I acquired another copy of the Nikon Nikkor 35mm F2 recently, an Ai-S version this time, and took these sample shots just to ensure me that the lens is, as expected, an excellent performer equal to that of the Ai version which I posted a few years back.

The Nikkor 35mm F2, with its 8 elements in 6-group optics, has been in production since it was first launched in 1965. While the optics formula of the lens has remained the same, the lens body and mechanicals have undergone continuous improvements and revisions. The glass also went from a single coat in amber, then blue (-C), and was multicoated for the last three decades. The AI-s version was in production from 1981 to 2005.
