Verdict

The Nikkor AF-S DX 35mm f/1.8 G ist able to deliver very sharp pictures wide open already. Vignetting is quite well controlled for a dedicated fast DX lens, distortion is a bit higher than expected, though. This is also true for CAs, which can easily be removed in post processing, though.

The bokeh, one of the primary aspects for a fast prime, is a bit nervous wide open, but well developed and generally pleasing slightly stopped down.

The build quality of the lens is quite good, actually much better than you'd expect given its quite low price. However, allthough it's sonic wave driven, the AF is not really a speed demon.

Nonetheless the lens performs on a very high level and is a welcome addition the limited range of lenses that can be used as normal primes on DX cameras.
