Does Canon have a 35 1.8 like Nikon's 35 1.8g?

The Nikon is a nice lens for $200. Does Canon have anything like it? Thanks.

The Canon covers FF, though.

No, I think that G means that only electronic aperture control is available (they have some old lenses still in production). The AF-S designation means DX only (edited to clarify: some FX cameras can shoot with AF-S lenses in DX mode [In-camera cropping]).

Nikkor AF-S 35mm f/1.8 G DX

The difference between the Canon and Nikon is very visible

The Nikon has 7 rounded aperture blade and ring USM

Nikon 35mm f/1.8 DX lens is better but only work on a crop sensor. Canon 35mm f/2 has rather poor bokeh and has a louder, slower AF motor.

and the Nikon seems to have much better corner sharpness and probably better contrast too.

If you are trying to decide which system you want to get into. Well Canon simply doesn't have high quality cheap primes like the Nikon 50 f1.8G and the 35 1.8G DX
and don't let the others convince you that the 50 f1.8 II is good lens because compared to the Nikon 1.8G which only costs 100 bucks more it's a total piece of crap. There I said it and I am sure people are going to call me a heretic :D

AF stands for AutoFocus and S stands for Silent Wave Motor (equals to Canon's USM). DX itself already meant DX sensors. Nikon terms are no harder than Canon's. Just need to read up and know what these stands for.

Nikon also has a 35 f/2 lens for FX/DX format. It's an older non-AFS lens (it's a screwdriver type) but still a very good lens, as long as your body has focusing motor. (D90, D300, D7000, D700, etc) It will only work as manual focus with D3100, D3000, 5000, 5100, D40...etc)

You have these options for FX and DX: 35/1.4(AFS), 35/2(AFD), 24 1.4(AFS), 28/1.8(AFS)
You have these for DX ONLY: 35 1.8 (AFS), 40 2.8 Micro (AFS)

"G" simply means no aperture ring.

btw, you can mount a DX-only lens into an FX body, and you have an option to either shoot it in DX crop mode or Full-FX mode with dark corners. Heck, you can even mount 40-year old Nikon lenses into today's Nikon body and it will work! :)


Skill is very important but a fully charged battery is very very important :lol:

I believe that Zack Arias used the 35 f/2, fwiw.

The short, sweet answer is no, not really. I've seen a lot of people asking for a cheap, light, relatively fast 'normal' lens for crop bodies, but so far.. nothing.
