Zurab Kiknadze, Lens, Accessories and Software Marketing Manager at Nikon Europe, said: “35mm lenses have won a special place in the hearts of numerous street photographers, documentary makers and photojournalists since the early days of photography. Following the recent update of the professional lens lineup with the AF-S NIKKOR 35mm f/1.4 we decided to give the same gift to amateurs.

In developing the lens for today’s high-definition DSLRs, we have dramatically improved the optical design and equipped the new lens with a brighter f/1.8 aperture, all at an affordable price that will allow even more photographers to experience the delights of 35mm lenses that have rightfully taken their place in classic photography history.”

Classic design, classic focal length

The new AF-S NIKKOR 35mm f/1.8 is great for any subject or scene, from busy streets to interior portraits and from daytime landscapes to nighttime cities. Appreciated for their superb framing performance, 35mm lenses have always been a cornerstone of the art of photography. For photographers capturing the energy and rhythm of city streets, the lens’ medium-wide field of view will help create an emotional perspective that moves the viewer into the thick of things.

Portrait photographers seeking to convey the relationship between their subject and its surroundings can take close-up shots that will still include background context. Large aperture, versatility and compact size will not let you leave this NIKKOR lens at home with its excellent optical design and lightweight.

Large aperture and clarity

Large f/1.8 aperture allows you to control the depth of field to clearly separate your subject from the background. As with all NIKKOR fixed focal length lenses, special attention has been paid to visual functionality:

A rounded aperture and gradual blur from the focus point to the background, resulting in smooth, rounded bokeh.

The larger aperture lets you shoot with shorter shutter speeds, get crisp results in low light, and enjoy a brighter viewfinder image for more precise framing.

Renowned NIKKOR quality

Designed for modern high-definition sensors, the new AF-S NIKKOR 35mm f/1.8 provides stunning clarity and contrast across the frame. Thanks to an optical design borrowed from the professional model AF-S NIKKOR 35mm f/1.4 , point light sources are displayed with minimal backlighting, allowing you to take stunning shots of night landscapes.

The optical design consists of 11 elements in 8 groups and includes one aspherical lens and one low-dispersion ED glass lens to reduce chromatic aberration and produce sharp contrast images. Thanks to Nikon’s silent ultrasonic SWM motor, autofocus is smooth, quiet and fast. The minimum focus distance is 0.25 m.

Ready for the road

Lightweight, compact and affordable, the AF-S NIKKOR 35mm f/1.8 Worthy of a place in any amateur photographer’s luggage. Optimized for use with Nikon FX-format cameras, the AF-S NIKKOR 35mm f/1.The 8 is also suitable for photographers using Nikon DX-format cameras who want a lens for capturing classic images with stunning color and contrast.

AF-S NIKKOR 35mm f/1.The 8G comes with a CL-0915 padded lens case and HB-70 lens cap.
