The Nikon Nikkor AF 35mm f/2 D ED Prime Lens is a standard, 35mm prime that’s designed for FX or full frame Nikon digital SLRs. using this on a smaller, crop-sensor body or a DX camera will give you a 52.5mm focal length equivalent to a 35mm. The f/2 aperture capability gives you a better out-of-focus background blur or bokeh, more control over your depth of field, and better photos when shooting in low light settings. Its 35mm focal length makes it an ideal lens to use for journalistic and street photography since 35mm is roughly about the same of the human eye’s angle of view. You can get more details into your shot for a more “complete” photo.
Ideal 35mm Length
The 35mm focal length is a perfect length, especially if you’re after shots that look lifelike. 35mm is very similar to what our eyes see. You get pictures that are more “real” looking, which is great for journalism photos, portraits, and street photography.
Aperture Control Ring
This lens has a dedicated aperture control ring which lets you change the aperture opening without going through the settings. Use the aperture ring on aperture priority mode for easy changes on your depth of field and exposure.
The Nikon Nikkor AF 35mm f/2 D ED Prime Lens has Extra-low Dispersion (ED) elements that help minimizes color fringing. This gives you sharper, cleaner details on your photos.
A major feature of the Nikon Nikkor AF 35mm f/2 D ED Prime Lens is its f/2.0 capabilities. Shooting wide open, you get beautiful bokeh, or a soft, out-of-focus blur effect in the background. This makes it ideal of photos where you want to highlight your subjects.
