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

Available Today

The 40mm f2.8 DX Micro is a very nice “all around” prime lens. Although it doesn’t have the very wide aperture of some primes, f/2.8 is still more than adequate for most conditions. The focal length on a DX camera is good for street shooting, full length portraits, and outdoor architectural shots, plus it gives you a Macro lens in your bag suitable for close-up work (and it’s a true 1:1 macro, not just sort-of-macro). Plus, it’s small and lightweight so it doesn’t take up a ton of room in your bag, and it’s inexpensive so it doesn’t take up a lot of room in your budget.

This is a DX lens, should only be used with DX (crop sensor) cameras

Personally, I find short focal-length macro lenses difficult to work with because you have to get so close to the subject. But at this price, with the superb image quality this lens has, it’s really a compelling lens for anyone shooting a DX camera. Heck, it’s even weather sealed. Even if you don’t really want to shoot macros, this is a great little lens.
