Nikon 35mm f/2.0 Wide Angle AI-S 35mm Primes
Wide Angle 35mm f/2.0 AIS Manual Focus Lens.
Submitted by Jerome a Intermediate
Date Reviewed: November 19, 2008
Strengths: Build quality and image quality from f2.8 on.
Very cheap, but test it before you buy it to get a good sample.
Weaknesses: Non-AF for those who need it.
F2 a tad soft and not enough contrast
Old goody which shows why the older products do tend to break less often. Perfect all metal build. Smooth zoom ring which makes it pretty much fun to use a non-AF lens.
The image quality is very good. A bit less contrast at f/2 in comparison to "newer" lenses, but already at f2.8 you get sharpness and contrast. That is on a D300 as I have tested it.
So if you liked the 50mm primes in the past on film you are likely to love this one too.
