Question

comaprison of af-s dx nikkor 35mm f/1.8g and af nikkor 35mm f/2d for Nikon D7000

I'd like a sharp "standard" lens for my Nikon D7000, I know the DX lens is for digital only but I'm confused as to whether the standard AF NIKKOR 35mm f/2D lens might offer sharper photos even though it's not specifically for digital cameras.

I believe another big difference is that the DX lens is for the crop sensor that the D7000 has and the f2d is for a full size sensor so on the D7000 it will render closer to a 50mm lens. I have the dx lens and am considering getting the f2d also to have something closer to a prime 50 mm on my D7000. The dx lens is an amazingly sharp and beautiful lens for the money and I love for shooting video, great dof.

I haven't used the older f2D lens, but the 35 1.8 is a phenomenal lens for the money. It is very sharp and the AF is super fast and quiet.

Nikon offers two types of autofocus digital camera bodies: those with a built-in focus drive motor and those which require a lens to have a motor. Cameras such as the D7000 do have a focus motor in it so you are able to use the 35mm lens and you will be able to achieve AF.

Cameras such as the D3100 do not have a focus motor in it so they require the lens to have the focusing motor – an “AF-S” lens. While these bodies can use a lens with no focus motor (an “AF” lens) you would have to manually turn the focus ring to bring the subject in to sharp focus. Since the D7000 has a built-in motor for AF this lens is fully functional with it.

It will.work but you will not have autofocus. The D3100 does not have a focus motor and neither does the lens I suggest the AF-S DX Nikkor 35mm1.8 g.

Question

Angle of view on D300s

It is my understanding that this lens on a DX frame will give the same angle of view as a 50mm lens would on a full-frame camera. So if I want a "natural" angle of view, the normal lens for my D300s would be either a 50 mm DX lens (which Nikon apparently does not make) or a 35mm FX lens, like this one. Is that correct? So if I wanted a "normal" prime lens for every-day use, my best option would actually be a 35mm FX lens in order to get a natural angle of view, not the 50mm that I am always reading about -- because on my camera, that would wind up looking more like an 85mm zoom. Have I got that right?

Both a 35mm FX lens or a 35mm DX lens will give you the angle of view equivalent to 52.5mm in full frame format. The DX lens would be optimized for use on a DX format camera and would therefore be lighter and more compact than an FX lens, but both types would carry the 1.5 crop. The DX version would also not be suitable for use on an FX camera due to the crop, while an FX lens can be used on either format.

Yes, the crop is 1.5, so the 35 would give you 52 mm of view and the 50 would be 75 mm.

Make sure you haven't inadvertently disengaged the aperture lock and taken the lens off f/22. If f/stop is in the correct position, be sure to listen for the lens to click into place in the lens mount, otherwise you may not be making a complete connection with the body. Finally, carefully clean the contacts on lens and body with a cotton swab dipped in lens cleaning fluid, to ensure a quality connection. There is no incompatibility issue with the D3X.
