Slightly longer-than-normal prime is designed for DX-format F-mount cameras and provides a 60mm equivalent focal length.
Ideal for macro shooting, this lens offers a life-size 1:1 maximum magnification along with a minimum focusing distance of 6.4" to suit working with close-up subjects.
A Super Integrated Coating has been applied to individual elements to suppress internal reflections, flare, and ghosting for improved contrast and color accuracy when working in strong lighting conditions.
Silent Wave Motor affords quick, quiet, and precise autofocus performance along with full-time manual focus override.
Rounded seven-blade diaphragm promotes a pleasing out of focus quality that benefits the use of shallow depth of field and selective focus techniques.

question

Will this lens work on a D4 and is it full frame
Asked by: Anonymous
The Nikon AF-S 40mm f/2.8 macro lens, is a DX format lens. While technically you could use it on the D4, the D4 would crop down to DX mode. So, as this is not a full frame lens, it would not be the best choice for a macro lens on the D4. You might look at the Nikon 105mm f/2.8 macro lens (B&H # NI10528GAF). It would be an excellent option for a full frame camera.

Is this lens compatible to D750?

Is this lens compatible to D750?
Asked by: Paranthaman
It is compatible with the D750 but with some limitations. This lens is a DX lens and the D750 is an FX (full frame) camera and so when using this lens, you will only use part of the sensor, reducing the resolution by 40%.

question

I know the barrel of this lens will extend and retract while focusing, but does the barrel rotate while focusing?
Asked by: Anonymous
The barrel of the 40mm f/2.8 lens will not rotate while focusing. This means that using a circular polarizer or variable ND is possible.
