I honestly love how little distortion this lens has for being what I call a wide angle (remember that I shoot at 200mm normally). This shot is uncorrected for distortion, and has just a tiny crop, so the subject definitely wasn't in the center. I find to get the best results though, I have to manual focus the lens. That could be an issue with the D800 though.

KF i do have the s35, while its a good lens and sharp...its on the chopping block. i barely use it and would rather use my 35mm f2 nonAI over it. but the rendering on newer N glass is very nice.

I have considered selling my 35, I simply don't use it enough, the focus is just so inaccurate at times. No issues with my 85, or 200 though. Somehow I still feel like it's my D800's fault, really don't like the camera, loved my D700 way more.

I love my 35g on the D800, one of my favourite lenses, ultra sharp at all apertures and the colours and contrast are excellent. At f16 the new 1.4g Nikkors produce the best 18 point stars on light sources I've seen.

I took the same shot on my 24-120 and the stars were nowhere near as good.

Here is a 30second exposure at f16.

Is it true?
No pictures since nearly 5 years?
Where have all the lenses gone?

I just like to show how beautiful machine construction can be...

The lens performs strong.
Perhaps I'll buy it one day...

Kind regards
