GEARTALK: Nikkor 35mm f1.8G DX Lens
Finally! The new Nikkor normal lens for APS-C (DX) sized sensors: the Nikkor 35mm f1.8G is out in Manila. Forget about Nikon producing anymore old AF-D srew driven auto focus lenses in the future. In fact, your better off selling anymore AF-D lenses you may have while they are "relevant". The new Silent Wave Motor (SWM) in-lens focusing motor is the defacto technology for new Nikkors. SWM are technically faster and more accurate in focusing. This focal length is equivalent to a 50mm on a full-frame SLR. I used this glass when I shot the Philippine Starball competition-which I will post next month. The image quality of this cheap lens is superb! BTW you may prefer the new, but expensive Nikkor 35mm f1.8G Macro. DX sensors are here to stay. Kudos Nikon!
