p.1 #1 · shooting FX with 35mm 1.8G


Just wondering if anyone is shooting the 35mm 1.8 G with an FX camera and the results their getting, I was in the camera store to pick up a 35mm F2 D and was tempted by the 1.8G. It seems to vignette at about 5.6 but not horribly. I ended buying the 35 f2 D but I have 30 days to go back and switch it for the 1.8 if I decide.

I shot with one for awhile, David. Besides the obvious vignette, the distortion & CA drove me nuts.
Found the 28 f1.8G more to my liking and used that FL in the brewpub music scene trenches when
I wasn't usin' the 50. The 35 f2 D and I never spent much time together, so can't help ya there. GL

+1. You can use it at certain apertures and focal distances, but there's too many limitations.

Tried the 35mm f1.8 on the D3. only works closer up, no go for landscapes or whatnot. 35mm f2 would be more versatile.

Not a single tool is perfect in photography and each has its own limitations. As long as you can work around the limitations, then it's usable. Experimenting is the key.

Works for what I need it to do, but only wide open and decently close focus (on D3). Obviously dreaming about a 1.4G though

I had a 35f2 and shot with it for years, loved it. I sent it into Nikon for a checkup about 2 months ago, problem was it never got there-UPS lost it, So I recently got $200 from UPS. Bought a Like new used one for 270. so it's like I paid 70.00 for a newer lens, my 35 had to be at least 15 years old.

I just purchased the 35mm 1.4g for use with my D500e all I can say is it's one of the sharpest lenses I've ever owned and have no problems with CA or vignetting that lightroom can handle easily. Photozone gave a great review to this lens and actually says it's better than the 24mm 1.4. I just came over to Nikon from Canon and used the Canon 24mm F1.4 quite a bit and can tell you that the Nikon 35 G is better in every way. If you can afford the high price of this lens the optics and usability will be well worth the upgrade.
