Pros: Sharp, light & compact, big value for money

Cons: Nothing relevant considered the price

Opinion: I bought this lens with my first camera (Nikon D200) to have the best value for money. Unfortunately this 35mm lens didn't like my D200 and I was disatifisied by the pictures, especially in terms of colours and sharpness. Since I bought my D90, I gave this lens a second chance and it was love at first sight! I thing this lens delivers the best performance with CMOS sensors. So, if you don't like the lens, consider a problem of machine coupling. Some people says about manual focus ring, as I always use the autofocus (as 95% of people) I just keep on the light hood mounted flipped, in that way I avoid to ruin the body of the lens. For that amount of money, this lens gives you the best value and result! Perfect for learning and having an equivalent 50mm on a dx sensor.

Pros: Price, Performance, Size, Weight, Availability, small 52mm filters

Cons: No focus distance window

Opinion: I believe that Nikon is unique and unusual offering a real option for offering a fastish standard lens solely for DX use - and in them doing so, in a very well performing and quite well made compact package, has made this lens a really big seller for Nikon. Otherwise, we'd only have the Sigma EX, or Art (now) 30mm f1.4, which I was wanting to buy but there are so many of these little Nikons around, I was able to get a mint used one with lenshood, from a reputable seller with 6 months warranty - for just over 100 pounds sterling. That's the price of one Lee filter! There are no issues over image quality, even at f1.8 it is good to go, lower contrast in the corners and edges might make it look less sharp wide open and unlike those Sigma's, the edges always hold up well along with the very sharp centre. And none of those silly back focus issues that seem to still plague Sigma. On the D7000, it is a nice handling package, you can shoot freely and easily and the AF is good, though not lightning fast. Manual focus is OK too. My main gripe - and the reason why I haven't bought one up to now, is the lack of a distance scale. Big deal, eh? Well, if you're shooting stars and want infinity or at night generally and the viewfinder is too dark to focus, then a distance scale can really help, though with modern polycarbonate lenses, the accuracy of marked infinity is often variable. My uses will be for a back up fast standard to keep in the pocket to use alongside my usual standard zoom, for night time city street shots, live music and interiors of churches and such. At f1.8 and focussing from about 2m and closer, there can be a good bokeh effect, it's not the smoothest of blurs but then it's not really designed for such, especially also due to its focal length. One day, I'll buy the excellent Sigma Art 35mm f1.4, to use on both FX and DX, but in the meantime, this cheap and cheerful little lens is a good substitute. I score 9/10, the point taken off mainly due to that lack of distance scale.

Pros: Small, compact, light, sharp too.

Cons: Difficult to fit a lens hood, or vignette or little serves, including that Nikon, the least worse is an old Cokin squared with Ring 52.

Opinion: I bought it just came out and after 88 reviews and many years of use, what can be added? Meanwhile I used it on a heap of SLR, D40, D80, D3100, D7000 and now D500. On all the focus is accurate and quick, on the D80 perhaps the fastest, on the D500 the most accurate.. I also tried it duly cropped on FF, D610 and Df. It's better on D610, 10MP high-quality units. The main use was the portrait, the figure on the American plane (cut to the knee to be clear) and has never disfigured, fans of "Sfocus" will not be enthusiastic about the aperture 2.8 but the pastiness of the background is not bad at all. The second use were the panoramas, distorts a nothing and then you can "paste" more shots with interesting perspective and scenic effects. As "macro" I used it a little.. It should be for a macro the main use, but I used it more in the range 40cm-a meter, it is perfect for many uses, not least the food industry. Although old man and with thousands of shots made, seems like new, but not because I was attentive and manic, but because it is very robust.

Pros: Optical quality, blurred, size, durable.

Cons: Autofocus, lack of distance window.

Opinion: Nikon's policy regarding the DX compartment is insane, it builds the best DSLR in the industry and has no fixed lens dedicated to these machines, other than that. How to build magnificent sports cars and assemble only spare wheels. The lens is valid, a bit ' long for my taste (from 30 to 33mm would have been a true "normal"), on the 24mpx sufficiently sharp even at full aperture (better if at F/2) to become excellent at the intermediate diaphragms. It's also light and compact, very important points for me. I used it under a snowfall for a couple of hours (with snow melting) and did not report any damage or condensation inside, so it also seems quite resistant to atmospheric agents. The real big problem is the focus: mounted on D7100 the number of photos with wrong focus is embarrassing. It does not depend on errors of calibration, simply the coupled machine-objective decides to focus precisely when it pleases. I suspect that this is another "little gift" of the Nikon policy of relegating non-professional performance to APSC (even with random errors generated via the machine's software), to bring users to move to full format. Reason for this suspicion? Mounted on an old D700 (which still has an outstanding autofocus), the AF is not mistaken for a shot. At the same time, with third party lenses the D7100 tends to make very few focus errors. Frankly embarrassing!
