This is the Nikon 35mm DX with the AF-S motor that works with DX cameras, including the D40 and D60 series. If you have a FX camera, you should choose one of the others. A lot of us are in the habit of thinking of a 35mm lens as being a moderate wide angle, but because the DX cameras have a 1.5 crop factor, this lens turns out to be neutral. It has a wide aperture of f/1.8 and it is small and lightweight. It can focus down to 12 inches, itís about 2 inches long, and it weighs just 7 ounces. These features make this lens very versatile indoors and out.
You'll see three different 35mm Nikon DX lenses on the LensGiant website, so what's the difference between them? Here's a run down:
Nikon 35mm AF-S f/1.8G ED: Designed for FX cameras, works fine on DX cameras, and is more expensive than the DX version.
Nikon 35mm AF-S f/1.8G DX: Designed for DX cameras. This is the best choice for most DX users.
Nikon 35mm AF-S f/1.4G ED: Works on FX and DX, has the largest aperture for low light situations and the most background blur.
