Compact, fast FX-format 35mm prime lens that excels on Nikon's high-resolution HD-SLRs.

Unleash the power of your high-resolution Nikon HD-SLR. The AF-S NIKKOR 35mm f/1.8G ED draws maximum definition and image quality from Nikon's high-pixel-count image sensors for truly dazzling photos and HD videos. It brings the outstanding optical characteristics of AF-S NIKKOR 35mm f/1.4G to Nikon's f/1.8 FX-format prime lens collection, which includes 28mm, 50mm and 85mm versions. With 63° of coverage, ED and AS glass elements for outstanding contrast and minimal distortion, Nikon's innovative Silent Wave Motor for fast, quiet, precise autofocusing and a lightweight, compact design, the AF-S NIKKOR 35mm f/1.8G ED is an outstanding choice for your photo or HD video applications.

Versatile 35mm focal length with a fast f/1.8 aperture

On an FX-format Nikon camera, a 35mm lens approximates the angle of view we see with our eyes, an ideal perspective for so many photo and HD video applications. The AF-S NIKKOR 35mm f/1.8G ED combines that natural perspective (52.5mm equivalent on DX-format cameras) with an f/1.8 maximum aperture for outstanding depth of field control and low-light performance—all in a compact, lightweight design. Capture vibrant natural looking photos and HD videos with softly blurred backgrounds, even in low light.

Optimized for high-resolution Nikon FX-format HD-SLRs

A great lens draws peak performance from a camera, and the AF-S NIKKOR 35mm f/1.8G ED is no exception. Impressive on Nikon's FX- and DX-format D-SLRs, it delivers consistent, superlative performance, even in tough shooting situations. Aspherical (AS) and Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass elements combat sagittal flare at wide aperture settings. Super Integrated coatings (SIC) enhance contrast and colour and nearly eliminate ghosting, even in backlit scenes. And Nikon's innovative Silent Wave Motor (SWM) uses ultrasonic waves for fast, accurate, quiet autofocusing.


AS stands for Aspherical lens elements. This type of lens utilizes non-spherical surfaces on either one or both sides of the glass in order to eliminate certain types of lens aberration.

ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) Glass

An optical glass developed by Nikon that is used with normal optical glass in telephoto lenses to obtain optimum correction of chromatic aberrations.

Rear Focusing System

A system in which only the rear lens group moves during focusing, thus eliminating changes in the physical length of the lens during focusing and enabling faster focusing. Such lenses are designated with RF on the lens barrel.

Super Integrated Coating

Nikon Super Integrated Coating is Nikon's term for its multilayer coating of the optical elements in NIKKOR lenses.

Silent Wave Motor

AF-S NIKKOR lenses feature Nikon’s Silent Wave Motor (SWM). This technology converts “traveling waves” into rotational energy to focus the optics. This enables high-speed autofocusing that's extremely accurate and super quiet.

Trusted Reviews

Some buyers will treasure the extra f-stop of lens speed and the additional selective-focusing opportunities that the wider aperture brings. The chances are, therefore, that anybody who can live with the DX-format restriction and who won’t need a macro capability is likely to be highly delighted by...

Looking at the list of pros and cons we can see that the latter are quite a number. Does it mean that Nikkor 1.8/35 DX is a hardly successful product? Definitely not. Most of all we need to remember that it’s a really cheap instrument addressed to amateur photographers.

Photography BLOG

The Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 35mm f1.8G is a good, fast yet inexpensive 'normal prime' for Nikon DX cameras. Its angle of view is some 2-3 degrees tighter than that of a common 50mm lens mounted to an FX or film body, but that is not a major deviation, and those who liked to use a 'nifty-fifty' on their...


With a price of around £170, this lens is a bit of a bargain for DX users looking for a compact high quality lens for low light shooting, or to isolate a subject by exploiting shallow depth of field.

PC Magazine

The Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 35mm f/1.8G lens is bright and sharp, and worth adding to your DX Nikon SLR kit.


This is a very useful lens with its brightness and optical quality. The 35mm is much more useful on Dx format than the 50mm according to my liking. Highly recommended !See in more detail at:

What Digital Camera

The Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 35mm f/1.8G offer an attractive focal length and a focusing system which looks set to impress

DP Review

The AF-S Nikkor 35mm F1.8G DX is a lens which certainly caused a degree of dismay on its release, with many Nikon fans disappointed by the decision to make it compatible with the DX format only.


This brand new compact wide angle lens from Nikon costs around £470 and sports a bright f/1.8 maximum aperture and silent, internal focusing with full time manual focus override. Is it good enough to be considered as a cheaper alternative to Nikon's highly regarded 35mm f/1.4G lens?

Layers Magazine

If you’re a Nikon shooter and you’ve been contemplating buying a reasonably priced, professional prime lens, you should give serious consideration to the new NIKKOR AF-S DX 35mm f/1.8G. What makes this lens so special?

I just like to take photos of family & friends along with landscapes when I am out walking. I have been looking at the Nikon AF-S 35mm f/1.8G DX Lens for a while I read all the reviews and decided to purchase the lens I have not been disappointed it took a little while to get used to it the quality...


Great lens. I bought a camera kit that came with a jack of all trades lens, This is a master of quite a few . I favour a lot of close up wide aperature stuff and this is fab. Also small enough and with some versatility, it makes a great happy snapper lens.

I\'ve tried a few copies and this lens can\'t convince me. I\'m using a AF-p 18-55 now over a year, which is sharper. AF speed is much faster en tag on always. I tried this lens as a low light indoor but the combination 18-55 + bounce flash still is better.


Being both new to photography and working within a tight budget, I bought this prime lens for use with my D3500. Absolutely love the results of my initial portrait photography. It works really well in low light.

The title says it all. This is a truly superb lens. Extremely sharp and very fast focusing throughout. I was going to go for the cheaper 35mm in the Nikkor range, but opted to spend the extra for this one instead and am I glad I did. This is already my number one lens for everyday general use.


I am new to photography, and was researching a lot to buy my first DSLR. Went with the Nikon D3500 as a good entry-level camera. Naturally before buying and whilst doing all of my research, I also looked at different lenses, as I’d been using my Dad’s 5100 with the kit lens and the images just...


35mm on a crop sensor dslr gives the same perspective of the human eye. Ultra sharp, perfect bokeh for those beautiful portrait shots.Light weight.Solid build. All in all it is typical of the NIKON brand.......PERFECT.

Wilkinson Cameras

Nice Lens really silent motor well worth the price .


There aren't many prime lenses for Nikon's DX series - and this one replicates the old "standard" lens that came with old film SLR's. It's much lighter than a zoom, and has an aperture of f1.8, so lots of light. Absolutely thrilled with it on my ageing D200 - sharp as a tack, easy to use.

Wex Photo Video

I've been using this lens for studio shoots with models and have been amazed by the results. Using this lens makes the camera lightweight and easy to handle. The resulting pictures are bright and sharp. Each time I zoom in on the computer full size and the images remain sharp with all the detail.
