Pros: Sharpness to any aperture, solid construction, exceptional mechanics. BEAUTIFUL

Cons: The price of used, justified by quality.

Opinion: I received as a gift This lens from my uncle, after the first use opening the file I realized that this lens is not good but excellent is able to solve quietly over 24 megapixels. On long exposures exposing to F8 the Niki said of the file is sometimes too sharp enough to force to slightly lower the clarity in the lightroom. Now I own it I understand why a good used specimen is around € 200

Pros: lightness and sharpness of images

Cons: I can't tell

Opinion: recovered from the optical park of my old Nikon, almost by mistake I started to use it with the D850 ....... I'm not a great technician and my opinion is from "pushed amateur", but I had the distinct feeling that this optics can safely withstand the comparison with other and more emblazoned lenses. I've had and still have next-generation Zeiss and Nikon lenses so I can make some obvious comparisons. I highly recommend it, if you are not too obsessed with the lack of AF and the use of manual exposure ....... here it goes the old-fashioned way.

Pros: Construction, optical and mechanical quality, character

Cons: Wrong to compare it to today's optics

Opinion: Bought used at a negligible price the 35mm F2 is a lens of all respect as long as they accept the typical optical characteristics of a project almost forty years ago. I mean it would be frustrating to expect the sharpness, the colors or the contrast of the modern superperformance optics. It is a matter of choice that must be made consciously. The Ai-S Series I don't think you can compare it to the D, G, E series. They are different worlds despite their apparent closeness. The 35 F2 is never as they say a "blade", even at intermediate diaphragms. If we compare it to the 35 F 1.8 G, the 35 F 1.4, the Tamron or Sigma there is no history. They are slow designed and built in a very different way. This lens is soft, (in the positive sense of the term) with a contrast and natural colors without ever "shouting" and showing the muscles as do many recent goals. I do not dwell much on the well-known aspects that relate to the relationship between central sharpness and fall at the edges or on the acclaimed aberrations, distortions or unpredictable lateral "ghosts". What I think is interesting to note is that the optics has a peculiar character, typical of the optics of those years (less contrast, natural images with details "not cropped", blurred delicate, non-aggressive colors) but I understand who cares Far. The "vintage" flavour is obviously not only related to the design of another era but it also highlights comparing images taken between this 35 and a current one. The choice I think should be made especially bearing in mind this aspect. And then tastes are tastes. It is undoubtedly a lens that brings his years very well on his shoulders. For me very recommended!

Pros: clear, solid, strictly mf

Cons: that Nikon does not do it anymore

Opinion: I acquired this vision many years ago, even at the time of the film, by a photojournalist who used it both around the world to do interviews for famous newspapers and for services on motocross races. He said that the 35 mm f2 and the 180 mm f2.8 were according to him (at that time) the best Nikon lenses. He was right. The 35 mm nowadays will also be vintage, but it is incisive and clear even in the pixel world. After half of the life spent around the world and in the mud of the motocross tracks, and been knocked to the ground a thousand times, mine is bruised, scuffed, with the small fork made to rebuild and the front glass rigatissimo, but the rings fire and diaphragms turn that is a pleasure, so that does not make me want to change it, because it still offers incredible images.

Pros: extreme sharpness, constructive quality, fights the comparisons with his great-grandchildren without fear

Cons: a little 'soft at f2, resistance to the backlight in line with the optics of the past.

Opinion: Premise: rnil mio is the K version, then modified AI, but it does not change substantially anything in the following AI and AIS versions. I also had the AIS, identical performance, including anti-glare.rnThis 35mm / 2 I can talk about it for real "with good reason", I have since 1976, it was my first Nikkor purchased together with a beautiful Nikomat FT2.rnPoi I used it on F3, on D90, on D700 and now I mount it on D800.rnThe thing that has always amazed me is its sharpness, I compared it with a bag of 28mm 35mm 50mm 55mm 60mm and he has always come out of it well high and almost always winner.rnOra I also have the 35mm / 1.8 AFS G and I must say that from f2.8 keeps a bang! In short, a little 'for affection, a little' for its objective qualities, I adore.rnWe now come to criticism: rn- in the backlight is not at the level of the current optics, produces some tree of Natalern-the focus is discreet, but not creamy as today vorremmorn- a f2 is usable but a little 'soft rnpoca thing anyway since, from f2% 2C8, produces very clear and well-contrasted images, in short, crisp even with decidedly demanding sensors such as the 36mp of the D800rnFor these reasons and for affection I gave him a nice 10!
