    35mm 1.8 refurb

    After reading many pages and reviews, I pulled the trigger on a refurb 35mm 1.8 lens from the Nikon usa site. Should be here in a few days. It will used on my d3300 which I picked up last week. Any tips or suggestions?

    Thanks

    I've done eons w/ that one, even on FX.

    As far as I recall anyway, that entire thing was 35/1.8G DX on my D600 in FX mode.

    Werent that great w/ 5100 and flash even, so as good as 1.8 is, it won't save from a bad low-light sensor. I know belief is glass > body, but a solid body as a baseline helps miles above and beyond proper glass to go with it from my exp, and you just saw that I do push my gear to its limits on average.

    I love the 35mm 1.8, I think it is arguably the best value lens you can possibly get.
