NIKON 35mm
« on: April 13, 2014, 07:35:31 pm »
This a comment for this page on the website
Hello,

I'm preparing to buy the 30mm f/1.4 sigma ART using with my D7100, my question is, why it is better the 35mm f/1.8G nikon lens, they have the same score, but the sigma is much sharper, should I buy the inexpensive nikon lens...?

thank,s
nycko

Hi Nycko,
Thanks for contacting us. You might be interested in this 35mm and 30mm comparison:
http://www.dxomark.com/Lenses/Compare/Side-by-side/AF-S-DX-NIKKOR-35-mm-f-1.8G-on-Nikon-D7100-versus-Sigma-30mm-F14-DC-HSM-A-Nikon-on-Nikon-D7100-versus-35mm-F1.4-AS-UMC-Nikon-on-Nikon-D7100___313_865_1099_865_359_865

The Sigma 30mm is brighter and sharper, but the 35mm from Nikon remains a safe bet economically speaking.

Best regards.

Perhaps the OP meant the new FX lens, i.e. 35mm 1.8G ED.

When are you going to publish the review of this lens?

Hi,

Our apologies for the late reply. The Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 35mm f/1.8G ED lens is currently in our lab, and should be reviewed in the next few weeks, so stay tuned!

Thanks Sophie, that's good to hear that you'll soon publish the 35mm FX results.

From other reviews of the lens it sounds like it may be comparable (or slightly better than) the Sigma 35 f1.4 Art wide open at long distances and slightly inferior at close distances. Will your tests (especially sharpness) be done at a number of distances?
