Nikon AF-S 40mm Micro f2.8 DX G Lens

Sorry, we have no items in stock.


The Nikon AF-S 40mm Micro f2.8 DX G is a true macro lens that offers full lifesize 1:1 (1x) magnification for breathtaking closeup photography. As it focuses from 6.4” all the way to infinity, this lens can be left on the camera for all other kinds of general photography including portraits and landscapes, the 40mm perspective being particularly pleasing to the eye. Its bright f/2.8 maximum aperture and light weight make this a viable proposition.

This high resolution and high contrast lens is also suitable for movies thanks to its extra fast and quiet Silent Wave Motor which uses ultrasound, inaudible to the human ear, to move the lens barrel. If you prefer to manually focus a particular image, all you need do in M/A Mode is move the focus barrel on the lens and it will automatically detect your override, giving you instant control.

Get closer
Macro photography promises fun, unique ways of capturing the things that amaze you most. The AF-S DX Micro NIKKOR 40mm f/2.8G lens provides high resolution and contrast from infinity to life-size (1:1 reproduction ratio) so that you can focus extra close on your subjects.

Sharp images from infinity to life size (1:1)
This standard close-up lens captures the finest details at any distance, including details practically impossible to detect with the human eye. It's a great choice for enticing food photography or detailed product shots. And with its continuous autofocusing from infinity to 16.3 cm (life-size 1:1 reproduction ratio), the AF-S DX Micro NIKKOR 40mm f/2.8G lens ensures sharpness and clarity in every composition.

Natural background blur
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.

Stunning portraits and landscapes
The AF-S DX Micro NIKKOR 40mm f/2.8G is compact, lightweight, and versatile enough for everyday photography. Capture flattering people shots and breath-taking landscapes. Enjoy brilliant results in most situations without switching lenses.
