The AF-S DX NIKKOR 35mm f/1.8G is optimised to produce stunning images with our DX-format DSLRs, delivering a quality that you’d expect from a prime lens. It achieves excellent sharpness, coupled with gentle background blurs that are perfect for gorgeous portraits and close-ups. A wide maximum aperture of f/1.8 offers amazing low-light performance, making it a versatile performer for a wide range of photography.
The wide f/1.8 maximum aperture allows you to make the most of available light, resulting in stunning images in any lighting condition. The Aspherical lens and Extra-low Dispersion glass elements virtually eliminate ghosting and flare – giving you exceptional contrast and definition indoors or outdoors, from morning until night. For quick and quiet autofocusing, the lens features our Silent Wave Motor (SWM) and Rear Focusing system. A handy M/A focus mode allows you to manually fine-tune the focus to create soft, dream-like images.
