In addition to the D3300 and its new kit lens, Nikon also unveiled the new addition to their FX-format lens portfolio – the AF-S Nikkor 35mm f/1.8G ED.

At first glance, the new full-frame glass looks a lot like its DX-format counterpart. But their similarities are only skin deep, as Nikon made a few improvements on the inner workings of their new wide-angle lens.

Nikon’s new fast prime lens boasts a total of 11 optics, two of which (Aspherical lens and Extra-low Dispersion (ED) element) are intended to further enhance the image quality and address sagittal comma flare. Furthermore, the Nikkor 35mm f/1.8G ED is equipped with Silent Wave Motor (SWM) which provides fast and silent autofocus operation.

These added optics explains why the 35mm lens is marginally heavier and taller than the DX-version. Nevertheless, it’s still a compact and lightweight, not to mention fast, wide-angle lens that should be a great addition to your lens lineup.

it has only 7 aperture blades, which means you don’t get that sweet bokeh ball ’round effect’ of a 9 aperture blade.

That being said, kung FX yung gamit mo, that should offset things up dahil very shallow na yung DOF kahit na stop down ka pa sa f2.8.
