Arrived for Testing: Nikon 35mm f/1.8G FX

B&H Photo has the Nikon AF-S 35mm f/1.8G FX IN STOCK as this was written.

A review sample of the new Nikon 35mm f/1.8G has arrived. My intent is to compare it to the Nikon 35mm f/1.4G. See the review of the Nikon 35mm f/1.4G in DAP.

Unleash the power of your high-resolution Nikon HD-SLR. The AF-S NIKKOR 35mm f/1.8G ED draws maximum definition and image quality from Nikon's high-pixel-count image sensors for truly dazzling photos and HD videos.

It brings the outstanding optical characteristics of AF-S NIKKOR 35mm f/1.4G to Nikon's f/1.8 FX-format prime lens collection, which includes 28mm, 50mm and 85mm versions.

With 63° of coverage, ED and AS glass elements for outstanding contrast and minimal distortion, Nikon's innovative Silent Wave Motor for fast, quiet, precise autofocusing and a lightweight, compact design, the AF-S NIKKOR 35mm f/1.8G ED is an outstanding choice for your photo or HD video applications.

MTF

Central micro contrast looks to be excellent wide open, but corner areas will be quite soft, at least in the nominal plane of focus. Performance at close range might be less good than at distance. Some field curvature is likely to be seen.
