At its asking price, the Nikon AF-S DX Micro-Nikkor 40mm f/2.8G ED is one of the great value lenses for APS-C Nikon shooters.

  • +

    Very sharp. 1:1 magnification. Focus limiter switch. Compact. Inexpensive.

  • -

    Lacks stabilization. Not a full-frame lens.

Overall this is a very impressive and inexpensive lens that should bring true macro photography within the grasp of most DX-format camera users. There are a few minor weaknesses, the most obvious of which is relatively sluggish focusing in AF mode, but there is nothing serious to dislike about this...

The AF-S DX Micro-Nikkor 40mm f/2.8G is the most affordable macro lens for Nikon's range of DX format DSLRs, and as an AF-S model, it'll autofocus on any Nikon body. Yes you read this right: it's even cheaper than any lens capable of 1:1 magnification from Sigma or Tamron.

In both capability and cost, this close-up lens is a gift to DX-format (APS-C-sensor) Nikon shooters. A full-frame equivalent of 60mm, it delivers a lot for its meager $280 street price: 1:1 macro shooting, a fast f/2.8 aperture, metal lensmount, and great optics.

I am just a amateur in regards to modern photography. Just starting to learn by trial and error . The Nikon 40mm f/2.8g is amazing . I went to the San Diego Botanical gardens to shoot some close-ups of the flowers blooming as well as the Bees collecting pollen.

This lens simply takes great macro photos; I can't believe it was made for the pro-sumer market! We experimented with supplementary lighting and found that the best pix were invariably captured with available light. Great. I highly recommend it.

  • +

    Small Lightweight Easy to use Takes great macro pix Very reasonable cost Excellent use of available light outdoors

The only thing I have found that is a bit on the neg side is the sun shade doesn't fit as tight as I would like,but it isn't something to cause me to not buy this lense,That's for sure.

I had a 35mm Nikkor, and after doing some reading, the option of having almost the same lens was too much to resist. I wanted a micro lens and with the minute difference in focal lengths, I sold my 35mm and purchased the 40mm.

  • +

    Affordable introduction into the world of micro. Lightweight but built very sturdy. Serves as a sharp everyday "walk around" lens. It's a Nikon.

  • -

    Not good for getting close to living objects as butterflies or such.

I do a lot of macro photography, not bugs or snowflakes, but what the old folk would call "copy work". I am documenting family memorabilia which includes medals, trinkets and many many photographs and documents. I need to be mobile and I need a lens that fits on a Dx D7200 body.

17 January 2013

i'm a beginner. that's actually an overstatement. i've taken a lot of photos w/ this on my d5100 & i've gotten some great shots, but it's hit or miss for me. i know it's the operator, not the lens lol once i get the hang of it, i'm sure all my photos will be great. i don't regret buying this.

Overall, I love this lens. I would say I'm probably an advanced beginner at photography. I am still using my first DSLR (Nikon D3300) and this was the first lens I bought aside from the two that I got with the camera. 40mm is a great focal length for an all purpose lens.

22 November 2014

i am very much a beginner, but I bought everything Nikon brand. No regrets with this lens. I've taken many pictures of bugs with this lens, and I'm usually surprised at what a wonderful job it does.

A real little gem of a lens. Dirt cheap to buy. Excellent, sharp, punchy pictures. Really surprising for a lens this inexpensive. It is light, compact and could easily be used as your all around standard lens.

    What weaknesses?

11 September 2011

Do yourself a favor and find an older AF-D in the 100-200mm range if you want a true macro lens.

  • +

    Its Nikon glass so it is quality and it will AF on all camera's including the lower end models like the D40. Small, lightweight and portable. Good for someone who want's a normal lens comparable to the 35mm for regular shooting, and may have the need to shoot a quick flower or product like jewelery...

  • -

    Its focal length is its greatest weakness. No macro hobbyist would ever use anything under 100mm. Lenses like this force you to get really close which: A: Puts you in your own shadow. B: Scares insects away. C: Forces you to use a ring flash or off shoe.
