Nikon's AF-S NIKKOR 35mm f/1.4G Wide-Angle Lens is a super-fast
lens in a classic wide-angle focal length. Its f/1.4 aperture allows you
to shoot with your camera handheld in low-light situations, perfect for
weddings, reportage, and street photography. You'll also be able to
achieve a very narrow depth of field when shooting wide open, creating a
dramatic separation between your subject and background.
The lens features a Silent Wave Motor (SWM) for quick, quiet, and
accurate autofocus. Its Rear Focusing (RF) system ensures that the front
element won't rotate during focus, making it possible to use a circular
polarizing filter with the lens. Two focus modes are available -- M/A
and M. M/A mode uses autofocus up until the point where you move the
focus ring, allowing you to fine-tune focus manually. M mode is lets you
manually focus the lens -- perfect for the aspiring Cartier-Bresson.
The optical design of the lens is something to behold. It features 10
elements in 7 groups, with a single aspherical element that eliminates
coma and other types of aberration -- even when shooting wide open. A
nine blade aperture smoothes the out of focus background of an image,
delivering bokeh that is extremely pleasing to the eye and separating
your subject from the background.
The lens features Nikon's exclusive Nano-Crystal Coat, which minimizes
flare -- even in backlit situations. It is also coated with Nikon's
Super Integrated Coating (SIC), which further aids flare reduction and
improves color consistency.
