Nikon D5100 - Part 8 - 35mm f/1.8 lens.

Its a shame there aren't more lenses like this from Nikon. Small fast primes for their APS-C sensor cameras. The 35mm f/1.8 is a decent lens and provides a good fast "standard" lens for low light.

To give an idea of the relative size of the D5100 fitted with this lens, here are some pictures of it next to a Panasonic GH2 fitted with the 7-14mm zoom.

As you can see its not that much bigger. The body is also only 100g heavier than the GH2, so its very light and small for a DSLR.

Here it is next to a Leica M9.
