NIKON AF-S DX MICRO-NIKKOR 40MM F2.8G


 
  • DX-format Close-up Lens
  • 1X Magnification
  • Natural Background Blur (Bokeh)
  • Filter Diameter: 52mm
  • Standard DX-format close-up lens captures stunning details at any distance including details practically impossible to detect with the human eye at 1X magnification
  • Small enough to be carried everywhere, this standard focal length DX-format Micro-NIKKOR lens provides high resolution and contrast from infinity to life-size (1X)
  • AF-S DX Micro-NIKKOR 40mm f/2.8G is for taking high quality stills and HD D-Movies and is ideal for shooting general close-ups, delicate flowers, detailed collectables, copy photography, portraits, landscapes and more
  • Sharp images from infinity to life-size (1X):
  • This standard close-up lens captures the finest details at any distance, including details practically impossible to detect with the human eye (at 1X magnification).
  • It's a great choice for enticing food photography or detailed product shots.
  • And with its continuous autofocusing from infinity to 6.4 inches (life-size /1X), the AF-S DX Micro-NIKKOR 40mm f/2.8G ensures sharpness and clarity in every composition
  • Stunning portraits and landscapes:
  • AF-S DX Micro-NIKKOR 40mm f/2.8G is compact, lightweight and versatile enough for everyday photography, including flattering people shots and breathtaking landscapes, so you get brilliant results in most situations without switching lenses
  • Natural Background Blur (Bokeh):
  • Whether you're shooting portraits, food or nature-indoors or outdoors-the AF-S DX Micro-NIKKOR 40mm f/2.8G's rounded 7-blade diaphragm renders a beautiful, natural background blur (Bokeh) at its wider aperture settings.
  • Selective focus helps to isolate the subject, creating out of focus backgrounds
  • Superior Close Range Focusing:
  • The Close-Range Correction system is one of Nikon's most important focusing innovations.
  • Using an innovative floating element design, each lens group moves independently to achieve superior performance at close distances
  • Quiet Autofocus:
  • A significant innovation in AF lens technology, Nikon's Silent Wave Motor uses ultrasonic (inaudible) vibrations-rather than a gear system-to focus the lens, providing incredibly smooth, silent and precise autofocus operation
  • Quick Switching from AF to MF:
  • When fine manual focusing is needed, simply rotate the lens focus ring-M/A mode allows you to seamlessly override the AF system with virtually no time lag
  • Reduce Lens Flare and Ghosting:
  • Nikon's Super Integrated Coating enhances light transmission efficiency and offers superior colour consistency and reduced lens flare

  • Better than the "nifty-fifty"

  • November 29, 2011
  • By: Isagani

Got this lens from Oakville location. This is my second best purchase next to the D7000. This lens isn't just an amazing macro lens but also an excellent portrait lens. Super sharp, vivid and crisp images. I also have a 50mm f1.8 D and a 17-50 fast lens but I like using this lens better. It's mounted to my DSLR body 85% of the time. Small but very useful lens whether you are 2" or 2 yards away from the subject. Well lit or low lit.

  • Nikon Macro Lens

  • August 01, 2013
  • By: Dale

It's only been one day, but I am impressed with it so far. I can't compare with other macros because it is the first that I have had. The only problem is not with the lens, but with the lens hood. If it can lock on, then I have yet to figure out how. But, that has nothing to do with the lens.

  • Awsome Lens

  • March 09, 2012
  • By: Robert

Bought this lens a couple of months and have rarely taken it off my camera. I have used it for all sorts of shooting from extreme closeups to some interesting landscape shots. The lens is priced as low budget but it performs spectacularily. This is one of the best things I have purchased for my camera. Special thanks to the Barrie staff for their expertise and help. rpm
