The Nikon 35mm f/1.4G has been tough to obtain due to high demand and low supply – I finally got my hands on one today! I was hoping for an ultimate 35mm f/1.4 lens comparison, but the darn Zeiss 35mm f/1.4 is not available yet, so I had to resort to Zeiss f/2 instead:
What am I missing here besides the Zeiss f/1.4? I can only think of Tokina f/2.8, but then it would be the slowest lens of the bunch, plus it is a DX/macro lens. The Nikkor 35mm f/1.8G DX is also not in the picture, but will probably be included in the tests, if I perform some tests on a DX body.
Lenses in the above picture (from left to right):
- Nikon 35mm f/1.4G
- Nikon 35mm f/2.0D AF
- Nikon 35mm f/1.4 AIS
- Zeiss Distagon 35mm f/2.0 ZF.2
My next few weeks are going to be very interesting and busy! ;-)
