 1.8s for a while and personally I can agree with both sides. The bokeh highlights bother me, but the focus falloff can be really beautiful. Rendering wise I can definitely say it is a league above the typical 1.8 lens.

Super interested in your experience or opinions.
