" Nikon 35mm f1.8 atm"

 

Well I have no idea what lens that is. I do own and shoot Nikon.  But, I have the Nikon 35mm f/1.8G AF-S ED NIKKOR Lens.  I will still tell you it is no better than my Canon EF 35mm f/2 IS USM Lens.  Actually it isn't as good.

 


The EF 35mm f/2 IS USM is an excellent lens.  I like photographing landscapes and cityscapes with it.

 

It is one of my favorite lenses to use on those days when I give myself a photography assignment, like spending part of a day only photographing blue stuff, or only square or round stuff.  Shooting with a prime for a day forces me to think about composition, instead of just standing around and twisting a zoom ring.  

 

These self imposed assignments have gotten me in the habit of seeing the world differently and taking shots that I would have otherwise totally overlooked.  I think every photo enthusiast should have a fast prime in their lens kit.  They not only do they take great photos, but they are a great learning tool.  

A lens like the EF 50 f/1.8 STM should be in every photographer’s bag.  Not only is it less expensive than most photography classes, it is something that you would want to have, anyway, if you did take a photography class.

Atm stands for commony used term, at the moment.

Link to described lens is in same post you quote half sentence from, and yes 4 times more expensive lens will be better, those linked lab tests show it, one true megapixel more for four ties more expensive lens, step darker, without auto/manual mode.
