AF-S NIKKOR 35mm f/1.4G
When you’re working in extreme, tough environments, you need a set of lenses that can hold their own in harsh weather conditions, whether that’s the intense heat of Vergenoeg in Namibia to the freezing-cold snaps of Igloolik, Nunavut.
I seldom use a long lens; in fact, I don’t even own a zoom-lens. In my opinion, Nikon’s prime lenses are best in class.
The 35mm wide angle lens is perfect for my style of shooting, where I need high quality optics to discover and capture the soul of the subjects I’m photographing. Its quiet auto-focus operation is also crucial for when I’m within metres of a lion or wolf!
