The AF-S Nikkor 35mm f/1.8G is a moderate wide angle prime for FX format SLRs. It uses a Silent Wave Motor for fast, quiet autofocus, and includes one ED and one aspheric element in its optical construction. It’s not to be confused with the cheaper AF-S FX Nikkor 35mm f/1.8G, which is for FX format cameras only . Auto-focus troubleshooting : If desired, autofocus can be over-ridden by rotating the lens focus ring while the shutter-release button is pressed halfway (or, if the camera is equipped with an AF-ON button, while the AF-ON button is pressed). To refocus using autofocus, press the shutter-release button halfway or press the AF-ON button again. Unleash the power of your high-resolution Nikon HD-SLR.
