Product Details

Nikon AF-S DX Micro-NIKKOR 40mm f/2.8G Camera Lens, Model 2200N

Features:

  • Compact and lightweight DX-format close-up lens
    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 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, 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 (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
  • 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 color consistency and reduced lens flare

I bought this lens as a macro lens, but soon discovered that I ended up using it for everything. Image quality is unbelievable, and I cannot fault it in any way. This was a pleasant surprise, as I did not expect anything near this standard considering the price. Build quality is great, and although not built like one of the gold ring lenses, it is on a par with the 35mm f/1.8G and 50mm Gs. Like the 35mm, it is very light and compact, and it makes a nice change to use such a small lens without compromising on image quality! Focus speed is actually rather fast and very accurate. When using this lens for landscape/portrait shots (with the focus limiter switched on), focusing seems instantaneous. I have both this lens and the 35mm DX, and can honestly say that I would pick the 40mm over the 35mm every time. It may not be as fast as the 35mm, but the close focusing ability is very useful, even when I'm not doing 1:1 images. With image quality close to pro lenses, full 1:1 focus capabilities and such a compact body, this has to be one of the best lenses ever!

OK! I didn't go into the store with the idea of coming out with this lens. Micro photography is way outside of what I normally focus on. This lens is just for the heck of it and to have fun. I have messed around with it several times and although I am not into micro photography I can tell you it has caused me to see things differently (to some degree). A good switch up every now and again is good for the eye. If you are stuck in landscape mode this might be the right tool to bring the fun back to your photography. It isn't the cleanest lens but it does the job. Go ahead and get out of your rhythm and try something different.

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!!

Takes your photos to the nexr level

By 

from Union, KY, USA

Comments about Nikon AF-S DX Micro-NIKKOR 40mm f/2.8G Camera Lens:

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!

Superb Versatile Lens

By 

from Texas Hill Country

Comments about Nikon AF-S DX Micro-NIKKOR 40mm f/2.8G Camera Lens:

This amazingly inexpensive diminutive lens is capable of bitingly sharp and gorgeously rendered images that you might expect from a lens costing 4x as much as this one…and don't always get. At every aperture, on my D7100, from f2.8 through f16 (and it is difficult to find much difference in sharpness across the frame), this lens can do the job. Just pick the aperture that suits the situation. The shots included are jpegs with minor cropping and little else in the way of post processing. At 1:1 lighting the subject can be a challenge because of the closeness required and for moving insects, this is probably not the best lens, but for an all-around prime that is capable of ultra-close, tack sharp photography, this little beauty is hard to beat. I have had way too many Nikon and third party lenses, but I have wrongly dismissed this lens for years. If you are looking for your first non-kit lens I would strongly recommend this one, even over the excellent 35mm f1.8G.

Awesome macro lens!!

By 

from Maine, USA

Comments about Nikon AF-S DX Micro-NIKKOR 40mm f/2.8G Camera Lens:

I considered some of the more expensive zoom micro lenses offered by Nikon, but decided to take a chance on this less expensive 40mm prime lens. So glad I took the chance. I am using it on the D7000 body and it works perfectly. Auto-focus is great but I prefer to use the manual focus for extreme close-ups. The clarity of the pictures is terrific and exactly what I was hoping for.

Great DX Macro

By 

from South Carolina, USA

Comments about Nikon AF-S DX Micro-NIKKOR 40mm f/2.8G Camera Lens:

The 40mm 2.8 macro goes wonderful with the D5100 with the drop down monitor. This makes it very easy to put this camera on or near ground level for great angles not normally seen. This lens is lightweight with a high quality lens that cannot be beat for this price. It is just that simple.

i am very much a beginner, but I bought everything Nikon brand. No regrets with this lens. I've taken many pictures of bugs with this lens, and I'm usually surprised at what a wonderful job it does.

High Value Micro Lens

By 

from San Diego, California

Comments about Nikon AF-S DX Micro-NIKKOR 40mm f/2.8G Camera Lens:

This 40mm micro lens performs as well as other micro lenses three times the cost. The photo of the flower below was taken with a Nikon D7000 camera body at the following camera settings: a shutter speed of 1/250 of a second, an aperture of f/8, an ISO of 900, Auto White Balance, and Matrix Metering.

Great Detail at Close Range

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Nikon AF-S DX Micro-NIKKOR 40mm f/2.8G Camera Lens:

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.
