Nikon AF-S Nikkor 35mm f/1.8G DX again

The reviews of the Nikon AF-S Nikkor 35mm f/1.8G DX triggered enormous interest. Another one (with test shots) popped up on this Czech site (I think I have to move to Eastern Europe - they get the goodies before us).

    I would rather say Central Europe, as both Poland and Czech Republic are in Central not Eastern Europe 🙂 – but You are most welcome !

    Interesting review – especially the AF speed – can it really be slower than an 18-70 ?

      That full frame performance — soft dark corners and sides is very similar to what I see on the 70 200 vr lense. Although a bit worse. They could have made it fx too with a very slight increase in size.

      Smaller aperture of 35 f/1.8 requires higher AF accuracy than 18-70, therefore it is slower I think.

    Yeah, I don’t really get why those markets get new models before, let’s say, the U.S. The economies there are even worse than the U.S. As bad as the dollar/yen conversion is, I believe it’s better than in those places. Seems to me that it would make more sense when shipments are limited to get them to the markets where they’re more likely to sell combined with the best conversion rate.

      Not to argue with You, but before You state that one economy is worser than the other, please get all the data about different economies around the world. On the other hand, we will not have such a market instability and price increase if the US economists and bankers baheved more resonably in the past.

  • Slower than the 18-70? is it possible? interesting review though, thanks.

    Price recomended by Nikon for czech market is 5 790 CZK (cca 200 EUR or 258 USD).

      Tha fact is that what happens in real life 1USD = 1€ 🙁 Therefore for us europeans, we are paying about 30% more for the same product. Here in Spain we are talking of about 240€ for this little gem.
