About the Nikon 40mm F/2.8

Compact and lightweight DX-format close-up lens

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.

Isolate Your Subjects
Natural Background Blur (Bokeh)
Wether you're shooting portraits, food or nature indoors or outdoors the AF-S DXMicro-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
