Nikon Nikkor Z 35mm f/1.8 S Lens tested at DxOMark website. According to test results the brigh prime Nikon lens achieved an overall score of 38 points.
Tested on the high-resolution 45.7MP Nikon Z 7 full frame mirrorless camera, the Nikkor Z 35mm F1.8 S ranks as the highest-scoring Nikon 35mm lens with an impressive sharpness sub-score of 30 PMpix at f/4.
With its retail price of $849, the Nikon 35mm f/1.8 S is not a cheap lens, especially considering that its F-mount version, the Nikon 35mm f/1.8G ED retails for $529. Check out the test results below with comparison chart.
From DxOMark conclusion:
The new wider Z-mount with its shorter register means there’s a lot more flexibility for optical engineers when designing lenses. The mount should especially benefit wide-angle lenses, and indeed, the Nikon Z 35mm f/1.8 S is the highest-scoring Nikon 35mm lens we’ve tested to date. Its key strength is sharpness, with good performance at the maximum aperture and exceptionally uniform resolution at the mid-apertures. This said, it doesn’t quite match such third-party options as the Sigma 35mm f/1.4 A and the Tamron SP 35mm f/1.8 Di, which achieve better sharpness when tested on the lower-resolution 36.3Mp Nikon D800E, compared to the Nikkor Z lens on the 45.7Mp Nikon Z 7. Overall, however, Nikon Z-system shooters who are looking for a 35mm prime can rest assured that the native Nikon Z 35mm f/1.8 S lens is an optically excellent choice.
