After my Nissin flash, this will be my latest member to my D5000 family… I am so excited over this so decided to talk about it here. 🙂 According to a few top reviewers (dpreview & kenrockwell) this is a above average lens and the price is relatively cheap when compare to AF-S Nikkor 50mm F1.4G. In Malaysia this little wonder cost around RM800-RM900, but I am getting mine for a special price xxx

As the lens is for DX system, it is not compatible with Nikon high-end FX system, however, if I really gonna develop my passion in photography, i cant escape this little wonder. Furthermore, this year, I got 3 weddings to capture and this is a must for portrait photography.

…..In short, the new AF-S Nikkor 35mm f/1.8G is an amazing lens with fabulous edge-to-edge sharpness, great bokeh, and an outrageously low price. In terms of overall sharpness and aperture range this lens is superior to several lenses that cost more than twice as much! Nikon finally delivered a fantastic prime lens for average consumers who own the D40, D40X, or D60. If you own one of these cameras, this lens belongs in your camera bag…..(digitalcamerareview)

I have been saving up on this and made my final car loan payment helped to speed-up this acquisition. Will pick this up during the weekend and will take tones of photos (my wife had already volunteered as the guinea pig). I will post the photos here once I have processed them. So stay tuned!

    Very nice article and right to the point. I don’t know if this is in fact the best place to ask but do you folks have any thoughts on where to employ some professional writers? Thanks 🙂 A guide to shutterstock online.
