Just ordered a 35 to add with the 24 and the 85. I couldn't resist any longer . Only time will tell if I keep all 3 or break up the mix.


I think you will be happy with the lens. It is very nice, but then I'm partial to that focal length. I haven't got the bug for the 24 yet.

I love the 24 and it has it's place for sure. I also feel most of my shots are inches away from my families face . I will give the 35 a shot. I think it may fill the gap. I cannot imagine selling the 24 or the 85 for that matter. I'm sure this 35 will complete the kit.

OK now that my purchase is paid and locked, let me share with those looking for a 35 1.4G. Gary's Camera & Digital in Indiana (Nikon USA dealer and do not deal grey market) has two more of these for $1679 BNIB. That is not a typo. They are great to deal with. http://garycameradigital.com/top-sellers/nikon-af-s-nikkor-35mm-f1-4g-lens.html I would call just to be safe and to lock the deal.

When I spoke with Mike at Gary's Camera he said he took off the free shipping after my sale. I know he was thinking about asking for a few more dollars and at $1699, I still would not hesitate a second. I was shocked that he had 3 in stock. Snatch them up people, lets go

I bought a 24 1.4G from Gary's Camera (Ebay) and they're great to deal with. They're also an authorized Nikon dealer.

Congrats on the 35G! I envy you recent pick ups.....

Thanks JR. I'm a little excited myself. Glad I got her as it seems the Nikon prices are on the rise.

Shipped! A great deal. I know he raised the price to $1699 and took away the free ship but still a great deal. I was very fortunate to get that deal.

I have only taken a few quick sample shots with it so far as I wanted to make sure it was spot on. What I can say is that I really like the focal length so far. I take more pics of the family than anything else so it is very useful. I don't have to touch the lens to their noses like I do with the 24 1.4G when I want to get close . I'm looking forward to comparison shots on a tripod of the 24, 35 and 85 to see where each lens prevails. I hope to do this soon with my D3s. I will post more when I get some more time. Will I sell one or the other? Who knows. I don't plan on it as they each have their ideal place. Only time will tell.
