Comments:

Great len but had to be sent back for servic as right out of the box auto focus not properly adjusted.Does Nikon have QC problem. [...]If you have the money they is a fantastic lens. Its a great 35mm len on my D90. On my D90 as sharp at F1.4 as my 24-70 and 14-24 zooms at F2.8. At F2.8 much sharper than zooms. I had forgotten how nice an extra 2 F stops is in low light. In really low light auto focus is sometimes off when subject contrast is low. But in most situations focus is very accurate.

This is quite possibly one of the best lenses that Nikon has ever made. It's amazing to use to handheld in low-light situations. Wide-angle on FX. Has the same field of view as a classic 35mm on DX.

Comments:

This lens is as sharp at f/1.4 as my 17-35 Nikkor at f/5.6!! And not just at the center of the frame, but corners are very sharp as well. Since I like wide compositions that include landscapes and/or interior decor in my portraits, this lens was perfect for the job. It is expensive, but if you want to take your photos to a new level, this is the one to get.
