Get closer than you could imagine

Macro photography promises fun, unique ways of capturing the things that amaze you most, whether it's the petal of a flower, the eye of an insect or the tiny toes of a newborn baby. The AF-S DX Micro NIKKOR 40mm f/2.8G provides high resolution and contrast from infinity to life-size (1X) so that you can focus extra close on your subjects, allowing you to get lost in the tiny details of life.
 

Reveal Hidden Beauty

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). 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)

Whether you're shooting portraits, food or nature—indoors or outdoors—the AF-S DX Micro-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.
 

Carry It With You Everywhere

Stunning portraits and landscapes, too!

The AF-S DX Micro-NIKKOR 40mm f/2.8G is compact, lightweight and versatile enough for everyday photography, including flattering people shots and breathtaking landscapes, so you get brilliant results in most situations without switching lenses.
 

More than just macro

Marvel at the details you can capture

The AF-S DX Micro NIKKOR 40mm f/2.8G is excellent at capturing natural surroundings as well as using it for super close-ups. Its ability to render fine detail make this a standout for landscape work.
 
 
The Close-Range Correction (CRC) system is one of Nikon's most important focusing innovations, for it provides superior picture quality at close focusing distances and increases the focusing range. With CRC, the lens elements are configured in a "floating element" design wherein each lens group moves independently to achieve focusing. This ensures superior lens performance even when shooting at close distances. The CRC system is used in fisheye, wide-angle, micro and selected medium telephoto NIKKOR lenses.
AF-S NIKKOR lenses feature Nikon’s Silent Wave Motor (SWM). This technology converts “travelling waves” into rotational energy to focus the optics. This enables high-speed autofocusing that's extremely accurate and super quiet. Select NIKKOR lenses have a focusing mode which allows switching from automatic to manual focusing with virtually no lag time by simply turning the focusing ring on the lens. This makes it possible to seamlessly switch to fine manual focusing while looking through the viewfinder.
Super Integrated Coating Nikon Super Integrated Coating is Nikon's term for its multilayer coating of the optical elements in NIKKOR lenses.
