NIKON AF-S DX MICRO NIKKOR 40MM F/2.8G

Nikon Inc. has introduced the new lightweight and versatile AF-S DX Micro NIKKOR 40mm f/2.8G lens, which provides Nikon DX-format shooters macro capabilities at an affordable price point. The lens has a minimum focusing distance of 0.53 feet (6.4 inches) to allow users to capture extreme close-up photographs and High Definition (HD) video with a lifesize 1:1 reproduction ratio. Weighing approximately nine ounces, it is an ideal “next” lens to complement any DX-format shooter’s growing D-SLR kit. The natural focal length (60mm, FX equivalent) and large f/2.8 aperture are ideal for a wide variety of applications, whether capturing close-up details in flowers and insects or shooting flattering portraiture. It also features Nikon’s exclusive Silent Wave Motor technology, which allows photographers to get even closer without disturbing a subject. For complete control, the AF-S DX Micro NIKKOR 40mm offers users both manual- priority autofocus (M/A) and manual focus (M) modes to quickly and easily switch focus modes on the fly. The versatile and compact nature of the lens combined with its affordability make it a great travel companion for any DX-format D-SLR, including the new Nikon D5100 and popular D3100.
