Sample Shots

Ok, finally here're some sample shots taken with the Nikon D200 (converted RAWs via RawShooter Essentials 2006). Sorry for the rather dull images but the weather was rather bad at the time.

Verdict

The Nikkor AF 35mm f/2D is a very decent performer and a worthy standard lens on APS-C DSLRs. The resolution figures are very impressive especially at medium aperture settings where the performance is as good as it gets on the D200. At wide-open aperture the borders could be a little better but that's typical for lenses in this range. The level of vignetting is a little on the high side at f/2 but negligible beyond. There's a moderate degree of barrel distortions but nothing to worry about in the field. Combined with the good build quality and fast AF the lens is surely one of the can't lose options in the Nikon lineup.
