AF-S DX Micro Nikkor 40mm f/2.8G review
3 April 2014
Summary: Although the AF-S DX Micro Nikkor 40mm f/2.8G has obvious limitations when it comes to macro photography, the pros it offers to entry-level and enthusiast photographers outweigh the cons. The lens is sharp, resolving a great deal of detail, while the multicoated optics produce a good level of contrast and colour.
There are distortions, but these are minimal and easily removed in editing software, or in-camera if you are shooting JPEGs.

Micro Nikkor AF-S DX 40mm f/2.8 G - Review / Test Report
30 September 2011
Conclusion: The Micro-Nikkor AF-S DX 40mm f/2.8 G is a very nice addition to Nikon's line-up of dedicated DX lenses. Image sharpness is excellent in the image center wide open already, the borders and corners show very good resolution, too, when slightly stopped down. Vignetting is quite pronounced wide open, but no issue stopped down. CAs are moderate and easy to deal with in post-processing. Distortion is basically nonexistent and the bokeh very pleasing.
