  • Excerpt: Nikon has brought the macro lens goodness (btw: Nikon calls macro, Micro) for DX-format shooters with the new, portable Nikon AF-S DX Micro-NIKKOR 40mm f/2.8G ($279) . For less than $300, this lens is a steal and a must-have for anyone within the Nikon D40 to D7000 range. Delivering high-resolution, contrast-filled photos with gobs of background blur, this lightweight 40mm lens will shoot anything from infinity to life-size (1x).

  • Excerpt: While I hope to create a full Nikon 40mm f/2.8G AF-S DX Micro Lens evaluation, my first priority is to include results from this lens in the lens comparison tools. This page currently exists because it is required by the database and content management systems for the posting of those standard test results.

Lens Test: Nikon 40mm f/2.8G AF-S DX Micro

Pop Photo

  • Excerpt: In both capability and cost, this close-up lens is a gift to DX-format (APS-C-sensor) Nikon shooters. A full-frame equivalent of 60mm, it delivers a lot for its meager $280 street price: 1:1 macro shooting, a fast f/2.8 aperture, metal lensmount, and great optics. The closest Nikkor with 1:1 subject magnification, the full-frame 60mm f/2.8, costs nearly twice as much.

AF-S DX Micro 40 mm f/2.8G

  • Excerpt: 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 the same angle of view as a 60 mm device on full frame (so 39 degrees).
  • Cons: 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.

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

  • Excerpt: As noted earlier, the lens has a Silent Wave Motor for quiet auto-focus operation. At normal distances, focusing is quite fast for a macro lens. In the macro range, focusing may take longer. Also note that while you can limit focus from infinity to 0.2m for non-macro work, there's no such option for the macro range, so if the AF system misses the subject, extensive hunting might occur. Focusing manually is thus often a better idea when doing extreme close-ups.

Nikon AF-S Micro Nikkor 40mm F2.8G DX

18 November 2011
  • Summary: Nikon tilbyr originale makroobjektiver på 200, 105, 85 og 60 mm, og de suppleres nå med et femte på 40 mm. Det er et DX-objektiv, som bare kan brukes på kameraer med APS-C-sensor. Omregnet tilsvarer brennvidden 60 mm. Det nye objektivet fokuserer til en gjengivelse på 1:1 med den lydløse fokusmotoren. På siden av objektivet sitter det to knapper. Den ene skifter mellom manuell og autofokus, og den andre begrenser fokusområdet til mellom 20 cm og uendelig.

  • Summary: Żeby nie kończyć tego podsumowania zbyt pesymistycznie, muszę pochwalić firmę Nikon za umiejętny rozwój systemu, w którym coś dla siebie znajdzie zarówno amator z mniejszym budżetem, jak i zawodowiec. Nie pamiętam już kiedy Canon, czyli główny konkurent Nikona, wypuścił na rynek stałoogniskowy obiektyw w cenie poniżej 2500 zł. Nikon takich premier miał ostatnio sporo.
  • Pros: bardzo dobra jakość obrazu w centrum kadru,, dobra jakość obrazu na brzegu kadru,, przyzwoicie korygowana aberracja chromatyczna,, praktycznie zerowa dystorsja,, świetnie korygowana koma,, cichy i celny autofokus.
  • Cons: jakość wykonania mogłaby być choć trochę lepsza,, zauważalny astygmatyzm,, wolny autofokus,, spore winietowanie na maksymalnym otworze względnym,, zbyt słaba praca pod ostre światło.
