I was just wondering if anyone used this lens. I am going to wait until photokina to see if Nikon gets around to introducing AFS primes...I would love to see a 35/1.4 AFS ED Aspherical Super Nanocoated uber lens, but I am wondering if we will see it. If not, I am curious as to how people like the 35/1.4 AIS if they have used it. It seems like it is not great wide open, but improves a lot stopped down a stop or two. The photos I have seen have variable bokeh...some ok, some bad. The 35/1.4 ASPH is my favorite lens, so I am probably pretty spoiled here.
I would look into the 28/1.4, but I am not willing to spend 3000+ dollars on a lens that cost half that new. Also, I don't like 28mm as much as 35mm...the angle of view just does not mesh well for me. I like 35 and 24...
As for the 35/2 AF...well, it does not seem to do very well wide open, and it is only one stop faster than the zooms, so it is not as persuasive to me. Certainly cheap though, which is nice.
So anyway, if anyone has shot with the 35/1.4 AIS and can share some photos or experiences from it, I would be interested to hear them. I am kind of disappointed that the ZF 35mm is a f/2, not a 1.4...they have had some 35/1.4 distagons in the past.
