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)
Wether 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.
