    Wide angle is anything less than 50mm, so yes, 35mm would count. Lower than 24mm it's already ultra wide angle.

    Is is suitable? Any lens is suitable, it all depends on your needs and what you're trying to shoot.

    Well, sure, why not?

    As Raskae said, yea, strictly speaking it is a wide-angle.

    Hi Learner321,

    The AI-S 35/1.4 will not meter on your D90. See pg. 230 of your manual for compatibility with AI lenses. Btw a 35mm lens used on full frame camera is wide angle, but on the D90 it will become 52mm after 1.5x crop factor and is no longer considered wide angle.
