Nikon Z 35mm f/1.8 mirrorless lens review

Nikon Z 35mm f/1.8 lens review by Mobile01 (the lens is expected to start shipping next week, on November 5th, pre-orders are now open at  Adorama | B&H Photo):

The focusing ring of Z 35mm 1.8S is all metal and provides great handling. Furthermore, it enables users to have their own setting, such as changing the aperture or exposure compensation.

Edge resolution

By the gap and stains on the solar panel, we can determine that the performance of the Z 35mm 1.8S lens is better compared to other Nikkor 35mm lenses:


The Z mount’s time has come and the first prime lens brings back the glory of starburst, from aperture f/5.6 a converged starburst appears, and at f/22 is presented in the image below:

Chromatic aberration

When testing, I had the aperture at f/2, and the Z 35mm 1.8S undeniably wins it all in this comparison with other 35mm Nikkor lenses.

Coma aberration

Original image:

Users can see it the most in night images, though reducing the aperture helps a bit. Coma aberration distorts light spots on the edge of an image not only in night scenes but also affects the edge quality of all images.
