Carry It With You Everywhere

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.

Isolate Your Subjects

Natural Background Blur (Bokeh)

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.

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.

Nikon Silent Wave Motor (SWM) technology icon
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.

Nikon M/A Mode technology icon
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 color consistency and reduced lens flare.

Great Detail at Close Range I recently purchased this Lens for the purpose of capturing small objects at close range. Right out of the box the first few images that I took were astounding. Although it doesn't have zoom feature, it will however focus automatically and I knew this when I purchased it. Some of the sample pictures inspired me to acquire this lens in which I have no regrets. At close range it is very important to utilize a tripod and remote shutter release to avoid or reduce camera shake causing blurry captures. Here is are a few photos using a Nikon D-7100. July 24, 2014
Excellent I do a lot of macro work and I wouldn't be able to shoot what I love without this lens. May 6, 2014
Sharp and affordable! This lens is incredibly sharp. When used for macro work the images you can capture with it are just amazing. You can heavily crop your images as much as you want and you won't loose detail until the file literally starts to pixelate! I love using this lens for macro. You just have to keep in mind that since this lens is only 40mm you will have to watch just how close you get to your subject. I wouldn't recommend this lens for insects but for everything else this lens is just amazing. It will also double as a portrait lens to. This lens has a focus limiter switch which limits the lens from traveling though its entire focus throw. This is handy when the lens isn't being used for macro work. I'd highly recommend this lens if your looking for a small compact macro/portrait lens. It really is a great buy. April 19, 2014
Wonderful Product This lens was an answer to my problems in photographing jewelry for listing at Ebay and other online sales sites. The lens hood gets rid of unwanted glare from sparkling rhinestones or polished gold. I can even successfully photograph the designer stamp (designer name, 925 sterling silver stamp, 12k, 14kGF, etc.) on the back of a piece of jewelry without resorting to a magnifying glass. I just received the lens yesterday and was able to start photographing right away. So easy. I love this lens! March 26, 2014
Excellent lens, high quality, and low price!! I bought this lens to do light macro work and it has exceeded my expectations. I shot a variety of photos, handheld, well below 1/60 with no blur. December 29, 2013

Hi,

I bought P5100 Coolpix camera from B&H some years back. I am not very happy with the images especially with Zoom capabilities, closeups and sharpness of the pictures.

Could you please suggest if I can buy any lens that gives me all these and is also reasonable at price. But I want to make sure that it is really worth buying so is asking in Nikon's website.

Please help with my query.

After closer examination of the instructions it looks like there is an adapter for the 60mm Micro Nikkor but not this 40mm version. Is there something optional that I can buy to remedy this problem?

Answer: 
For landscape and some low light photography, you may get away without a tripod - some experts will tell you different but others will agree. Macro photography however, will be all but impossible without one. The fine adjustments you may need to make within the confines of limited depth of field will make hand held more than just a touch and go proposition.

In short, no matter what the lens and what the use, get a tripod, it will prove useful and there will undoubtedly be plenty of "I wish I had......." times!

It is a 40mm lens designed for use on a DX format body. It's effective focal length on a DX body would be the same as a 60mm lens would be on a full-frame (FX) body.

Sorry for duplicating the question. But neither the lens construction nor specification say ED glass in this lens.

Answer: 
It is neither ED or aspherical. If a lens is ED the ED designation would be printed after the 2.8G Take a look at the specs for the 60mm macro.

At infinity subject distance the max aperture is the published, nice f/2.8.
When set to 0.4m it immediately reduces to f/3 and from this on till 0,163m it falls to a not-even-close-to-nice f/4.2.

Beside this the focal lenght is changing significantly, but i consider it as a result of the non-inner focusing of the lens.

The later can be annoying at composing, but i can live with it.
The max aperture change isn't a big problem either in macro, but f/4.2 is not f/2.8.
So i'm requesting some information if this is normal for this lens or ii got a faulty piece?
