Sharpness at 35mm
The sharpness tests for this review were carried out using a real-world subject rather than a test chart. The Nikkor 35mm f/1.8G lens was attached to a Nikon D610 body, which in turn was mounted on a sturdy tripod. Exposure Delay Mode was activated. Slight tonal changes are due to slight changes in natural light during the session.
The full frame at 35mm
The lens is impressively sharp wide open in the centre, and from f/2.8 through f/11 centre sharpness is nothing short of first rate, with f/16 slightly worse due to diffraction. The edges aren't quite so good, with the best results obtained from f/4 to f/11.
