The AF-S DX Micro Nikkor 40mm f2.8G is a true 1:1 macro lens for DX format DSLRs like the D90, D5100 and D7000. Incorporating the NIKKOR Silent Wave Motor (SWM) for quiet accurate focus operation, a large f2.8 aperture and a 16.3cm close focusing, this lens is ideal for shooting both intimate close-up details or general portraiture with flattering out of focus elements. When mounted on a DX-format SLR, the picture angle is equivalent to a focal length of about 60mm in 35mm format. More
January 2010 …it turns out that the humble macro lens doesn’t have to be reserved for occasions when you’re knee deep in swamp water and face to face with a frog, or on your belly in a meadow chasing a ladybird through the grass… Get some inspiration here...

A Small Giant

I thought long and hard before purchasing this lens because of the fact that nearly all reviews dwell on the short focal length and the fact that you have to get very close to your subject in order to fill the frame.This can result in the subject being in the shadow which you create and can also cause insects to fly away when you disturb them.Whist these are valid points,the sun is not always shining (sadly )and flowers & many other small static subjects do not have wings ! Having used the lens on many occasions ,I should like to emphasise its outstanding resolution & colour reproduction ,together with its low weight & low price compared to its 105mm sibling.It also doubles up as a first-rate standard lens capable of crystal clear images for general use, including portraiture , with just a little cropping.

Extremely Sharp Focus
Impressive sharpness. Not too bad at macro, although suffers a little from blocking it's own light when you get too close to the subject. Has become my lens of choice now for normal day to day shots, as the clarity is exceptional (much better than the 35mm, 50mm or 18-55mm lenses).
Great little lens

Extremely good close ups for the price. Very happy with it.
