Default Old is Gold

I had bought a 35mm F2D lens from Singapore. Its an used lens.
The moment I mounted it on my D810, I was surprised at the clarity and ease of use.
The performance of this lens can easily match a later verswion 35mm f1.8G lens.


Just two samples.....

Congratulations on your 35mm f/2.

The Nikkor 35mm f/2 (see lens in lower right hand corner) was my favorite lens for decades until I replaced it with the f/1.4 version. The f/1.4 version became my favorite and I now use the f/2 as a backup.
