[ Mine gets here tomorrow]
I have the 35 f/2 and its my favorite lense
Ive been wanting that one for a while. Now Im waiting to see how the 1.8 turns out.
I will buy one soon....but waiting for stores to get it in stock.
mine shows up tomorrow.
the new one? is it for sale already? link?
http://www.adorama.com/NK3518U.html "on allocation" meaning it ships whenever it comes in. I have an order set...waiting....
i have 2
thats suprisingly cheap.
First few shots around the house...
I'm tempted.. is it sharper than a nifty fiffy?
it's supposed to be about the same optics as the fifty, IIRC
in for canon to release something similar at a similar price point
Those shots look pretty bad
Nope. No 35mm f/1.8G for me.
I just got the 50mm f/1.4G instead!
Next is the 16-85mm.
that 35 really produces some kick-ass motion blur
now if only those shots were in focus
yea, those pics hopefully dont do it justice... get on a tripod or take a shot with some decent lighting.

review and data:
http://www.photozone.de/nikon--nikkor-aps-c-lens-tests/422-nikkor_35_18g?start=1 looks like like the 50, except wider and a bit sharper wide open
The 35 f/2.0 was my first lens for my D70s when I bought it 2 years ago, but I use my 50 1.8 and Tamron 17-50 way more.
Still good, though.
I'm a little nervous about some of the CA issues in the new f/1.8.... but for $200, I suppose it's forgiveable
I didn't put any effort into those shots, just snapped the closest things to me wide open after I opened the box.
There's a difference between effort, and utilizing the focusing ring at all whatsoever... or giving it a chance to focus on something
