Nikon's 35mm f/1.8G replicates the role of the classic 50mm prime for DX-format DSLRs. Small, relatively inexpensive and with excellent optics, it's a lens which deserves to be on many a Nikon shooter's shopping list. The built-in autofocus motor ensures compatibility with every Nikon digital SLR.

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.
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.
