    A wider world of possibilities.

    This prime lens takes photography to a whole new level, allowing you to capture the perfect shot no matter what you’re shooting. With its wide coverage and beautiful shallow depth of field, you can achieve shots that seem impossible — all while maintaining utter sharpness throughout. As the perfect go-to lens for most photographers, this classic design ensures remarkable accuracy and overall consistency, with unbeatable features any discerning photographer would love. From unparalleled low light performance to sharpness that is second-to-none — you'll be reaching for this powerhouse every time.

    S-Line. NIKKOR quality at its absolute best.

    With superior performance and resolution, sophisticated features, specialized technologies, and enhanced reliability, this is truly the pinnacle of Nikon's long-standing lens lineup. Plus, it takes full advantage of the monumental Nikon Z mount for sharp images that you won't forget! Don't settle for anything less than perfect results.

    Perception redefined

    Empowered by the Z system's larger mount, shorter flange distance, raw imaging power and video capabilities, the NIKKOR Z 35mm f/1.8 S will redefine your perceptions of what an f/1.8 lens can do.

    Wide-open sharpness

    This lens packs a serious punch, boasting epic definition and resolution from corner to corner at its maximum aperture of f/1.8, giving you incredible detail no matter how hard the light. And don't let the low price tag fool you--this masterpiece features two ED glass and two aspherical lenses that work together to suppress chromatic aberrations for even sharper results.

    Fast, accurate focus

    The larger Z Mount delivers more light to a Z camera's powerful PDAF system for extremely high focusing accuracy and speed.

    The undistorted truth

    With superior optics and optics engineering, this lens offers incredibly sharp images that maintain clarity and color accuracy regardless of how challenging the light conditions may be. Packed with features including improved anti-flare capabilities, virtually zero ghosting or chromatic aberrations, and outstanding sharpness even at the edges - this is a true game changer for your photography.

    Jack of all situations

    This lens offers professionals the versatility to capture stunning land and cityscapes and softer environmental portraits with equal precision and clarity. A prime lens like this one is also respected among filmmakers for conveying a more human eye perspective than many zooms. And regarding low light performance - this fast 35mm lens of superior optical design blitzes ahead of the competition with incredible skill in dimly lit settings.

    Dreamy backgrounds

    Featuring a 9-blade rounded diaphragm and an impressive f/1.8 aperture, this lens expands your creative prowess with unprecedented levels of clarity and detail in your photos. Produce beautiful, crystalline shots you'll want to share again and again - whether you’re shooting landscapes, Macro's, low light or even night photography. With its larger mount and shorter flange distance, this lens is optimized to create round bokeh so stunningly lifelike; you won't believe what your camera can do.

    Beautiful establishing shots

    With near-silent autofocus powered by a new stepping motor, it’ll give you stunning results that will wow viewers whether you’re using it for an interview, tutorial video, or product demo. The integral human eye perspective puts those watching at the very centre of the shot making any video or photo more immersive and dramatic — it’s like they’re living the image rather than just watching it!

    Shines in low light

    Unbelievably sharp images await you at a wide aperture of f/1.8. A nine blade rounded diaphragm ensures your point-of-light sources, like streetlights, appear crisp and focused with minimal spherical aberration.

    The front line of an imaging revolution

    Z lenses, perfectly matched to Z camera bodies, are designed with a sense of consistency that combines reliability and beauty with next-dimension optical performance for freedom in image creation.

    Durable & lightweight

    Extensively sealed against dust and moisture, especially around all moving parts of the barrel. Compact, lightweight and ideally balanced on a Z camera.

    New Customizable Control Ring

    Can be used for manual focusing (default), aperture control (great for iris transitions during video recording) or exposure compensation.

    Dual Detect 5 Axis VR

    With its superior in-camera image stabilization system, this lens offers up to five stops of pitch, roll, yaw, X, and Y shake correction when used with Z cameras that feature in-camera VR. Plus, you can also get extra electronic VR (e-VR) during video capture. This is perfect if you’re planning on using this lens for shooting videos or capturing action shots! The advanced technology and high quality optics of Nikon’s impressive line of lenses make this compact 35mm lens a great investment.
