Nikon NIKKOR Z 40mm f/2 Overview

By B&H Photo's

This Nikon NIKKOR Z 40mm f/2 Lens with UV Filter Kit from B&H pairs Nikon's versatile 40mm lens with a useful UV filter for added protection and color accuracy.

Nikon NIKKOR Z 40mm f/2 Lens

An ideal everyday lens, the Nikon NIKKOR Z 40mm f/2 is a versatile prime straddling wide-angle and normal fields of view and featuring a bright f/2 maximum aperture. The distinct focal length is wide enough for spontaneous shooting but still tight enough for portraiture and selective focus shooting. Additionally, the lens's compact, portable form factor makes it perfect for walkaround shooting and equally well-suited to use on FX or DX-format camera bodies.

In terms of handling, a stepping motor AF system offers quiet and smooth focusing performance that benefits both stills and video capture and a programmable control ring can also be set for intuitive adjustment over a variety of camera and exposure settings.

Wide-normal prime lens is designed for FX-format Nikon Z-mount mirrorless cameras and can also be used with DX-format models, where it provides a 60mm equivalent focal length.
Bright f/2 maximum aperture excels in difficult lighting conditions and also offers increased control over depth of field for isolating subjects using depth of field.
Two aspherical elements are featured in the optical design and help to limit spherical aberrations and distortion in order to achieve high sharpness and accurate rendering.
Super Integrated Coating suppresses flare and ghosting for improved contrast and color fidelity when working in strong lighting conditions.
Stepping motor delivers impressively smooth, quiet, and fast autofocus performance that is well-suited to both stills and video applications. Full-time manual focus override is also possible and an internal focusing design is used, where only the internal lens groups are moved during focusing, to maintain the overall length of the lens during use and to promote faster focusing speeds.
Programmable Control Ring is, by default, set to adjust manual focus but can also be used to control aperture or exposure compensation.
Specialized electromagnetic aperture mechanism provides greater exposure control stability that is especially beneficial when working with fast continuous shooting rates.
Rounded nine-blade diaphragm promotes a pleasing out of focus quality that benefits the use of shallow depth of field and selective focus techniques.

Chiaro 52mm 95-UVAT UV Filter

The 52mm 95-UVAT UV Filter is one of Chiaro’s highly-rated protective UV filters with 95% light transmission. It’s useful for photographers of all levels who demand high-quality glass and other essential features for great image fidelity and construction.

To achieve 95% light transmission, Chiaro uses highly-polished optical glass, multi-coating, and additional advanced elements that improve the filter’s light transmission. A hard-anodized aluminum filter ring is designed to screw on and off effortlessly, and it’s thin to prevent vignetting when used with wide-angle lenses.

Image quality is what matters most at Chiaro. The company has tested and combined many features and essentials to achieve superior image quality and the highest light transmission. To help take the confusion out of selecting a filter, Chiaro prominently displays the light transmission levels so you can choose the perfect filter for your lens and photo session.

95% Light Transmission

Protect your lens while maintaining optical quality. By using highly-polished optical glass, Chiaro offers a 95% transmission rate. And the company verifies the ratings with ISO certified lab testing.

Polished Optical Glass

Highly-polished glass is essential to achieve a high level of light transmission. The optical glass in this Chiaro filter is polished for flatness that ensures great optical clarity.


Multi-coating enhances light transmission to the demanding level set for all Chiaro filters. It reduces unwanted internal reflections and ghosting that can compromise your images.

UV Protection

The filter blocks UV light and reduces the bluish cast of daylight that can affect color accuracy, especially at higher altitudes.

Hard Anodized Aluminum Construction

The process of hard anodizing toughens and strengthens the aluminum for a lightweight yet durable filter ring.

Slim Design

Measuring only 3.2mm, this filter is slim enough to use on wide-angle lenses without experiencing vignetting.

Top Knurling

Top knurling is designed to offer a firm grip on the filter when you're attaching or removing it.

Secure Attachment

It takes two full turns to mount the filter on your lens. This feature will securely hold your Chiaro filter through the most demanding photo shoots.

Front Threads

The front threads on the filter allow you to stack filters by screwing them onto your Chiaro filter.

Versatile Little Lens

By Alex

Great lens, especially for the price. The build quality could probably be better, but for the price I couldn't expect more. The lens is small enough, but I wouldn't call it a pancake, it might be slightly bigger than the FTZ adaptor. Image quality is exceptional for the price, I would expect this image quality out of a lens 2-3 times its price. Overall, I would buy this lens again and feel confident recommending it to others.

Wish the 50mm f1.8 were this size

I have the 50mm f1.8 and recently got this lens specifically to have a nice compact body/lens combo for street photography. I'm still adjusting to the extra 10mm of coverage, but I'm very pleased with the form factor. The images look great, and the Z5 with the lens doesn't draw a lot of attention (which was the goal). It is a great little lens.

This should be the first Z lens you buy.

This is such a great value and it's pleasantly runty on the Z5. This is a no brainer to get as soon as you decide you want to use the Z system. It's a fantastic nifty fifty.

Great Street Lens

By Gerald

Aside from some reservations about the feel of light plastic in the build, this is an excellent street lens at an appealing, for me, now focal length. My serious lens is the 24-70 2.8, but when I just want to toss a camera (gently) in the bag 'just in case,' this seems right. And the 2.0 is a prize.

Great lens

This lens is sharp even @ f2 and quiet when focusing. The picture quality is great and it is relatively inexpensive.

This lens now resides on the Z6 and is used on a daily basis. Sharp and bright, with a wonderful shallow depth of field. It is light and for me has unleashed the Fun factor of a Mirrorless Z6!

Just what the doctor ordered for a light set up great for walk around and familiy photos at a great price.

Asked by: Ricardo
As far as we are aware, the new Nikon NIKKOR Z 40mm f/2 does not have the same weather-resistant gasket available in their S-series lenses like the NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8 S. However, according to Nikon, the 40mm (and 28mm f/2.8) have "a design with consideration of dust- and drip-resistant performance".
