Sharp images from infinity to life size (1:1)

This standard close-up lens captures the finest details at any distance, including details practically impossible to detect with the human eye. It’s a great choice for enticing food photography or detailed product shots. And with its continuous autofocusing from infinity to 16.3 cm (life-size 1:1 reproduction ratio), the Nikon AF-S DX 40mm f/2.8G Macro lens 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.
