The Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 35mm f/1.8G is a lens manufactured by Nikon for use on Nikon DX format digital SLR cameras. It provides a field of view on a DX format camera similar to that of a normal lens on a 35mm film format camera.

Introduction[edit]

Nikon announced the lens on 9 February 2009.[1] It is the first prime lens released by Nikon specifically designed for Nikon DX format DSLR cameras that is both rectilinear and supports autofocus on the Nikon D40, Nikon D40X, Nikon D60, Nikon D3000, Nikon D3100, Nikon D3200, Nikon D3300, Nikon D5000, Nikon D5100, Nikon D5200 and Nikon D5300. The first prime lens released for the DX format was the AF DX Fisheye-Nikkor 10.5mm f/2.8G ED.[2]

Features[edit]

  • 35mm focal length (approximately field of view equivalent to a 50mm lens used on a 35mm format camera) Although the field of view changes, the focal length does not, it is still 35mm.
  • Compact silent wave autofocus motor with full-time manual override
  • Nikon F-lens mount for use with Nikon DX format DSLRs (use on Nikon FX format DSLRs will cause vignetting)
  • Rear-focussing elements allow for a non-rotating lens front, enabling easier usage of rotating filters such as circular polarisers
  • Dust gasket around lens mount to reduce dust entering when lens and camera are attached

Construction[edit]

  • 8 lens elements in 6 groups
  • 1 hybrid aspherical element
  • 52mm filter thread for widely distributed 52mm filters

Target market[edit]

The lens is intended to be an inexpensive prime lens for owners of Nikon DX format DSLR cameras.[3]
