Our review

The Nikon Z 35mm F1.8 S is a solid medium-wideangle lens for the Z series, which offers excellent sharpness and pleasant handling characteristics on the Z6 and Z7. Low light fans might miss a wider aperture, and optically, the 35mm cannot compete with its (cheaper) cousin the Z 50mm f1.8 S, but for Nikon Z shooters that need wide-aperture sharpness, the Z 35mm F1.8 S is definitely worth looking at.

Good for: Low-light or wide-aperture fans that need sharp images at fast apertures

Not so good for: Portrait fans who might be bothered by the colored fringing in out of focus areas, those requiring the absolute fastest autofocus, video shooters looking for linear focus response
