Built to capture the finest detail, the AF-S DX Micro NIKKOR 40mm f/2.8G from Nikon delivers stunning close-up shots exposing hidden worlds of patterns and textures practically impossible to detect with the human eye. Wonderfully easy-to-handle, this lens is versatile enough not to limit photographers to one particular subject, shooting macro, portrait and general subjects with outstanding sharpness and beautiful bokeh.
Remarkably light, compact and agile, the AF-S DX Micro NIKKOR 40mm f/2.8G lens serves as an exceptional complement to DX cameras.
Up Close and Personal
Providing high resolution and contrast, this standard focal length lens is a great choice for intricate food photography or detailed product shots. Focusing as close as 0.163m (from focal plane) and boasting a 1:1 reproduction ratio, the AF-S DX Micro NIKKOR 40mm f/2.8G offers true macro performance for close-up photography. With a fast maximum aperture of f/2.8, subjects can be singled out against a pleasantly blurred background and sharper handheld shots are achievable in low-light.
Providing outstanding optical performance, the lens comprises 9 elements in 7 groups and a seven rounded-blade iris diaphragm which renders a beautiful, natural background blur at its wider aperture settings. With the Close-Range-Correction system, the lens elements are configured in a floating element design wherein each lens group moves independently to provide superior picture quality when shooting at close distances.
Nikon's AF-S technology is yet another reason why professional photographers like NIKKOR lenses. Nikon’s exclusive Silent Wave Motor (SWM) converts travelling waves into rotational energy to focus the optics. This enables high-speed autofocusing that’s extremely accurate and super quiet. So for discrete shooting you can set up the shot in an instant and camera focusing won’t disturb sensitive subjects like wildlife.
Combining ease-of-use and maximum precision the AF-S DX Micro NIKKOR 40mm f/2.8G lens has two focus modes. In addition to Manual focus, Manual-priority autofocus (M/A) allows you to switch from autofocus to manual operation with virtually no time lag, even during AF servo operation and regardless of the AF mode in use. This gives all the benefits of fast, automatic focusing while still retaining the ability to make fine focus adjustments before taking the shot.
Cleverly crafted in a way that only an optical manufacturer can understand, Nikon creates technologies that make NIKKOR lenses the best choice for any type of still or moving imagery. Omitting the need for an aperture ring, G-type lens aperture is controlled electronically through the camera. Electronic adjustment is not only very efficient but also allows Nikon to place a weather sealing on the lens mount, so you can shoot with complete confidence.
Small enough to be carried everywhere, the AF-S DX Micro NIKKOR 40mm f/2.8G lens from Nikon will reveal hidden beauty in the smallest subject and the greatest of landscapes.
 The actual focal length of 40mm has an angle of view equivalent to that of a 60mm lens in 35mm  format.

AF is fast and sharp, comes with case, visual focal ring is good, however it can be misleading as the symbols are much bigger than the actual possibility for focal change - there is some play involved, for example, focusing at infinity may be just before or just out, you must use other means to correctly focus accurately.
One small downside is that the shape of the concave results in something of a dust trap. With wide angle (or at least, big lenses that are flush with the outer ring) can have the dust easy brushed of, but the 'hole' in this lens makes it surprisingly more difficult to maintain.
I would definitely recommend this to beginner photographers, or as a first purchase for someone who has never used a prime-lens, but other than that, I would personally say move on.
And I'm really loving this lens! Very sharp through all the picture, fast prime lens. Actually, since I bought it, I mainly keep photographing with it and enjoying a little more creative approach without using the zoom.
Compared to my usual Nikkor 18-70 f3.5-4.5G ED zoom lens the sharpness and the low light speed is just amazing. I've not done much macro photos with it as yet, because I bought it for both ... a bit of macro/close up shoots and also as equivalent to 60mm (on old film cameras) for outdoor/urban/street and bit of portrait photography. Hopefully will find some time soon to post a few photos on my web - [teabum.eu] - for those interested to see.
Generally speaking, I think it's better option then 35mm f1.8 or traditional 50mm f1.8 lenses (my opinion).
