Nikon 35mm f/1.4 G ED AF-S

Check availablity: Adorama, Amazon USA, Amazon UK, B&H, eBay.

Big and heavy professional grade lens with a pricetag to match.

Sharpness is excellent, even wide open. However, there is some vignetting wide open when the lens is used on FX, and some hard to correct moustache distortions.

AF is fast, but not instantaneous. This is a heavy lens, and it pauses slightly before focus locks.

It has an O-ring sealing around the mount to help prevent dust and water from entering the camera.

Comes with bayonet hood HB-59.
