Nikon is pleased to introduce the NEW AF-S DX Micro-NIKKOR 40mm f/2.8G lens.
Reveal Hidden Beauty
Nikon is pleased to announce the next great Micro-NIKKOR lens, the AF-S DX Micro-NIKKOR 40mm f/2.8G. Small enough to carry anywhere, 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 great for taking high quality stills or cinematic HD D-Movies and is ideal for anyone from snap-shooters to photo enthusiasts.
Carry It With You Everywhere
Shoot general interest photos, high magnification close-ups, delicate flowers, detailed collectables, copy photography, portraits, landscapes and more. Focusing as close as 6.4 inches, this new 40mm Micro lens allows photographers to capture breathtaking close-up images with life-size reproduction ratios up to 1:1, helping to ensure that even the subtlest of subject detail is reproduced faithfully.
Isolate Your Subjects
The new 40mm Micro-NIKKOR, in conjunction with Nikon DX-format digital SLR cameras, renders a picture angle equivalent of approximately 60mm (in the 35mm or FX-format), providing a natural perspective along with a desirable and practical lens-to-subject working distance.
• 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 autofocusing 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.
