p.1 #1 · 35mm f/1.8G FX coming


http://nikonrumors.com/2013/12/16/new-nikon-af-s-nikkor-35mm-f1-8g-fx-lens-to-be-announced-in-early-january.aspx/

Been waiting for this awhile. I thought it was silly that in order to get a fast 1st party 35mm you'd have to settle for the f/2D. Of course they couldn't make a separate 35mm f/1.8G for FX so they had to at least wait until the DX version was "old" enough to be replaced.

My guess on price is $300/$400 range.

Might think about selling off my 1.4G.

Nice, should be a popular one. I personally want a 135/1.8G.

Interesting, although I think it would need to be a good low price, otherwise the Sigma 35mm f1.4 is still a very good choice.
The "new" 1.8G lenses, 28/50/85, have all got a very good reputation, so if it's as good as those it will be a winner.

If this had been on the market a couple years ago, I would have bought it eyes closed. I think it was a ridiculous move not to offer a modern, well priced 35 for the new gen of DSLR's from Nikon

Now I have my Sigma 1.4 and couldn't be happier (if only for the chubby size).

Now if they could introduce another lightweight 20mm f/2.8 and a good 24 f/1.8-f/2.

Me too. Sigma will probably deliver it before Nikon, and with OS.

If a plastic fantastic lens 2/3rds of a stop slower is going to go toe-to-toe with one of the best lenses in the format that costs $700ish I just hope the price tag is reasonable.

That would be very welcome -- though they've generally staggered the wide prime releases at focal lengths that don't directly compete with the f/1.4 versions.

I'd expect it to be more like $500, though.

Yeah, I'd love it, too. The 28/1.8g is great, but my preferred event combo is 35/85, and (despite its weaknesses at wide stops) the 35/2D has served me well. If this remains reasonably lightweight and compact-ish (obviously it will be a lot bigger than the 35/2D), it could be great.

Hopefully they knock it out of the park like the 28/1.8, and not half-ass it like the 50 and 85. The 50 and 85 ain't bad, but you could add $500 to the 28/1.8 and people wouldn't bulk.

I'm guessing it'll be $499. Here to hoping it's a stellar performer. Sigma has been stealing Nikons thunder lately.

I have a 28 1.8 and 85 1.8 and both are just crazy good. If this is anything like those other 1.8s, I'm on board.

Doubt it'll touch the Sigma 35 f1.4 'A' so I'll be stayin' pat, thanks.

Eh, for only 1/3 stop faster than my 35/2, i'll prob skip it....especially for any more than $400....i need a 35 1.4, but the Sigma i'm not sold on (pretty much can't get on board with any sigma lens, after shooting all nikon glass...too much AF issues with every one i've touched), and the Nikon 35/1.4 is too pricy, and slow to focus...

I've had zero issues with buying Sigma in the past few years -- and their 85/1.4 and 150/2.8 are the best Nikon mount lenses available at/around their focal length. I don't have their 35/1.4, though largely because of size/weight, not concerns about quality. I really value how compact and light the 35/2 is, and it serves my purposes fine. If the new lens is even a little bit smaller and cheaper than the 28/1.8G and optically comparable, it will be pretty tempting.

About time! Now Nikon needs to jump on a 16 f/1.8 DX and lots of people will be estatic.

you sound like me before my last attempt at a sigma. Get the dock and you'll be happy, the thirty five is awesome, fine tuning the different focal lenghts is great.

Like many of their non-f/1.4 FX primes it's a long time coming.
Hopefully it won't be overly-bloated in size (but it will, just like the 50/1.8G).
Now if they'd just release:
20/2.8G
24/1.8G
105/2G
135/1.8G
they would have a lot of happy Nikon shooters (though their bank accounts wouldn't be so happy).

It's not always about ponying up -- it would be nice to have a more compact lens in this focal length than the Sigma or Nikon f/1.4.
