Nikon Nikkor AF 35 mm f/2D

1 June 2009

11. Summary

Pros:
  • compact but quite solid build,
  • very good frame center picture quality,
  • good frame corner picture quality from f/4.0,
  • small chromatic aberration,
  • low distortion,
  • astigmatism well - controlled,
  • few problems with the against the light work,
  • autofocus quick and accurate.
Cons:
  • low frame corner picture quality at f/2.0 and f/2.8,
  • high vignetting on both sensors types (DX and FX),
  • coma- prone.

This lens, like the Canon 1.4/35, can’t be assessed by price. Nikkor 2.0/35 has definitely more advantages than disadvantages and it cooperates well on the D3 and on the D200. At an affordable price, it is especially attractive for the DX sensor reflex cameras owners, being an ideal standard lens. It can teach thinking and framing every beginner photographer and, at the same time, it ensures the picture quality which for many zooms is unattainable.
