Nikon AF-S DX Micro-Nikkor 40mm f/2.8G

 

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.

AF-S DX Micro Nikkor 40mm f/2.8G Lens

 

An affordable, macro lens for Nikon's DX-format cameras, which supports life-size reproduction and provides very quiet autofocusing.

Overall performance on the D7100 was very good. Autofocusing was reasonably fast and accurate but we found a small amount of 'play' in the manual focus mode, which could make it difficult to fine-tune focus, particularly when the image was magnified in...

Nikon Nikkor AF-S DX Micro 40 mm f/2.8G

 

In July 2011 the Nikon company quite unexpectedly presented a new lens - the Nikkor AF-S DX Micro 40 mm f/2.8G. It is a macro instrument, with the 1:1 reproduction ratio, designed to cooperate with reflex cameras featuring DX sensor format. It gives...

very good image quality in the frame centre ; good image quality on the edge ; decently corrected chromatic aberration ; practically zero distortion ; splendidly corrected coma ; silent and accurate autofocus

the build quality could have been at least a tad better ; noticeable astigmatism ; slow autofocus ; huge vignetting at the maximum relative aperture ; too weak work against bright light
