The AF-S 35mm f/1.4G from Nikon is a moderate wide-angle lens in the full-frame FX format, or a fast standard prime when mounted on a DX body. The 35mm f/1.4 features 10 optical elements in seven groups with one aspherical lens element and a Rear Focus (RF) system incorporating a Silent Wave Motor which provides smooth and fast autofocus with full-time manual focus override. Retailing for $1,799.95 / £1,485.99, read our expert Nikon AF-S Nikkor 35mm f/1.4G review to find out if it's worth the hefty investment.
The Samyang 24mm f/1.4 ED AS UMC is an ultra-wide-angle prime lens for full-frame and APS-C DSLRs. The Samyang 24mm f/1.4 is a more affordable alternative to the Nikon and Canon equivalents thanks largely to being manual-focus only.

The ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 14-35mm F2.0 SWD is the world’s first standard zoom lens to feature a constant f2.0 aperture. It provides an equivalent focal length of 28-70mm in 35mm terms and features the SWD-driven ultra-fast AF system. Part of the premium Super High Grade (SHG) series for Olympus DSLR cameras, the Olympus 14-35mm F2.0 SWD also offers dust-/drip-proofing, a mechanically interlocked manual focusing mechanism, and a large, flower-shaped hood with a polarization filter control window. Priced at $2,299 / £1,999, we find out if the ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 14-35mm F2.0 SWD is the best standard zoom lens that money can buy.
