After realizing it’s terrible mistake in the P7000 Nikon has given us something to really get excited about.  After many years an updated version of Nikon’s AIS 35mm f1.4  is available.  The arrival of the AF-S 35mm f1.4 means a couple of things.  First,  Nikon has solidified it’s position in the pro market by providing a fast, sharp prime it the normal range.  Second, prices on the AIS 35mm f1.4 should drop slightly.  If your not opposed to manually focusing that would be a great lens to add to your collection.  Furthermore why buy the 24-70mm when you could have the 24mm f1.4, the 35mm f1.4 and the 85mm f1.4 and actually get sharp pictures.  Specs of the new king normal to follow.
