Nikon Z7
Nikon NIKKOR Z 35mm f/1.8 S

Aperture Series: Creekside Aspen

This medium range scene compensates for the focus shift of the Nikon NIKKOR Z 35mm f/1.8 S by refocusing at f/1.4, f/2, f/2.8, f4* and thus delivering the best performance possible (assuming autofocus is accurate and it seems to be). Apertures f/6.3 and f/9 and f/11 use the same focus as f/4; there may be a trace of focus shift from f/4 to f/6.3, but it was getting too dark to focus beyond f/4.

The results here are strong evidence for why Nikon’s PR lays claim to better optical performance: there can be no doubt that the Nikon NIKKOR Z 35mm f/1.8 S not only delivers a far superior image to any previous 35mm Nikkor such as the Nikon AF-S 35mm f/1.4G, it delivers an outstanding image by any standard, at least with a little stopping down.
