GET CLOSER WITH OUR NEW AF-S DX Micro NIKKOR 40mm f/2.8G LENS

Do you fancy entering the world of macro photography? Want to pick out features that the naked eye can’t even see?

Let us introduce our new 40mm DX-format macro lens – an affordable extra lens for all amateur and enthusiasts alike. Designed to let you capture intricate details when shooting close-up, the AF-S DX Micro NIKKOR 40mm f/2.8G boasts a 1:1 reproduction ratio, so is great for capturing true-to-life, life-size shots. It also has a picture angle equivalent to 60mm in FX-format.

Maybe you have struggled to get true precision on some of your close-up shots in the past? That’s where this compact, easy-to-handle AF-S DX Micro NIKKOR 40mm lens, with its super-quiet autofocus, comes into its own, helping achieve accuracy you may not have seen in your images before.

One of the great things about this lens is its versatility. Not only is it ideal for macro, faithfully reproducing objects, subtle features and capturing hidden worlds of pattern, texture and details brilliantly, it’s also superb for portraits and general shots. With a fast maximum aperture of f/2.8, subjects can be singled out against a pleasantly blurred background and sharper handheld shots are possible in low-light.
