Nikon unveils their fastest DX Format lens

Does the idea of a fast Nikkor lens designed for your DX-format Nikon DSLR spark your interest?

Our new generation of Nikonians who may rarely have been thinking of slipping a prime lens in their camera bag in favor of their multi-purpose zooms now have a tempting new lens from Nikon to consider.

Weighing in at a mere 200 g (7 oz) the AF-S DX NIKKOR 35mm f/1.8G is an 8 element lens offering a fast maximum f/1.8 aperture, and the suggested retail is below $200 USD.

Nikon USA's Press Release describes it as Nikon's "first fixed focal length, fast-aperture DX-format lens that affords photographers superb image quality along with the creative possibilities and versatility of the classic 50mm focal length (FX-format equivalent of 52mm)."

Specs (and a sample image you can download ) on the lens are available at the Nikon Global site.

The new lens should start shipping in March.
