    I was lucky and got a Nikkor O.C. 2,0/35 on a Ebay auction.
    The 35 never was my favourit focal lens so it stayed unused
    for quite a while in my storage.
    In a mood I picked it for a task the 50 seems to be not “enough”
    and was impressed how wonderful this lens works with my D700.

      I just purchased one of these 35mm f2.0 to marry up with my D700 and I am looking forward to some winning photographs. I have in the last year fallen in love with prime lenses.

    I like the Nikkor O.C. 2.0/35mm so much that I patiently sought out a second one in equally excellent condition.

    Used on my Sony A7, it is harder to discern proper focus than more contrasty lenses [like the superb Olympus OM 2.0/50mm Macro], but the long throw, very satisfying handling, and beautiful image rendering make it special to my eyes.

    And it’s really built like a tank – to the point I once first checked the door it accidentally hit.

    I use on a A6300 and prefer 35mm to 50mm views. As noted, built like a tank. May be the sharpest manual Nikkor produced. Adapted to Sony, it is formidable and have yet to replace as general use lens, even though I have the wee 38mm 1.8 Zuicko in the bag. The OC always seems to “do it!”
