... in FX mode It's pretty darn sharp in the center but not so much on the edges. The slight vignetting can be removed completely in Lightroom. So far, it's a gem for $200.

That's not a 'test'...

Go out in bright light for a landscape shot at f8... hehe

Wait, that's the extent of the vingetting at f/1.8?

Pretty impressive.

I love mine on my d3....personally the vignette doesnt bother me too much..i will note that at further focus distances it does vignette a lot worse than up close...

I will need to switch back to DX mode in that case. lol

It was at F2 but all vignetting can be removed in Lightroom. I'll do a test at smaller aperture and post it later (before and after vignette removal).

I made an FX lens correction profile for use in LT and PS which may help.

Read here

It also corrects barrel distortion and chromatic aberration.

The D800 deserves better Tried the 35 DX'er on my D700/D3 and the CA and
distortion were intolerable...not sure, but there MIGHT be a law against goin' cheap!

hahaha... yeah distortion is going to be annoying. At least this will buy me some time to save for the 35mm f1.4.

If I had to shoot a DX lens on the D800 it would be the 40 Micro

You may be able to correct some vignetting at certain apertures, but you can't correct it all. If you need a cheap 35 you'd do much better with the 35/2 AF-D.

it is a fantastic lens on FX at close range, like 6-3', even on film. But after that, use the 35mm F2 AF-D or 35mm 1.4 AF-G.

DPReview did a quick FX test in their 35/1.8 review. The usefulness of this lens is regretfully limited.
On Canon, hacks like this crop up (pardon the pun) all the time since Canon has the 1D series with their 1.3x crop. Lots of nominally APS-C lenses have been found to be compatible with APS-H. Some of them even work seamlessly. It's been great fun trying weird stuff like this.

BS. I use one all the time in FX mode on my D700, and it's perfectly usable. If you stop it down much past f/4, yes - there is more vignetting- but I don't buy fast primes to stop them down.

Seriously. I have a D700 and this lens is the one that's on it the most of the time. I shoot at 1.8, but when needed I use ND. I can't say enough good things about this lens.

Never said you can't use it, but it does seem to get worse vignetting the farther you focus. Which means it's not for every use.

It does work really nice with the d800 auto image area feature, 16mp DX mode.

A few more shots. I love this lens, but my Nikon 35mm f1.4 is on its way!
