Today Nikon announced the AF-S DX 35mm f1.8 G lens, a "fast-fifty" for DX shooters. It's a fast aperture prime lens with a DX-equivalent focal length of 52mm, replicating the classic 50mm focal length, long a standard in photography for having a field of vision similar to the human eye.

The fast f1.8 aperture is great for low-light shooting, and it has a narrow depth of field for portraits for intentionally blurring the background. The lens has a closest-focusing distance of 11.7 inches and features Nikon's Silent Wave Motor for fast and quiet auto focusing. It is compact and lightweight at 7 ounces.

Nikon's Super Integrated Coating on the lens works to reduce chromatic aberration and lens flare. A rounded diaphragm with a 7-blade aperture creates a nice bokeh, adding a more pleasing look to out of focus background elements.

The new Nikon AF-S 35mm f1.8 G lens has an attractive estimated price of $199.95, and is scheduled to be available in March, 2009.
