  • 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 collectibles, 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

  • 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

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great option if you are on a budget I've been using this lens for a few months off and on with a D5300. The only thing that isn't great about this lens is the auto focus. It constantly rotates the dial back and forth, and I've waited minutes for it to either take the image, or I just turn the camera off. So I pretty much only shoot in manual. I did notice this problem would get worse the more you zoomed in you get. Despite the auto focus, I'm happy. I was looking for an inexpensive macro lens for product photography, and I found this one does the job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Truly excellent lens "This is a great lens in Nikon DX range. It's an unassuming f2.8 lens, small and light but has terrific image quality, excellent contrast and resolution across the width of the frame and apertures. Distortion - has none. It makes a good ""normal"" lens at the equivalent of 60mm in FX speak. With f2.8 on DX and 60mm focal range, you can isolate the foreground. You can't deny physics though. To get a fast enough, small, light, quality lens, you do so with a short focal length. That means that for macro photography, you are very close to your subject. It also means that you will have a deeper depth of field at the same aperture as longer lens. Depending on what you like to shoot, that may be limiting or advantageous for you. Positives: small, light, sharp, contrasty, and distortion-free, more depth of field, excellent value. Negatives: Not that fast, no VR feature, bigger depth of field. This is a great lens. Get in or out and shoot!"

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's ok.. I was expecting this lens to take better images of things far away but it doesn't really do all that great. The product description made it seem like this lens would do more than just a close-up images. But the images I have taken that are far away did not come out good at all. now take a picture of something with in several inches of the lens and you get a fantastic image with a very shallow depth of field. So in the respect of taking pictures of small things like a pinch of dirt or hermit crab or a butterfly or a bug or a snowflake or close ups this lens is pretty awesome. I do think the product description should be changed slightly to reflect the correct function of this lens.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a pleasant little surprise I do a lot of macro photography, not bugs or snowflakes, but what the old folk would call "copy work". I am documenting family memorabilia which includes medals, trinkets and many many photographs and documents. I need to be mobile and I need a lens that fits on a Dx D7200 body. Dx lenses for Dx bodies. I have and use a 60mm but this lens is much smaller, lighter and has excellent image quality. It fits better in the bag and thus allows me more opportunity. The problem with this lens is that I think it's sharper and better than the 35mm f1.8, about which everyone raves ... so, I am adapting this lens for portraits and for panoramic stitching projects also. At this size, weight and price, it is perfect for many purposes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from From now on, my favorite lens... I am so glad that I did purchase this compact lens. Finally i can do close ups and portraits with same lens + its also good for landscape shots. I paired this lens with my old D80 witch is still good camera end my photos looks incredible. This lens is better that 35mm in my opinion, i see more use with new 40mm. Thanks NIkon!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Takes your photos to the nexr level I own a D3000 and I was hoping to get a lens that would take my photographs to the next level until I could afford a better model and this lens has done just that for me! The images are so crisp and the colors really pop with this lens, and the images are flawless even when raw and unedited. I would recommend this lens to anyone!
