Good idea, Luke.  Unfortunately I have sold most of my older Nikon primes.  But I did hang on to a 35mm, and I'll give it a try. 

Let me take this occasion to walk back my earlier criticism of the new 35/1.8 G.  I used it for some quick head shots, lit very simply by strobes and umbrellas.  ISO was 64 at f8.  But for my natural humility, I would call the results stunning, especially in the reflective/refractive tones of the eyes.  (And here, !SO 64 was not too sharp.)
