Great Macro Lens

A Photography Student, B&H Photo
23 August 2014
  • Excerpt: I purchased this lens with the intention of using it to take macro shots of flowers, and it has worked very well so far. The only issue that I have had is that it sometimes takes a little while for it to focus. It was well worth the money, though, and I would recommend getting it.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Great For Macro Shots, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Slow Focus

EXCELLENT OPTICS - GREAT VALUE

Photophanatic, B&H Photo
11 April 2014
  • Excerpt: Because I do not own a Nikon DX DSLR, I am using this lens on my Nikon 1v1 via the Nikon FT1 for closeups of flowers and insects and am greatly impressed with its optical quality. It also serves well for informal portrait work. Given the lens quality it's an excellent value.

Nice little lens

Aspiring Macro Gal, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I have only had this lens for a short time and have not used it all that much but for the few times I have I am well pleased. Nikon lenses have a very sharp image. Can't wait to get out and do more macro photography.

Great for close-up work

DCBoomer, B&H Photo
9 April 2014
  • Excerpt: For close-up and still-life work this lens fits the bill perfectly. Very sharp output, and no fringing or other color issues that I've seen. Nice bokeh, too. It's also good - not great - as a fast general-purpose lens, although with the 1.5x crop factor on my D7100 it's obviously not a sweeping landscape or family reunion group photo lens. It's solid yet light, and is well-built.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
  • Cons: Sometimes Jumpy Af

Great Macro Capability

Hiro, B&H Photo
24 March 2014
  • Excerpt: I'm very happy with its macro capability. I do product photography and I am very happy to be able to take very close shots and the quality of the photos. There is one thing that I'm concerned is that it started to shaking and making noise when the cylinder moves to focus, occasionally. If it continues, I would take it to Nikon for warranty service. But over all, really great inexpensive macro lens.

Great versatile lens for a great price!

The Photo Hopper, B&H Photo
7 February 2014
  • Excerpt: I wanted a macro lens that didn't break the bank so I looked at this 40mm. I don't do much insect or animal macro photography so the lack of a zoom function does not bother me. Using this macro in a studio setting as well as in nature for stills has yielded some very nice and sharp images. It has also shown to be a very nice addition to my portrait arsenal. It becomes very easy to achieve the blur background effect that portrait photographers love.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight, Versatile
