Just wondering if there would be a significant advantage to upgrading from the DX version. I've been pretty happy with it on my d7000 but wouldn't mind keeping FX primes (I have the 50mm as well) and also leaving me the option to go full frame in the future.

At $600, its 3x the price of the DX version which (as mentioned) is a little high. On the other hand for the FX shooter, its a far cry from the price of the 35mm 1.4


You may as well wait until you need an FX 35 as long as the DX serves your needs now.

Being that the 35mm if my favorite focal length, I am excited that Nikon is finally producing this lens. However, having gone through two Sigma 35 (too inconsistent) and currently owning the 35 1.4g, I don't see a need to change. I can't wait the see a real world review.

Reading through the thread, it seems many people are indeed excited about the lens ... maybe not ecstatic, but interested and glad to see Nikon offering it.

I'd be happy to see something better than my old 35/2 AF-D, but not as huge as the f1.4 versions.

Let me see if I've got this right...$600 and no Nano ?!
Man, I'd want dinner and a couple of BJ's for that kinda coin.
My Sigma 'A' looks better and better every day. Just sayin'

why? did you design this lens?
The thing is, you can get a 28 1.8G with NANO for about $500 used, which is a better value.

the more I use my 50 1.8 G for $200 the more I LOVE it...have and had lenses 10 times the cost that don't produce as sharp...and I use it as a 35 by taking a few steps back

I think these F1.8 primes are brilliant. High quality optics, modest size and price.

I cancelled my 35mm 1.8g FX order twice and finally decided to buy a Nikon 28mm1.8g refurb from Adorama. I hope its sharp as they say it is. Should play nicely along my 50 1.8g :0

I resisted the Siggy 35 heroically. However, Amazon offered me one at 699 and my resolve failed. It failed miserably. My only problem is that this purchase has apparently unleashed an ice age in Chicago and environs. Now I have no need of a Nikon 35.

right, but sometimes you don't have the real estate to move backwards, especially if shooting in tight quarters on the street. I do agree about the 50mm -- its an excellent lens.

I would be very excited about it if I hadn't just found a good copy of the Sigma 35.

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


I'd rather have a 135mm f/2.8G, f/1.8 would be heavy at that focal length.
