The Nikkor AF-S 35 mm f/1.4G is equipped with an ultrasonic autofocus SWM motor so the mechanism is noiseless. Some reservations can be had when it comes to its speed. A fast “prime” of this class should have featured an autofocus working at lightning speed and in the case of the Nikkor running through the whole distance scale takes almost 1 second – an average result at most.

Fortunately it is the only fault we found in this category. The lens didn’t have any front or back focus tendency (both on the D200 and the D3x) and in studio conditions it practically never missed.
