Review: Nikon 35mm f/2 Ai

Picture from

A splendid performer for low light photography.

It is compact, sharp in the center closed one stop, and sharp in the extreme corners by f/5,6.

For low-light, however, even f/2 is safely usable, perhaps with a little help from a light contrast mask in Photoshop.

At least my sample was much better than his AF (non D) sibling, even if for reportage work the convenience of the af is pretty obvious.

Rating: ★★★★☆
