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). The Nikon 40mm f/2.8G AF-S DX Micro-Nikkor Lens 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, too! - The 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 - Wether 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.

Mark M. from Pleasantville, Somewhere on March 28, 2017:
I bought this lens a couple of years ago as a special purchase, in part because of its price, and most critically, because of its close focus (.163 m, or 6.42"). Although this isn't a normal-perspective lens on a D7000 (the 28mm lens is), it is nicely suited for "normal" distance photography. Contrast and definition are crisp; this can be readily seen on an overcast day. Close-up, the lens is sharp. Limitations: if used hand-held, the shutter speed used must be fast, (at least 1/1000 sec or faster) or else motion blur will mar the shots. This is a lens best used with a tripod when used for close-up work inside of 18". I think the 85 mm or longer micro lens might be a better choice for outdoor shooting. This is more specialed lens, good for the studio and process work, such as copying, and controlled close-ups. I still recommend this lens, however.

The AF-S 40mm f2.8 DX lens is awesome for taking up close wildlife pictures. I am using it to take close ups of baby hummingbirds in their nest. People comment on how great the digital photos look. I ordered the lens on-line and had it in 2 days. Samy's customer service was fast and great as they always are.
