35mm prime. A desert-island lens for many. Wide enough to nail the view. Shallow enough to draw out subjects. Fast enough to make the impossible possible. And so sharp...just utter unwavering sharpness. In reimagining this classic lens for the new Z system, we may very well have perfected it.

Street spirit

Find the beauty. Set the story. The versatility afforded by the 35mm focal length gives you the freedom to tell more. Go wide to capture the scene without sacrificing intimacy. Or get in close to explore the emotion in a glance.

How wide is your eye?

The ultra-wide Nikon Z mount enables your NIKKOR Z lens to capture more light across the entire frame. Combined with the short distance between mount and sensor, light fall off at the edges of the frame is significantly reduced. The result is incredible detail—all the way to the edge of the frame.

Frame every detail

The superior resolving power of this lens enables every component of a scene to be faithfully reproduced. Capture more detail and reveal truer colours, all the way to the edge—and even when you shoot wide open.


Superior reproduction of point light sources, such as streetlights at night, is achieved by minimising sagittal coma flare. Point light sources appear as fine rounded points, even at the edges of the image.


Two ED glass elements and three aspherical lens elements ensure crisp, brilliant images with rich colour and deep contrast. Peripheral light falloff is controlled to retain brightness across the frame.


Nikon’s anti-reflective Nano Crystal Coat reduces ghosting and flare for greater image clarity, even in backlit conditions. Or when shooting scenes with numerous direct light sources in the frame.

Patience plus speed equals genius

You’re patient enough to wait for the shot. Nikon’s multi-focusing system and multiple AF drives ensure this lens is fast enough to catch it when it comes. However fast it comes.

Smooth, silent, precise

AF is smooth and practically silent, which makes this lens ideal for shooting movies as well as stills. The lens’ electromagnetic diaphragm ensures precise exposures during high-speed bursts.

Always sharp

High-speed, large-capacity data transfer between lens and camera enables superb distortion compensation for incredible edge-to-edge sharpness. Floating lens elements ensure precise focus at close distances.

Any light

This lens uses in-camera Vibration Reduction to let you shoot at shutter speeds up to five stops slower than otherwise possible. Capture clearer photos as daylight fades or film scenes without the unwanted effects of camera shake.

Take control

The wide, knurled control ring allows beautifully exact, intuitive operation. When shooting in AF mode, you can assign ISO or exposure-compensation settings to the control ring. When shooting in Manual Focus, the control ring can be used as a focus ring. Focus shifts according to how quickly or slowly you turn the ring. You get sharp control over your point of focus and filming close-ups is easier.

A compelling sense of depth

Smooth, creamy bokeh. Spectacular sharpness. Combined with the nuanced shadows and detailed highlights achieved by your Nikon Z camera, you can create an incredible sense of dimension. Whether you’re shooting photos or movies.

Exquisite bokeh

The f/1.8 aperture and rounded 9-blade diaphragm enable creamy, natural-looking bokeh. Highlights are reproduced as gentle points. You get beautifully smooth results, even if you stop the aperture down a little.

Artistry at any distance

The lens’ multi-focusing system ensures your point of focus is rendered sharply even when shooting at close distances. Highlights are reproduced as gentle points.

Cinematic beauty

Shoot exceptional full-frame 4K video footage with beautifully shallow depth of field. This lens gets you closer to gestures that reveal. Eyes that tell. And backdrops that give context.

Quiet on set

The near-silent stepping motor allows the quietest moments to deliver full emotional impact. And with a silent control ring that lets you pull focus with absolute precision, nothing will distract from your tensest scenes.


Focus breathing is all but eliminated, enabling reliable composition of expressive shots. Smooth, stable aperture control delivers natural exposure changes throughout the scene.

Any street. Any weather.

Your Nikon Z camera and this compact prime are built to capture the action of the streets. Every movable part of the lens barrel is sealed to protect from dust and water droplets. A fluorine coating actively repels water, dust, and dirt without compromising image quality.

First launches of the Nikon Z system show that in this case the producers are going to follow similar tactics. It's really splendid that several interesting f/1.8 primes were added to that system so soon, especially that prices of new full frame mirrorless instrumets are usually quite steep; if...


Fitted to the Z7 camera body, this lens is great for street photography, being fast, weather-resistant and providing wide enough coverage to encompass some of the subjects’ environment while enabling the photographer to get reasonably close to subjects.

DP Review

The Nikon Z 35mm F1.8 S is a solid medium-wideangle lens for the Z series, which offers excellent sharpness and pleasant handling characteristics on the Z6 and Z7. Low light fans might miss a wider aperture, and optically, the 35mm cannot compete with its (cheaper) cousin the Z 50mm f1.8 S, but for...

PC Magazine

The Nikon Nikkor Z 35mm f/1.8 S is a sharp, light prime lens for Nikon Z cameras that's built well and delivers excellent images, but is on the pricey side.

Camera Jabber

Nikon’s full-frame Z-series f/1.8 primes are very impressive as a group and the Nikkor Z 35mm F1.8 S, which was the first to be introduced, makes a great addition to your kit bag.

Well I thought this may be an answer. To what you may ask, well too much fiddling with the the focal length. You know the zoom this zoom that too much indecision. The 35mm focal length is ideal slightly wide but not too wide and because of this it makes you think about what you are doing.

I've been shooting with this lens for about 3 months now and I love it. Using this lens on my Z7 has made me fall in love with the 35mm perspective all over again. Its sharp, compact and great in low light for everything from landscapes to newborn shoots, but also quiet enough (for me) to use for...

I have been shooting primarily with Leica full frame / manual focuscameras over the last couple of years, but I was looking for an auto focus equivalent. I recently purchased a Z6 as it is more of a stills camera than the competition (no prior AF Nikon, Canon, or Sony lenses to push towards one...


The NIKKOR Z 35mm f/1.8 S delivers everything that you would expect from Nikon and their long history of offering the highest quality optical lenses. The NIKKOR Z 35mm f/1.8 S is a nice upgrade to it's F mount equivalent and offeres better edge sharpness, better contract, less lens flaring, and the...

Considering its lighter, smaller, and native to Z-mount, I was surprised that the performance is so much better than the F-mount Nikon and Sigma Art primes that I also have. Its sharper edge-to-edge, AF is faster, no chromatic aberrations, no distortion, well-built, honestly I dont know what to...


This is among the best lenses Nikon makes now. I spent many a happy photojournalism adventure in my film days with just a Nikon and a 35mm lens (shooting Tri-X pushed to 1600, of course). This lens brings back that legacy but updates the quality of this 35mm lens to 21st Century digital standards.

B&H Photo

There is a reason this lens is getting 5 stars from everyone so far. 35 mm is perfect focal length for event, street photography and group shots (No wide angle distortion). 2 ED and 3 aspherical glass will give best picture quality than any other 35 mm 1.8 or third party 1.4 lenses.


The 50 mm f/1.8 S series lens for the Z mount is a fast focusing lens that creates sharp images and really nice bokeh, especially for a 50 mm prime lens. It is light and easy to carry... The S series lenses by Nikon are all great! Can’t wait for the 70-200mm f/2.8 to be released.

B&H Photo

If I could do it all over again when I purchased my Nikon Z6, I would have got this lens rather than the kit lens. While the 24-70 F4 lens offers good performance, I have found the 35mm F1.8 to be especially versatile in a wide range of shooting situations.
