Overview

Standard, 40mm DX-format macro lens. Ideal for getting really close to subjects, it offers a fast maximum aperture of f/2.8 and 1:1 reproduction ratio.


Nikon’s exclusive Silent Wave Motor ensures quiet autofocus so you can shoot up close without disturbing your subject. The fast maximum aperture lets you single out subjects for images with a pleasantly blurred background and contributes towards sharp shots in low-light.


Built to capture fine detail, this wonderfully easy-to-handle lens delivers stunning close-ups as well as great general shots and portraits.
