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.
Naturally beautiful photos and HD videos
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.
Unleash your camera's potential
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.

The final piece of Nikon's versatile f/1.8 FX-format prime lens collection
The AF-S NIKKOR 35mm f/1.8G ED completes Nikon's versatile collection of advanced f/1.8 FX-format prime lenses, joining the 28mm, 50mm and 85mm versions. All four lenses offer the latest Nikon advancements and optical design characteristics, providing consistent performance at each focal length: wide-angle, standard and medium telephoto.
A lens with a curved, non-spherical surface. Used to reduce aberrations and enable a more compact lens size. Aspherical lenses minimize coma and other types of lens aberrations, even when used at the widest aperture. They are particularly useful in correcting distortion in wide-angle lenses and help contribute to a lighter, more compact design by reducing the number of standard (spherical) elements necessary. Aspherical lens elements correct these distortions by continuously changing the refractive index from the centre of the lens.
