Default AF-S DX NIKKOR 35mm f/1.8G sample photo

I just got this lens a couple of weeks ago, I took this photo this morning while sitting at a red light out my drivers window hand held ISO 1600 with my D-50. Cropped slightly, resized and sharpened. I love this lens!!!!!

I've got the 85/1.8, the 50/1.8, and have been thinking of completing the set with the 35/1.8. I like being able to take photos in the dark.

I have the 50 1.8, this lens seems much much sharper wide open that the 50. It's a great lens in daylight to!

congrats bob. very nice lens and good results in very tough conditions.

i have the canon 28 1.8, which serves a similar purpose and really enjoy the focal length and the speed.

watch out, fast primes can easily become an addiction. i have my sights set on a few more myself...

Thanks Dustin! I think it's to late for me, I'm hooked! I plan to use this lens on my D-90 to photograph that young man in the second photo during this basketball season.

Another sample from this morning on my way to work. ISO 800 Hand held while leaning against my truck to steady the camera. Resized, slight bit of noise reduction and USM are the only edits.
