Nikon has decided to surprise Nikon DSLR Users once again. What now?? Ever since the introduction of the new G lens of the f/1.4G 50mm with autofocus build into it (the price though was the main factor that people still stick to their old f/1.4D), it seems that those with the 35mm f/1.8D is going to be surprise with this new inclusion.
After what seemed to be rumors has now been proven true with Nikonians.org already giving us a glimpse of this amazing new lens. This new lens is the AF-S DX NIKKOR 35mm f/1.8G. Now D40, D40x and D60 users would be glad this lens would be coming onto shores after March 2009.
Estimated price is lesser than USD200 which means a better bargain. Now what more can one ask for, for a new portrait lens for the DX format cameras of Nikon.
Though now I wished I didn’t get my 50mm f/1.4D and instead and waited for this 35mm f/1.8G.
Here are the excerpts of the mentioned lens.
Weighing in at a mere 200 g (7 oz) the AF-S DX NIKKOR 35mm f/1.8G is an 8 element lens offering a fast maximum f/1.8 aperture, and the suggested retail is below $200 USD.
Edit : Realised an error in my post, it’s a DX format lens instead of a FX format lens.
