The AF-S DX Micro-NIKKOR 40mm f/2.8G close-up lens captures stunning details at any distance, including details practically impossible to detect with the human eye at 1X magnification.
Compact and lightweight DX-format close-up lens
The AF-S DX Micro-NIKKOR 40mm f/2.8G is great for taking high quality stills and cinematic 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).
Autofocus to 6.4 inches
Continuous auto-focusing from infinity to 6.4 inches (life-size / 1X).
Close range Correction System (CRC)
Using Nikon’s innovative floating element design, each lens group moves independently to achieve focus – providing high performance at both near and far distances.
Silent Wave Motor (SWM)
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.
M/A (Manual/Auto) focus mode switch
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.
Nikon Super Integrated Coating (SIC)
Enhances light transmission and offers superior color consistency and reduced flare.
Rounded 7-blade diaphragm
Renders a beautiful, natural background blur (Bokeh) at its wider aperture settings.
