The Nikon AF-S Nikkor 35mm f/1.4G is a wide-angle lens that's sharp and captures a lot of light, but it's quite expensive.

  • +

    Excellent center sharpness. Wide aperture gathers a lot of light. Solid build quality. Good close focus capability.

  • -

    Some edge softness at wider apertures. Mild barrel distortion. Expensive.

In short, this is a highly corrected lens that is likely to satisfy even the most discerning users. Nikon users whose pockets are less deep can choose between the 35mm f/1.8 DX lens, for around £160, and the 35mm f/2 D version for about £260.

    The high price

3 June 2015

If you're looking for a value buy, this isn't it. This one's for the high rollers.

Buy this lens only for 35mm film or FX. This 35mm f/1.4 G AF-S is a very expensive professional FX and 35mm film lens. It costs ten times as much as the 35mm f/1.8 DX , which does exactly the same thing on DX.

    I'd be very careful not to cross-thread the plastic filter thread.

Last month we tested the industry’s least expensive 35mm f/1.4 lens (the $500 Rokinon 35mm AS UMC). This month, we shift to the opposite end of the pricing spectrum to one of the most expensive: Nikon’s $1,800 full-frame 35mm f/1.4G lens.

20 June 2011

Handling and features This wide angle lens from Nikon costs around £1300 and sports a bright f/1.4 maximum aperture, silent internal focusing and nano-crystal coatings to help control ghosting and flare.

For this lens, it comes down to essentially one qualification. If you're a Nikon shooter who needs the absolute fastest 35mm lens, either for light-gathering ability or for the ability to put the background way out of focus, then for $1,800 it's either the Carl Zeiss or the Nikon 35mm Æ’/1.4G.

For those looking for a wide angle lens with a fast maximum aperture could do a lot worse than this 35mm f/1.4 from Nikon. Sharpness levels in the centre are extremely high from maximum aperture, it's well built and focuses fast.

  • +

    Very sharp in the centre of the frame, Silent focusing, Low distortion, Very low CA, Highly resistant to flare, Durable weather-sealed magnesium construction

  • -

    Falloff of illumination towards the corners at wide apertures, Sharpness towards the edges of the frame falls behind the performance in the centre of the frame

The Nikon AF-S 35mm f/1.4 G is able to deliver impressive results on our DX test camera, however it is not without flaws. The image center is very sharp right from the largest aperture, but the borders and corners are quite soft wide open.

It took Nikon a while to get into gear regarding their fast primes, but at least in case of the AF-S 35/1.4 G the result is impressive and was worth the wait. The image center is very sharp right from the largest aperture, the borders and corners follow only slightly behind and offer very good...

Small, light... the perfect balance between focusing on your subject and engaging the background to tell the full story. It's an amazing lens. I was hesitant. The cost is substantial but anything this good is. I went back and forth and back and forth until I closed my eyes and swiped the card.

The image quality of this lens is great. Sharpness, contrast are very good straight from the maximim aperture. Bokeh is good too. Unfortunately there is rather a high amount of CA. The auto focus speed is fast enough, but not as fast as the 24-70mm f/2.8G.

I tested this lens on the Nikon D800. The lens is super sharp, but was designed with a huge amount of field curvature. This means that for landscapes/cityscapes and other far-away subjects, you have to stop down to past f/8.0 to get sharp edges on the D800.

8 March 2016

The requirement was for a fast mid range lens, relatively unobtrusive, for environmental portraits, occasional landscape & a walkabout lens that is robust and weather sealed. Potentially replacing 50mm f1.4G which I find too tight too frequently.

    Rugged, Sharp Focus, Strong Construction

6 July 2015

I've had the 35mm f/1.4G for a couple of years and still enjoy using it as when I first bought it. I love the smooth bokeh when aperture is wide open though there's color fringing on the out of focus portion of an image, it doesn't take away from the exceptional sharpness and clarity in detail it...

3 July 2015

i purchased this lens to use doing Street Photography because it's less obtrusive than a 24-70. I have not regretted that decision. The sharpness and Bokeh are phenomenal and coupled with to 800E's resolution make this easily one of the best lenses Nikon has ever made.

29 June 2015

This professional series lens is often the choice of those working in both studio and in-field environments. The sharpness and colour reproduction that this lens offers are astounding as is it's build quality. The price is obviously reflective of the camera's position in the Nikon lens line up.

25 December 2014

This lens is perfect for interior low light situations. Below is a photo taken by candle light with a Nikon D4 camera body. The shutter speed is 1/125 of a second, the aperture is f/1.4, the ISO is 2200, with Auto White Balance and Matrix Metering.

Great lens, replaced the 24-70 F2.8 for a lot of uses. Much better than the LensTip review would indicate.

    Great build quality Sharp Nice bokeh Consistent autofocus results

    Relatively slow autofocus Chromatic aberrations

Although expensive for a 35mm lens this Nikkor is worth it. It's sharp from f1.4 (centre) with the edges catching up from about f5.6 onwards. Colour reproduction is excellent and although the lens barrel is polycarbonate it still feels very well made.
