Nikkor 35mm f/1.4

Nikon has announced the NIKKOR Z 35mm f/1.4. Compact, fast, and sharp, this 35mm full-frame prime lens is design to always be ready to respond to the moment with a classic perspective! It’s ideal for street photography as well as travel reportage or events—and it’s perfect for shooting video too. Both photographers and video shooters will enjoy real flexibility in working creatively with natural light and boundless portability from the lightweight build.

Few lenses are as versatile as a fast 35mm prime, and the NIKKOR Z 35mm f/1.4 is the first Nikon Z lens to boast a creative f/1.4 aperture, allowing real flexibility when shooting with available light. Photographers and video shooters can shoot wide open at f/1.4 and be rewarded with large, beautifully soft bokeh, perfect for candid or environmental portraits that set a subject apart—as well as creative backlit shots. Low-light scenes can be captured with stunning clarity and sharpness, and faster shutter speeds can be used to freeze action without sacrificing brightness.

Whether drawn to visual compositions or narrative depth, street photography thrives on the unexpected—and the NIKKOR Z 35mm f/1.4 lens is primed to nail the instant that the elements come together. Always quick to react, its autofocus is beautifully smooth and steady, and a close focusing distance of just 0.27 m gives users plenty of scope to take a step forward and fill the frame with sharp shots of intriguing details or record video in tight spaces. In addition, this 35mm full-frame lens boasts a lightweight build and is carefully sealed, which is an advantage for anyone who wants the freedom to walk further and explore what’s around the corner, no matter the weather.

“We’re excited to unveil the new 35mm f/1.4 lens, a timeless focal length beloved by photographers for its versatility and natural perspective. This addition to our range of Nikon Z full-frame prime lenses is designed to inspire creativity, helping photographers tell their stories with beautiful, expressive images. It’s more than just a lens—it’s a gateway to artistic exploration.”
